Nicole and Brian first met at a parenting group for parents to make friends. When they first met Nicole was actually dating someone and Brian was just getting out of a relationship, but they became friends as part of their group. Over time Nicole developed feelings for Brian, they were on a camping trip with their group at the pinery when she first knew that she was in love with him, but she didn't think he was interested or looking for a relationship so she set her feelings aside. Then one day, she posted (what I assume to be) an awesome photo of herself on Facebook and Brian commented about how nice she looked in it. They started chatting and one thing let to another and they were setting up play dates for their kids, after a few play dates, Brian finally asked her on a date. Nicole says she remembers the moment clearly, it was May 12, 2011 and she was standing in her parents kitchen when she got the text message. She jumped for joy and had a perma smile for days. (How adorable is that?). Their first date was to the Pinery Provincial Park, and that's when Brian knew he loved Nicole as well. They both fell in love at the same place, just different times. Brian surprised Nicole one day while she was coming home from college with a trail of rose petals, leading to him on one knee, asking her to spend the rest of her life with him. She said yes!
Over the years they have built a family together, and a life together and this is the year that the stars have aligned that they are actually going to tie the knot! They can't wait to make it official, with a long engagement and life sometimes getting in the way, all these two want is to be married, they already know they are going to spend the rest of their lives together.
Here's a snippet from their amazing engagement session at the Pinery Provincial Park (of course).
