Ontario Bohemian Forest Elopement | Les + Faith

Faith and Les have to be some of the sweetest, most kind humans I've have ever met. They met several years ago through friends at their church that they were attending. At the time, Faith was preparing to go to school in Virginia, USA and Les had already started his bachelor degree in Cambridge, Ontario.

Many years later they reconnected while Faith was working in Vancouver for the summer and Les was planning to head to Australia where he would pursue his musical career. Due to the distance, they would FaceTime and talk to each other every day. Before Les left for Australia, he drove during the night (12 hours to be exact) to see Faith at school in Virginia. For several months they would communicate by sending letters, emails, and send each other gift packages. Every day Faith would stay up until midnight to be able to call him across the world to be able to hear his voice.

After Les came back from Australia they continued their long distance relationship for 7 months until Faith finished her undergrad at school. One night in March, Les drove through the night to surprise her at the spot they had their first date. A friend of Faith’s, took her there to be surprised by Les with roses and of course, a ring, to which it’s no surprise that Faith said yes to marrying the love of her life! On top of it all, Les had Faith’s family fly in from all over to celebrate with them afterwards.

Talk about a fairytale (gives me goosebumps every time).

I couldn’t have thought of a better way for this day to be more perfect. It felt like there wasn't a care in the world, just pure joy and love and celebration for these two and being able to capture this special day for them just made it even better.
