I know I keep talking about how cold the winter was in Toronto, but it’s true! Shannon and Ian here had a cherry blossom request for the engagement session earlier this spring and after watching the weather roller coaster very very closely, we decided not to hold our breath. For those who don’t know – the precious window for cherry blossoms is only about a week. I walked the U of T is grounds the day of the session with plenty of other ideas up my sleeve and after turning one corner, I stopped dead in my tracks to an answered prayer. The blossoms had arrived and were in full bloom, and Shannon was all smiles upon seeing the blossoms herself! The timing was impeccable, and it really set the tone for the rest of the day.
Shannon is a friend of mine from high school and university, and if there’s one thing that hasn’t changed, it’s Shannon’s contagious laugh. With Ian making her giggle throughout the day, it was hard to not laugh myself. I’m sure my belly will hurt from all the laughter on their big day. Ian is hands down and a one of the sweetest gentleman I’ve ever met, and I’m so very happy that my dear friend is marrying him. Now that summer is upon us, the countdown is on for their September wedding!
