This fantastic couple Leslie and Jay-R have an incredible engagement story to tell and their story goes something like this…
Like any other Saturday in June (2007), Jay-R arrived home tired from working all day; to help him unwind, Leslie offered to play the piano for him (you will see that these two are quite musically inclined). As Lesile played, he began to serenade her from the couch. When Leslie played “My boo” by Usher, he sang the words “Do you remember girl, who was the one who gave you your first kiss…” he walked to the piano and kissed her on the cheek. Leslie could barely concentrate and stopped playing as he hugged her from behind and whispered “Do you love me?” She responded, “Of course I do, I love you with all my heart an all my soul.” He replies, “That’s exactly…what I wanted to hear”, as she turned slowly to give him a kiss, Leslie sees him on bended knee. Her heart was racing!!! Jay-R gazes right into her eyes, pulls out the ring and says, “Well then if you love me…will you be MY WIFE?” In complete and utter shock, she declares “Of course I will, yes!” and he lovingly places the ring her finger.
But tonight’s adventure is just getting started, now finding herself blindfolded in his car and feeling some motion sickness from the ten minute car ride while blindfolded and certain that she is the subject of several curious stares as they navigate the streets of Toronto, the newly engaged couple finally arrive at their destination. Struggling to get to the entrance Leslie finally is allowed to remove her blindfold, and is welcomed by the couples’ entire families gathered at the door.
Jay-R had planned all of this for months and it was a huge success! Well Jay-R talk about raising the bar for the rest of the guys!
Enough said about that what a great story, here are a few pictures from our fabulous engagement shoot in Toronto! I hope you enjoy them!!
