Justina and Michael tied the knot last weekend with a beautiful summer wedding at the Three Chimneys Inn in Durham, NH. The weather was absolutely beautiful, and I could feel the excitement in the air from the moment I arrived. We started off the day with some detail shots and getting ready photos of Justina and her girls. They all had matching hoodies to get ready in, and when it came time to change into their dresses, the tears started rolling! Justina even shared a first look with her dad, which was SO cute. From there, we went down to the nearby walking bridge for their first look. Michael had been itching to see his beautiful bride all day, and his reaction was priceless! After they shared a private moment together, we moved on to some portraits of the two of them and the whole bridal party.
The ceremony started off with a bang when Michael rolled up in a Ferrari (seriously!), and turned sweet when he shed a few tears seeing Justina come down the aisle. They shared a prayer, planted a love tree, and sealed it all with a kiss. We took a few more “just married!” portraits in the glowy light, along with photos of the whole family, before heading over to the reception.
Justina and Michael had cute cartoons made of them, which they used on their programs, their guest book, and even the top of their cake! They even had a small Deadpool peeking out from underneath their cake, which made everyone crack up. We laughed even harder at Michael’s best man’s toast, when he revealed that Michael thought that Justina’s name was “Justifina” at the very beginning of their relationship. Laughter quickly turned to tears during the parent dances when Michael surprised Justina’s mom with a dance. All around, it was just a sweet and fun day!
Here are some of my favorite images from the day…

Justina and Michael, your love for each other is so tangible, and I feel so blessed that I was able to capture it. Thank you for being so sweet, kind, and genuine, and for providing such a welcoming and fun wedding to be a part of! It is definitely one for the books ❤️
