~Simply Engaged: Jenny and Ali~

Hello all of my lovelies!!!

This here is my very first entry in my new series: 

Simply Engaged

I am truly super stoked to show you all my lovely clients.  They are the best!

So here's a little more about the gorgeous 
{Jenny & Ali}
. . . 

 All of this lovely photography is by the talented Shari and Mike Photography 

From: Vancouver, B.C.

Wedding Day: June 16th 2012

Location: Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, WA

{How did you two love birds meet?}
"Ali & I met at work.  We both work for a dental supply company. At the time, I was working in Calgary and Ali was working in Vancouver. I came to Vancouver for a few days to visit the Vancouver office. One of our colleagues arranged for us to go for dinner. At first, I really did not want to go (I didn't know who he was, and I wanted to spend the night with some friends). But, I went and it was the best night!! 
From that night, we took quite a liking to each other :) "

{How did he pop the big question?}
"The big question was popped on May 22, 2011 in Seattle, WA. We got all dressed up and went out for dinner/entertainment to Teatro Zinzanni. Ali arranged for us to be brought up on stage to be part of the show. I was pretty pumped about getting up on stage, but wasn't expecting at all what was about to go down! Half way through the act, Ali was down on one knee confessing his love (well, not really, he just asked if I would marry him). To this day, he still says that I never said yes. But nonetheless, we're getting married!"

{What is your fave date spot/activity?}
"Our fave date activity by far is cooking at home with wine. Ali is an awesome cook, and I've become a pretty fine Su Chef. In terms of our fave date spot, we will always love Chambard, as that was the restaurant we went to on our first date. Well, at that time it wasn't actually a date, but it was where we went for dinner that evening in Vancouver after we first met. I've attached a pic of us kissing in front of the spot- we took our photographers there for our engagement pics"

{What is your fave part about the wedding planning process?}
"I love waking up every morning and stalking Style Me Pretty! I also love connecting with people who have recently been married, and talking about their day and planning that went into it. I love seeing how each wedding is unique and special to each couple. It's a day of love, and I looooove everything about the whole process!"

{Advice to planning a wedding to other couples?}
"Be in the moment! If there are times when things start to get a little stressful or feel overwhelming, take a step back and be in the moment. Just think, its your wedding and it is something that you will only do once in your life. Whether is dress shopping, working on seat assignments, or picking candy for the candy bar- enjoy doing it and soak up every second of this special time!"

{His/Her faves}
Ali's faves: cooking, riding his motorcycle, vintage Porsche speedster, fresh cut flowers, whiskey, antique Persian rugs

    Jenny's faves: shopping, yoga, cooking with my fiance, hot bath, David's Tea, going out for breakfast, biking the seawall with Ali on our cruisers (Marshall and B), wallpaper

{On my wedding day I am most excited about}
Ali: "the party! More specifically, having all of our favourite people together and having a blast."

Jenny: "me too, the party for sure. I want everybody to feel super relaxed and to have a fab/fun day!"

{Fave meal your fiance makes for you?}
Ali: maple glaze pork tenderloin

Jenny: pizza buns, mmm mmm mmm :)

 {If we could go anywhere for our honeymoon}
 "We would go to Spain and drink wine, eat the most delicious food and live like a local." 

They are pretty darn adorable right?!
