If this blog post about our spring engagement photos in Unionville doesn’t make your mouth water, then you don’t have a sweet tooth! This macaron and Hermès inspired engagement shoot for Cathy & Peter took place this past spring and had so many personal touches. We decided to do spring Unionville engagement photos for Cathy & Peter as the trees were just beginning to bloom with cherry blossoms, and the weather was perfect for Cathy to wear her favourite Hermès scarf as a gorgeous accessory, courtesy of the groom-t0-be Peter! (By the way, autumn engagement photos in Unionville are equally gorgeous too!)

Here’s what Cathy (our lovely bride-to-be) had to say about how Peter popped the question:

 

The proposal took place with a lot of planning on Peter’s part. It was a random thursday, I (Cathy) was heading downtown to meet Peter after a little bit of shopping – we were going to a dinner I had been craving for a while (Ramen at Momofuku!). I finished my shopping and texted Peter to let him know he should come meet me… but he didn’t respond. So, I gave him a call to track him down – a little annoyed that he wasn’t there yet. Little did I know he was plotting an amazing engagement. (he had actually left work, hopped on the subway after waiting in a nearby Tim Horton’s essentially stalking me – watching to see me leave our condo (he even snapped a pic of me crossing the street) – and then he ran up, set everything up (because I had been home all day) and then quickly headed back to the downtown to meet me!) 

Peter finally made it over to me and we left the shops and went to dinner – nothing out of the ordinary happened, and we went home. When we got home I did my usual – washroom/make-up removal, and undress. I came out of our ensuite to find a big Hermès box on our bed. My stomach dropped with excitement as I had been coveting a particular scarf for some time and thought that maybe thats what Peter had surprised me with! So I got under the covers and opened the box… to find that it was empty – just a picture of that scarf (this was all to throw me off). 

Peter then left the bedroom and came back in with an even larger Hermès box – now i was REALLY confused. But I opened this box to find a beautiful macaron-lined cake from our favourite patisserie, Nadège Patisserie. On the cake was written “you’re the only one for me” – at that point I figured out what was happening and started to cry. Peter then pulled out a small Hermès box that held my engagement ring, he got on his knee and proposed. I, of course, said yes! 

I asked him later what the earlier empty box was all about, and he grinned like a child, left the room briefly and came back with the big, beautiful silk scarf I had been obsessed with. (I should note that our courtship themes were definitely all things French – wine, macarons, and Hermès scarves! so it was fitting that the proposal included all of these things)

A long description but it was oh so beautiful, very planned and well thought out – very fitting for Peter, he’s the most thoughtful person I’ve ever met.

Congratulations on your engagement Cathy & Peter! I can’t wait to photograph your wedding day later this year!
Cheers,
Lisa
P.S. This wonderful couple brought me my very own box of macarons from Nadège Patisserie! I was so touched and wow they were YUMMY! Thanks so much you two! xo
