Melissa & Mario's love story began when two strangers met on a hot summer day in July 2013. Mario thanked his lucky stars that he had decided to go across the border for Mexican food that evening with friends. The Mexican Town restaurant was packed with many Canadian patrons that evening since they were featuring "Canadian-at-par". Mario got a glimpse of this beautiful girl who kept smiling at him every time he looked her way. He finally got the courage to go and talk to her and maybe be fortunate enough to get her number.
Fast forward 2 years of a committed long distance relationship. Because of their love for superhero's and fairy tale endings, the couple planned a super romantic vacation to Disney World. Mario knew that the happiest place on earth would be the perfect place to propose to his soul mate. On July 23rd, 2015, after a magical dinner at Cinderella's Castle, a dome plate was placed in front of Melissa and inside was a glass slipper covered in rose pedals that said "Together Forever". The excitement from the table beside them erupted when they realized that Melissa was being proposed to. The cheers, the clapping, the happiness, filled the room when Mario got down on one knee and ask the girl of his dream's to be his wife.
For the engagement session, we knew that it had to take place at this iconic landmark that literally represents the bond between two countries, two people and one love. I love capturing the sweet moments between you two, you forgot I was around you and you had eyes only for one another.
Melissa & Mario, thank you for spending the afternoon with me. It was an awesome time to get to know you a little more, to spend a few hours wandering and finding the beautiful light and to document this special moment in your engagement!
Can't wait for their wedding this July!
