A Connecticut Engagement Session by Katie Slater Photography

We are such saps when it comes to engagement stories, and Arianne and Bennett’s instantly made us smile! Enjoy the sweet proposal and beautiful photos captured by Katie Slater Photography.

From the bride-to-be, Arianne,

Bennett and I had been together for a few years before I started dropping hints that I thought we should get married. Bennett’s response to my nagging would always be…”that is part of the ten year plan,” always followed with a grin. The Oceanhouse in Watchill, RI had a long standing history in Bennett’s family. I had the opprotunity to go there for Bennett’s father’s surprise 60th Birthday party and fell in love. It not only has amazing views of the water as you walk it’s wrap around porch, but the decor and feel is full of class and elegance. Not to mention amazing food, which Bennett and I love! So Bennett knew this place was special for him and I and planned to propose there. Little did I know last November, that when he told me we were going to the Oceanhouse for business (he even had his boss contact me to let me know he was running late), he was planning a night I will never forget. As I was finishing getting ready (and running late as usual), our favorite champagne got delivered. When I was finally ready, we raised a glass (toasting to his promotion for work). Bennett then said, “actually no one else is coming.” I was confused and didn’t know what to think. He followed quickly with, “your ten year plan is over.” I knew exactly what that meant and started crying and hugging him. He then goes “well can I get on one knee now?” He did, and then I cried some more! Some of Bennett’s humor and my sappiness.
