The forecast was for snow. The day started with sun in the morning, the clouds rolled in around 3pm and the snow started to fall just before sunset. It was the perfect day for a New England winter wedding. Addie (my second shooter for the day) and I met up with Chelsea & Tyler at Whitney's Inn in Jackson NH.
I love that the boys were in matching argil sweaters... and with purple no less. I have no idea why but purple is a fantastic winter wedding color.
Tyler's sister was his "best girl". I love it when couples break with tradition a little to include the people that are most important to them.
Chelsea wore a Maggie Sottero gown that looked stunning with her Aldo boots.
Chelsea, you are one of the most photogenic people I've ever know.
There are so many beautiful spots at Whitney's Inn, this window light was perfect!!!! You can see why it is one of my favorite places to shoot a wedding.
The Ceremony was held at the Jackson Community Church. Terry at Gorham House Florist did a fantastic job with Chelsea's flowers.
Husband and wife.
This might be my favorite image of the day.
As we headed back to the Shovel Handle Pub for the reception the snow began to fall. Lightly at first but within an hour there were 2+ inches on the ground and we were in the middle of a full blown nor'easter.
Years ago Chelsea decided to run away from home and hung a small sign on the mail box. Her parents kept this sign for years and decided to blow it up and add a "SOLD" to it for everyone to see.
The White Mountain Cupcakery did a fantastic job with the desserts! For those of you who have no idea what the little chocolate balls on sticks are... well let me tell you they are heaven on a stick! They take cupcakes and frosting and mix it all in a blender then dip balls of it into chocolate.... told ya- H-E-A-V-E-N!
I love the warm, cozy feel of the pub- you'd never know it was a crazy blizzard outside.
That is until you walk outside to take some photos. These guys were total troopers and stood out in the cold with falling snow allowing us to grab some great shots.
Back inside the party began.
A few small tears during the toast.
I think this last photo is the perfect close to a fabulous wedding. While Addie was digging out the car I grabbed one last shot of the Pub, all lit up in the snow. Thank you Chelsea & Tyler for allowing Addie and I to capture your beautiful winter wedding!!!!
