Katie & Ryan’s Puppy Love Engagement Session @ Fort Stark– New Castle, NH

We had such a great day hanging out with Katie & Ryan {and their new little chocolate lab pup, Ryder!} in New Castle, NH! We spent the afternoon walking around Fort Stark and enjoying the perfect weather and wonderful historic buildings! Katie & Ryan are tying the knot this August and we just can’t wait for their big day! These two are SO in love! We’re not going to lie, little Ryder was a lot of fun to play with too!

WE ASKED THE HAPPY COUPLE TO ANSWER A FEW QUESTIONS SO THAT WE CAN ALL GET TO KNOW THEM A LITTLE BETTER. HERE’S HOW THEY REPLIED:

 

How did you meet? 

Bride’s Answer: We knew each other through mutual friends in high school, and reconnected one summer in college before I left for France. I couldn’t believe he was willing to wait four months for me while I was studying abroad!

Groom’s Answer: We met at Breaking New Grounds, in downtown Portsmouth, through a friend and went to the beach the next day.

What did you first notice about your sweetie?

Bride’s Answer: His hair and his personality.

Groom’s Answer: Her smile is always the first thing I notice.

What do you like to do together?

Bride’s Answer: Anything outside! Walks downtown, snowboarding, traveling, visiting the SPCA. :)

Groom’s Answer: Cooking, snowboarding, watching T.V., playing with the cats and dogs, riding mopeds, and enjoying the outdoors.

Who’s the most ticklish? 

Bride’s Answer: Me!

Groom’s Answer: She is!

Tell us the proposal story!  

Bride’s Answer: Ryan picked out the diamond for the ring (his great grandmother’s) while I was in Italy last June. We went for a picnic the weekend I got back and he couldn’t wait to give it to me so he brought the ring along in the cooler. We found a nice spot on the rocks down by the water, but I couldn’t figure out why he was so upset about the people fishing there. Luckily they left, and Ryan told me to get up and get ready to go. When I turned around, he was down on one knee!

Groom’s Answer: We rode mopeds to Fort Stark for a picnic in July. We picked a nice spot next to the water out on the rocks to eat lunch. After lunch, we just sat and watched the sailboats. Katie stood up and put her moped helmet on. I told her to take off the helmet, and when she did, I proposed to her.

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

Bride’s Answer: He knows what he wants in life and isn’t afraid to go for it. He has a big heart and will go out of his way to help people he cares about. I always know how much he cares about me.

Groom’s Answer: She is so adventurous!

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

Bride’s Answer: Yes! Costa Rica!

Groom’s Answer: Costa Rica! Zip-lining, surfing, white water rafting, volcano hikes, and cloud forests.

How is the wedding planning going?  

Bride’s Answer:  Good, slow…

Groom’s Answer: Almost done!

What are you most excited about for the wedding?  

Bride’s Answer:  For him to see my dress. :)

Groom’s Answer: Having a good time.
