We want to share the beauty of waking up before the crack of dawn and getting one of a kind engagement photos taken. We had so much fun with high school sweethearts, Gricelda and Christopher. They met back in high school (Go Lane!) when they were introduced by one of Gricelda's family members. They talked for a few weeks via char (AOL IM back then!) and their friendship rapidly grew into something more serious. They both enjoyed talking with each other so much they couldn't wait to see each other. When they met in person, they automatically knew each other was the right person for one another. Both Gricelda and Chris went to Loyola University Chicago. Gricelda has always wanted to become a physician since kindergarten and majored in Biology. Chris decided to take a biology class with her and enjoyed it so much, he decided to change his major to Biology. Although Chris was ahead one year in school, he was also attending school and working full-time so he and Gricelda graduated from Loyola at the same time.
They actually got engaged in Lincoln Park zoo, the same place we went for their engagement photos. It was a beautiful evening at the Lincoln Park zoo in Chicago. Chris was able to set up a camera and said he was trying to take some photos of them. That is when he started playing a song from their first dance and began recording the proposal. He got down on one knee in front of the pond with the Chicago skyline view (which was also where they went for their first date) and asked Gricelda to marry him. Filled with tears of joy, she said yes! It was a wonderful evening and something they will always remember.
