Cornerstone Garden Engagement
Dani and Matthew

Prepare yourself for some serious sweetness!

I am writing this with tissue in hand, as this post is very special to me.  This gorgeous lady, Dani, is my best friend. We’ve known each other since the first day of tenth grade and though we haven’t lived in the same city since, we’ve always maintained a close friendship.  Supporting each other through headaches and heartaches, tears of joy and tears of sadness. Bearing witness to each others live’s that has now unfolded from adolescence to adulthood.  It feels like an understatement to say that I love her.  So when Matthew came into the picture I was very curious to meet him. They met through mutual friends, while he was visiting the North Bay from LA.  The first time we met was during a night out during the holidays and I am not sure we exchanged more then few words.  So I was little weary of the idea of Dani moving to LA for the summer be closer to him- sorry Matt.

Needless to say, their relationship blossomed to were they are today and I can say without any doubt that they are made for one another.  I see their love and it’s fortified with respect, support, understanding, and patience.  These virtues are the foundation of true love.  Matt and Dani now step forward, together, into a life as husband and wife and will someday raise their children with these same principles.  I am going to stop gushing now and let you check out these engagement pics I snapped while they we here for the holidays.


This cute fellow wanted to join our picnic, he must be Cornerstone’s guard dog.


Dani & Matt: I want you to know that I am overjoyed for you two.  This is such a unique and heartfelt chapter in the story of your lives together and I hope that you’ll soak up every minute.

Love you guys! xx
