Believe it or not, this adorable, loving, happy couple met on a blind date. They were set up by their two best friends five years ago and Jenna says "it was a perfect match from the beginning." Josh proposed to Jenna one Sunday morning in a park near their home with their bulldog, Stewie, in tow. Jenna obviously said yes, and they were married at The Wentworth Inn in Jackson, New Hampshire early this fall.
It was a gorgeous day in the White Mountains and I started by photographing Jenna getting ready in her suite at the Inn. Jenna and her bridesmaids all wore matching monogrammed silk bathrobes while getting ready. Before heading out to the ceremony, Jenna and her Dad had a first look. Frank had on the biggest smile in the world when he saw his beautiful daughter for the first time.
The Wentworth Inn has a beautiful outdoor space for the ceremony. Jenna and her Dad couldn't contain themselves when they started down the aisle. Jenna and Josh were married by their friend. He interviewed Jenna and Josh's parents and siblings asking them when they knew they wanted to "marry" Jenna and then included those responses in the ceremony. It was a brilliant idea!
After the ceremony, I spent some time with the couple and their wedding party to create some fun portraits. Jenna didn't hesitate to climb down onto the rocks near the water in her wedding dress and high heels!
The stone dog on the top left is in honor of their dog, Stewie, who couldn't attend the wedding. He greeted guests as they walked into the reception. Jenna and Josh's party was full of laughter and life, including vibrant speeches with the crowd cheering the speakers on, lots of dancing and even Jenna doing a few singing numbers!
Congratulations Jenna and Josh! Wishing you many years of happiness together!
