Nina & Josh

A Classy & Colorful Summer Wedding at The Bedford Village Inn in Bedford, New Hampshire

I was very excited and anxious for the arrival of Nina and Josh’s wedding day, because from the moment I first met the last summer for their engagement portraits, I just knew their big day would be so sweet! And I was not wrong!!

These two are some of the most genuine and thoughtful people I have ever met. Each and every time I would connect with Nina, she just always had a sunny and upbeat tone and it carried throughout the entire wedding day. The way her and Josh connect is so beautiful and one moment that I really loved specifically was when Josh hugged her after their first kiss at the alter. And just the way I caught him looking at her throughout the night, and even the way she looked at him… oh gosh it really got me in the feels!!

The theme of their day was definitely summer elegance and it was so classy! From the details, the florals, the antique car… it all was the most perfect recipe and exactly what I pictured!! Nina rocked a vintage type hair-do and the guys looked incredible in their black suits!

And I honestly cannot forget to give a special shoutout to Father Jerome!! He was the life of the party… from the ceremony, to his amazing speech, and then hitting the dance floor. I literally had the best time seeing him bring so much laughter to everyone!! Peep the picture of him dancing towards the camera in their gallery 😂

Josh and Nina, thank you so much for having me be part of this journey with you. I am so thankful to know to very wholesome people, and cannot wait to see where life takes you!!!
