During the week or so before Mike proposed to Madeline, they went out to eat just about every day! That’s because Mike was trying to find the perfect moment to propose to Madeline, and he finally popped the question at The Cheesecake Factory, where they had their first date. In Mike’s words, it was “not too fancy nor casual” for a date spot, and I couldn’t agree more. What’s not to love about a place that has awesome drinks, food, and cheesecake in every flavor you can think of =).
For their engagement session, we went to the Branch Brook Park in Newark, NJ. This park is famous for its beautiful cherry blossom festival around April. Yup, it’s not just DC or Brooklyn, dirtay Jersey has cheery blossoms too :p! I hope you enjoy the photos as much as we had in capturing them!
