Proposal at Castle Hill Inn in Newport, RI | Chris + Sakeena

After anxiously checking the weather for a couple days (it was supposed to rain!), the weather cooperated. This allowed Chris to pull off a sweet marriage proposal at a popular restaurant, wedding venue, and proposal location: Castle Hill Inn in Newport, RI. After sharing a few words, he took a knee in front of the lighthouse near Castle Hill. And Sakeena, his girlfriend of six years, was completely surprised. But she said yes!

One thing I loved about Chris’s proposal was how thoughtful it was. Sakeena had been dreaming of this moment for a while now, dropping hints here and there about what the perfect proposal would look like. She wasn’t sure if he’d heard them all, but he did! Chris remembered all the little things that Sakeena was hoping for: a meaningful location, the perfect ring, and having a photographer present to capture some sweet memories of the proposal!

The joy and energy of their proposal was contagious and I had so much fun capturing their love for one another. It really lit up an otherwise gloomy, foggy spring day!
