Jenna & Josh

A Classy Wedding at Owl’s Nest Resort in Thornton, New Hampshire

I am SO excited that Jenna and Josh’s wedding day is on the blog!! They hosted a classy and elegant wedding at Owl’s Nest, one of my favorite venues in the mountains area of the state, and everything came together so perfectly!!

Though we didn’t have the brightest orange and red foliage like we had for their engagement portraits last fall, we did have some beautiful mountain views! Josh and Jenna chose a golf course for their wedding day, which makes ALL the sense since Josh is heavily involved in the golf world out in Detroit currently!

Though it was an overcast day, I am obsessed with how beautiful their portraits came out. Their friends and family were literally so much fun and they even brought their sweet puppers, Zoey and Lily, with them from Michigan so they could walk down the aisle!!!

The last time I saw Josh and Jenna, they had their sweet pup, Lainey, who unfortunately passed away before their wedding. They made sure that Lainey’s memory was honored during their big day by donating to the organization, Second City Canine Rescue, where they adopted Lainey from, giving her a second chance at life!! Though their sweet girl wasn’t there physically, I know full well she was running around with Lily and Zoey all day in spirit ❤️

Their day came and went by so fast. I feel like a broken record with how often I say that, but I genuinely am SO sad that it’s already over!!! 

Jenna & Josh — thank you so very much for having me play my part in this journey for you!!! I hope you enjoy my favorites from your day, and truly hope I get to see you again soon! (I can feel Michigan calling me 😉)
