Minoru Chapel Engagement Photos | Allie + Doug

Allie and Doug first met at the coffee shop that Doug worked at for a few years in downtown Vancouver. There was life music playing every Friday night, and Allie had come in to see an artist she was a fan of. Doug remembers her order: a Raspberry White Chocolate cheesecake and a hot chocolate (yum!). They talked a bit while she ordered, but it was nothing beyond the usual chatter between a customer and a barista. Doug felt something special, and knew he had to do something, so into the back of the cafe he went, writing down his phone number on a note before passing it off to Allie.
