Rachel & Chris’s New England Wedding
Chris and Rachel met while working at Yale-New Haven Hospital. They both instantly felt connected to one another. Even though they knew each other for very short period of time they felt as if they had known each other for years! Fast forward a few years and Chris adorably (and very creatively) popped the question to Rachel. See below for the whole proposal story!
These two said “I do” in Leominster, MA on a very COLD New England day! We had a blast taking wedding photos with this couple… even when the temperature felt like it was below zero. This bride and groom and their whole wedding party were a bunch of pros when it came to smiling in the cold temps. Congrats to the beautiful bride and groom!
The proposal story told from the brides point of view: It was the day/night before Thanksgiving 2013 – just two days after we purchased and moved into our new condo in Malden, Ma. Chris planned it out well. Let it be known that I’m a jigsaw puzzle lover. That morning, I woke up to a box containing a puzzle to be put together. It revealed that Chris would be picking me up from work that evening. When Chris arrived at my work, there was another puzzle to be put together. This time it revealed a clue that we were going out to dinner in Boston’s North End. After dinner, we arrived back at our condo and there was one last puzzle – a larger one containing a collage of pictures of us. I put it together quickly, but there were some pieces missing. When I looked up, there were candles lit around the living room and Chris was on one knee. Chris put the last few puzzle pieces together that said, “Will you marry me?”
