New Hampshire Wedding Photographer at Wentworth by the Sea

As a New Hampshire wedding photographer duo, we were thrilled to hear from M + F when they first reached out to us about their Wentworth by the Sea wedding. Documenting weddings close to home when we’re typically traveling all over New England is such a treat! 

We kicked off our 2022 wedding season at this beautiful historic hotel just outside of Portsmouth, NH. According to Historic Hotels Wentworth by the Sea has stood as a beacon of elegance among the grand Portsmouth, New Hampshire - since 1874! Wow! Can you imagine all the history in one place? If only those walls could talk, right? 

M & F met in high school and fate would later bring them both to live in California, where they currently still reside. Coming back to NH for their wedding felt like a sweet treat as both have so many family members as well as so much history here. 

We arrived the morning of the wedding as they were both getting ready. We love the anticipation of it all in the morning and all the feels right before walking down the aisle. M & F chose not to do a first look, so as you can imagine, the butterflies were real! Both M & F had adjacent suites, which was great for us as photographers to be able to travel between rooms and document all the getting ready fun. 

They exchanged vows in an open-air ceremony beautifully decorated with florals from Jardiniere Flowers. Immediately following the ceremony the wedding party and immediate family hung out by “the ship”, a cute little gazebo where they were able to help themselves to drinks and some bites before starting family and wedding party photos. 

Following photos and cocktail hour, we all headed to the ballroom for a night of delicious dinner, emotional speeches, and dancing! Every single detail in the reception was so well thought out and planned by our couple. Each table was uniquely decorated and it all came together so nicely with the ambiance of the ballroom. 

As New Hampshire wedding photographers, it was a dream to start our season right here. This beautiful sunny day in mid-May couldn’t have been more perfect. We loved working with M & F and their vendors. It was so incredible to see everyone work to bring this couple’s vision to life. We love going back to this gallery and reminiscing on this beautiful day! Congrats M & F!
