My Bernheim Story: Emily Cruz

By Jenny Zeller

We got married in the Quiet Garden in October of 2013. We fell in love with the beauty and peacefulness of the park. Now every year we come back and take the same picture in the same place on our wedding anniversary, to document our journey. We plan to continue to do so every year and eventually put an album together for our son when he turns 18.
