I’ve always preached that the secret of happiness lies in your ability to be thankful for all the blessings you have in life. It’s not complacency, far from it; it’s a genuine appreciation for all the people/things/experiences that make you who you are, and transforms you into a better person everyday. I personally know that Cindy and Greg are such a couple who perfectly exemplify such gratitude, in every sense of the word. These two are simply two of the most thankful, happy, appreciative clients we’ve ever had the pleasure of having on the other side of our cameras. From bearing gifts to their initial meeting with yours truly, or enduring their engagement session in the freezing cold, to the few minutes I had alone with Cindy (while Greg was picking up dinner for MY wife!) when she told me she was the luckiest girl in the world to have found Greg. These two have indeed discovered this little secret to happiness, and I’m beyond thrilled that they’ve discovered this in one another. Cindy and Greg tied the knot at one of my fave NJ wedding venues (partially because it’s also where Karis and I tied the knot almost 8 years ago) – The Palace at Somerset Park. To say it was chilly in Central NJ on their wedding day would’ve been the understatement of the century. To say the Cindy started her day quietly in her hotel room would’ve also been the understatement of the century – I personally know this, because (ahem) “someone” accidentally set off the fire alarm to the hotel during the wee hours of the morning. But I digress :). All the more reason why we love the nice folks at The Heldrich in New Brunswick!
