"Life is like a Ferris wheel ..sometimes you're up, sometimes you're down. In the end you just have to learn how to enjoy the ride."
California natives, Cecilia Wong and Jeff To, are definitely enjoying the ride of their 5 year relationship and one of the many ups was their recent engagement this past February 15th, 2016. The Ferris wheel analogy is very fitting as Ferris wheels themselves have played a part in their relationship from the very beginning.
It was on a Ferris wheel in Long Beach, California that Jeff first knew he was in love with Cecilia. So it seemed only fitting, that when it came time to propose, he would do so on another Ferris wheel-this one in Paris.. I'm pretty sure you can't get much more romantic than that!
When Cecilia contacted me about taking some photos, while she and Jeff were in Chicago for the weekend, she knew she wanted it to be all about city landmarks and views. After going over our many options we chose Milton Lee Olive Park. Not only are the Chicago skyline views incredible from this little pocket park but it is also right next to Navy Pier and their well known Ferris wheel. So of course we HAD to include it in some of our images!
I hope that Cecilia and Jeff's upcoming wedding on July 15, 2017 is just as sweet and romantic as they are. Thank you to both of you for including me on one leg of the trip on the Ferris wheel of your life's incredible journey.
