When I tell you this was a near perfect engagement session, I really mean that!! Holy cow Nellie and Chris’s summer engagement session recently was simply gorgeous. We walked along the water by North Cove Marina as the sun set over Hoboken and the Hudson River, this lighting was spectacular!! It was so so fun to get to know Nellie and Chris more as I spent a summer evening with them, this location reflected their personalities so well!
Nellie and Chris actually met way back in 2011 at the Osprey (a super cool beachfront nightclub) in Manasquan, New Jersey. The spark was there of course, but they actually didn’t end up officially dating until 2016! Their first date was at Hundred Acres in Soho for drinks. They talked all night long at the bar and now going out for date nights is one of their favorite things to do together!! Nellie and Chris both love having nights out in New York City and hitting up places like Shuka, Up and Up and Antique Garage – these two know how to spend a night out the right way!
Three years into dating life Chris finally decided to ask Nellie to marry him. This proposal story is soo sweet! Chris took Nellie to Shuka which is where they had their very first date and was even able to reserve the very same table they sat in that first night! Little did Nellie know, Chris’s friends had been staged all around and prepped to film and photograph the entire proposal!! In front of the gorgeous windows outside Shuka Chris got down on one knee and asked Nellie to be his wife and she happily agreed! Later that night all of their friends and family surprised Nellie at their apartment for a night long celebration!
Nellie and Chris are such a fun couple to be around! They are the life of the party and their personalities complement each other perfectly. They love spending time having fun with their family and friends and entertaining! After a day of working in finance and advertising, Chris and Nellie love to open a bottle of wine and cook together. How romantic!! The right cocktails, charcuterie board and company is all Chris and Nellie need to have an amazing night together! These two definitely live life to the fullest every day and love to travel together – Napa being one of their favorite spots! I’m so jealous!!
Nellie and Chris are such passionate hard working people they really are a perfect match! They are so excited to party it up and celebrate their love story with their family and friends on their wedding day! I cannot wait to celebrate alongside of them at one of my all time favorite venues, Hamilton Farm Golf Club in October 2019! It’s going to be an epic fall wedding and I know everyone who goes to celebrate will remember it for years to come!!
