Meet Louisa & James

As James recalls it, the first time he met Louisa it was on a hot summer afternoon, sometime in July 2013. He was sitting outside his best friend's house having a coffee when a car pulled into the driveway. Little did he know then that he was about to meet his future wife.

“Out of the car stepped the most beautiful woman I had ever seen.”

After he had stumbled through an introduction, Louisa went inside. James immediately turned to his best friend, mouth agape, and asked who the mystery woman was.

"That's my cousin." he replied. 

As fate would have it, Louisa and James wouldn't see each other again for some time. Looking back, the pair realizes that on some level they both knew they had found something different, something special -but that the timing just wasn't right for them … yet. 

Two years later, as James was on a road trip to Nashville with his best friend, he found himself asking about Louisa. By now it had been over a year since their chance encounter. James was told she was doing well, and then conversation switched gears.

Upon arriving to Nashville James noticed a new text, from whom else? Louisa.

They messaged frequently while he was in Tennessee and arranged a date for as soon as he got home to Toronto.

The rest, as they say, is history. They found each other at the right place, in the right time, and in words reminiscent of F. Scott Fitzgerald, the pair slipped briskly into an intimacy neither of them had experienced before.

“It may have taken us a few years, a few chance meetings, a few cosmic events bringing us together and conspiring in our favour, but in the end we found each other. And, now we get to walk through the rest of life together, hand in hand.”

“Ours is a love that brought out the best in each of us. A love that takes us around the world together and a love that started a company together. Our love is the kind of love that makes you feel safe, secure and ready to take on any adventure.”
