Today’s real wedding comes to us from Nicole Amanda Photography, based in Ottawa, ON! Here is the couple’s sweet engagement story as told by the lovely bride:

We were sitting down in my garage and I was sitting on his lap. He started telling me how he went to Chapters [book store] that day and that he was looking through books on tattoos, but that he also found a book of love poems he looked through, and he found a poem that reminded him of me. He told me he bought the book, so I asked to see it.  He got up to get it and when he came back he gave me the book and told me to hold it straight. I said ok, then I sat on his lap again and he told me the page was marked with a marker. I pulled up the marker to find the page and the ring was in a cut out in the book. I was so happy and excited at the same time, it was the sweetest thing ever :)

See more after the cut!
