Middletown, Rhode Island
I had the best time with Courtney and Jordan at their engagement session! When we first started talking locations, these two knew they wanted to take their photos at the beach — and what better beach than one right down the road from their wedding venue?! Matt and I were able to plan a quick weekend trip to Rhode Island, and as we got closer to the day-of we saw that Hurricane Lee would potentially be making its New England appearance that same day. Thankfully, it never made landfall and we had nothing but beautiful weather (with a bit of dreamy wind!).
Courtney and Jordan first met last year out at a bar! As Courtney tells it, “I saw Jordan from across the bar, and asked the bartender what his name was! Then he added me on Instagram. We have only been dating since September, but after about our third date we both knew!” When you know, you know!
Jordan totally took Courtney by surprise when he asked her to marry him this past July. They had been out with Jordan’s family celebrating his dad’s birthday in Boston, but once his family left Jordan popped the question — and Courtney, of course, said yes! Courtney’s engagement ring is absolutely stunning, a cushion diamond with a thin, gold band. “My ring is exactly what I wanted! We went and looked at rings together, but he exceeded my expectations. I only told him what shape I wanted, and he did the rest.”
Together these two live in Tewksbury, Massachusetts and love trying new restaurants together and taking their sweet pup, Maverick, out on walks and hikes. I can’t wait to celebrate Courtney and Jordan next Labor Day Weekend at Newport Beach House in Middletown, RI — it’s going to be such a beautiful day!
