Courtney & Tim


The Big Question

It was the Saturday before the Boston Marathon and some family came into town to cheer me on.  It was the first nice, warm Spring day so we traveled to the Boston Public Gardens.

With it being such a beautiful day and two days before the Marathon, there were thousands of people out and about. Tim was not expecting this, and if you knew him you would know he is generally a shy and reserved guy.  I think i noticed him panicking a bit (although at the time I wasn't sure why).

He knelt down and proposed, I said "YES!" and a thousand people cheered for us!  Looking back, it was a dream proposal, I know it didn't go as he had intentionally planned but I thought it was perfect!

Shop 'Til You Drop

My dress hunt was very low stress and easy. I had gone back home a few weeks after getting engaged and my mom asked if I wanted to go look at dresses at the boutique down the road. We didn't have any plans but they luckily had an opening. I picked out about 10 dresses to try on and the stylist picked one for me that she thought would look great on me.

I tried on every style imaginable, and ultimately fell instantly in love with the dress the stylist picked; Ravenna Jewel. Our venue was an old mansion overlooking the Newport, RI bay. The venue has a Great Gatsby/Roaring twenties feel (lots of marble, ornate decor and fireplaces) so the jewels on the Ravenna Jewel dress fit the motif perfectly.

The Perfect Day

Perfect. It was incredible to have all of our loved ones present for our wedding; we were even able to include our fur baby, our dog Bella!

The weather was also perfect, warm and sunny and the breeze from being on a cliff overlooking the water helped keep us comfortable.  the sunset was incredible and we danced and partied all night long!

Wise Words

Try on every style of dress and go into dress shopping with an open mind. Ravenna Jewel did not impress me on the hanger but once I tried it on it was heaven. It accented my curves perfectly and I love how sexy the open back is.
