Newport Harbor Island Resort Proposal | Chris + Monica

Chris emailed me a couple months ago looking for a proposal photographer in Newport, RI. He wanted to “make this proposal as special as possible” and be able to remember the joy of their moment. He and Monica had been together for five years, so he knew without a doubt that she was the one.

When I asked Chris how he knew Monica was “the one,” he had such a sweet answer:

“I always knew Monica was special. I met her at a time in my life where I wasn’t really looking for a relationship, but I knew she was different than anyone I’d ever met. No one makes me feel as happy, important, and loved as Monica does. And I know there’s no one else I’d want to spend the rest of my life with.”

Beautiful, right? So of course the location for the proposal had to be top notch. Rhode Island has many great places to propose, but Chris picked one of the best: the Newport Harbor Island Resort. The Newport Harbor Island Resort (formerly Gurney’s), is definitely on my list of places to propose in RI! It’s one of a number of hotels in Newport, Rhode Island on the water. But its view can’t be beat – it has a lighthouse looking out towards the Newport Bridge! The perfect backdrop for a proposal.

Even though it was cold and windy, Chris’s proposal to Monica was beautiful. It caught her completely by surprise and she was so excited that she was jumping up and down! It was a definite yes.
