Felanna and Aaron’s Engagement, Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto.
“I will come by and pick you up tomorrow for ROM…OK?”. Those were the words, delivered in a low voice, almost a whisper, Aaron used to ask Felanna for a date in front of all their friends for the very first time, thus starting a tradition more than three years in the running.
This is what Felanna shared with us: “Aaron and I officially started dating at the ROM about 3 to 4 years ago. Every time we attend a ROM event, it is always special. Spending time together at the ROM has always been different and magical. On one special night in 2011, Aaron won a trip to Antarctica from the ROM. We went in 2013, and I still remember the trip down South. It was definitely an unforgettable moment.
Aaron proposed to me while we were vacationing in Mexico in 2014. We had a wonderful dinner on the beach by the ocean shore. At the end, he went down on one knee and proposed to me. I was totally shocked and could not even say a word, as this was totally unexpected for me. But finally, with a big smile on my face, I said, ”YES!”
The ROM has a special place in our hearts and forever will be”.
It was a great opportunity for us to shoot inside the museum. We are standing members and we ourselves went to the ROM numerous times but never had a chance to actually shoot there.
Here are a few of our favourite shots. Enjoy!
Here we were photobombed… we shot so unobtrusively they did not see us at all and walked for in for a T-Rex selfie :-)
