Living and growing up in New Hampshire, I’ve heard of Pat’s Peak a million times! It was the place you went to snowboard when we were in middle school, and up until I met Justine and Andy, I had no idea you could have your wedding there!
Their wedding day was simply gorgeous, and the venue created for a beautiful backdrop of the mountains. For a summer day, it was breezy and comfortable in temperature, and when I first arrived, it was so quiet. Usually I walk in on all the hustle and bustle of getting everything prepped, but everyone and everything seemed so calm. It was refreshing!
I checked in with Justine when I arrived and she is just the sweetest! You could tell the nerves were settling over her, but she had an amazing group of girls to take care of everything. It was so laid back and I was incredibly happy at how smooth everything went from start to finish!!
One of my favorite moments from the entire day was the ceremony. Andy and Justine’s son, Wyatt, is literally a little ham!! For two and half years old, he did amazing!! During the processional he ran up and down the aisle numerous times, putting grins on everyones faces and wrapping himself around his daddy’s leg before jetting off back up the aisle. So full of energy and I absolutely loved it!!
And not only did their son put on the most adorable show for everyone, Justine and Andy were married by their longtime and really good friend, Adam, who did a phenomenal job for his first time officiating!! It’s so special asking someone so close to you to marry you on your wedding day, and though Adam may have been a little nervous, it never showed!
The rest of the day went so easily, and they were surrounded by friends and family from near and far who radiated love and happiness for them, as the three officially united all as Ellis’!
Andy and Justine, thank you so much for having me capture this day for you! Everything turned out beautifully, and I hope this new season of life is just as enjoyable as the journey to get here!
Here are just some of my favorites from your day!
