Roseanne and Ben’s Lake Minnewanka engagement session was dramatic and sweet all at the same time. I first met Roseanne when she was manager at a local bridal boutique, Cameo and Cufflinks. Fast forward a few months and were were headed out to the Rockies to capture their “spring” engagement photos. The wind was icy but imagine my delight when Roseanne stepped out of the car in a flowing red dress and tartan scarf (she’s a Scot). They were the perfect compliment to the jagged peaks surrounding Lake Minnewanka.
Their Proposal Story
Ben’s parents have a beautiful home in Palm Springs, California, where they escape the harsh Canadian winters, and last November we spent ten days visiting them. Since Willow was a bit older, we took a short trip and left her with her grandparents.
We snuck off to LA to spend a baby-free weekend together; going out for dinner, walking about Santa Monica and Venice Beach, and it turns out, getting engaged!
Ben popped the question early in the morning, on the beach, as we walked holding hands, watching the waves crash against the sand. He told me how much he loved me, and even got down on his knees! It was lovely. I was so surprised, totally cried, and was completely beside myself with happiness!
I couldn’t stop smiling all day. Eight months on, and I still get giddy every time I look at my beautiful engagement ring.
Big congratulations to Roseanne, Ben (and Willow) on their upcoming wedding. A little birdie tells me that it’s being held someplace warm and wonderful 😉
