Karen and Franco had a faith and family-centered wedding at Buffet Il Gabbiano (ceremony and St Lawrence Anglican Church) and it was amahzing! I find everything about these two ridiculously sweet, especially their love story. I especially love that they’ve already been together for 19 years!
I asked Karen to tell me a bit about their love story and here is what she said:
On how they met… My friend worked at a bar/cafe, I used to go hang out with her and Frank went there also. We started playing this game machine and I would win a lot! To find out he was letting me win! He actually knew me long before that. In high school he hung out with my cousin. I am six years younger than him so i don’t remember seeing him then.
On the “spark” that set off their love story… Our first official date he called to ask me to go out to eat with him, but I had already eaten. He said it didn’t matter, for me to come anyways. So I did. After he dropped me home and we said goodbye, I shook his hand! lol I didn’t know what to do. I think he wanted a kiss goodbye! Well the next time we went out I kissed him goodbye and he had me at that moment.
Cute right!?! Yes I know. Oh, and while I’m here, I’d like to take a minute to thank Karen and Franco for choosing me to document such a beautiful day. You two encompass everything I love about my work and everything I want in my clients!
I also want to thank Karen and Franco’s friends and family. Thank you for welcoming me into your home and being so welcoming to me throughout the entire day. I had the best time getting to know you all.
Lots of love! Cass:)
