April + Jordan – Harry Potter Inspired Engagement Session – Haverhill, MA

It’s no secret that we LOVE Harry Potter here at Mon Petit {Okay, maybe Stella, especially}. When April & Jordan first contacted us to shoot their upcoming Harry Potter inspired wedding, we were over the moon excited! When they mentioned that they wanted their engagement session to be Harry Potter inspired too, we were even more ecstatic and started the hunt for the most perfect location. We thought about woods, woods are always good and Harry Potter-ish, and then… we found Winnekenni Castle in Haverhill, MA and we fell in love. It was the absolute perfect location for our session! It was a chilly day but you can hardly tell from the photos! Maybe it’s all the snuggling that April & Jordan were doing. Their sweet pup, Finnick {Ha! LOVE that name!} had fun running around and even joining in on a few of the photos. April & Jordan are just oodles of fun! From tossing leaves in the air to climbing up massive tree limbs, these two are just up for anything and their love for one another is so evident. They are simply adorable and made for each other. April & Jordan are tying the knot next year and we can’t wait for their big day! It’s going to be so-totally-over-the-moon-awesome, we can’t wait!

And now for our fellow Harry Potter lovers, we leave you with this: “There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.”

April + Jordan’s Q&A

How did you meet?

April: Officially? At a friend’s house party where I drunkenly spilled my drink all over myself… Jordan gave me the shirt off his back so I wouldn’t be a wet fool. Such a gentleman.

Jordan: We met at a friend’s party, but I knew of her prior to the party. Another person at the party spilled his drink all over April’s shirt and I gave her the shirt off my back. I had two shirts and she needed one, so why not help her out? After that, we flirted the rest of the night and started hanging out the next couple of weeks until things got more serious.

What did you first notice about your sweetie?

April: His gorgeous blue eyes, then secondly his obnoxiously adorable uncontrolled bodily functions… cute.

Jordan: Her smile.

What do you like to do together?

April: Everything… Swimming, bowling, laughing, eating, driving, napping, playing with our furry children. We’ve also been watching a lot of DVD’s lately.

Jordan: Anything to do with Harry Potter!!! Hang out with our pets.

Who’s the most ticklish?

April: Ooooh, that’s tough. It depends on my mood, but if you even touch his feet, he’s a big baby about it.

Jordan: I am.

Tell us the Proposal Story!

April: So to leave out embarrassing details, he basically had my Harry Potter music playing in the kitchen, caught me fresh from the shower, pulled out my wand with the ring on it, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I may have punched him and cried… a lot. (Turns out my parents knew it was coming, he had asked them weeks before, making it all the sweeter.)

Jordan: April had just read me this article she found online about “When you know, you know” and it made me think I should go for it, now that she is not expecting it at all. I waited until she got out of the shower and put on the soundtrack to Harry Potter. I put the ring on her wand from Harry Potter World and got one knee and proposed even while she was just in a towel and didn’t have her glasses on. She of course punched me and cried A LOT. I was nervous but I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.

What’s your favorite feature/characteristic about your sweetie?

April: I love his laugh and his ability to make me laugh… always. His compassion towards me, our babies (the furry ones), his work ethic and just his face.

Jordan: Her butt.

Have you picked a honeymoon destination? If so, where are you going?

April: Not yet, we are entertaining the idea of Hawaii, who knows, maybe another trip to Hogwarts.

Jordan: Not 100% but I’m hoping for Hawaii.

How is the wedding planning going?

April: Swimmingly! I’m having a blast and Jordan is helping where he needs to and letting me do my thing.

Jordan: Very well, we are trying to make as much stuff for the wedding as possible, instead of just buying decorations.

What are you most excited about for the wedding?

April: Becoming Mrs. Jordan LaRoche. Marrying my best friend and throwing a (what I hope is) magical wedding. I think just seeing all of the love that goes into, and that surrounds us & the wedding is going to be such a life changing event!

Jordan: Marrying her and having her in my life forever! …and the food.
