Saturday marked the true kick off to my wedding season. It was a stunningly beautiful day with blue skies, bright sun and a happy couple walking down the isle. My awesome assistant, Lindsey was with me and we started this wedding season with a bang. The first time I met with Lauren & Matt I instantly felt a connection. Their smiles told me in the first few seconds that not only were we going to be friends but that this was going to be a fun wedding. Living in Mass and planning a wedding in Jackson, NH isn't easy. We tried to fit in a quick engagement session on the thursday before the wedding but with so much to once they were here in town we decided to do a post wedding shoot another time. They had a few requests for photo locations (Jackson Falls & the covered bridge) which sounded great to me!
The afternoon started at the Whitney's Inn with Lauren getting her hair and make-up done by one of her maids of honor. Who, by the way, did a STUNNING job!
Just look at this girl... Lauren you are beautiful.
Lauren had beautiful spring flowers done by Dutch Bloemen Winkel. Carrie even included a butterfly which has a sentimental value to Lauren. The Jackson Community Church was the perfect location for this fun couple, with its traditional New England Charm and the always charming and funny Rev. Pojen Lee.
I think Lauren was pretty excited when she saw Matt standing at the alter waiting for her, don't ya think?
Ringing the bell to let the world know that they are Man and Wife!!! Lauren was all smiles.
Some of the most beautiful bridesmaids I've ever seen.
Their 'get away' car was a classic t-bird.
After the ceremony we headed over to the covered bridge for a few group photos.
On the way back to The Whitney's Inn for the reception we stopped at Jackson Falls. The bugs were horrible so we made it a quick stop but these images were so worth the bug bites!
A few adirondack chair shots were a must!
I have never seen a couple this relaxed on their wedding day. It was so nice to see them enjoying every minute!
The Shovel Handle Pub at The Whitney's Inn was decorated with greens, pinks and oranges.
These are probably the best dancing images I've ever taken! The light and the couple were perfect!
I had so much fun with Lauren & Matt on their wedding day. This was the perfect way to start my wedding season. I was reminded how truly lucky I am to be a part of the happiest day of peoples lives. A day full of smiles, laughter and love. Who could ask for anything more?
