Our Story

After six years of dating, renting a condo and a townhouse, purchasing our first home, adopting three cats and one puppy, three vacations and countless marathons of Friends and Harry Potter...

we are FINALLY getting married!!!

Our story began back in February 2013 (technically, it began in September 2005, when we met in high school!)....

I was in my final semester of university, working on an assignment in the computer lab, when I got a message on Facebook. I noticed it was from Michael - he said something along the lines of having had a crush on me back in high school and had asked if he could take me out for drinks some time. Although I was hesitant at first to accept, since I hadn't really thought of dating again at that time, I said yes, and we went on our first date a few days later. On our date, we instantly clicked! The conversation was effortless, we laughed, shared stories and talked for hours, until we realized the bar was closing. After he drove me home that night, I knew I had fallen for him already... and six years later, here we are! I am excited to see what the future has in store for us, and I look forward to growing our family and spending forever with Michael!

It has been just over a year since I proposed to Rebecca and it was the most nerve racking experience of my life. I could barely speak when she opened the poorly wrapped Christmas gift that was an engagement ring. I got down on one knee and fumbled for words and couldn't be happier that she said yes. The last six years has been full of surprises and we have already started building our life together - with a dog, two cats and house, we have set the perfect foundation for our future!
