We’ve known Randi for what feels like a lifetime. We knew her before she met Mike, before she and he became engaged…something Randi’s family (and secretly we) had long been pushing for….and before she moved to NYC to start her amazing fashion business, Spoon Fashion. We have witness lots of wonderful changes in Randi’s life and have loved bearing witness as she blossomed into the incredible, happy, fun, sweet, kind, brilliant, beautiful “Selfie Queen” that she is today! ;) (insiders nod to Ryan, Anette & Leigh)

We first met her & her equally wonderful family seven years ago, when Randi’s mom, Terri, called us in anticipation of the wedding of her son, Ryan, Randi’s big brother. He hadn’t actually popped the question yet, but would be doing so during the family’s annual July 4th pilgrimage to the Cape. She asked us to come meet them the day after the planned proposal to talk wedding photography. She also thought it might be fun to do a family photo session while everyone was together.

We had little idea that our first meeting all those years ago would result in the deep friendship we have with this family, who have become more like our own extended family.

Happily, Anette did say, “Yes!” and we were there again when they said, “I do!” at that same spot where our first meeting took place….at the beautiful Wequassett Resort in Harwich. We got to be there with them again, three years later, when Randi & Ryan’s sister, Leigh, married her true love, Zach, in another beautiful outdoor ceremony, this time at the stunning Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston, and, again, every year in between for family portrait sessions.

We’ve seen Terri & her sweet hubby, Alan, welcome new members into their happy clan and watched with full hearts as this wonderful family of five expanded to eleven. It has been a joyful journey with these amazing people and we’ve loved sharing every minute of it with them.

This latest happy chapter led us back to the Wequassett, where Randi & Mike committed their lives and hearts to one another in front of family & friends. Getting to be there, watching the love between Randi & Mike blossom with each family photo session has been such a joy. Seeing them standing beneath the flower covered chuppah, hold hands in the warmest embrace, as they committed themselves to the incredible odyssey that is marriage, was the icing on a beautiful cake, one created layer by layer with these amazing people.

It was so fun to see each sibling’s unique way of celebrating their marriage, both in the details chosen and the relationships themselves. Randi & Mike are super sweet, totally smitten and full of fun. And their wedding reflected that, in all its magnificent glory.

I’m crazy about Randi’s stunning Kwiat wedding band, so unique and simply beautiful…just like Randi…to say nothing of her sexy Jimmy Choos and Naeem Khan wedding gown.

Getting a little help from her beautiful, stylish, awesome momma, Terri, and Mike’s equally fabulous mom, Bella. Isn’t she a vision?!

Randi’s big brother, Ryan, and some of Mike’s mates enjoy their groomsmen gifts, cool ties by Vineyard Vines.

Bella helping our bella bride put on her shoes. I mean, come on….Randi you are just GORGEOUS!!

Mike gets a hand putting on his tie by groomsman extraordinaire, Mo. Such a fun group of guys!! And, that smile….think someone’s happy to marry his “girl of my dreams.”

Happiness is marrying your best friend, with those you love most there supporting you. Love the expression on the face of Mike’s super cute dad, David.

Randi chose to get ready with just her mom & Bella, which was very sweet. Equally sweet was when her best girlfriends stopped by for a quick hug and words of support before Randi headed off for her first look of Mike and some family photos. The girls joined us later. Love the way Randi’s dear friend, Shilpa, embraces her with such joy.

Mike and his mates. So cool that they all wore their own Navy suits.

Heading to the first look for photos…looking very happy!

Love these moments…when our couples see each other for the first time on their wedding day.

Soooo excited to see her soon-to-be hubby.

Oh, the joy & excitement….

Beautiful…the flowers, by Columbine Floral Design in Boston aren’t bad either! Romantic, whimsical, and all girl.

These two….just love how they love!

Anette & Ryan’s newest family member, Baby Taryn, was  napping and couldn’t make this photo, but it was just too good, and too them, not to share. Terri & Alan with their three kids, their spouses (Ryan & Anette; Leigh & Zach and of course Randi & Mike) and adored grand babies (Dillon & Jaden) love to have fun!! And we love to have fun with them!!!

Our favorite family portraits are always ones that let the personalities of our families shine through, while evoking happy emotion. This portrait of Mike & Randi with Mike’s parents, Bella & David, and his beloved Grandma Henney totally makes my heart smile big.

The gang’s all here and ready to celebrate love…

Sweet Olivia, the daughter of Randi’s good friend and bridesmaid, Alexis, was loving her role as flower girl. Randi was pretty stoked she was there too. Gorgeous girls!!!

Randi and her girls….pretty in pink in their gorgeous Amsale dresses.

Signing the ketubah is such a nice moment for a couple. Besides legalizing the marriage in the eyes of the Jewish religion, it also provides a time for family members to share their thoughts and feelings with the couple. Everyone took a moment to share something with our couple and it was just so lovely.

Randi & Mike take in all the love & well wishes being directed their way…

That moment…..even if a couple opts for a “First Look” to do their photos before the ceremony, there’s still a lot of emotion that gets packed into that moment when the groom waits for his bride to make her way to him. And, when they lock eyes….you can feel the sparks!

Randi got emotional as her mom and dad handed her off to Mike. It was a lovely moment

A hug from mom…such love & pride on her face. Just beautiful!!!

The look of love…happy to be exactly where they are, in exactly this moment.

Friends look on with shared joy….

Randi & Mike had the officiants read their vows for them and it was so beautiful!!! They each said such beautiful, heart-felt things and Randi’s reaction to Mike’s words, and the way she held his hand, left me wanting to get married all over again!

With a stomp and a kiss….and it’s official….

The new Mr. & Mrs…..Happy. Happy. Happy!

Serenaded with bubbles….

Love these two…

Kisses and cuddles and newlyweds, oh my!

Happy. Happy….

Mike does this super cute thing where he kisses Randi’s sweet little nose, and I just love her enjoying the moment, wind-blown and all!

Hummuna, Hummuna!

Hey cuties….

Hotties….

Love these new lounging fire pits the Wequassett added during their renovations last year….the perfect spot to sit and take it all in….

Love the details Randi & Terri put together….just beautiful!

Erica, one of Randi’s good friends and bridesmaid, enjoys cocktail hour with friends….love these candid moments during cocktail hour, and getting to do the photos before the ceremony allows us the time to capture wonderful moments like these. We love that!

The new Mr. & Mrs. met with happy high fives as they make their way to their reception.

Randi & Mike showing off some mad skills on the dance floor. And, their cake was topped with engraved spoons, gifted to the couple in honor of Randi & her family.

Ryan, Anette & Leigh gave one of THE best speeches/roasts we have ever seen. Aided by a slideshow of photos of Randi & Mike, they hit it out of the park and had everyone (us included) laughing and smiling and celebrating how wonderful these two special people are!! It was absolutely delightful!

Hard to contain the laughter…love it!  “If I were given the opportunity to present a gift to the next generation, it would be the ability for each individual to learn to laugh at himself.” Charles M. Schulz.

As if the gift of their wonderful speech wasn’t enough, her siblings gave Randi, the Queen of Selfies, this selfie stick and Christened it with a group photo! I want a copy of that photo!! Soooo fun!

Getting down with her gal pals.

Mike’s mates give him a little lift…

Guests get down on it….

A perfect ending to a perfect fairytale wedding…

Randi & Mike, I think you know by now how much we adore you both, but getting to be a part of your wedding was something so special and we absolutely LOVED every moment of your incredible day!! You two are such wonderful individuals, an incredible couple and are so blessed to be surrounded by such love & support!! We happily include ourselves among those who love & support you! We hope you can feel that in these special moments we captured for you!! Cannot wait to share the whole collection with you, but hope this sneak peek tides you over for a bit…shouldn’t be long until we send you everything! Until then, we thank you sooo much for sharing such a day with us!! We look forward to watching where life takes you both next!! Big love & hugs, Christine & Andy xoxoxoxo

We’d also like to extend a special thank you to Linda Matzkin at Hopple Popple and Kalson Pang at Wequassett for working so hard to make the day a complete dream!

Life is a like a woven tapestry. Strands of thread, intersecting and forming connection to create something larger and more meaningful. This is how I think about Kerri & Billy’s love story, like an afghan created over many years, looping with moments of intersecting lives, yet not fully wrapping them in its embrace until the time is just right.

Kerri & Billy both grew up in Milton, MA. Their grandparents were friends and their moms went to the same high school. And, when they were just babes, Kerri & Billy even attended the same day care….two sweet, unsuspecting little lives growing up and moving along destined paths, ever leading one to the other.

Although they knew who each other was in high school, they never really spoke until college. “I always knew the name Billy B., (But), whenever we were at the same parties I was too nervous to talk to him. I think I was just intimidated by how cute he was,” Kerri told us.

In September of 2011, these two, adorable, fun, loving people finally met at a Bruins’ hockey game they attended with mutual friends. Finally, the stars aligned and love struck hard.

“We were at a bar after the game and Billy gave me a head not to come over from across the bar and I walked right over (haha, so smooth Bill),” Kerri told us. “We talked for what I thought was about three hours and he asked me if he could kiss me…ahhh, it wasn’t even our first date. We kissed all the way home, before I got dropped off back at my apartment. I’m not sure it was love at first sight or what, but I definitely knew I liked him a lot right away. Things just got better and better the more we talked. I would get butterflies every time we spoke.”

“I do think it was a mix of love at first sight and fate,” Billy told us. “I defitinely believe that things happen for a reason and I really believe that meeting Kerri that night was meant to be.”

These two cuties will say “I do!” later this summer at a place very special to Andy & me….Bourne Farm. It is where we both said, “I do!” just a couple of weeks before Kerri & Billy actually met…it’s like we were destined to be their photographers!!!!

We got together with these sweethearts last week at Kerri’s grandmother’s home in Falmouth, where Kerri and her family (and now Billy) spend a lot of time during the summer. “My favorite thing to do with Kerri is everything we do when we are down the Cape…whether it is hanging on the boat, taking a bike ride on the bike path, or just hanging in the backyard enjoying a few drinks,” Billy said. So, we thought….what better backdrop for a bello love session than a place so rich with meaning for our sweet couple.

The boat on which they spend many an afternoon fishing and just relaxing….they look pretty relaxed right here!

I just love that their lives seemed destined to arrive here….in the warmth of each others’ embrace!!!

These two were so fun to photograph. They just love being together and it’s so obvious to see. They are silly and sweet with each other and needed no help being absolutely adorable in front of our cameras!! Love them!!!

May all your tomorrows feel like this…

“LOOOOOVEEE, exciting and new….come aboard. We’re expecting you!! And, love….life’s sweetest reward. Let it flow….it floats back to you!! The Loooooveee Boattt! Soon, we’ll be making another run!!! The Loooooveee Boattt!”

Here, is where I was always meant to be….

xo

In your arms and by your side…..swoon!

Love these two….

I mean come on….are they cute or what?!!

Where you go, I will surely follow….

This is how these two often look….smiling from ear to ear, completely happy to be together! LOVE!!

beach beauties…

The kiss….

Happy. Happy. Happy!

Kerri & Billy, thank you both sooooo much for opening your hearts to us in such a warm & welcoming way! Right from our first meeting, we knew you two were people we wanted to get to know better and that your love story was one we soooo wanted to tell! You guys are absolutely adorable together, but you’re also just really wonderful individuals, who have felt more like old friends than a couple who’s wedding we’re going to photograph. Thank you so much for making us feel that way!!! Loved hanging out with you both before, during and after the session and cannot wait till we get to see you both again!! Until then, we hope you enjoy this little sneak peek….more to follow soon!! We hope you love the photos as much as we adore both of you!

With big love & hugs, Chris & Andy xoxo

PS…special thanks too to Deb, Mike & Ritchie for also making us feel super welcome!! You guys are wonderful and we can’t wait to meet the rest of the gang!! xo

Last week we had the pleasure of finally meeting New York sweeties, Brooke & Will. Brooke’s mom had first reached out to us about photographing her daughter’s wedding last year, after we photographed the wedding of their friends, Kate & Hugh. Although we didn’t really meet Brooke & Will at the wedding, they were there getting their party on.

In just a few months, they will throw their own wedding day party extraordinaire at the stunning New York Yacht Club in Newport. We are super excited to be a part of documenting all that love & celebration!

We had asked Brooke & Will what are some of their favorite things to do together and when they said, “we love riding bikes in the Cape,” we thought this would be the perfect fun activity for them to do together on their bello love session.

Brooke had mentioned she’s not a huge fan of being photographed…which after having met her seems a terrible shame. The girl is stunning and the camera loves her!! So, we thought having something fun to do might help take the edge off. I think it’s safe to say it did, and in the process we were able to capture some super cute moments with these two sweeties.

Bonus….Brooke’s folks had two seriously adorable beach cruisers, which just so happened to match what our lovely couple was wearing. (I might have squealed a little when I saw them!)

A little sun flare + a couple of vintage inspired beach cruisers + a couple in love = photographer heaven.

A little background on these cuties….Brooke & Will met while sitting outside at a restaurant on the Upper East Side. Brooke was with her best friend from college, Paige, and Will, who Paige knew because their moms are friends, walked up and said hi. Curious and interested, Brooke quickly asked, “Who is that?!”

They ended up sitting at nearby tables, and Will came up a few times to see if the girls wanted to go out for drinks after. They did and a spark was ignited. Will asked Brooke out on a date and things continued to move forward in the months that followed.

“Our love definitely grew over time,” they told us. “We had a lot of fun when we first met, but we both take some time to get to know.”

For Memorials Day, about six month after that first meeting, they took at trip to San Francisco to visit Will’s sister and tour the vineyards. It became clear then that their love had grown deep. “There was no specific moment, but there was just something about that trip,” Brooke said.

Brooke’s beautiful face lights up when she looks at Will…it’s really just the sweetest thing to see.

Love this fun perspective…

It was so sweet watching them together. Although Brooke told us she was nervous being photographed, those nerves seemed to result in the biggest, most lovely smiles. I’m kind of hoping she’s just as nervous at the wedding. It’s working for you, girl! ;)

For this next photo, I can almost hear whistling, like from the old Andy Griffith show reruns (whicccchhh….my parents, no grandparents…yeah, that’s the ticket…told me about. I’ve never actually seen it. That would have been waaaaaay before my time! That’s my story & I’m sticking to it!!) It just feels so sweet, wholesome and happy.

Happy. Happy. Happy.

Sweet & wholesome too.

A fun perspective with up close motion.

Weeeeeeeeeeee…this is fun!

After goofing around for a bit, we headed back to Brooke’s parents’ place to drop off the bikes and then head to the beach. But, first a quick pic to take advantage of the gorgeous blossoming tree.

Hi cuties!!

A setting sun and a little snuggling with your sweetie….Cape Cod perfection.

kisses and cuddles…

and giggles and silhouettes oh my!

As we were driving out of the beach, we spotted this gorgeous red fox and I had to stop for a quick photo. Isn’t he/she beautiful!?!

Brooke & Will thank you both so much for spending all of that time with us…we know it was a tad more than your hungry little belly would have liked, Brooke, but we appreciate it and hope you find after seeing this sneak peek that it was worth it! We had such a great time with you both and can’t wait to be there with you later this summer as you say, “I do!” Thank you too Susan, Alan & Tripp for making us feel so welcome!! See you all again soon! Until then, big hugs, Chris & Andy xoxo

We got together with one of our special couples, Keri & Jim, recently for their bello love session. We first met them in November of 2013. Jim had reached out to us with a plan to propose to Keri and he wanted to further surprise her by having it documented. This was our first official proposal session and we had sooooo much fun! The honor and privilege of getting to bear witness to such a personal moment was not lost on us romantics.

I spoke several times with Jim leading up to the proposal to make sure we wouldn’t miss a thing. We brought some prosecco and a blanket and couldn’t wait to celebrate with them when Keri inevitably said, “Yes!” to this sweet thoughtful man who went to such lengths for his sweetheart. Click HERE for a peek at the proposal and private celebration that followed.

So when we got together again two weeks ago, it was like meeting up with old friends. Because we had spent the first photo session at the beach, we decided to mix it up and do something different this time. Here are a few of our favorite moments from our time together.

We started our session at Spohrs Garden in Woods Hole.

Happy times with our old pals….

Although they both attended the University of Connecticut at the same time, it wasn’t until they began working for a promotions company that their paths crossed. One day, as part of their job, they were thrown together and charged with driving a giant Dunkin’ Donuts truck to and from Portland, Maine for an event. Fifteen hours later, the two were fast friends. “There really is nothing like spending a ‘few’ hours in Masspike traffic to really get to know someone,” they told us.

Their first official date didn’t come until several years later, when they met for pizza “as friends.” One red potato with bacon pizza and several dates later and that friendship blossomed into something more.

Since then, Jim & Keri have added a sweet pug, Brewster, to the mix. And, now, nine years after that first fateful meeting they are preparing to wed at the stunning Branford House in Groton, Connecticut. We can’t wait to be there with them later this summer, to watch and bear witness as the “Yes!” we were so fortunate to see turns into, “I do!” We’re also pretty stoked to get to photograph at the Branford House. Don’t get me wrong, we feel super blessed to get to live and work in such an amazingly beautiful place, but it’s always fun and a kind of creative recharge when we get to go and shoot somewhere entirely new to us. Can’t think of a better couple to share that with than these two cuties!

After mooching around Spohrs Garden, we headed to downtown Falmouth to take their love to the streets. And, for me…those in between moments, when we’re not really yet ready to take photos often result in some of my favorite pictures. Like this next one…

Kisses and big happy smiles…with a little spring color and a touch of Americana thrown in….doesn’t get much better than that!

Arm-in-arm, with best friend by my side….this is where I always want to be.

A quaint little nook and some love nuzzling….yes, please!

xo

These two are so happy together. Watching them make each other laugh and smile made it hard not to laugh and smile ourselves!

Cafe kissess….

…for the soon to be Mr. and Mrs.

In your eyes….the light the heat….I am complete!

Courtyard gardens and moments like these….this is summer on Cape Cod.

After nine years together, cuddling on the couch together starts to feel as effortless as breathing. I say this as someone who lives to cuddle on the couch.

Sweet, tender, thoughtful, playful wonderful Jim and his smitten, smiley, lovely Keri! You guys are ADORBS!

Hey now….

In your arms, is where I always want to be……love these moments with our bello couples!

A little back alley somethin’ somethin’…..ohhh yeah!!

Of course, I actually said something to that effect…which caused this reaction. You guys…..

Oh, the beautiful love….

And, like that…it’s a wrap for another super fun bello love session.

Keri & Jim….thank you both so much for making the trek all the way up & down here to the Cape to spend the evening with us. We loved every minute of our time together and hope you can feel that affection in these photos!! We hope too that as you look at them, you get even more excited for your big day and all the love & celebration sure to surround you!! We are so looking forward to seeing you both again, and getting your cute mugs back in front of our cameras!! Until then….Thank you! Thank you! Thank you…for being so warm, wonderful and welcoming and for putting so much trust in us!! It means more than you know!!!

Sending big hugs & love, Chris & Andy xoxo

Jim : Chris and Andy - WOW!!! so many great shots!! Thanks so much for everything and can't wait to see you in CT in September! You guys rock!
Lucinda G. : Just wonderful pictures!! Need I say more! Cindy

One of the gifts of our profession is that we get to see love manifest in a lot of different ways. Every now and then, (though it seems to be happening a lot lately) a very special brand of love crosses our path. Even before spending any significant time together, we get a sense of just how special their love is when our couple sends us back our Getting To Know You questionnaire and the two page form is now transformed to six pages filled with lots of wonderful sharing about why, what and how they love each other.

It’s as if they just can’t hold back how much they love each other and the opportunity to share that becomes another celebration of their love.

Such was the case with Jenn & Jordan. Right from the first question, Jenn & Jordan let the flood gates open and shared with us (often using all caps :) ) how they met and how love quickly took hold.

In the summer of 2012, Jennifer was asked to come back home to Cape Cod, to work at Cape Cod Hospital as an ultrasound sonogropher. Jordan was also working there as a radiologists’ assistant. Friends and coworkers had been telling Jennifer and Jordan about the other, though they didn’t meet until they were finally scheduled to do a procedure together.

As soon as Jordan walked in the room and he locked eyes with Jenn, there was instant chemistry and both began to blush. Jordan began talking with their patient as Jenn performed the ultrasound.

“He was very professional, although appeared nervous,” Jenn told us, and she wondered, ‘Is he always like this?’

A nurse in the room later told Jenn that she had never seen Jordan so flustered and thought he might have a crush. She also explained that unfortunately Jordan had just accepted a new job in Connecticut and today was his last day on the Cape.

At the end of the day, Mary Ellen, one of the nurses that both Jordan and Jenn loved and trusted, told them that everyone from work was meeting up after their shift for drinks and they should both join them. As it turned out, “everyone” meant just Jenn & Jordan. Although it was a bit awkward to start, the seed of love had definitely been planted and the two arranged to meet again for a proper date.

Jordan made plans to drive from Connecticut to take Jenn out to dinner on the Cape. Right before they were supposed to meet, Jordan called Jenn to say he was sorry, but he was going to be a little late and could they meet in an hour.

“I thought, Great, he’s late on the first date…not a good sign. Red Flag,” Jenn told us. But, when Jordan arrived, he had a bandage on his head and explained that he had been in a ‘small car accident.’ It was no big deal, he said, but that’s why he was late.

“I felt so bad that I was just judging him on his tardiness, when the poor guy got into a car accident,” Jenn told us.

After dinner, as they were walking outside to their cars, Jenn noticed Jordan’s front windshield was blown out on the driver’s side.

“Jordan failed to tell me he WENT THROUGH THE WINDSHIELD, spoke to the police, denied medical attention, bandaged himself up and then drove to the restaurant with his windshield in pieces and blown out where his head went through,” Jenn said. “I couldn’t believe he would go through all of that just to take me out on a date.”

“I knew this guy was either A) just plain crazy or B) cray about me,” she said. “Luckily, it was option number two. I’m a lucky girl!”

Jordan told us that for him, it was love at first sight. “Meeting Jenn at the hospital on my last day was the best day of my work life. Jenn thought we were just going to be a summer fling, but I knew that we were meant to be way more than that,” he said.

Jordan drove back to Cape Cod every weekend after that first date, just to take her out to dinner and spend a few hours together. “The way Jenn was always up front and never played a game made me fall even more in love,” he said. “When I stared my new job working the overnights in Connecticut, Jennifer was so worried about me. It was a hard transition and Jennifer made it an easy shift. Just hearing her voice on the phone before I went into work and before I went to sleep made everything okay. She is my everything.”

We got together with these two love birds, back on the Cape where it all started. We met at the Knob in Falmouth, where Jenn & Jordan used to enjoy taking walks together, or picnic. Getting to be around love like this…the kind you can feel radiating off of them….is so wonderful for Andy & me. We first met twenty years ago…it feels crazy saying that because I swear it feels like just yesterday, and yet also like a lifetime ago. But, getting to be around people like Jordan & Jenn, who love so big and with their hearts wide open really does help remind us of what’s important in life and love, which, if you’re not careful, can be easy to forget when you’re with the same person for so long.

When we asked Jenn & Jordan what they love most about each other, their answers were much the same. Jenn: “I love how big Jordan’s heart is. He would do anything for anyone he knows, even if they were just an acquaintance. It’s just the type of person he is. Jordan is my safe…I know that sounds crazy, but he’s the only person in the world that I know will have my back no matter what. He’s my rock.” Jordan: “I love how much Jennifer loves and cares for others. She’s my everything.” And you can see this connection just in the way they are together. It’s so lovely!

You’ve got me. And, I’ve got you…

And, even being nervous about being photographed, you could see the way they rely on each other, lean on each other, and hold tightly to that special thing that just makes them work! And, the cute way they giggle together is pretty darned awesome too!

Lots of smiles and giggles and big beautiful LOVE!

Sunset at a special picnic spot. Here in the arms of the one you love. This is as good as it gets!!!

Heavenly…

The look of love!!

Warm light, blowing tall beach grass and dreamy embraces. Yes! Yes! And Yes!

Love this moment…just before lips meet. Can’t you just feel the love and anticipation of a simple moment, but one packed with meaning!?!

Happy girl. Smitten boy. The real thing!

Toe to toe and by your side, this is where I always want to be.

Love their expressions in this next out! Just LOVE!!!

Love the way these two are together…so much happiness and the laughter flows as easily as the champagne!

The perfect picnic spot….in fact, this is exactly where Andy asked me to marry him. So, getting to be here with these two…on this spot, which was as special for them as it was for us, was such a treat!! Love these two!

In your eyes…I see myself, my future, my everything.

Da bling…

I’m pretty sure Pharrell wrote, “Happy” with moments like this in mind!!! I hear it in my head when I look at their faces!! Just wonderful!!

Cute, cute, and more cute!!!

This wasn’t THE rowboat, but two years after that meeting in the hospital, Jordan took Jenn away for a weekend in Mystic, Connecticut to celebrate two years together and suggested they rent a rowboat. It was there on the water, just the two of them that Jordan asked Jenn to marry him. She, of course, said, “Yes!” and as he rowed back to the dock, Jennifer & Jordan’s families were there waiting for them to celebrate the night together.

Jenn  & Jordan will take that yes and turn it into a couple of “I dos!!” later this summer in Chatham and we cannot wait!!!!

The sun may be setting in this next photo, but it’s just rising on their love story and we are so excited to get to be a part of documenting this most auspicious chapter!!!

Jenn & Jordan, thank you so very much for such a wonderful afternoon/evening and for entrusting us with capturing who you both are and the beautiful love you share!! We are so excited to meet your families & friends and get to be there with you when you commit your hearts and lives to one another!!! We just know it’s going to be an amazing day of love & joyful celebration!!! Until then, we hope you enjoy this little sneak peek of how we see you two and your inspiring love!! More to follow soon!! Big love & hugs, Chris & Andy xoxo
