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.
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!
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.
