Teaser 010056;03
 
Melissa + Eric met online in March 2014.  Melissa was living in Massachusetts and Eric was in New Hampshire so Eric came down to see Melissa for their first date at the Cheesecake Factory in Peabody, MA.  After chatting thought text/phone calls for a few weeks, Eric started going down to see Melissa every weekend and then Melissa began traveling up to NH.  Eventually Melissa moved to NH near the end of 2015.

As a couple, they love to spend time with their 3 animals, go on dinner dates and explore walking trails with their dog.

When Eric proposed, it was in November of 2017 while they were out to dinner with family.  Melissa never saw it coming. 

Melissa + Eric were married on March 30th surrounded by their closest family and friends at the Manchester Country Club in Bedford NH.  With beautiful flowers by Anne's Florals and Chad from Get Down Tonight as their DJ, it was the perfect day to celebrate love.

Shortly after returning home from a long day at work, Amanda discovered the new dog tag on Hank's collar and when she turned around Greg was down on his knee.

Mt Washington Hotel Wedding Video : Cassandra + Josh

Mt Washington Hotel Wedding Video

Cassandra + Josh met through mutal friends in high school and dated briefly but then went their separate ways when Josh joined the military after graduation.  Seven years later, Josh came home from his 2nd deployment and they reconnected and have been together ever since.  They love to spend time up in the White Mountains and in N. Conway.  Josh even proposed at Peach's, one of their (and my!) favorite breakfast places in N. Conway.  So it was very fitting that they chose the Omni Mount Washington Hotel for their gorgeous ceremony and reception.  The day could not have been more perfect with the summit of Mt. Washington completely exposed.

We were honored to share in their day.  Thank you so much for letting us capture these memories for you.  Enjoy the Sneak Peek!  {Jaime}

My Turn - A Wedding Photographer Gets Married

So here is a story...As you all know I'm a wedding photographer...so what happens when that wedding photographer...who has shot hundreds of weddings...and has been single for a long time...gets married...and is now on the other side of the camera...that is now my story.

bride and groom 

A little background on my life (which normally I refrain from telling because quite frankly I don't think anyone really cares...aka I have an average life I guess you would say). I was married once for about 12 years...and I was very very young when I got married...I would not change anything from that experience as I have two awesome kids from that relationship (and another came along later on)...We essentially eloped and I had a friend of mine take the pictures...and although he did the best he could the reality is most of them did not come out at all (I always preach to get a pro from this experience). Holly, my now lovely wife was also married once before and has two great kids from her marriage. We met online via Match.com and the rest they say is history...and yes we are the Brady Bunch between us and 5 kids total...

 bride and groom

So here we are on our wedding day. So much planning, so much stress, with last second things to do and I am not going to document the day via photography...I am not going be creating works of art myself...through my eye...I left that task to my staff Sarah & Leah (they did an amazing job)...when Sarah came to visit me for some brief getting ready I was very self aware of what was going on...the background the images would be taken...I laid out all the important items for detail shots...and then I had to tell myself...stop it...The advise I give my couples to just enjoy the day and be in the moment I wasn't doing initially...so I stopped it...I really started to be in the moment and just enjoy being around my boys.

Then came the first reveal or first look. I know virtually every aspect on how to bring the emotion of seeing your mate for the first time that day...and Leah sent me in a new direction (great job!) making me reflect back on my journey...my journey that brought me to this point...and for me the journey before that moment was full of highs and lows of which I was able to rise up when it mattered most. Holly is what mattered most and what our new life was about to become...I really thought about that and the tears started streaming down. I was about to be with my love, my partner, my friend.

 bride and groom

So now its time for the ceremony...for me its normally a series of check downs on where the bride is going to come and making sure that I am ready to photograph the ceremony...except the guests are all looking at us...frankly it was like a dream that someone took my camera away and said...its your time...its your turn at love now...you don't have to photograph it this time...this time...you are the lucky one...

 bride and groom

We really had a pretty custom ceremony for us in so many ways. First our kids made up our bridal party...my daughter Olivia was the maid of honor and my son Troy was best man. My son Hunter was ring bearer and my new step daughter Madeleine was flower girl and Cam was just plain cute holding a sign that said “here comes my mommy”...just awesome. It continues with my business partner and one of my best friends Jaime officiating the ceremony...she did such an awesome job and worked so hard to make it special for us...great job Jaime!! We wrote custom vows to each other and did a family unity sand ceremony so everyone was involved which was important to us! And finally I have witnessed Ed Charest perform so many weddings of which he always talks about the journey of life as your marriage progresses and I have always enjoyed that aspect of his ceremony...well he was kind enough the speak to us about that very topic...and it was icing on the cake...yes of course the pun was intended ;)

 bride and groom

The Omni Mount Washington Hotel is just an amazing place to have a wedding for the beauty inside and outside of the venue and we were able to get some magical shots in the snow.

 bride and groom

We had great time with our friends and family which is really what its all about. So from our amazing wedding I have a renewed appreciation for all that goes into a wedding...and I have a renewed appreciation that life is short so be in the moment with the ones that matter most...we had the most awesome photo and video people (great job Matt who filmed our wedding!) from NH Images take care of things and that gave us the freedom relax and enjoy...thank you all for your support in wishing us a lifelong with happiness.
