I first met Paulina and Cristhian at my windy wedding last November, where he was teaching the bar tender to make caipirinhas. (Incidentally, this detail has stuck with me because caipirinhas are one of my dad's favorite drinks.)
We reconnected this past summer at Elizabeth Park in West Hartford for their engagement photos.
They're an amazing couple. He's from Ecuador, and she's from Poland.
As part of their portraits, they wanted to recreate the proposal...
...which got cheers of applause from the crowds around us! It was a lot of fun.
Congratulations, Paulina and Cristhian!
