Details from Toronto-based Sharp Fluff Photography:
Rebecca and Zach’s first date was at Williams Coffee Pub – there over cups of coffee the two hit it off right away and 15 months later they were engaged! Coffee dates remain a favourite thing for the Hamilton, Ontario couple, and both of them have a love for the great outdoors. For their engagement session, Cara Mia Events created a vintage styled coffee-date picnic for the couple and put a fresh spin on the couple’s favourite coffee dates! Rebecca loves all things vintage and was amazed by the beautiful setting we had planned out. So on this sunny, beautiful August day, Rebecca and Zach chatted over cupcakes from Flour Girl and fresh whipped cappuccino. What a great way to celebrate their engagement!

Special thanks to Monica Le for creating Monica’s soft romantic hairstyle that she so loved, and MyEpiphany Co for the beautiful accessories.

Rebecca and Zach are getting married in May 2014 in Costa Rica.
