We L-O-V-E capturing wedding memories in Jackson, NH!!! This was our first wedding at Whitney's Inn and The Shovel Handle Pub. Jackson is such a great town for weddings! We had been looking forward to checking out a new wedding venue in one of our favorite NH towns! We also had a great time at Katie and Sean's engagement session, so we were looking forward to seeing them again on their big day!
We started the day capturing photos of the details of this amazing venue. We photographed Sean and his groomsmen getting ready and then moved onto the bridal suite to photograph Katie and her girls. We shared some great laughs with the bride and bridesmaids before heading out to photograph the ceremony. The ceremony was beautiful and could have only been improved if the bugs had stayed away. Who invited them to the ceremony anyway??? Once Katie and Sean sealed the deal with the kiss (or several kisses) we moved over to The Shovel Handle Pub to use the barn as a great backdrop for family formals and wedding party formals. The groomsmen nearly killed Sean while jumping off the side of the barn. I actually did not get a shot of them landing on Sean because I was more concerned that Sean was ok. There were no grooms injured in the filming of this moment!
Katie and Sean began their reception with their first dance. We laughed hard at some very good wedding toasts! DJ Sean Naughton got the party started and had the dance floor packed the rest of the night! Please check out the photos below for more tidbits about this great day.

Here comes the cuteness!!!
I'm usually very focused with my eye buried in my camera during the ceremony. I must have been so focused on getting the shot of Katie's father giving her away that I did not see the money exchange during the hand shake! The dollar amount is undisclosed! :-)
This ring bearer was adorable! After he gave the rings to Katie and Sean, he kept showing them that the ring box was empty.
Hey, wait a minute! I thought that Sean was the man of the hour? I think this little man stole the show with the cute flower girls!
Such a sweet moment shared between Katie and her Grandmother!
So, what you don't see in this picture are the two groomsmen who landed on Sean once they hit the ground! Thank God for no injuries!
Sisters sharing a good laugh!
It took a little convincing, but Sean and his brother finally gave their dad a kiss. Who says you are too old to kiss your dad?
Isn't this a beautiful bouquet? Okay, maybe just to a photographer! Backstory: Sarah was bustling Katie's dress and Katie offered to hold one of our lenses. I, of course, had to grab a fun shot!
The Shovel Handle Pub is located in a very cool, multi-level barn!
Katie & Sean,
Your wedding was amazing! We had so much fun with you, your friends and your family. Thank you again for choosing us for your special day! May God bless your marriage Forever & Always!
Matt & Sarah
