On November 5, 2011 they both were at a collage party. He spotted her from across the room and knew he had to talk to her but couldn’t get up the nerve right away. However, with some encouragement from friends Jerryl worked up the courage to introduce himself to Melissa, the girl with a smile he noticed immediately, the girl he had to meet. A casual pizza date, with hours of conversation later they connected and their relationship began.
Just over five years later on December 22, 2016, it was a wintery day in NYC, all the storefronts were decorated for the holidays and the city was lit with millions of lights. They walked hand in hand through Central Park talking about their upcoming years aspirations, goals, and talked about doing a bucket list. Sitting on a bench in Central Park Jerryl then told Melissa that wherever they may travel or anything they will do in life that he wants to always do it together. He got up off that bench and down on one knee and asked her to marry him!! ❤ ❤
Isn’t that just a sweet sweet love story? I am so excited to have a small part in telling it for these two genuine, loving souls. The morning of their engagement session was filled with laughter, joy, and love. I thought it was fitting to start it off with a walk through the park to reminisce that day in Central Park ❤
