today’s love story:
Anna + TJ’s Bedford NH Wedding
and all the magical moments that made it
Anna and TJ’s Bedford NH wedding was one of the loveliest, most joyful wedding days we’ve ever photographed.
Anna’s quite possibly the sweetest human you’ll ever meet. She radiates kindness and warmth and gratitude…and she also has a great sense of style. So she appropriately hired Kelly Golia Events to take care of all of the gorgeous details for her, including the invitation suite by Gus & Ruby Letterpress and the adorable gift bags for guests.
Bedford Village Inn has a beautiful mix of luxury accommodations at The Grand and historic loveliness at the original hotel and tavern. We planned their first look in the Courtyard.
I stepped onto the grass where TJ was waiting for Anna. “Oh no” I said “Anna, the grass is wet. Your dress will get wet” and she said “I’m not worried about it!” and so we let her go. And she ran – she RAN to TJ and her magical private moment with her groom on her wedding day.
They shared promises to one another, along with words of love and commitment for a lifetime, with laughs and tears and hugs and so much love.
This is one of the wildest parts of the day – the forecast essentially looked like a washout (though we know that’s rarely the case), but it really only rained during their ceremony! Once everyone – well mostly everyone – was already safely dry inside St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church, the skies opened up and then cleared up in time for their bubble exit.
Back at their Bedford NH wedding venue, the BVI, we had a blast with the wedding party during portraits. And I still can’t get over how beautiful all of the florals were by Soul Flora Design.
She’s an angel. She makes everyone feel special and interesting and loved like nobody else can. It’s absolutely her super-power, and was echoed throughout the day by everyone. After meeting her parents, it’s very clear where she gets her kindness and warmth.
As guests arrived and gladly accepted their signature drinks, the bride and groom were missing from the party, along with their closest friends and fellow soccer fans!
That head table though…
The Grand Hall was adorned with so many flowers and twinkly-light stars and candles. Every detail was taken care of and the staff at this Bedford NH wedding venue is top-notch – attentive and helpful. It’s party time!
DJ Joel had the entire place dancing before toasts – like EVERYONE. And everyone seemed happy about it…it was impressive! And I think it says a lot about the people A+T surround themselves with.
There were so many beautiful toasts. I love their sweet moment, as they soak in words from their family and best friends…
This wedding truly felt like a union of two families – there were so many hugs!
