Abby and I talked for hours during our first phone call! And that’s how I knew that I, not only wanted to work with these guys- but I wanted to be their friends. And now after their Engagement Session at the Crane Estates- I can honestly say that we are friends.

This entire engagement session left me in Awe. I mean… this venue was Epic in nature! It boasted amazing Ocean Views, magnificent mansions, Rolling hills, colorful gardens, sculptures, and the most amazing beach, are just a few of the options here!

But what was even better, was the company I was with! Abby and Anthony are just two of the coolest, people! I could have hung out with them forever.

The Crane Estates

Wow- I mean just Wow! This property is just incredible. But what it made it even more special… was the fact that it held special meaning to Anthony. He would visit this location on a regular basis when he was a child. AND… he even had his prom here!

Abby and Anthony will be getting married this coming April at the Bedford Village Inn!! And I couldn’t be more excited for these two!

So Why don’t I just show you some photos- and let’s hear from the couple themselves!!

How did you guys meet?

Anthony and I met in college at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire. I was a junior and he was a sophomore.

Tell us about your first date! (Was it fun, awkward, boring, etc) We love the details!!

Our first date was at Not Your Average Joes in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

Tell us about the proposal!

Anthony always said that he would never propose on a holiday. It just so happened to be the coldest Thanksgiving we had in years. I always run a Thanksgiving 5k road race with my family. After, I went back to Anthony and I’s apartment and got ready for the day to visit family. I was getting things ready to be packed in the car when Anthony popped the question in our kitchen. He caught me off guard and I took a few seconds to realize what he had asked. I finally said yes! We were able to celebrate Thanksgiving and our engagement with both our families.

What do you guys do for fun? (Both together and as individuals?)

Together we both enjoy golfing, skiing, watching Game of Thrones, going on coffee dates, late-night ice cream shop trips, exploring new dive bars for the best chicken fingers and beer, and car karaoke. I enjoy horseback riding, running and shopping. Anthony enjoys playing Fortnite, playing soccer, boating and has a big sweet tooth!

Does either of you have funny quirks or habits that drive the other nuts? (HAHA)

Anthony is a morning person and I am NOT! He enjoys waking me up early and then he has to listen to me complain, which he doesn’t always love!

How are the wedding plans coming along? What are your wedding day visions?

Our wedding planning is coming along well. We have most of our boxes checked off! Our wedding visions for our big day is that we have beautiful weather! Since our wedding is in April and we live in New England, you never know! Our wedding is at the Bedford Village Inn which has natural beauty. Our wedding will have a rustic, clean and natural theme with lots of white flowers and greenery.

As a couple who is currently actively planning your wedding- can you offer any advice to other couples? What would be your biggest piece of advice?

Anthony and I are currently planning the wedding with the help of our families. Wedding venues and services book up fast! I would suggest that you research venues and tour them so you are able to get the time of year you are looking for. A big piece of advice I would give is to have fun and don’t get stressed out!
