Whitney and Rob live in the D.C. area but because Whitney’s roots are in Portsmouth, NH, the couple will be tying the knot in this New England town. During a recent holiday visit home, the two had their engagement photos taken while walking around the historic village. Love that Whitney is wearing pearls from Rob’s grandmother. / Images by Leigh Doran of Nadra Photography.
Says Whitney, “We chose Strawbery Banke (a park in which visitors can walk around and see old houses and talk to people dressed up from the 1600-1800s) and the area nearby in Portsmouth, NH, for the engagement photos because it helped us set the classic sea coast New England theme for our save-the-date magnets. We ended up using a photo of us in front of the tugboats, which was really cute! I worked at Strawbery Banke growing up so it was a meaningful location for me and I knew the buildings there reflected the feeling of our wedding.
