A Hanover Inn Wedding – Jill & Nick

Jill and Nick were married this past August in Hanover, NH. They celebrated an amazing day at the Hanover Inn, right in the center of the Dartmouth College campus. This is a special place for these two, so it made a perfect location for their wedding.

For Jessica and I, the day began as Jill and Nick got ready for their day. The girls were busy with hair and make-up, while the guys had a few extra minutes to pop into the bar next door to toast the upcoming nuptials before heading to the church. Following the ceremony everyone headed over to the campus green, across the street from the Inn, for some large group photos. To me, this pretty much encompassed the entire day in a nutshell… inclusive. While many guests, including Nick’s family, traveled from across the country to be in Hanover, everything about this day felt inclusive. Maybe it’s the community feel of being on campus, but I think it’s more these two wonderful people!

We were able to spend some time around the green and surrounding buildings taking portraits and laughing — lots of laughing — before heading back to the Inn to join cocktail hour. In the dining room, the band was tuning up and just about ready to kick off the festivities. While the dancing is always the exciting part, the speeches and formal dances are my favorite. Jill’s dad passed a literal baton to Nick, which was hysterical, and great speeches were given by Jill and Nick’s siblings too. Much dancing ensued, and we wrapped up the day with a few nighttime portraits out front. It’s always a pleasure to be back in Hanover, and especially so when it’s time spent with such amazing families. Below are some of my favorite moments from their day…

Thank you Jill and Nick for having me along to document your wedding day. And a huge thanks to Jessica Arnold for shooting with me. Great working by the following:
