Carl & Jayna's Engagement

Photo by Carl Derksen

Carl and Jayna got engaged on a beautiful March winter’s day at the Frost Fire Ski & Snowboard Resort. Aside from knowing that they would be getting engaged one day soon, Jayna didn’t suspect a thing.  Carl picked out the ring himself – no ring shopping together – and he formally asked her father and God-father for permission before asking her to marry him. So ladies, chivalry is not dead! Thanks to GoPro and GoPole, Carl was able to capture this special moment on video.

I must add, I am a hopeless romantic, and I think Carl scored a 10 on this one!

Of course, an engagement is a cause for celebration! Carl & Jayna decided on an intimate party with their immediate families;  an opportunity for both families to meet, and get to know each other.  A charming tablescape was created, combining elegant centrepieces, candles and a beautiful cake with adornments of greens and ‘love’; one can’t forget about the overabundance of delectables that filled the table.

Carl, Jayna and their families enjoyed a wonderful evening filled with delicious food, stories and laughter. Visit Carl & Jayna’s Engagement portfolio to see more beautiful photos captured by Esther Funk Photography.

Thank you Carl & Jayna for allowing Sharon Webb Events to be part of your special day!
