Big Hill Springs engagement session

December 22, 2017

Today I’m posting this Big Hill Springs engagement session, just in time for Christmas.  I first met Justine (the bride) at another wedding.  She was a bridesmaid at some beautiful Silvertip I Do’s and I noticed two things about her.  First of all, she has the most engaging smile.  Take a look through this post and you’ll see what I mean.  Secondly, she and Geoff had some serious moves on the dance floor later on that day.

You can imagine how thrilled I was to get the email saying that she was getting married herself.  The fact that we made the booking while I was sitting in Fenway Park watching the Blue Jays, can only be a good omen.  But that’s a story for another day…

A romantic proposal

Justine and Geoff have a great engagement story and they were kind enough to share it with us today.

In June 2017, Geoff proposed while on one of our annual two-week trips; this particular one in Greece.  Explaining that he had planned a date night out, the two of us took off on our fancy ATV.  As Geoff began to lead us up a rocky and abandoned hill, it dawned on me that either he was a serial killer or he knew of some very obscure hilltop restaurants.  At the top of the hill, there lay champagne, pillows, and a table adorned with candles.  The rest is a bit of a blur for us.  What we do know is that under that Santorini sunset on the top of a cliff overlooking the water – we cried, laughed, and decided to spend the rest of our lives loving each other.

Big Hill Springs Provincial Park  was the perfect setting for Justine and Geoff’s fall engagement shoot.  I can’t wait for their wedding at Alloy next summer.
