Real Weddings {Toronto}: Ann-Janelle & Kevin! – Blackbride.com

Ann-Janelle and Kevin's love story is not your typical workplace romance. Their initial meeting was definitely more business than pleasure, as Ann-Janelle was Kevin's boss when they first met. " I was actually his supervisor at the time, I remember he was always trying to pursue me but I wasn’t having it," said Ann-Janelle. "I wouldn’t give him the time or day, until one day something in me decided to give him a chance. We went out for lunch and we hit it off right away, the chemistry we had was undeniable." Ann-Janelle and Kevin became inseparable and embarked on a journey to true love! The two celebrated their union with a Summer wedding, beautifully captured by Samantha Clarke Photography!

Engagement story:

We made plans to go out for dinner to celebrate Kevin’s new promotion at work, little did I know Kevin had other plans in store. He made reservations at the same restaurant we went to on our first date and even requested we sat in the same seats. While at dinner we reminisced about the past and even talked about the future, he started getting extremely sentimental and started expressing all the things he loved about me and before I knew it he was down on one knee asking me to marry him, I instantly started crying and said yes.

From the Bride:

At some point at your reception on your wedding day take the time to just look at all your guest and appreciate all the people and all the love in the room and realize that they are there to celebrate your love and your union.

Advice for a Bride/Groom on their wedding day:

Our best advice for the Bride and Groom on their wedding day is to put God first on your special day and he will work out whatever kinks or hiccups that may occur during the day. Most of all don’t stress, enjoy every single moment of the day.
