Becky + Peter – Downtown Portsmouth NH Engagement Session

Want to know what it looks like to totally rock your engagement session with some pretty sweet style? Check out Becky + Peter! They totally nailed their Downtown Portsmouth NH Engagement Session! Not only are these two sweeties stylish, they’re oh-so-very-in-love and they ADORE laughing! I know right? It doesn’t get much better than a couple madly in love and filled to the brim with giggles. When we started off their session at the always gorgeous Prescott Park, we knew we had to explore the colors, textures, and charm that Strawberry Banke and the rest of Downtown Portsmouth has to offer – and that’s exactly what we did! We trekked the streets {Becky was the bravest of all – fearlessly walking down cobblestone alleys with those fab fuchsia pumps!} The end result? A collection filled with oodles of love, laughter, and so much New England charm! It’s probably pretty obvious that we had a blast working with these two {but if not – we did!} and we cannot wait for their big day in 2015! We just know it’s going to be totally awesome!

Becky + Peter Q&A

How did you meet?

Becky: We met through a mutual friend.  We lost touch for a while and he tried to reconnect by asking me if I wanted to go to Bonnaroo out of the blue.  I suggested we hang out some time in Boston (where we both lived at the time.) I thought we were all hanging out as a big group; he thought it was going to be a date.  Turns out he was right! And we went to Bonnaroo together the next year.

Peter: We met through a mutual friend that lived in the area. I thought Becky was cute and funny from the first time we met however, it took me a while to get around to asking her out.  I will always be grateful her maid of honor was busy that night because Becky did not originally consider it a date but I think it is safe to say we hit it off.

What did you first notice about your sweetie?

Becky: When I first met him I noticed that Pete was really fun.  He was always really outgoing. We just clicked.

Peter: I first noticed that she was always smiling and how cute she is with her big smile and blue eyes.  Every time we hung out when first getting to know each other she was a lot of fun and we always had a really good time together.

What do you like to do together?

Becky: We love to travel, go to concerts, movies, hanging out with friends and family.

Peter: We love going to concerts and seeing live music, traveling to new places, spending time with close friends and family, going to the Patriots games (sometimes) and enjoying the outdoors.

Who’s the most ticklish?

Becky: Oh man, definitely me…..And (un)fortunately for me Pete thinks it’s hilarious.

Peter: Becky – without any hesitation.

Tell us the Proposal Story!

Becky: We went out to dinner for our two-year anniversary.  The restaurant was in a restored church and it was gorgeous!  We had decided no gifts, but I had made a point to tell him a few days before that I bought him a card.  That whole day he was acting a little strange, so I thought something might be up. But while we were out running errands he tried to sneak off at the grocery store so he could buy a card last minute that day right in front of me!  That pretty much convinced me he hadn’t planned anything.  Little did I know he had planned everything out with the restaurant and coordinated with his sister to take pictures of the whole thing.  After we had eaten dinner he read his card to me, and said some of the sweetest things ever, and got down on one knee and asked me.  Of course I said yes!

Peter: I had been considering when and where would be a good place to ask Becky.  About a month before hand, I had decided to ask her when we were celebrating our 2 year anniversary in Portland, ME.  I enlisted Caitlin’s (Maid of Honor) help to confirm my ring selection.  We went to dinner at a beautiful restaurant in a converted church called Grace.  My sister hid there to take pictures and capture it.  The food was amazing and the whole staff anxiously awaited the proposal.  After dinner we exchanged cards and I read mine aloud to Becky and then asked her to marry me.  Everyone at the restaurant broke into applause when she accepted.

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

Becky: His beard and his sense of humor.

Peter: I love how open minded she is and willing to visit new places and try new things together. We always enjoy each other’s company no matter what we are doing.

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

Becky: Not yet! There are too many options.  I want to go everywhere!

Peter: Not yet, we are considering Hawaii or Europe for a 2 week trip.

How is the wedding planning going?

Becky: Going well so far! Thankfully we seem to be on the same page for most things.

Peter: It is going pretty well we have major components picked out with over a year to go.  I think this will help make it less overwhelming.  We are both good planners so I expect most decisions to be worked out easily.

What are you most excited about for the wedding?

Becky: Getting together with all of our friends and family to celebrate!!

Peter: I am most excited to see how beautiful Becky will be in her wedding dress.  Also very excited to celebrate with our family and friends.
