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.

Johanna + Kevin have known each other since high school. After high school, Kevin went to Georgia while Johanna stayed local and attended college. In 2008 Kevin came home and they bumped into each other at a BBQ and started dating shortly after.
 
As a couple, they spend most of their time with their adorable daughter Carter. When they get some date nights, they enjoy concerts and just going out for some alone time.
 
When Kevin proposed, they were on a boat cruise in Boston Harbor.  Johanna was completely surprised and Kevin even had a stranger on the boat photograph it.

Sarah + Kevin | A Private Estate Wedding | NH Wedding Videographer

Sarah + Kevin grew up with mutual friends but never actually met until April 2007. They met at a friends party, when Kevin asked Sarah if she wanted any of the shrimp that he decided to cook. Sarah naturally said "no thank you", laughed and walked away to talk with friends. The entire night she kept telling her friends how cute he was but she was too chicken to actually talk to him. Then the night ended and they went out separate ways and Sarah figured they would never see each other again. A couple days later, Sarah was sitting at home on the computer and was talking to a few friends when she then got a random message from Jereme (Kevin's unofficial cousin who she actually when to Elementary, Middle, and High School with). He said something along the lines of, "My cousin Kevin wants to hang out with you. She said," Ok, that sounds fun." The next night they watched a few movies and then Sarah had to beg Jereme's girlfriend to bring her home because she had school the next day. So, Kevin walked her to the door to say bye. They exchanged numbers, he gave her a hug and she kissed him. The next day he called her and asked her out on an official date. 
 
On November 3, 2017 Sarah found a funny meme online that said, "November 3rd - National Men Make Dinner Day". So she sent it to Kevin.  They laughed and he asked what she wanted for dinner. To keep it simple, she just said Chicken and Salad. So, after working all day, she came home to a nice clean house, dinner on the table and 1 dozen roses. She was totally convinced that they were never going to get engaged (they had been together for 9 1/2 years already) so, she didn't think anything of it when she came home to this amazing production. Once they were done eating, Kevin took her hand and said that he already planned on making her dinner and that today was going to be a special day. Kevin then gets down on one knee, tells her how much he loves her and asked her to marry him. 
 
As a couple, Sarah + Kevin love doing anything that involves being outside like hiking, biking, going to the Lake, working on their yard, and gardening.
 
Sarah + Kevin were married on Saturday September 9th at Kevin's parents house in Sandown NH.  It was such an honor to share in their day.  Enjoy the Sneak Peek film!  {Jaime + Zach}

Polly + Alex | A Backyard Wedding | Concord NH Wedding Videographer

Concord NH backyard wedding
Polly + Alex .... I absolutely adore them!  They are so full of joy and love and are hands down the sweetest couple I have ever met.
 
Polly + Alex first met on a night out in Boston.  They were each out with separate friends, and they just had a chance encounter at a Boston Bar called Bell in Hand.  As a couple, they both love sports such as soccer, tennis, biking, swimming, hiking, climbing.  They also enjoy some quiet time together of watching movies and reading.  When Alex proposed, they went for a hike and Alex proposed at the top of the mountain.
 
Polly + Alex were married on Saturday August 26th in the backyard of Alex's childhood home in Concord NH.  With a ceremony site nestled between clusters of birch trees, and the reception tent placed next to Alex's mom's amazing flower garden, they had the perfect day.  They both got ready in separate locations in the house and had a first look in the garden.  For the ceremony, they entered in via a horse buggy and got the party started by throwing out beaded necklaces on their entrance.  It was one of the best entrances I have seen to a ceremony!  Lindsey, their wedding planner did an amazing job with all the little details that it was like a fairytale come true for Polly + Alex.
 
It was such an honor to share in their day.  Enjoy the Sneak Peek film!  {Jaime}
