I can’t count how many times I have listened to Hunter Hayes’ song “Wanted” since I photographed Jen and Eric’s June 19th wedding at Searles Castle in Windham, NH. The second it played for their first dance, I felt myself almost completely lose it, those rare tears welling up in my eyes. The song is great, yes, but I think my emotion was fueled by what I had witnessed throughout the day. Lots of love, laughter, and absolute bliss from a beaming bride, smitten groom, proud family, and passionate guests who tore up the dance floor (little did they know Fenway Park’s very own “The Sausage Guy” would arrive at the end of the night to nourish their souls and bellies!). Eric’s father officiated their ceremony. And it was also the wedding anniversary of both Eric’s parents and Jen’s grandparents. All of that is so remarkably special! So much thought was put into every detail and what resulted was a simply beautiful, elegant wedding. What an amazing first visit to Searles Castle for me; I loved every minute of it! Jen and Eric, thank you so much for allowing Lindsay and I to document it all! Congratulations and big hugs!
