Kelsey + Ryan | Backyard Wedding

 

 

 

Backyard Wedding NH Photography

Kelsey and Ryan were married on June 16th, with a ceremony and reception at a private residence in Mont Vernon, New Hampshire.

I was personally excited for this wedding, as Kelsey went to the University of Maine, which happens to be my alma mater. Having a personal connection like that honestly makes weddings more fun! Ryan went to the University of New England, but he was still fun to photograph too, of course.

Both Ryan and Kelsey have an amazing connection with their friends and family, especially because they met because of those relationships that they hold dear. They made an instant connection at a party with their family and friends, and everyone there could see it. So, as friends do, they encouraged that spark. You can bet everyone at this wedding was excited to see that love story come to fruition! This wedding party lasted late into the evening. A few of their friends even stayed over and pitched tents on the property, so that they could all have a little more time together.

 

Kelsey and Ryan’s Backyard Wedding

The day of the wedding was the first really warm Saturday of the year. New England weather is often unpredictable when it comes to when seasons decide to change. Not only did we get good weather, but also amazing backdrops all over the property. When we arrived to do some “getting ready” shots, we were rewarded with a gorgeous summer shoot. Kelsey and Ryan put in so much work for this backyard DIY wedding. They rebuilt a barn on the property and even had a hand-built arbor. Those details make all the difference in weddings—and they mean even more when you add in that much effort.

Everyone in the wedding looked so happy and relaxed through the afternoon. One of the benefits of a backyard wedding is the rustic feeling of intimacy that it creates. It was a beautiful day for this couple to begin the rest of their lives as husband and wife.

Kelsey & Ryan, we wish you nothing but the best in your new life together. Thank you for pulling together an amazing wedding that we won’t soon forget and, of course, thank you for having us provide your New Hampshire wedding photography! It was an honor.

Jenna + Matt | LaBelle Winery Amherst NH Wedding Video

Jenna + Matt met in 2014 during his last year at The University of Southern Maine. Jenna had graduated from UNH a few years before, and recently moved back to her Maine hometown. It was Saturday night and they were both out bar hopping with friends in Portland's Old Port. Their first "date" consisted of Matt holding Jenna's hand as they walked down Fore Street, dancing the night away, and ended with a kiss in public before they parted ways. They spent time together off and on for the remainder of the school year and when Matt went home after graduation, they decided to continue a long distance relationship. A few years later Jenna made the big move to Massachusetts permanently, along with her dog and the rest is history!

Matt has a crazy work schedule that prevents them from spending a lot of time with each other. So on the rare days that they do have together, they cherish. Jenna + Matt planned a weekend getaway to Newport, Rhode Island for some fun and R&R. Leading up to their mini vacation, Matt asked Jenna's parents for their blessing and told their families that he was going to propose. She had put so much pressure on him... "make sure if you decide to propose someday that my nails look good, I have a cute outfit on, there's someone there to take a picture..." He made an elaborate plan, but the weather didn't cooperate. It was cold and it rained off and on most of the weekend. Matt ended up proposing in front of Castle Hill Lighthouse, with the most beautiful view in the background. Jenna was in yoga pants and a sweatshirt. There was not a single person in sight. But it was still perfect.

Alyssa + John | Currier Museum Wedding

Currier Museum Wedding NH Images Photography & Video

Alyssa and John were married on June 9th, with a ceremony and reception at the Currier Museum in Manchester, New Hampshire.

 

Both Alyssa and John are attorneys—which is actually how they met. In fact, both of their families are filled with fellow law professionals, and it was Alyssa’s Aunt Helen who used that connection to get these two together. She set them up at a new lawyer function, and the rest, as they say, is history.

 

Currier Museum Wedding Photography

We were impressed with the venue that Alyssa and John chose for their wedding. Weddings at the Currier Museum are a treat for Manchester wedding photographers. The art museum was a unique choice, but it reflected their personalities perfectly. With plenty of nooks and crannies that my second shooter, Bruce Preston, and I were able to take advantage of for portraits. Every corner inspired creativity and the colors from the artwork provided a beautiful backdrop. The museum has a wide, handsome stone staircase they use as an aisle to the altar. Alyssa descended the staircase, making for some dramatic, beautiful pictures of her grand entrance.

 

One image, in particular of the two of them on the stairs was so special. The light fell just right, so that it looked like they were posing for a romantic movie poster. It honestly looked like a spotlight had fallen on the two of them. Add to that the fact that they couldn’t take their eyes off of each other, and the romantic ambiance was complete.

 

Alyssa & John, thank you for letting us be part of your summer wedding celebrations. It was an honor to provide your wedding photography. We enjoyed getting to see such a unique wedding and know that the two of you will continue to walk your own paths together.
