The day started with a rainy mix. But even tho it was just about New Year's, Jenna and Slavko's late December wedding could have easily been mistaken for fall or spring because it was 50-degrees and sunny for their afternoon ceremony! This was a very fun, festive off-season wedding. I personally love the holidays and thought the formal winter-themed wedding was super romantic.
On to the pictures!
This is Jenna. She has an amazingly warm, fun personality that puts you in a good mood just by being around her. Love that! Slav had already left for the church, so you'll get to see him in a little bit. He's got the same infectiously warm thing going on, too!
The beautiful roses by Jardinere in Portsmouth.
Jenna's super sweet father escorting her up the aisle.
And here's Slav at the altar with Jenna.
Slav's mom is very emotional. She cried throughout the ceremony, and met her son with tears just after too. Pulls at my heartstrings!
I got to ride on the bridal party bus. Whoop! Whoop!
The reception was at the Wentworth by the Sea in New Castle, NH. We had mere minutes of light once we returned from the ceremony.
The new Mr. and Mrs. Seriously, aren't they a perfectly sweet match?
Sneaking a kiss during dinner (love that 85mm 1.2 lens!).
Oops! The feeding of the cake didn't go exactly as Jenna had planned- Slav surprised her with lots of frosting.
Grandma gettin' down! She took over this dance floor for a bit!
Go Jenna, go Jenna!
Oh, a love a throw-your-head-back laugh!
Slav's groomsmen hoisted him up.
And everyone joined in some very fun Croatian line dances.
This guy was an amazing break dancer!
Circling 'round for the last dance.
And even at the end, Slavko's dear mom is still sobbing. What an emotional day!
I hope you two had a fantastic honeymoon to the Dominican Republic! I'm headed there in May, so you may need to give me some pointers!
Many thanks to Slav's co-worker Toby for recommending me and my work. I photographed Toby's wedding to Anna-Lisa in Cape Cod in 2005 (congratulations on your new baby, guys!).
