A Scenic Summer Wedding at The Sunset Hill House in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire

It’s hard to believe that at the beginning of 2021 we were in the same location less than a mile from their venue taking their snowy engagement portraits! And now, their gorgeous summer wedding is here on the blog!!

Time flies when you’re havin’ fun, and their wedding day surely did fly by. But, even though it was an end of July wedding, the weather was literally perfect. 66*, sunny, a breeze and y’all, let me just say it was a nice break from the waves of heat we have seemingly had nonstop since!

Their wedding day was definitely centered around scenery in all aspects. Guests were seated at various National Parks for tables, we had the mountains of New Hampshire as a backdrop, and the craziest part is I never even knew that this incredible venue existed just a few hundred feet down the road from where I have photographed so many portrait sessions!

The day was so easy, and I got to meet Kellsie’s family who all flew in from NEBRASKA!!! I don’t know how I didn’t know that is where she is from, but gosh I had a great time learning more about them and where they are from. Every single person in the wedding party was literally the best. The day consisted of Ski Shots, all the girls gathering for their own side photoshoots, the bride doing the worm upon their introductions, epic dancing, lots of laughs and just in general a wicked good time!!!

Steve and Kellsie, thank you for inviting me to celebrate with you all! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from your wedding day!
