I love first looks. Gillian and Andrew decided to do a first look at Fort Malden in the quaint town of Amherstburg, ON. If you haven’t been to Fort Malden I do highly recommend a visit. This place was perfect for a first look. We arrived with plenty of time for me to set Andrew in a great spot for Gillian to walk up, touch his shoulder. It was a great moment that they will never forget. The rain held off for us till after we left for the reception at Sprucewood Shores Winery. With luck on our side the sun poked out 5 minutes before sun down. Couldn’t have asked for a better day.
A little story on Gillian and Andrew’s proposal…Andrew proposed on Christopher’s Cove in Newfoundland. Christopher’s Cove is a small piece of land that Andrew’s family has owned for many years. We were visiting Newfoundland for a family reunion. Andrew took Gillian down to the beach on a sunny day and proposed. We then got to share the news with the 50+ relatives who were waiting back at the cottage.
Congrats to you both, Gillian and Andrew!
