Candy and Francis booked me to be their photographer even before they got engaged — wow, what an honour! :) Not to worry though, Francis already had a few ideas up his sleeve for when and how he was going to propose!
The first time they met each other was at a softball game — since she was just a spectator, he must have been quite the handsome athlete! It was only until they saw each other at the University of Waterloo that they started talking. They were in the same program and the same Bible study fellowship too! Mix in some Marble Slab ice cream magic and they officially became a couple.
One weekend, Francis planned a getaway to Kingston, Ottawa, and Montreal. Their good friends, Joe and Benita also travelled with them. While on a walk near the beautiful waterfront in Kingston, they stopped for a “Kodak moment”. Benita created a distraction and acted as if she didn’t know how to use Candy’s camera, while Francis got down on one knee and grabbed the ring from Joe (who held it for safekeeping). When Candy turned back around, she screamed! Francis said, “I love you. Will you marry me?”
She said, “Yes!” :)
