Engagements

We absolutely loved Jess and Wes’ Toronto Islands Engagement Session!! But even before that day, we loved hearing the story of how they met.

Jessica and Wesley sat across from each other at a group lunch. Jessica was new at Wesley’s church, and Wesley wanted to make her feel at home. He introduced himself and said, “Tell me about yourself.” How was he to know she didn’t like open-ended questions? After that conversation, they didn’t really speak for three years.

Jessica and Wesley reconnected when they found themselves on the same softball league, but on opposing teams. They told us that their relationship was a low-key one and they seemed slightly unsure as to how Wes asked Jessica to be his girlfriend in the first place. From what we could gather, it went something like this:

“Do you want to be my girlfriend?”

“Okay.”

Their proposal was more eventful, but true to form. Wesley spent six months designing a beautiful custom ring and carried it with him for two months. It was around Christmastime that he found the perfect circumstance to pop the question.

When Jessica turned back around, he was gone.

Wesley took Jessica on a date to the Aurora Winter Festival, held at the CNE. Wesley had obtained the help of two friends to take photos of the proposal, and every few minutes, he would peak at his phone to know when they’d be in position. And then he got the text. Wesley led Jessica out into the skating rink and into place. There were people skating and milling about; lots of movement and joy. Wesley distracted Jessica for a moment and, as she looked away, he lowered to a kneel. When Jessica turned back around, he was gone.

It took a moment for her to realize where he was and what was happening. For that singular moment, no skaters passed by them. It was a sliver of peace in an otherwise crowded night. And in that moment, one of their friends captured THE photo. The one they’ll show their children and grandchildren whenever they tell the story.

Jessica and Wesley, we had such an amazing time getting to know you guys better at your engagement session. We’re so honoured that you let us in enough to see just how much you love and encourage one another. You make each other laugh so fully and you are very much at home in each other’s presence. We are so in love with your photos, and we hope you are too! Let them be a sweet reminder of your love for one another!
