She said it was like any other day. Only this day was most definitely not. A familiar truck drove up to her tiny coffee stand as she approached the end of her morning barista shift. It was him. The man she served coffee to for the first time nearly three years before. Eric. She smiled as he drove up, window down. He wasn’t interested in coffee this morning, but instead asked to come inside the stand. A bit confused she welcomed him in as she cleaned up. He parked his truck and walked in to the tiny space she had served him coffee all of those years, got down on one knee, looked into her eyes and said, “This was the first place I saw you and instantly fell in love with you and knew you were the one I wanted to marry someday…” As he popped the question, through tears and excitement she said, “YES!!!”
Nicole and Eric could not be any sweeter. If you want to meet a couple with a genuine heart for each other, look no further. They have it. And it’s solid gold. I couldn’t be happier for Nicole. Eric makes her smile light up a room. She loves him with a full heart. The way he looks at her can stir anyone’s soul.
Eric and Nicole, I am sure that you two will build a life that is full of love and laughter. I hope that you know that I am feeling so honored and blessed to be your wedding photographer! July can’t come fast enough! Until then, please soak up every last drop of being engaged. Go on dates. Eat bad food. Stay up until sunrise. Go on an adventure. Get lost. Dance. Soak in the love. Congratulations you two—I couldn’t be happier for the both of you!
