Having winged across the Atlantic from Germany for a whirlwind trip of New York for Alke’s 30th birthday, Dennis picked the perfect spot to propose against the iconic backdrop of Manhattan’s Flatiron Building. Few other historic buildings are as quintessentially symbolic of New York’s grand past than this early skyscraper, which was once one of the tallest in the city. Although the day was so gray, I loved how Dennis’s red coat and the gold colors worn by both dramatically contrast with the muted tones of the streetscape. For these Old World residents, the New World will now forever be tied to their new life together! Herzlichen Glueckwunsch!
