My summer wedding season has been busy, but so incredibly fulfilling! I have spent almost every weekend this summer photographing beautiful couples tying the knot at gorgeous New England area venues. My most recent wedding featuring the lovely couple, Lauren and Kyle, was no exception! Their modern + rustic wedding at The Barn on Bull Meadow was a dream! This stunning Concord, NH wedding venue is a secluded venue sitting on 34 acres with scenic landscapes and beautiful outdoor and indoor spaces.
Before the wedding day festivities, I was in the bridal suite capturing the gorgeous bride and her bridesmaids getting ready in their matching robes! The bride incorporated her late grandmother’s wedding band by tying it around her wedding bouquet. The bridesmaids’ sage green dresses and classic white flower bouquets mixed with pops of greenery was the perfect addition to the classic and elegant decor.
Before the wedding ceremony began, Lauren and Kyle shared a first look outside the wedding venue. It was an emotional first look and ceremony as Kyle teared up during both, which was incredibly sweet and heartwarming. Lauren also had a first look with dad too before the bride and groom came back together with their wedding party for some photos in front of the modern wooden barn.
Modern + Rustic Wedding
The couple held their wedding ceremony outside under a rustic wooden arch that featured amazing meadow views. After their joyful and beautiful wedding ceremony the newlyweds and their wedding guests headed inside for the cocktail hour and reception. The couple had signature cocktails honoring their two dogs who could not be there to join in on the fun. I love when couples find fun ways to include their fur babies in their special day!
After introductions, the couple went into their first dance which included a lift! Next up were a few heartfelt toasts by the Maid of Honor, the Best Man, who is also the groom’s brother, the bride’s brother, and the bride’s dad. Each toast mentioned what a perfect match Lauren and Kyle are, how they both share the same determination & zest for life, and how they both show kindness and loyalty towards others. The toasts were incredibly sweet and personal and a true testament to Lauren + Kyle’s relationship.
The Barn on Bull Meadow Wedding Portraits
After a buffet dinner, I snuck the newlyweds outside for my favorite time of day – golden hour! The sun did not disappoint! Their wedding portraits featured the most gorgeous lighting that paired wonderfully with idyllic scenery of the sweeping meadows. Lauren and Kyle were also beaming! Their joy and love for one another, coupled with the excitement of the day was evident in their photos.
Once we were done exploring, we headed back to reception for the remaining formalities. Before heading out on the dance floor, the newlyweds cut their wedding cake, where they both, without hesitation, smashed the cake in each other’s faces! It was the best! After cleaning up, Lauren and Kyle shared dances with their parents, then spent the rest of the evening celebrating with their guests out on the dance floor.
Lauren + Kyle, it was such an honor to be a part of your joyous wedding day and capture these wonderful memories. I agree with everyone at your wedding who said you two were a perfect match! Congratulations!
