Katie + Shawn

Huracan Cafe // Punta Cana

Katie & Shawn… two gentle people who are very much in love – full of life, character & joy. They mesh together like peas and carrots. It’s so unavoidably evident how much affection these two carry for each other. You’ll see just what I mean… xoxo r+m


We met at our mutual friends wedding.  I was standing on the bride’s side and he on the grooms.  The first time we saw each other was the day of the rehearsal – at a local beach in Sarnia.  We were both living in London at the time – he was a Western student and I was raised there. I remember leaving the rehearsal and I could not stop thinking about him.  I worked up the nerve to start a conversation with him the night of the wedding by asking him where he lived in London.  As it turned out he lived four houses down from me on the same street!  We really hit it off that night – we stayed up all night talking and walked down to the nearby bridge to watch the sun come up.

Mackenzie + Zach

Jellyfish Restaurant Punta Cana

M+Z… I don’t even know where to begin. Maybe just LOVE. You two are beyond sweet & I can honestly say, we felt like a part of your family by the end of the night. We had the most incredible time & love you to bits. …. no-one tells your story quite like you do, so let’s soak it all in. XOXO r+m


We met back in second year at Western University at the sport medicine clinic. We both had knee surgeries after sports injuries, and wound up in physiotherapy at the same time. We kept seeing each other, and with the not-so-gentle nudge of our therapists, and a few drinks of liquid courage at a local bar one evening, we both had the courage to talk to each other about more than the positives of ice-baths and lunges. We went on our first date but it was quickly followed by the Christmas break from school where we were both heading back to our home towns an hour apart. Zach invited me out for a visit over the break (to meet your family already?!) and there I was driving in circles in a snow storm with zero visibility to Niagara to meet this boy. We had separate New Years Eve plans with our friends as we had just met, but Zach showed up at my house New Years day telling me he did not want to spend another New Years without me and the rest is history!
