Wentworth by the Sea Wedding | Rebecca & Mike

Rebecca and Mike were married at Wentworth by the Sea in New Castle, New Hampshire! It was my first time visiting this historic venue and it was great! A perfect blend of vintage charm, nautical views and garden areas. Rebecca and Mike had a gorgeous day for a wedding too!

I arrived a little early to take a peek around the grounds and then started with Rebecca’s details!

Back in the girls room, hair and make-up was well underway!

For those of you who know Rebecca – she is always laughing and joking:)

When the guys arrived, I met up with them to capture the last bit of them getting ready!

Back in the girls suite – Rebecca had gotten on her dress and it was time to hook all of the gorgeous buttons and put on the finishing touches with the help of her mom and maid-of-honor:)

Once Rebecca was ready, we met Mike outside for their first look…

A few minutes later the wedding party joined us…

Including this adorable little one! She wasn’t too keen on actually joining the girls but we got some cute pictures of us trying to get her in there:)

I also got a few pictures of her alone that are ADORABLE…It just took a little playing and chasing:) That crown is just perfect on her too!

One of Rebecca’s favorite parts of her venue was the dock and boats, so once we had everyone, we headed that way!

We asked a kind boat owner to let us down on the actual dock and he let us in:) Exactly what Rebecca envisioned:)

Love the peek-a-boo lobster sock:)

Ceremony time:)

Their friend, who was doing one of the readings, enlarged the invitation and used it to fill in her reading.  Beautiful and so clever!

After the ceremony, the room was almost ready and the finishing touches were being added!

Cocktail hour was happening just outside their room and was full of happy greetings:)

Then the reception began:)

Robot dance in full effect:)

A change of shoes for the girls:)

Rebecca and Mike, thank you for having me! I wish you both the best (and your pup Murphy too:)

Any advice for future brides/grooms?

No matter how much you plan, something will go wrong on your wedding day and people won’t show up.  Just roll with the punches and let go, it’s your wedding day!

 Funniest memory from your wedding day?

  My new sister in law and brother in law doing the wheel barrel around the dance floor.

 If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

 Not a thing!

We will be going on a 7-day cruise to the Greek Islands and Montenegro that leaves out of Venice, Italy.   We’ll then be going to Dubrovnik, Croatia for a few days afterwards.
