{ENGAGEMENT} LOVE IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK…

ok so today’s post is uber special to me.

i’ve known Cynthia since she was in the 5th grade.  when i first moved to America and we were in search of piano teachers, one of the piano teachers introduced us to the Li family and we became close family friends.  i spent many a day with Cynthia playing beanie babies and when she moved into the middle school that was in the same building as my high school, we left silly origami notes for each other in our lockers.  we were also in marching band together….yes, marching band.  nevertheless, it’s been an amazing journey to see her grow up.  and i am so very excited to share the below with you.  but more importantly, i’m super excited for Cynthia and Eli and their next chapter.  congrats you two.

also they have a pretty cute dog and cat.

ok without further ado.

and thank you for throwing confetti.  and thank you, Eli for looking so happy about throwing confetti.

all this would not be possible without the major talent of

CHAZ CRUZ

Chaz, thank you thank you thank you a gajillion bajillion times for capturing these two so wonderfully.  it makes me so happy.  seriously.  when friends end up going with photog friends for their big day, i literally squeal and if i wasn’t at work when the decision was made, i’d legit throw confetti in the air.

anyways, thank you Chaz.  head on over to CHAZ’S BLOG and mosey around there because you need to and you won’t regret it.

and again, Cynthia and Eli, so happy for you two and congrats again.
