Seacoast Sceince Center NH Wedding // S+W
I knew Shannon, Will and I would get along amazing because they were super excited to meet me for taco’s at my favorite place in Kittery – Loco’s. Fast forward a few months later to July their wedding day was nothing short of perfection. The moment me and Hannah saw her beautiful BHLDN dress a huge smile came across both of our faces and was permanently their for the entire wedding. The day started out rainy, but they were still willing to do their first look at the beautiful floral gardens at Prescott Park in downtown Portsmouth, NH. Thankfully, I always keep an umbrella (or 4) in my car when my couples are willing to step out in the rain for some photos (which I always highly encourage!) When we got to the Seacoast Science center it was still slightly raining but we had about and a half to do some family portraits and just when we had all accepted that the sun wasn’t going to make an appearance today – the skies cleared and we were able to have the ceremony outside over looking the Atlantic Ocean – this also made for some super cool portraits right after the ceremony! The skies were dark because of the clouds but the sun shining on Shannon and Will made it look like we carried lit them with artificial lights.
I loved all their wedding details especially Shannon’s bouquet filled with peonies, eucalyptus and other greens – she also included a tag from their dog Abby who had just recently passed away. Their drift wood and hand made wooden box center pieces filled with moss, succulents, and florals matched the venue’s seaside setting so well! Will works for the local fire department and as soon as I saw them light a bon fire I knew I had to get a picture of the firemen with the fire but also create an epic photo for Shannon and Will by the fire as well!
Shannon and Will – thank you so much for trusting me to capture your day and for not judging me too much when I asked you to put on animal masks haha!
