Rachel + Trevor | Birchwood Vineyard | Wedding Photography

Birchwood Vineyard Derry NH Wedding Peter Clayman Photography

Rachel and Trevor were married on June 4th, with a ceremony and reception at Birchwood Vineyard, in Derry, NH.

Rachel is the sales and event manager at the Mountain View Grand Resort in Whitefield, New Hampshire, while Trevor’s focus is more on cars and the need for speed. It’s always a pleasure to be asked to photograph events where a professional event manager like Rachel is involved. We know that she works with so many photographers and vendors, so choosing us out of all the other options is truly an honor.

The weather only barely held out for us at the beginning of the big day. We were lucky enough that we were able to capture the first look and portraits outside before the rain started—it would have been a shame if we hadn’t been able to show off the scenic beauty of Birchwood Vineyards! If they hadn’t opted for the first look, we wouldn’t have any outdoor pictures, and so those are among our favorites simply because we were so lucky to get them.

It wasn’t just the weather and the beautiful background that made this first look amazing, though. Trevor’s reaction to seeing Rachel for the first time was genuinely moving, the kind of response that photographers dream of when we set up first looks. 

After that, we had to hold the ceremony indoors, because it had started to rain. But even with the weather forcing us inside, we had the most beautiful subjects. We were glad to witness their harmonious union. 

Thank you, Rachel & Trevor, for letting us be part of your big day. We wish you both all the best in the rest of your lives together. Thanks also to the entire staff at Birchwood for doing a terrific job—even with the weather being uncooperative!

Kate + Mike | Bedford Village Inn | NH Wedding Photography

Kate and Mike were married on June 10th, with a ceremony and reception at the Bedford Village Inn in Bedford, NH.

It’s always nice to see old clients and their families again, and that was the case with this wedding. Ricky, whose cousin was getting married, was an old NH Images wedding client, and it was amazing to get to see him again as he did a reading for his cousin.  It’s a special honor to see those old clients still enjoying their happily ever after long after the big day that we were able to document for them. We were so happy to be invited to another event with this wonderful family.

Mike, who works at Fidelity Investments, and Kate, who works for Meditech doing company health records, were high school sweethearts. They’ve seen each other through the ups and downs of growing up and becoming adults together, and that strength and support is so obvious to see just watching the two of them. 

Before the ceremony, we set up a first look with Kate and her bridesmaids as well as one with her dad. The girls were thrilled to see their friend in her stunning wedding look, but the look on her father’s face truly took the cake. 

Then, during the ceremony, the officiant, John, read letters written by each set of parents about their child as part of the ceremony. Kate and Mike hadn’t known about it beforehand, and the surprise and pure emotion on their faces was a joy to document.  

Although we love every single one of the images from this wedding, the ones from our nighttime shoots are particularly breathtaking. Those images as well as the one shot by the fire lounge are some of the pictures we’re proudest of.

Thank you, Kate & Mike, for allowing us to be part of your special day. Thanks also to McKenzie from the Bedford Village Inn for pulling off a spectacular wedding and being a real help to us!

Melissa + Derek | Pat's Peak | NH Wedding

Melissa and Derek were married on June 2nd, with a ceremony and reception at Pat’s Peak, in Henniker, New Hampshire.

 

They met online, and once they got together in person, that was it—they were in love. The two of them are always busy—Derek as a state trooper for New Hampshire with a distinguished military career and Melissa as a paralegal—but the thing that shines through with both of them is their love not only for each other but for other people. Both of them have dedicated their lives to service, and it was even more amazing to see that side of them come out for the people they are closest to.

 

Bridgett from Pat’s Peak set up a beautiful wedding for these two—perfectly true to Melissa’s idea of what she wanted her dream wedding to be like. There’s something supremely satisfying about seeing a bride so pleased with the day, and Melissa was incredibly gracious and grateful.

 

Of course, the only drawback was the crazy weather that we got hit with. Mother Nature put on a ridiculous show for us—yet we persevered! But in the middle of all that, the sun came out, and it lit up the world with the most amazing rainbow.

 

Melissa & Derek, thank you for letting us be part of your wedding day! You were wonderful to brave the weather, and we wish you both nothing but the best.

Angie and Josh | Mount Sunapee Wedding

Posted by Peter Clayman on Wed, May 31, 2017 @ 06:00 PM

Mount Sunapee Wedding, NH Images Photography And Video

Angie and Josh were married on May 28th, with a ceremony at the summit of Mount Sunapee, in Newbury, NH, with a reception on the mountain.

 

Josh and Angie met in high school, so they have actually known each other for 18 years! They had gone their separate ways after school, but fate pulled them back together a few years ago. So, you could say that this big day has been a long time coming, and everyone was obviously so excited to see the two of them tie the knot.

 

On the day of the wedding, we took a gondola up to the summit, with Bruce Preston acting as second shooter. Gondola rides are always amazing, and this was no different—and the perfect way to start out the wedding. The weather was amazing and the couple looked so excited for the day to come.

Angie and Josh opted to do a first look ahead of the ceremony, which is always fun, but this time, there was a little something different. Josh had decided to shave off his beard and mustache for the big day, and he was nearly unrecognizable!

During the ceremony itself, Angie’s sister played an original song that she had written herself. That kind of personal, emotional touch truly brought weight to the ceremony and showed how much Angie is loved by her family.

We spent much of the rest of the day with Angie and Josh through the reception admiring the scenery. We can’t say enough wonderful things about this venue—the views were breathtaking, and the mountain scenery is a photographer’s dream. When spring arrives on the mountain it is simply spectacular.

 We would also like to thank Lynda and Pipere from Mount Sunapee. They were both great to work with, and it really does make all the difference when the people running the venue can make sure the whole day proceeds as smoothly as possible.

Angie and Josh, thank you for including us in your big day! We wish you both nothing but the best in your lives together.

Lindsay and Mark | Manchester Country Club Wedding

Posted by Peter Clayman on Tue, May 23, 2017 @ 06:00 PM

Manchester Country Club Wedding, NH Images Photography

Lindsay and Mark were married on May 20th, with a ceremony and reception at the Manchester Country Club in Bedford NH.

These two met at the Beer Garden in Southie (South Boston), and the two of them simply fell deeper in love with each passing day from there. They have been entirely supportive of each other, as Lindsay is a medical assistant and Mark is a gas tech at National Grid, and clearly, the two of them love to surprise each other, since Mark proposed to Lindsay and surprised her during his own surprise birthday party that she’d thrown for him!

We started off the day of the wedding photographing the bride and her ladies “getting ready” before we staged a first look between Lindsay and her father. The whole day was all the more special because Lindsay’s mom had passed away a while ago. Although it was a celebration, Lindsay and her family made sure to honor her memory at every chance.

Mark during that time was getting ready and hanging out with his best man and brother, Brian—who was not only the best man but the officiant for the ceremony. There was a closeness between those two that made the whole ceremony, as well as the rest of the day, even more special.

The Manchester Country Club itself was amazing for both the ceremony and the reception. The weather was wonderful and the light poured in through the huge windows in the ballroom. As the sun was starting to set, we snuck Lindsay and Mark out onto the green to take a few extra pictures. Kelsey and Sarah took such good care of both the bride and groom and their guests and pulled off a spectacular party!

Mark & Lindsay, thank you so much for including us in your special day. We wish you both all the best!
