Few hours with them and I could tell how smitten he is with her. And she absolutely adores him too. They have been through so much in life, but their experiences together have brought them closer and made them stronger.

On the middle of a frozen lake in Central Park as the snow flakes were falling, Andrew got down on one knees and asked Jessica to marry him.

Jessica and Andrew: I am so honored to have documented this day for you. Thank You! I wish you the best of wishes as you start your new Journey together.
