    After a chance meeting at a friend's barbecue, Dania and Lou fell in love and dated for two years before getting married. Fast-forward 10 years to today and this snapshot of their stylish and blossoming life.  Dania's career as a marketing and public relations consultant for design and architecture clients is taking off, they just welcomed their second child, and they've settled into a three-bedroom apartment they purchased four years ago in Brooklyn's Park Slope neighborhood.
