Caitlin + Dan's Wedding at Searles Castle

Posted by Peter Clayman on Sat, Jul 28, 2018 @ 06:00 PM

 

 

Caitlin and Dan were married on July 13th, with a ceremony at St. Thomas Aquinas in Derry and a reception at Searles Castle in Windham.

We wanted to feature this wedding particularly because the wedding planner who hired us is one of our favorites. Tracy Dapp and her crew from Inked Events are always a treat to work with. We wanted to thank them for making this wedding—and all of the weddings that they’ve worked with us to plan—run so smoothly. Tracy truly excels at helping couples express what matters most to them and we felt like Caitlin and Dan’s love story was captured in all the details of their wedding day. From the stunning florals to the shamrock details on their cupcakes, so much of their wedding day reflected their vision.

Caitlin and Dan’s Searles Castle Wedding

On the day of the wedding, we covered both the bride and groom as they got ready, with second shooter Bruce Preston hanging out with the guys to start the day. We knew that Caitlin and Dan had both worked so hard to prepare for this big day, and the anticipation of the culmination of their story up to that point was palpable. Caitlin looked so excited in all the images leading up to the ceremony.

St. Thomas Aquinas was an amazing backdrop for their ceremony, with its soaring ceilings and stunning stained glass windows. The wedding itself was very traditional, from Caitlin’s grand entrance as her father walked her down the aisle to the receiving line at the end of the ceremony. That’s something that you hardly see anymore, but it was fun to see the bride and groom as they greeted friends and family and celebrated together. After the ceremony, we did portraits with the bride, groom and wedding party.

The reception at the Searles Castle was nothing short of wonderful. From the very moment that Caitlin and Dan were introduced as husband and wife, every moment was filled with joy and smiles.

Dan & Caitlin, we want to with both of you all the best in your new lives together. Thank you for letting us be part of your celebration.

Caitlin + Brett met through online dating but soon realized that they had mutual friends in common!  As a couple, they are very active together: run road races together, play on a rec volleyball team, and take workout classes at the gym. They like to relax at the lake, travel, visit with family and friends.

On St. Patrick’s Day (Caitlin’s favorite holiday), Brett proposed at their home and completely surprised Caitlin! She thought they were going out to celebrate at a local Irish bar, but when she came home he was all dressed up in a suit and a green tie with champagne (and some Guinness) on the table! He got down on one knee and asked Caitlin to spend the rest of her life with him.  Of course she said yes!

Caitlin + Brett  got married on the shores of Newfound Lake and had their reception in the gorgeous barn at the Inn on Newfound Lake.  It was such an honor to share in the day with them.  Here's their Movie Trailer Film!  Enjoy!  {Jaime + Kevin}

Erin + Michael met through two of Erin's good friends. They first met in Lynchburg where Erin was going to school at the time and the rest is history!  As a couple, Erin + Michael have a really awesome core group of friends that they get to hang out with often. They go out to eat at cool places in Roanoke, go to outdoor concerts during the summer and just love to be outside when they can.

When Michael proposed, they had planned on going out and celebrating their 2 year anniversary on August 12th. At the last minute (at least Erin thought it was last minute--but Michael had it all planned) Michael asked if they could go out that Wednesday before which was August 9th. Erin agreed and thought nothing of it. She got off work and he told her that they had reservations for dinner. Erin got ready and they headed out. Michael said they were going to go up to the Mill Mountain Star (a Roanoke Virginia landmark) and halfway up the mountain he said he had a surprise and that she needed to close her eyes. When he told her to open her eyes she didn't see anything and was rather confused. They then walked up to the lookout at the mountain and he said he was going to be right back. A few minutes later his uncle tapped Erin on the shoulder and she said "what are you doing here?" She turned around even more to see her parents standing there.  She then looked up even more and ALL of their family and friends were standing around. Erin's parents stepped aside and Michael took her hand and got down on one knee.  She of course said YES!
 
Erin + Michael got married at the South Church in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire and had their reception at the Portsmouth Harbor Events Center.  It was such an honor to share in the day with them.  Here's their Movie Trailer Film!  Enjoy!  {Jaime, Mike + Zach}

Jamie + Bobby's Wedding

Posted by Peter Clayman on Fri, Jul 20, 2018 @ 06:00 PM

Jamie and Bobby were married on July 7th, with a ceremony and reception at Dell-Lea in Chichester, New Hampshire.

 

Bobby was Jamie’s first ever kiss! Everyone who heard that story thought it was incredibly sweet… even though after that first kiss Jamie ran away. (Everyone was young once.) Still, even after all that time apart—in which Bobby had kids of his own and Jamie pursued a life as a teacher and made some amazing friends—they were able to reconnect three years ago. And this time, no one ran away. Instead, they picked up their romance and ran with it.

Even though it was a hot summer day, we enjoyed being around this beautiful blended family through the excitement before the ceremony and into the wedding and reception. It’s amazing not only to see a love story come together that has been so long in the making but to watch the different sides of their family all come together to celebrate—and eat cupcakes.

 

Dell-Lea has been voted the best wedding venue in New Hampshire. With its stunning mountain views, meticulously landscaped lawns and a perfect ambiance of rustic elegance, it’s not hard to see why. Jamie and Bobby had a beautiful backdrop for their “I do’s.”

 

We were also particularly pleased with the creative wedding photography we captured in that warm, light just before sunset. The light was amazing and framed them just right. We always try to get those perfectly-lit images in those golden, twilight hours. There’s something so special about preserving the first sunset a married couple shares as husband and wife.

 

Jamie & Bobby, thank you for allowing us to be part of your story. We wish you nothing but the best in your lives together with your beautiful family.

Dell Lea Chichester NH wedding

Jamie + Bobby first met when they were teenagers through a mutual friend and Bobby was even Jamie's first kiss. They went their separate ways, making lives of their own and then reconnected three years ago through social media.  As a couple, they like to go hunting and shooting. They also enjoy grabbing dinner with Bobby's three kids.

When Bobby proposed, it was a rainy night in November and they were hanging out at their friend's house. When they were leaving Bobby stopped Jamie at the corner of the garage, got down on one knee, and asked her to marry him.  She of course said yes!
