A beautiful Spring Wedding on Lake Winnipesaukee at Mill Falls. Tracy and Ryan - 4/11/15
Tracy and Ryan were married on a cold, blustery spring day at Mill Falls in Meredith NH. Lake Winnipesaukee may have been still sixty percent covered with ice, but these two high school sweethearts kept everyone warm with their loving gazes and a large crowd of friends and family that enjoyed sharing in their special day. Tracy had beautiful shades of pink roses in her bouquet. There were a few meaningful details to the flowers by Ford Flowers... The bride had a special pink breast cancer pin as a remembrance to her mother. The adorable flower girls had rose wands that sparkled! The amazing cake was by Jacques Pastries. Ceremony and Reception were in the Winnipesaukee Room. We were lucky enough to capture some amazing shots both inside and outside with gorgeous back drops!

Alexandra, originally from Massachusetts + Nick originally from Vermont, met while attending college in Vermont and had their wedding in New Hampshire.
Sticking with tradition, Alex and Nick did not do a first look and Nick saw her for the first time when she walked through the doors at St. Joseph's Church in Laconia. Following their beautiful ceremony, everyone headed over to Church Landing in Meredith for the reception.
The Massachusetts and Vermont origins were incorporated into their reception details with a Cornhole Game for guests to sign in lieu of a guest book that each had a state on them. They also had their cake toppers with the state silhouettes. The reception began with some fun introductions and a mini bridal party dance off. It was a great night with some true heartfelt toasts. We had a lot of fun sharing in this special day, thank you Alex + Nick. Here's their Sneak Peek film. Enjoy!
Amanda & Gary were married in a beautiful scenic area in Alton Bay, NH called Kabeyun...I have known Amanda for years as she was the senior wedding coordinator at castle in the clouds up in Moultonboro. This was a great wedding simply because the more unique things that you can have at your wedding the more opportunities to capture something unique. I also loved this wedding because Amanda and Gary love the outdoors so everything fit their personalites.
So for this wedding we covered everything from bridal preparations through the reception. Starting off bridal preparations but with a twist...Amanda helped her soon to be husband get ready which made for some unique images.
So before the ceremony we did most of the family pics and some with Amanda and Gary. The campsite was huge and we had so many options at our disposal.
The ceremony was set slightly in the woods overlooking the water. Here are some of the highlights from the ceremony.
After the ceremony we went onto Gary's boat for a little joy riding...I now know what Gary's second love looks like ;)
Once we were finished with taking pictures Amanda and Gary made their way to mingling with guests during the cocktail hour. Everything was right on the water and they placed decorated tables near the docs so people could be emmersed in the scenery.
So as the reception kicked off, Amanda and Gary did their first dance and went right into the parent dances after that the formalities...once that was all done we had some of the best food I have ever had at a wedding. The catering was done by Hart's Turkey Farm and featured one of my favs lobster mac and cheese and it was aaawwwssooommeee!! Finally DJ Nate Downs had everyone dancing throughout the night and they had a bonfire going on and this is what we were able to get! To all the couples out there...do something different and this is what you can get!!! We wish Amanda and Gary all the happiness in the world!
