Sweet Berry Farm Engagement: Chanel and Joshua


It was the perfect fall afternoon spent at Sweet Berry Farm, in Middletown, RI, capturing Chanel and Joshua’s sweet season of engagement. They wanted to make their session extra special so they had Redbone Events red, vintage truck at the session. It was so much fun incorporating it into their engagement session and it brought such a unique feel to it. Getting to ride the back of the truck together was a highlight for sure! Between the fall-colored florals, the apple orchard, and Christmas trees, there were so many beautiful elements to the grounds at the farm. Chanel looked absolutely stunning, and just seeing the two of them interact together was so cute.

Chanel and Josh first met at a karaoke bar when they were both there hanging out with some friends. She was there with some of her girlfriends and him with some of the guys from the fire department. After that night, the rest was history, and they have been together ever since August 2009. They went to Briggs corner Restaurant for their first date and they are big on making sure they consistently keep up with their date nights!

Joshua finally proposed on Christmas Day of 2019 in front of their closest family. Chanel was so surprised and shocked when it was all happening. They were both nervous and happy all at the same time, yet beyond ecstatic! There were many were tears of joy and a sweet celebration with everyone! These two truly enjoy the simple life together of walking their dogs, going out to eat, and hanging out with their family and friends. They cannot wait to continue to grow and build a future together.

Chanel and Josh are so excited about their beautiful wedding day next year at the Newport Vineyards! It just so happens to be right near the Sweet Berry Farm. Their wedding ceremony is going to be absolutely amazing, including cultural aspects that are special to them. They will be surrounded by their closest family and friends and it will be an amazing day filled with so much love and emotion. This will be a celebration they will never forget and I cannot wait!

Just absolutely stunning!
