Kate and Matt met each other through their college roommates. She went to Quinnipiac University and he to the University of Rhode Island.
Matt proposed to Kate on the morning of New Year’s Eve in 2014 in the condo they had purchased a few months before. “The ring is a gorgeous marquise cut diamond from the 1900s and belonged to my great-grandmother,” Kate says.
The couple, who live outside of Boston, decided to head to Harpswell, Maine to have their engagement photos taken by Courtney Elizabeth
. Matt’s parents own a house in Harpswell, and the couple posed on the beach and surrounding property.
“Harpswell is so beautiful, and has such a lovely combination of both rocky ocean coast and lush, green forest, that we thought it would be the perfect backdrop for our photos,” Kate says. “The grey skies made for the most gorgeous natural lighting and we were so happy with how they turned out!”
