Spring Princeton University Engagement

Princeton, New Jersey


What a fun night with sweet Victoria and Paul! We were literally laughing throughout the entire session, and I truly could have hung out with these two for hours! Although our original date had to be rescheduled due to rain, we were lucky enough to experience the most beautiful, late-spring weather this evening.

Victoria and Paul first met on a Friday night out in Hoboken three and a half years ago at a bar called Madison’s! As Victoria tells it, “Paul was out on a boys’ night with two friends and I was out on a girls’ night with two friends. We had mutual friends in common who met up that night and introduced us. For me, I knew the moment I met him — something inside of me just knew that he was my person. We went out on our first date two days later and it lasted eight hours! The rest really was history — we’ve been together ever since!”

Paul officially popped the question this past December right before Christmas at the holiday market in Bryant Park! Victoria was so surprised, and she of course said yes! “My ring is an oval cut with a simple diamond band. It’s exactly what I wanted! Paul knew what I wanted, but wanted it to be a surprise so he designed the ring by himself.”

Together these two live in Hoboken with their ADORABLE Golden Retriever puppy, Sammy. In their spare time, Victoria and Paul love exploring new towns in New Jersey together, trying new restaurants, and finding new shops and local bakeries to try out. “I’ve converted Paul into a Bravo fan, so we enjoy cuddling up on the couch on weeknights and watching the latest episode of a Bravo show. Our weekends lately have been filled with fun puppy adventures and trips to Petsmart! Being together and enjoying the fun of a new puppy has been some of our favorite days together.”

Victoria and Paul initially planned to do their engagement photos at Skylands Manor, but decided to change the location to Princeton because it was a more meaningful place to them. “My mom has worked at Princeton University as an event planner for the last 20 years, so we have visited many times and we both really love the area. We love walking around and visiting the shops and restaurants!”

I couldn’t be more excited to see these two again in a little over a year for their July wedding at Park Chateau — it’s going to be such a beautiful celebration!
