Felicia found me on Wedding Wire. Unbeknownst to her, she and another bride were battling for the same date. Felicia & Ernso happened to meet with me and Roody and book us first, and I'm happy they did!
We arranged to do their engagement session this past weekend at Beardsley Park in Bridgeport, CT. I was nervous because, well, it's February! But the sun was shining brightly and it felt like a lovely Spring afternoon. I asked Felicia for her and Ernso's love story. Here are her words:
"Our story began 8 years ago at a place called Continuum Health Partners. We were both working there in the same department. Ernso was the new guy not really speaking much. So, my friend and I used to bug him to get him to talk and hang with everyone. Eventually he opened up and started hanging with a group of us."

I was looking to find a new relationship but was not thinking it would be with him. Somehow we grew on each other and began dating."
Felicia & Ernso's Engagement SessionBeardsley Park, Bridgeport, CT "The dating went on for about 2 years and within this time I was introduced to his kids. They were cute little kiddies. He also met a number of my family members within this time as well as I with his."
Felicia & Ernso's Engagement SessionBeardsley Park, Bridgeport, CT "Fast forward to the present time. Ernso and I decided to make things official by actually saying we were a couple instead of saying we are friends. As time rolled on we decided to make a move to Connecticut and build a life there together in July of 2012. 2 years and 7 months later on Feb 14, 2015 Ernso totally surprised me with his proposal. I was absolutely clueless to what he was doing although there were all these clues around me."
