A few weeks ago, Merly (the owner of Once Upon a Date) contacted me because she was planning something VERY special for her client and brother-in-law. The Couple: Akash and Jasmine. The Location: The Pond Inlet at Brock University. The Occasion? A surprise proposal, of course!
Brock University is where Akash and Jasmine first met and Akash wanted it to be a reminiscent proposal for Jasmine--at a familiar place with memories flooding in. The location was perfect, and some family and friends were already at the inlet putting their finishing touches on the set-up . Luckily it was a Saturday and school was out, so all we had to do was wait for the couple to arrive. I knew that I could hide behind a tree trunk and get some shots of Jasmine and Akash walking through the pathway, which is exactly what I did. As soon as Jasmine walked through the path, she saw me and then turned to the big letters that spelled out "MARRY ME". It's safe to say that Jasmine was in complete shock! A couple glasses of Moët later, and the rest is history.
Thank you again to Once Upon a Date for taking me on as a partner. It was definitely a proposal to remember!
Some highlights from the surprise proposal are below.
