Winter Engagement Session Ontario
Susie and Geoff tie the knot today and I’m excited to spend the day with this fun loving couple!
Tell us the story of how the two of you met.
Back in 2014, Susie and Geoff were both pretty happy, but they both wanted someone special to share their happinesses with. Geoff thought that he ought to get to know a girl he had recently met online.
Geoff asked her for a casual date – going out for a drink at Wink’s downtown London. Susie was excited. She walked there from her nearby apartment. Susie checked her reflection in each building window she passed by to make sure she still looked awesome. She did.
When she arrived, Geoff was standing outside waiting. What a great looking guy!
Their one drink took about 4 hours. They talked and talked. Needless to say, they hit it off. Both were soccer fans who enjoyed a good math puzzle and a good book. Geoff was also probably very impressed by Susie’s awesome puns. After many fun times dating, they decided they couldn’t handle the 5 minute drive from one another’s apartments – so they moved in together!
It was a wonderful idea, since they now had more time for puzzles, board games, and cooking together. A little while later, they decided that they wanted to continue this adventure – so one warm summer evening in Victoria Park, Geoff got down on one knee and popped the question. Susie said yes!
And here we are now, about to start a whole new chapter in this love story.
Tell me the proposal story (the long version is fine)
We went out for dinner downtown London last August at Waldo’s. After dinner we decided to go for a walk around Victoria park. This wasn’t an out of the ordinary thing for when we went downtown, so Susie had no suspicions about what would happen. Eventually, Geoff suggested we sit down on the bench for a bit. We were talking about the trip out east to Nova Scotia that we would be taking that week to meet some of Geoff’s aunts, uncles, and cousins. Geoff asked me, “should I introduce you as my girlfriend or… my fiance?” (so sweet). I didn’t quite catch on until Geoff got down on his knee with a ring. I said yes!
And then a couple who were out for a walk got so excited for us and they took our picture – it was great to have a photo of right when we got engaged.
What is your favourite memory together (other than those mentioned above)?
this is a hard one! Our top two would be our trip to Chicago last year and moving into our new house.
What do you love most about each other?
What Susie loves about Geoff – so much! I love that he is sweet and funny and likes puzzles. He cares about me and wants me to be happy and he cares about our families too.
What Geoff loves about Susie – that she is very unselfish and always puts her family and friends needs before hers.
How do you hope your friends and family see your wedding?
Relaxed, fun, and full of love
Why did you choose us?
We looked through the different wedding photos and your style stood out as something we could see ourselves in. When we met you, you also seemed very knowledge and easy to work with (and you are!).
