How did you two meet? Tell us your story.
Once upon a time there was a girl with a crazy cat who was looking for love. There was a boy, with a less crazy cat who too was looking for love. Angie found Evan on Match.com, saw his profile photo of him wearing a moose hat and sent him a message. And she waited and waited. And waited. And finally he replied! Angie and Evan got on so well through email as she was most impressed with his excellent use of grammar and correct spelling. They decided to meet up for a first date. Angie arrived at the pub, and she waited, and waited… and she was so disappointed that this handsome boy in a moose hat had stood her up. But he finally arrived, and thus began the best and last first date of their lives.
Describe the proposal.
On Evan’s 35th birthday, Angie had a suspicion that Evan would propose after he made a date to go to the same spot that the couple had shared one of their first dates. After he came down sick that day, they cancelled their plans and opted to go home; Angie thought it would happen another time. In the den, the pair was settling in to watch a movie, and Angie turned to find Evan on one knee, asking her to marry him.
What was your favorite memory from your proposal?
As the two were at home, about to settle in to watch a movie, and were both in the clothing they would typically wear at home: sweats. Angie had taken off her makeup, and had her hair up. Evan’s proposal was at home, where the couple both love enjoying each other’s company, and where they are most “at home” with one another. Now the couple can enjoy the sweet memory of their proposal whenever they make popcorn and settle in to cuddle up and watch a movie together.
What do you love most about each other?
Angie loves that Evan is always laughing. He will frequently laugh at his own jokes, and even wakes up with a smile on his face. Evan loves how Angie’s eyes light up when she smiles.
Is there any significance to your engagement photo shoot location?
The engagement shoot took place in Liberty Village, in Downtown Toronto. Liberty Village is where Angie lived, where Evan worked and where the couple had their first date (they met in between his work and her home). The two probably crossed paths in Liberty Village a hundred times before going on their first date!
