A Waterville Valley Resort Fall Wedding: Kaitlin & Shawn

As a New Hampshire wedding photographer, I quickly learned that fall in this region makes for some of the most beautiful, idyllic weddings. And this season’s fall weddings were no exception! Warm afternoons and cool evenings, beautiful autumn leaves, and the gorgeous scenery is the perfect combination for any New Hampshire bride.

Kaitlin and Shawn waited over a year to get married because they knew that they wanted to highlight the beautiful autumn season. And it paid off! Their Waterville Valley Resort wedding was am absolute fall dream. The epitome of fall beauty, their romantic wedding day featured bold fall colors, classic New England foliage, and laid-back energy.

The couple met in high school but reconnected years later on a college night out! Before they knew it, they had created a little family! They added two kittens and a pup to their home. Shawn proposed on Christmas, giving Kaitlin personalized ornaments for special moments from their courtship to decorate the tree with. And when she turned around, he was kneeling with a ring!

With such a sweet love story, I knew that Kaitlin and Shawn would have an amazing wedding day. Focused on a rich color palette of burgundy, greenery, and gray, the event was intimate and heartfelt. The colors were the perfect compliment to the backdrop. This Waterville Valley Resort wedding showed off the incredible local landscape (at nearly peak foliage!) with a heartfelt outdoor ceremony.

Kaitlin looked stunning in an off-the-shoulder lace gown—with Shawn as her handsome counterpart in his burgundy-and-black tux. After taking advantage of the lovely property at Waterville Valley for bride and groom portraits, they celebrated with a twinkle-light lit reception full of toasts, excellent food, and teary-eyed dances. Every detail of the day was carefully thought out—from Kaitlin’s elegant bridal ponytail to the VW bus photobooth!

Congratulations to Kaitlin and Shawn! I loved being a part of your wedding day.
