It all started in high school when they went to the senior prom together. Justine and Anthony not only went on their first date but they actually also met their future wedding photographer! They went to college, in two different states and built their relationship throughout these years, as a strong and solid loving foundation. When it was time to propose, Anthony asked the same photographer from that first date at prom, to photo-document the event. Hiding in the dunes on Block Island years later in the summer of 2015, their first moments as an engaged couple was captured!
Anthony and Justine are both originally from Middletown, CT. Their engagement came after 8 years of dating! Justine studied at Salve Regina University and received a degree in education while Anthony studied at the University of Connecticut, majoring in music education. They had always dreamed of a beautiful Newport wedding and decided to make it happen in the summer of 2017. The wedding didn’t have a particular “theme”, just effortless style. On their wedding day, the happy couple rarely left each other’s side and genuinely took in and appreciated the love they were surrounded by.
Today, Justine and Anthony live in Storrs, CT. They both work as teachers in different school systems and also recently purchased a home in Newport and are looking forward to renovating it for a place where they can escape to. Congrats to the happy couple!
