Will + Jess | Sunday River Wedding

On the hottest day of the year, Will and Jess headed to the top of a mountain to say “I do”!

Their day began at The Grand Summit Hotel in Newry. As soon as I walked through the door, I felt at home with Jess and her family. After she finished getting ready and stepped into her dress, we took a few quick portraits outside and then headed to their first look! The Sunday River Bridge is just a short drive from the hotel and it was a great spot for such a sweet moment.

The wedding was held at Peak Lodge at Sunday River. Getting to the venue required a ski lift ride, which was a first for me! It was definitely much more fun than the average transportation to a wedding. Will and Jess officially became husband and wife on top of the mountain in front of their closest friends and family.

After dinner, the reception turned into a dance party after moving everyone (including the DJ booth) outside to the patio! You know it was a good wedding when Baby Shark is on the playlist.

Enjoy this look at their wedding day. It was an honor to be there to capture it. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Shibles!
