Nicole & David ~ Castle In The Clouds ~ Wedding Photography

  
  
  
  

Nicole & David were married at one of the most scenic places in New England, Castle In The Clouds, Moultonboro, NH.

This wedding was the second that we have done for the brides family as last year Nicole's sister Alicia was married and we photographed the big day :)  This wedding had a little of everything that included nice details (gingerbread cookies from the The Yum Yum Shop) to a horse and carriage to a first dance taking place on the patio overlooking a scenic vista.

We started to photograph bridal preparations at the Castle's intimate bridal suite.  We photographed many of the details that inluded the dress.  We later caught up with David getting ready to walk with his two sons up a short path that lead to the ceremony area.

The ceremony was sweet that included custom vows that Nicole and David read to each other.

Before everyone made their way into reception we were able to get some images of how the tables were set up with the flowers...all very beautiful:

After everyone settled in for a great meal catered by Hart's Turkey Farm there were speeches and toasts and dancing throughout the night. Rodyan and crew did a great job keeping things organized and we wish Nicole and David all the love and happiness that can have!

Alyson's Orchard Wedding VideographerKatie + Jimmy got married at one of our all time favorite venues - Alyson's Orchard in Walpole, New Hampshire.  It's such a beautiful spot, nestled in the hills of western NH and with endless photo opportunities and multiple ceremony sites to chose from, how could you not love it??!?!?  Katie + Jimmy picked Anne Marie's Point for their ceremony site and were able to just squeeze it in rain free while some pretty intense thunder + lightning storms surrounded them.  It was such a fun day with wonderful details, and their first dance was my absolute favorite.  Katie + Jimmy, thank you for letting me share in your day!  Enjoy the Sneak Peek.

Kerriann & Nick ~ Black Swan Country Club ~ Wedding Photography

  
  
  
  

Kerriann & Nick were married at one of the prettiest country clubs around The Black Swan Country Club, Georgetown, MA.  Although the venue was pretty inside and out the weather was...not so much. So what these pictures can show you is that even when the weather gives you lemons...there is lemonade to be had.

bride and groom

We started out photographing bridal preparations that included details from the dress, shoes and jewlery.  We were also able to get images of hair and make up done which I think is so important when it comes to the aspect of story telling through pictures.

Before everyone left for the venue Kerriann, her parents and bridal party all had a moment while her dad saw the beautiful bride in her dress for the first time.

Kerriann and her parents took a Rolls Royce from Black Tie Limo Services and had one of the best drivers I have ever known Mark...he is amazing and so accomodating.  Everyone was wisked into formation to start the ceremony as the rain drops began to fall.

Although it was beginning to rain during the ceremony that did not put a damper on some very sweet "I do's"

After the ceremony we raced to get a couple of images taken with Kerriann and Nick but the rain was coming down too quickly and we needed to retreat.  Not to worry when you have your wedding at the Black Swan Country Club...they have a very convenient overhang that keeps you dry and we were able to get the proper outdoor looking shots to keep everyone happy.  Thank goodness they had that...here are a few shots from the session.

Before reception started we were also able to get creative on a few indoor shots as well :)

The reception was decorated beautifully and uplighting was a nice added touch.

The reception began with introductions along with the first dance and parent dances.  There were some heartfelt speeches, cake cutting and DJ Kevin Cain had them dancing throughout the night. We also want to give Caryl a huge shout out.  She is the Senior Wedding Planner for the Black Swan and she did a great job managing all aspects of the day.  We wish Kerriann & Nick all the happiness in the world!!

It was such an amazing day and I feel so honored to have been there to capture it all for them on video.  Enjoy the Sneak Peek.  Much love!

Alayna + Paul | NH Summer Wedding Video | Castle In The Clouds

  
  
  
  

Castle In The CloudsAlayna and Paul got married at the beautiful and historic Castle in The Clouds in Moultonboro, New Hampshire on gorgeous August day.  Just like we are not a cookie-cutter videography studio, they did not have a "cookie-cutter" wedding! 

They had a rainbow theme throughout, including the wedding party which was very cool.  This, along with their other decorations, added a very personal touch to their day.  One of my favorites was how they asked everyone to throw pennies into the wishing pond. 

Alayna + Paul were full of goofiness and just a joy to be around on their special day.  Their hand-written vows were pretty awesome too.  Thanks so much for letting us share in your special day and capturing it on video for you!

Mikelle & Kyle - Dexter's Inn Sunapee, NH - Wedding Photography

  
  
  
  

Mikelle & Kyle were married at one of the most scenic venues we have been to in a while Dexter's Inn, Sunapee, NH.  It was also a crazy weather day in which it started out hot and muggy then ended with some pretty sizable thunderstorms.

bride and groom

This place had it all from spacious rooms and cabins for bridal preparation to an awesome ceremony location with amazing views of the mountains and a tent to host the reception.

wedding ceremony

The original plan was for Mikelle & Kyle to see each other for the first time as Mikelle walked down the isle, but after reflecting on the weather situaiton (and realizing there was a 75% chance of rain at the start of the ceremony) the decision was made to do a first reveal and get the pictures done before the rain came.  It would later turn out to be a great decision.

So we started with bridal preparations and getting detail shots of the dress, shoes, jewlery and it lead to some nice candid moments as things were unfolding.

The first reveal was done close to the ceremony spot for some great background pics.  Even though it was bright and sunny that would later change quickly.

Here are some of the images we took as we walked around the grounds.  One of the places we were able to get some amazing images was by this little church located on the property in the woods a little bit.

The rain held off and the ceremony was intimate and featured some readings along with a winebox ceremony.  This is where the bride and groom write notes to each other ahead of the ceremony and seal them with a bottle of wine to be opened 1 year later (some couples can go even further such as 5 years)

We were able to get all the family photos and bridal photos in just ahead of the reception...then the heavens opened up.

The reception included the introductions, first dance, toasts, cake cutting and parent dances.  Mikelle and Kyle commissioned artist Alison Vernon to paint a scene within the first dance which was such a neat idea and I highly recommend it.  Beyond that Sean Reardon from Get Down Tonight Entertainment had everyone dancing throughout the day and the head of Dexter's Inn, John did a great job keeping things organized throughout the day.  We wish Mikelle and Kyle all the best and happiness they can have as a married couple!

Tammy & Chris - Common Man Inn - Wedding Photography

  
  
  
  

Tammy & Chris were married on a humid Sunday at a unique venue in Plymouth, NH called The Common Man Inn.  The reason why I say its unique is that one of the ceremony location options is in an actual greenhouse which gave it a really nice intimate feel for the ceremony.  There are also miles of railroad tracks which make for some great backdrop for pictures.

bride and groom

We started off by photographing bridal preparations.  During this time we usually get detail shots of the dress, shoes, jewlery which we did, but there was one twist.  Tammy is a big time runner who has done marathons and half marathons and in fact Tammy and I ran the Dopey Challange at Disney last January which was a 48.6 mile race over 4 days (in case your curious its a 5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon).  So Tammy's shoes were actually custom running shoes that said "run disney"on the side.

So everyone got ready in a building they call cabin in the woods which all the bridesmaids and the adorable flower girl got ready.  At the very end of the preperation Tammy walked downstairs and we had her dad close his eyes until she reached the bottom of the stairs for some very sweet reactions.

One of the greatest things we love to capture is the grooms look as he sees his bride walking down the isle for the first time, but in this case the grooms mom had a pretty solid look as well! The ceremony was traditional with one extra part in which Tammy & Chris exchanged roses and then gave them to their mothers :)

After the ceremony the pictures flowed and here are some of what we were able to get.

The reception featured introductions, first dance, parent dances, cake cutting (cake was fromOoo La La Creative Cakes) and dancing...Megan from Main Event Entertainment had everyone dancing all night long and they provided the photo booth as well.  Stephanie & Megan from the Inn did a great job in getting everything in order so all in all it was a great day...oh and the rain held off...bonus!  We wish the happy couple all the very best in life!

Ashley + Ryan | Church Landing, Meredith | New Hampshire Wedding Video

  
  
  
  

I can't emphasize enough how important it is to take the time to write your own vows.  They can be as long, or as short as you'd like.  They can be funny, emotional and loving.  They are unique and personal and make your wedding ceremony completely yours.  It certainly helps your wedding video too.  ;-)

Ashley + Ryan got married at the always lovely Church Landing in Meredith, NH.  Just a few details: Ashley arrived by boat (dont' you all want to do that now?!??), they wrote their own vows and had a fantastic choreographed first dance.  Every little detail was perfection and I can't thank Ashley + Ryan enough for allowing me to capture their day.  We wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!  Here's their Sneak Peek.

Stephanie & Pat were married at a venue in which multiple generations of couples have been married, The Harris Pelham Inn, Pelham, NH.

Before arriving at the Inn we started with bridal prepartion of which we did the traditional details of the dress, shoes jewlery, flowers and more.  Pat (our groom) had flowers delivered to Stephanie along with a bag of rolos which happen to be her favorite candy and a note to go along with it.  We also did a first reveal with her dad which turned out to be a touching moment.

Making our way to the Inn Stephanie chose Grace Limousine for transportation and had a nice stretch car to go in.  The weather was good enough for an outdoor ceremony that included of course close friends and family.  Stephanie's uncle officiated over the ceremony which featured hand written vows.

After the ceremony we took some pics of course...here are a few.

As we entered the reception area, time was of the essence.  Literally.  There were clocks on each table along with flowers.  They also gave out coasters with unique designs on them for favors. Other memorable moments included Stephanie doing a choreographed dance with her dad...and Rhonda the senior wedding coordinator at The Harris Pelham had everything running on schedule and did a great job.  We want to wish Stephanie & Pat all the happiness in the world!

Nicole & Naum - Mile Away - Wedding Photography

  
  
  
  

Nicole & Naum were married at a beautiful venue in Milford, NH called The Mile Away.  Not only do they have a great place to get married but they also have a wonderful restaurant to boot :)

bride and groommile-a-way

We started with bridal preparations at the Crowne Plaza, Nashua, NH.  Although Nicole has some family in NH many of the grooms family and friends came in from LA and were experiencing New England for the first time :)  As we were going through doing the details shots of the rings we noticed that Naum had an amazing looking ring made partly out of wood...I have to say that I really liked the look!

After preparation it was of to the Mile Away.  Its a very cool eclectic place with modern facilities and rustic charm...they had all kinds of funky mirrors around and that made for some nice pictures later on.

The ceremony was sweet as the reverend described what each one of them loved about the other. Since the reverend did all the readings it left more time for pictures of the family and our bride and groom. What was refreshing and unique about this wedding is there was no bridal party.

Some of the images we took after the wedding:

As the reception began Nicole and Naum had their first dance which Naum seemed to really take in the moment.  DJ Dave Lynch had everyone dancing away and Sandy from the Mile-A-Way did a great job making sure the day ran smoothly.  We want to wish Nicole & Naum all the happiness now and in the future!
