Kerri & Josh | Classic NH Barn Wedding

You may remember Kerri and Josh from their engagement session this past winter. The bride and groom were married at the New London Historical Society over Labor Day Weekend. It was one of the most beautiful and personal weddings I've witnessed. The happy couple could not have had a more perfect New England day, with sunny, blue skies, and late summer warmth. Kerri planned every detail with personal touches, making most of the beautiful decor by hand and putting thought into every small decision along the way. It did not go unnoticed and was deeply appreciated by her wedding party, her guests, and her vendors. 

When both Kerri and Josh referenced "Planet of the Apes" during their vows, which they saw on their first date, they had everyone laughing. They also shared many tears as they touched on all the happy moments throughout their relationship and the love they promised to share for the rest of their lives. Even I was sobbing behind my camera! 

Things got wild during the reception! There was a conga line, a handle of fireball being passed around the dance floor, and the mother of the groom cutting a bridesmaid's dress in half! Needless to say, this was a very memorable affair start to finish. Congrats to my lifelong friend, Kerri, and her new husband, Josh, on the wonderful start of their marriage!

Amanda & Aaron | New Hampshire Labor Day Weekend Wedding

On September 3, 2016, Amanda and Aaron shared vows that had been over ten years in the making! They have been writing their love story for over a decade. Together, they celebrated with an intimate ceremony at Amanda's aunt's lake house with family and close friends. 

My favorite part of the day was hearing Maid of Honor, the bride's sister, Sara, share stories of their childhood. She talked about everything from Troll dolls to literally drawing a line down the center of their bedroom declaring which side belonged to each of them! Most importantly, during Sara's speech, she spoke about the match her sister, who grew up to be her best friend, had found in Aaron. It was so touching getting to witness all the joy and love between these two women, the bride and groom, and both their families in coming together.
