Vanessa & Arnie : Engaged

They met on a perfect blind date. I know what you’re thinking…that almost never happens, right? Technically, you’re right, because it wasn’t their blind date. Vanessa and Arnie were both dragged along by their best friends as they went on a blind date. Come onnnnn, Vanessa’s friend told her, I’d do it for you…just come so it’s not awkward. She had nothing to lose and hey, she’d probably get free dinner and a movie out of it. So, Vanessa obliged and expected nothing. Until she saw Arnie get out of the car. His fair skin, green eyes and charming smile made her weak in the knees. And by the end of their non-date, Vanessa and Arnie were smitten.

They still are madly in love with one another. Like, for real, I had to clear my throat a few times to remind them they weren’t alone. That’s just how it should be. Vanessa and Arnie are planning a glamorous affair in September and I can’t wait to see all of their dreams come to life. Thanks you two for such a fabulous afternoon.
