Meredith, NH Barn Wedding: Jen & Ken

On August 16th, 2014, I witnessed and photographed a very special day.  Jen married Ken on her parent’s property in Meredith, New Hampshire.  Surrounded by the love of their family, the entire day was very intimate and casual, but one of the most memorable weddings I’ve seen.  Jen greeted me in the driveway with smiles and right away, I felt like part of the family.  Ken and Jen opted for a first look moment in front of the horse barn on the property.  As Ken finalized last minute touches on the details outside, I photographed Jen slipping into her beautiful dress with her mom, LuAnn, and sister, Amy, upstairs in her home.  With one final look out the window towards the ceremony site, it was time for Jen to see Ken.  It’s so engaging to photograph first look moments.  The emotion involved is quite powerful.  We were able to spend some time before the ceremony photographing the two of them in different locations around the property.  It was very important that Emi, their dog, felt very involved in this special day so she had her moments in front of the camera.  After, we carted off to some private locations behind the house to finish portraits.  I love this time.  It’s a wonderful, quiet opportunity for the couple to be alone and reflect on themselves.  The ceremony provided laughter and tears, as it too, was very special.  After they sealed it with a kiss, Emi walked Jen and Ken back down the aisle and congratulated them as dogs know best.  Dinner followed under the tent outside with a proper lobster bake.  I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed it!  Music played, a first dance was had, the sun was setting, everyone was happy…it was perfect.  The night ended with a proper sparkler send off by the barn.  Thank you Jen and Ken.  I will always remember your wedding day and how wonderful your entire family is.  Enjoy!
