When they got out of the car in the parking lot, I nearly died. A classic red dress engagement session at the Arboretum…it doesn’t get more perfect than that.
Alyson was dressed to the nines in the most beautiful red dress with a big bow on the back. Steve, in a suit, was wearing a red tie to match. Love, love, love it. The contrast with all the beautiful trees was dreamy. So dreamy.
Their love story began when Alyson told Steve he looked like Sydney Crosby. I’m so glad that Alyson mentioned that at our initial meeting because it was driving me crazy trying to figure out who he looked like!
Steve had an elaborate proposal planned in the fall of 2016. He wanted to bring Alyson to Gatineau park, among the fall leaves, but on the day he had planned, Alyson had the flu. Instead, he took her to the Arboretum (after she’d recovered of course), and proposed to her along a cute path in the forest. Perfection.
Alyson and Steve are getting married at Le Belvedere in August and I just cannot wait! It might not be Gatineau Park, but it’s close enough! And that view is hard to beat!
Congrats to this gorgeous pair!
