Nearlyweds: Michelle Nicol & Michael Wise
Together for: 6 Loving Years!
The proposal: “Six years ago, Mike and I met on Canada Day at Mel Lastman Square! We knew it was love at first sight and there were definitely fireworks!
Since then we have loved being fur-parents to our sweet dogs Willow + Tilly and moving in together!
Fast forward to 2020. During quarantine, being like most other people, we gave up on normal clothes and spent most of our time in loungewear! On Easter Sunday, we got all dressed up (I actually put makeup on!) and enjoyed a zoom call with our entire family!
I thought it would be nice to get the dogs and have my sister take some photos of us on the porch. We had a great time and the photos turned out wonderful, considering my sister is NOT a photographer and was using Mike’s camera for the first time!
All of a sudden, Mike said ‘let’s take some photos on the grass!’. He led me down to the grass on our front lawn and we took some photos there. He faced me, took my hands, and wanted to pose like that. I quickly put an end to that, stating they looked too much like engagement photos. Next thing I know, he is getting down on one knee with the most beautiful ring facing me! It was such a heartfelt and genuine moment that I will never forget!! Luckily, my sister (AKA surprise engagement photographer) was snapping photos the entire time and we will forever be able to cherish that moment!!
We could not wait to let our families know! We spent the next few hours face-timing everyone! We cannot wait to celebrate with our family and friends once we are able to and look forward to our May 15, 2021 wedding!” – M&M
