Omni Mt. Washington Hotel Winter Wedding Photograhy: Kristen + Scott

Posted by Peter Clayman on Fri, Mar 18, 2016 @ 04:15 PM




Mount_Washington_Wedding_Photography-3.jpgKristin & Scott were married at the end of February at one of the best spots to get married, The Omni Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, NH. The hotel is special to me as this is also the place that I married my amazing wife, Holly last year.  This is a story however of one mans triumph from being in the "friend zone" with Kristin to a romantic connection. I'm sure there are several people out there that would like to talk to Scott on how to do that. They are both kind and dynamic people so we are so happy for both of them. Before the ceremony our bride and groom did a first look due to daylight considerations (and wanting to get some amazing pictures outdoors). I like to do the first look in a private setting and that proved challenging as the hotel was packed with it being school vacation week as well. The ceremony was held in the conservatory, which is right next to the main lobby. The resort does such a great job making it feel like  you are worlds away from guests. One of the flower girls did a face plant right next to the bride and groom as she was walking down the isle....poor thing...but she bounced right back up. I guess at 3 years of age one can do that easily. The reception was located in the Presidential Ball Room. I always love hearing the toasts from the Maid of Honor and Best Man as you really find out some great things that make the couple special. On each table the groom placed a selfie stick for the guests to use. I had blast watching the little ones take teh selfie stick and literally run iwth it. We wish Kristin & Scott all the very best moving forward!

Laura Kowalski, the Ashworth's Senior Wedding Planner and her team did a great job setting up the ceremony and reception for everyone to relax and enjoy.  The ceremony was full of emotion as Christina and Steve said their "I do's" One of the cool things was that Steve incorporated his daughter in the ceremony by giving her a rose.

10.16.10 Melissa + Dan's Home Hill Inn Wedding Video Preview

Posted by Jaime Wood on Wed, Oct 20, 2010 @ 07:49 AM

After a couple of days of torrential rains and winds strong enough to bring down large trees, Melissa & Dan got married at the Home Hill Inn in Plainfield, NH.  It was the perfect fall day for their wedding.  The skies parted and produced the most amazing clouds in between spectacular sun rays, the ground dried out and the foliage was perfect up in the Dartmouth region of the state for their outdoor tented wedding.  This is their wedding video highlight reel.  Enjoy!  All my best, Jaime

Marriage License Info for your New Hampshire Wedding

Posted by Jaime Wood on Wed, Jul 07, 2010 @ 08:29 AM

White Mountain NH WeddingNew Hampshire is a popular state to have a destination wedding.  From the seacoast, to the White Mountains and North Country, there are so many beautiful places to have a wedding here.  And once you've picked a location and set your date, you'll need to look into applying for a marriage license.  Here's some info I found on about.com to help you in your wedding planning.  Best wishes, Jaime.

New Hampshire Marriage License Information by Sheri & Bob Stritof, About.com Guide

Here's what you need to know and what documents to bring with you before you apply for a New Hampshire marriage license. We recommend contacting the City Clerk's office to verify this information and suggest that you get this legal aspect of your wedding out of the way about a month before your wedding date.

Requirements may vary as each county in New Hampshire could have their own requirements.

ID and Residency Requirements in New Hampshire:
  • You will need photo identification, such as your driver's license. If you are 25 years or younger, you may be asked to show a certified copy of your birth certificate. You will also need to provide Social Security numbers.
  • You do not have to be a resident of New Hampshire.
  • A marriage license in New Hampshire is valid for ninety (90) days.
Same-Sex Marriage:
  • Yes. Effective January 1, 2010, same-sex marriage islegal in New Hampshire. In the past, as of January 1, 2008, same-sex civil unions were allowed in New Hampshire. 
  • FAQ About New Hampshire Civil Unions
Previous Marriages:
  • If you have been divorced, a certified copy of your divorce decree is required. If widowed, bring in a copy of your spouse's death certificate.
Waiting Period and Blood Test Requirement in New Hampshire:
  • None -- there is no waiting period in New Hampshire and there is no blood test requirement.
  • Although the waiting period was cancelled in 2006, you may still find official county or city websites that wrongly mention a 3-day waiting period to receive your marriage license. You can read the documentation in Title XLIII, Chapter 457 of the New Hampshire RSA for the full text of the law.
  • If you have questions, we recommend that you contact the City or County Clerk where you want to get married.
Fees in New Hampshire:
  • You will need to pay $45 in cash to get married in New Hampshire.
Under 18:
  • The law is complicated in New Hampshire. Individuals under the age of 18 may not marry in New Hampshire without parental approval and a judicial waiver. Brides must be at least 13 years of age and grooms must be at least 14 years of age before their parents can apply for a judicial waiver.
Proxy Marriage in New Hampshire:
  • No.
Cousin Marriage in New Hampshire:
  • No.
Common-Law Marriage in New Hampshire:
  • Not if you are both alive. Common-law marriages are only recognized in New Hampshire at death for estate/inheritance purposes. (N.H. RSA. 457:39)

Officiants in New Hampshire:

  • Weddings can be solemized by a judge, supreme court justice, assistant judge, justice of the peace, priest, rabbi, or minister residing in New Hampshire. Non-resident clergy need to receive a special license from the Secretary of State.

6.26.10 - Lauren & Matt's Mountain View Grand Wedding

Posted by Jaime Wood on Thu, Jul 01, 2010 @ 12:59 PM

Mountain View Grand Wedding JuneWho ever said that you can't have a wedding ceremony outside in the rain didn't know Lauren & Matt!  On June 26th I had the distinct pleasure of sharing in Lauren & Matt's day up at the Mountain View Grand in Whitefield, NH.  Such a fabulous spot, I love filming weddings there.  It was raining when it was time to have the ceremony, but Lauren and Matt still went for it outside anyways, and they got the cheering approval from all their guests.

With the help of Diana Ma Weddings, Lauren planned and designed the details of this day so perfectly.  From the awesome green color of the bridesmaids dresses, that carried through in the linens and AMAZING flower arrangements by Emily Herzig Floral Studio to the programs by Gus & Ruby Letterpress and lighting, this wedding was one for the magazines. 

Oh, and let me just say that the band Lauren & Matt chose - OUT OF THIS WORLD!!  First Class Band out of Boston, MA performed phenomenally!  The dance floor was packed the entire night.  I would highly recommend them if you're interested in a band for your reception.

Thank you to Lauren & Matt for letting me be a part of such an amazing day.  It is certainly a day that I will not forget.

All my best,
