I went to high school with Duncan and when he contacted me to shoot his and Alex’s engagement photos, I was super ecstatic!!
When we picked a date, we were hoping for sun…. little did we know it would pour! So after chatting we went for it anyways…. we had an exciting day of umbrellas, going under cover, and stepping out in the rain. Since Tim Hortons was such a big part of them coming together, we had to stop by for a shot or two! I wanted to hear the whole story so I asked Duncan to email me exactly how it happened…..
Duncan: I was at work, renovating a Tim Hortons in Richmond. Mollie (Alex’s little sister), worked at the Tim Hortons. Mollie had been bugging Alex about “This tall guy I think you’d like” working on our store. So…Alex came to check me out lol.
Word had spread to one of my co-workers that Alex had the hots for me, and she was actually outside waiting to pick Mollie up from work. This was the last day of construction so it was now or never if I was going to get the courage to approach her.
Thanks to Facebook, Mollie discovered that I had a connection to them, and told me about it. So that was my icebreaker!
I approached Alex outside asking her how she knew my best friends girlfriend only to discover that they are related, AND are both named Alex…..small world… It doesnt stop there though, by fluke chance, I worked with Alex’s OTHER cousin at a Panago when I was 15 years old…oh…and his name was ALEX!
How could this NOT be fate? I think it was then when I realized I had met my soulmate.
Tim Hortons…. where it all started~
WOW! This ring is gorgeous! Nice job Duncan!!
Kissing shots are so fun!
Duncan and Alex will be married in Vegas this November, I am sooooo excited for them.
