ALEXANDRA AND ANTHONY | ENGAGEMENT

Alexandra and Anthony have known each other since high school, but it wasn’t until years later that these sweethearts truly got to know each other better. After high school Anthony went away to a college out west in Arizona and Alexandra stayed with her east coast roots, going to a school in Connecticut. It wasn’t until the two made their way back to their hometown that they were reintroduced by mutual friends. Then, before they knew it, a year had passed and they started dating!

Almost seven years later Anthony decided to pop the question while both their families were on vacation together in Montauk, New York. The couple and their families had spent a beautiful day out together when Anthony’s brother, Jeff, kept expressing his desire to watch the sunset at the nearby lighthouse *wink wink*. Upon his insistence the group made their way to Montauk lighthouse, but along the way Anthony became more and more quiet. Alexandra was trying to figure out what was bothering him, when Anthony suddenly turned to her, tears brimming his eyes. It was right at that moment that Alexandra knew he was going to propose!

Anthony quickly got down on one knee and the rest is history! Of course she said yes! After a few intimate moments were shared by the couple, their families rushed over to congratulate them. They then finished off their night of celebration at Montauk Yacht Club where more friends of the couple joined them to celebrate the evening on a boat!

This adorable couple will be tying the knot officially in the beautiful setting of The Venetian, in Garfield, New Jersey and we are so honored to be able to capture the whole day for them! Alexandra and Anthony describe their wedding as romantic and elegant, but yet still classic. And boy does this venue fill those shoes. Imagine the inside of a palace ballroom, so swoonworthy!

These beautiful shots we captured for their engagement shoot were nestled in Sara Fitz Photography & Design’s own backyard, as well as all across the lovely greenery of Chesterfield in South Jersey. In addition to the custom SF Wedding Logo that we create for all of our bride’s, Alexandra and Anthony gave us the privilege to design their Save-the-Dates as well! They chose the pictures, we tackled the design (matching their wedding logo perfectly), and aren’t they just gorgeous!

ADVICE FROM THE BRIDE

We both have a major dislike of pictures so we were very anxious about the engagement shoot. The first few minutes were awkward, of course, but once we let our guards down and were just ourselves, it was so much fun!
