Caitlin + Dan's Wedding at Searles Castle

Posted by Peter Clayman on Sat, Jul 28, 2018 @ 06:00 PM

 

 

Caitlin and Dan were married on July 13th, with a ceremony at St. Thomas Aquinas in Derry and a reception at Searles Castle in Windham.

We wanted to feature this wedding particularly because the wedding planner who hired us is one of our favorites. Tracy Dapp and her crew from Inked Events are always a treat to work with. We wanted to thank them for making this wedding—and all of the weddings that they’ve worked with us to plan—run so smoothly. Tracy truly excels at helping couples express what matters most to them and we felt like Caitlin and Dan’s love story was captured in all the details of their wedding day. From the stunning florals to the shamrock details on their cupcakes, so much of their wedding day reflected their vision.

Caitlin and Dan’s Searles Castle Wedding

On the day of the wedding, we covered both the bride and groom as they got ready, with second shooter Bruce Preston hanging out with the guys to start the day. We knew that Caitlin and Dan had both worked so hard to prepare for this big day, and the anticipation of the culmination of their story up to that point was palpable. Caitlin looked so excited in all the images leading up to the ceremony.

St. Thomas Aquinas was an amazing backdrop for their ceremony, with its soaring ceilings and stunning stained glass windows. The wedding itself was very traditional, from Caitlin’s grand entrance as her father walked her down the aisle to the receiving line at the end of the ceremony. That’s something that you hardly see anymore, but it was fun to see the bride and groom as they greeted friends and family and celebrated together. After the ceremony, we did portraits with the bride, groom and wedding party.

The reception at the Searles Castle was nothing short of wonderful. From the very moment that Caitlin and Dan were introduced as husband and wife, every moment was filled with joy and smiles.

Dan & Caitlin, we want to with both of you all the best in your new lives together. Thank you for letting us be part of your celebration.

Jamie + Bobby's Wedding

Dell Lea Wedding NH Images

Jamie and Bobby were married on July 7th, with a ceremony and reception at Dell-Lea in Chichester, New Hampshire.

 

Bobby was Jamie’s first ever kiss! Everyone who heard that story thought it was incredibly sweet… even though after that first kiss Jamie ran away. (Everyone was young once.) Still, even after all that time apart—in which Bobby had kids of his own and Jamie pursued a life as a teacher and made some amazing friends—they were able to reconnect three years ago. And this time, no one ran away. Instead, they picked up their romance and ran with it.

Even though it was a hot summer day, we enjoyed being around this beautiful blended family through the excitement before the ceremony and into the wedding and reception. It’s amazing not only to see a love story come together that has been so long in the making but to watch the different sides of their family all come together to celebrate—and eat cupcakes.

 

Dell-Lea has been voted the best wedding venue in New Hampshire. With its stunning mountain views, meticulously landscaped lawns and a perfect ambiance of rustic elegance, it’s not hard to see why. Jamie and Bobby had a beautiful backdrop for their “I do’s.”

 

We were also particularly pleased with the creative wedding photography we captured in that warm, light just before sunset. The light was amazing and framed them just right. We always try to get those perfectly-lit images in those golden, twilight hours. There’s something so special about preserving the first sunset a married couple shares as husband and wife.

 

Jamie & Bobby, thank you for allowing us to be part of your story. We wish you nothing but the best in your lives together with your beautiful family.

Kate + James | The Bedford Village Inn | NH Wedding Videography

Bedford Village Inn Wedding Video

Kate + James first met through a mutual friend at a bar in Newport, Rhode Island.  As a couple, they love to travel, explore Dallas (where they currently live), try new restaurants, cook new recipes and follow their Boston sports teams!

When James proposed, he had just passed his CIMA tests so Kate thought they were just grabbing dinner to celebrate. Turns out he wanted to get a drink before dinner and they were on our way to dinner and he suggested stopping at the W Hotel in Dallas, which has a nice pool deck for drinks that overlooks downtown Dallas. They got in the elevator and he pulled out a key and pressed the 11th floor button.  The pool is halfway up the building, so 11 made sense, but the fact he had a key was odd and Kate knew something was up.  They got off the elevator, walked down the hall and James opened the door to a hotel room. He led Kate to the balcony overlooking downtown Dallas where he proposed and she said yes!
 
Kate + James were married on Friday July 28th at St. Elizabeth Church in Bedford and had their reception at one of our favorite venues, the Bedford Village Inn
 
It was such an honor to share in their day.  Enjoy the Sneak Peek Film!  {Jaime + Matt}

Sossan + Jared | The Preserve at Chocorua | NH Wedding Videography

Wedding Cow Bells
Sossan + Jared first met in Quincy, WA at Sun Land while on a weekend getaway with friends. Sossan had just stated graduate school and was living with Whitney who was married to Jared's friend. They met that weekend and Jared asked Sossan out on their first date for the next weekend.
 
As a couple, Sossan + Jared love to hike and play with their puppy Finn.  They love sports, traveling and spending time with family and friends.  They are also huge Harry Potter fans and  have seen every movie at least 20 times.
 
When Jared proposed, he surprised Sossan with a weekend getaway. He told her to pack a bag but would not tell her where they were going. When they finally reached their destination, they were at Kenmore Air in Seattle, WA. They took a float plane to Friday Harbor in the San Juans and he proposed that evening at Lime Kiln State Park during sunset. He captured the whole moment on a time lapse app on his camera.
 
Sossan + Jared were married on Saturday July 15th at the gorgeous Preserve at Chocorua. Their ceremony was held on the front lawn and the reception was in the rustic barn.  It was such the perfect day that they even got a double rainbow!!

Emily + Bob | Birch Wood Vineyards | NH Wedding Videography

Posted by Jaime Wood on Tue, Jul 25, 2017 @ 08:57 PM
All Because Two People Fell In Love
When Emily + Bob first met, Emily was working at a pizza shop in North Andover while in college that Bob's parents owned. Bob would always come in and grab food, and Emily always had a major crush on him (even when they were both taken). Then later on, Emily was working a North Andover Football Golf Tournament that Bob was playing in. They fell in love over bud lights and calzones in a dim bar!! :)
 
As a couple, they love spending time with their dog, especially outdoors. They go for hikes with him on the weekends when they can, but even enjoy simply walking him to get coffee and munchkins to their local coffee shop. Emily + Bob's favorite date night is at the 99 and they really enjoy having friends over for a relaxing night of grilling and chilling!
 
Bob + Emily love each other very much, but they may love their dog even more! Bob proposed at home, with Rudy Holland (their dog) dressed in a tuxedo with the ring on his back.
 
Emily + Bob were married on Saturday July 8th at the gorgeous Birch Wood Vineyards.  It was such an honor to share in their day.  Enjoy the Sneak Peek Film!  {Jaime + Matt}
