Meg & Jay ~ Omni Mount Washington Hotel ~ Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Fri, Feb 13, 2015 @ 07:46 PM

I received a call just a few weeks ago from Meg telling me that she and her mate Jay were going to elope at the Omni Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, NH. It was going to take place on a Thursday and it would be just the two of them.

One of my favorite type of weddings to shoot are those who elope. There are many reasons, but I just love the intimacy that goes along with just 2 people tying the knot. The other reason is that we have plenty of time for whatever the bride and groom want...and we went all over the property with Meg & Jay.

When I started I was able to get a few images of Meg as she was finishing up getting ready...then it was quickly off for the ceremony...Jay was waiting patiently by the Presidential Foyer area of the hotel (where the ceremony was going to take place)...accompanying Jay was little Fiona...Meg & Jay's sweet little dog who was a part of the “bridal party” dressed in her pink :)

The ceremony had the traditional vows and rings...but it also had a unity candle and wine box ceremony (inside the box there is a bottle of wine along with 2 love letters to be opened in the future). After the ceremony it was off for a sleigh ride through woods...literally...a romantic ride through the snow around the property...a great way to kick off a marriage!

After we warmed up a bit we were off to do pictures on the grounds...we were able to catch the sunset hitting the mountains (it makes the mountains turn almost pink) as a great way to send our couple...into the sunset :) We wish Meg & Jay all the happiness in the world!
