Duy & Andrew
Duy and Andrew both attended James Madison University and locked eyes one night at a party. They immediately formed a friendship that lasted the rest of their time at JMU. After graduation, house parties turned into happy hours and nights in DC. Over the years, their friendship blossomed into romance.
On Dec 9th, Andrew and Duy headed to downtown D.C. for a holiday party. Andrew parked and walked Duy towards the Spanish Steps, where they walked up beautifully lit up steps until they reached the top where there was a Christmas tree with two adorable bears on top.
"What do you think of the tree?" Puzzled, Duy responded "it's okay...I guess?" Just a regular ol' Christmas tree, she thought. Andrew took out a small box and asked her to open her early Christmas present. Duy unwrapped the ribbon and opened the box. Inside was an ornament that read "Our First Christmas Engaged." Duy looked over at Andrew eyes wide open, "this is our first, last fake Christmas tree, because we'll have real ones for the rest of our lives" and he got down on one knee and proposed! Their friends jumped out from behind the bushes and all celebrated with champagne!
Duy and Andrew had two engagement shoots. These festive photographs were taken by Tommy Nguyen from A Play of Light.
Their other engagement session was taken by Al Bailey with Vision by Bailey. The happy couple will say their "I Do's" on November 24th at the hidden gem, 2941 Restaurant.
