Amy and Dennis met in law school. Long before they began dating, Amy recalled a time where she kept thinking how great of a husband Dennis would be. Dennis is charming, intelligent, and most importantly, makes Amy the happiest woman in the world. There is one thing I will never forget about Amy. I will never forget the moment I met her and what her eyes looked like when she spoke of Dennis. They sparkled. The kind of sparkle you see when you are just on the verge of shedding a tear. A happy tear. It is simply beautiful. She is beautiful, kind and most importantly, makes Dennis the happiest man in the world. One day in December, they were decorating their Christmas tree and a surprise box appeared. That surprise box contained a different kind of sparkle to further solidify their happiness, as a couple.
All my brides (and some of the grooms) know that I am just a tad bit addicted to Pinterest. I follow all my brides to get the latest and greatest updates on their dreams, ideas and "must have" details for their wedding day. I pinned a picture of a cherry blossom to Amy's board with the caption, "Cherry blossoms for your engagement? The only place more beautiful than DC for cherry blossoms is in Newark!" Well it turned out that Amy was JUST about to email me about doing their engagement in Branch Brook Park in Newark, New Jersey. It is not only a place of beautiful cherry blossom trees, but a place where Amy spent her Easter Sundays with family. We planned an early morning engagement in Branch Brook Park to avoid the crowds that were to attend the annual festival that was planned for that day. The morning was a perfect blend of beautiful light, cherry blossoms and a gorgeous couple.
Next March, I know that Amy and Dennis will both have sparkles in their eyes. Sparkles to showcase their happiness on their wedding day, which I am truly blessed to be a part of.
