Michael, a commercial film director, and Alana, a wardrobe stylist, were first brought together by a serendipitous nine-hour layover at the Toronto airport—an ordeal most would consider unromantic at best. The pair was set to begin work on a Sport Chek commercial in Florida the next day, but their flight was delayed, leaving them stranded at gate F64. When their flight finally took off, Michael ditched his first-class ticket to join Alana in the economy section, where they shared their first kiss.
“Since then we haven’t spent a day apart. We even got tiny matching tattoos that say ‘F64’ on our wrists as a nod to the place where it all began!” Alana reveals.
Fast-forward to their wedding day
