As promised, here are the rest of Jesse + Katie’s wedding highlights! If you attended their wedding, make sure to check out the full gallery through the website on the cards we gave out that night!
Last week we shared all the details from their big day, and today we share the events of the day! There is so much jam-packed in this post, but I promise you’ll want to stick around all the way to the end. We pulled out just a few of our favorite highlights from each part of the day.
Everything was held at The Woman’s Club of Portsmouth— a really fantastic venue that has both the sophisticated and the rustic charm feel. The staff seems nice, and it’s always helpful when you’re not having to travel between venues with a bridal party and all your guests! First looks have become one of my very favorite things! The sweet moments between the bride and groom, the nerves that are calmed instantly, and the ability to get formal pictures out of the way before guests arrive are all big wins! After their ceremony we took a few more pictures since it was gorgeous sunset lighting, but honestly, they ended up starting the reception a little early which made the guests very happy! That’s one big thing I wish we’d done at our wedding– gotten the pictures done beforehand and arrived at the reception right after our guests– it totally avoids that awkward waiting time where everyone is wondering where the bride and groom are! There is so little time at the reception anyway, so might as well maximize it! Jesse’s dad officiated the wedding and it was so touching! He kept getting misty-eyed. It was precious. And now time for those gorgeous sunset portraits! Prepare yourselves– these guys totally rocked it and we got a lot of photos done in a small amount of time.
