Imagine a summer destination wedding on the New Hampshire shore. Green grass, blue ocean waters, rocky shorelines, sailboats docked nearby. We had all of this and more at Linsey and Chris’ New Hampshire wedding at the beautiful Wentworth by the Sea. We had actually met Linsey and Chris last year when we were photographing Brittany and Bryan’s Newport, RI wedding — Linsey was a bridesmaid in Brittany’s wedding party. Linsey and Chris’ destination wedding day was full of soft summer colors like pastel teal and peach, all set against the gorgeous backdrop of the New Hampshire seashore.
Linsey and her bridesmaids got ready in one of the Marina Suites at Wentworth by the Sea, while Chris and his guys were in the main building of the resort. Chris waited out on the docks overlooking the waterfront for Linsey to join him for their first look and some formal photos — the rocky cliffs and sailboat marina made for the perfect backdrop. We were joined by the rest of the wedding party for some fun and formal photos on the gorgeous green Wentworth by the Sea lawns and gardens.
We moved off-site for Linsey and Chris’ wedding ceremony, followed by some photos with the newlyweds in the classic old New England church where they said their “I do”s. The entire wedding party joined the bride and groom at the beautiful Great Island Commons, a park directly overlooking the ocean below. We got a few more formal photos and headed back to Wentworth by the Sea for the rest of the evening’s celebration.
The bride and groom chose soft colors of peach and white, accented with a few pops of gold and soft candlelight for their wedding reception decor. The resulting vibe was a beautiful mix of classic New England — vintage and historical — with a bit of whimsy and fun thrown in. Above everything else, Linsey and Chris just wanted to enjoy every minute of the day, and to be surrounded by the people they love while celebrating their new life together.
Special thank you’s go out to Linsey and Chris, to Tracy and her team at Inked Events, and to Laura and her team at the beautiful Wentworth by the Sea!
