Newport, Rhode Island Sunset Proposal


Wondering how she asked? With a plethora of little details, Brooke asked Emily to marry her on the edge of a Newport, Rhode Island dock followed by an intimate sunset engagement photo session.

Brooke approached us because she wanted help planning her proposal to Emily, which was a month away! We didn’t have much time to spare, so we immediately got to work putting together the venue, decor, and all of the details.

One of our favorite little details, was that Brooke and Emily’s story started around the song “I Choose You” by Sara Bareilles (she even had lyrics engraved into Emily’s ring!). We knew this was the perfect detail to incorporate into the proposal, so we had the lyrics of the song guide Emily down the dock to where Brooke would propose!

Brooke was so organized, she even brought nail polish and painted Emily’s nails before we started taking their engagement pictures. Talk about #couplegoals!
