An engagement ceremony is an interesting thing. Unless you're used to having attention lavished upon you, or countless eyes watching you throughout the day, it can all be a bit surreal. Granted some of us don't shy away from sharing the details of our relationships with friends {and in some cases, absolute strangers}, there are some of us who like to keep our cards close to the chest. Alyia + Faisal's engagement at the Bellvue Manor is one that has defied time and distance. Travelling between Montreal and Toronto, their relationship is a true testament to handwork, dedication and love. From the stories of their childhoods, to fun facts about their relationship, it truly was an intimate and beautiful ceremony.
