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

Posted by Peter Clayman on Wed, Sep 10, 2014 @ 02:09 PM

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.

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.

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!

Looking back at some engagement photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Wed, Jan 12, 2011 @ 11:13 PM

Hi Everyone,

I hope this blog sees you well...A few weeks ago, we did this awesome engagement session by the beach right as a storm was passing by off the coast...the waves were amazing and just as the session was moving forward the sun started to peek out from the clouds so the sky was incredibly dramatic...

I always recommend doing an engagement photo session for several reasons...its good practice for your wedding photography, its a great bonding experience between you and the photographer and finally it can make mom and dad happy as well as you the couple...so let me ask you...when was the last time you had professional pics done...

As always I welcome your feedback.  Some facts about the session for those who care...the couple is Taylor and Chris and we went to Odiorne State Park in Rye, NH.  The session lasted about 40 mins...it was fairly cold, but not bad.

All my best,

Peter

Wedding Videography - Fun First Wedding Dance

Posted by Jaime Wood on Thu, Aug 05, 2010 @ 06:59 AM
Your wedding first dance is a long-standing tradition, but there's nothing that says it can't be fun and unorthodox!  More and more, we are seeing couples coming up with fantastic creative first dances for their weddings and skipping the more traditional ballroom style dance.  Below is a clip from a recent wedding we did at The Atkinson Country Club, where Daisy and Mike had a surprise first dance for their guests.  Enjoy!  All my best, Jaime.
