Vanessa and Vito met volunteering for a conference but it would take five years before they started dating. Vanessa says it was because she had a lot of growing up to do and limiting beliefs around love. They kept in touch as acquaintances and were brought back together again via Match.com
Vito proposed on the beach in Greece, close to her mom’s hometown. He timed it right then because he wanted to tell Vanessa’s grandparents the news in person, since they live there full-time and would not be able to travel to Canada for the wedding. Vanessa recalls it being the most heartfelt proposal and her grandparents beamed ear to ear (they only pressured her everyday for five years to get married).
Vito and Vanessa have now been together for two years and will officially tie the knot in just under a month’s time! They love to spend time taking on new adventures together and laughing at their silly jokes. While they wanted cherry blossoms for their-shoot, we found a better location that also symbolized growth at this beautiful sunflower farm in Toronto. Their natural silly sides came out to play! It was seriously too much fun and I just know we are in for a fun wedding day as well!
