Kerriann & Nick ~ Black Swan Country Club ~ Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Wed, Sep 17, 2014 @ 04:44 PM

Kerriann & Nick were married at one of the prettiest country clubs around The Black Swan Country Club, Georgetown, MA.  Although the venue was pretty inside and out the weather was...not so much. So what these pictures can show you is that even when the weather gives you lemons...there is lemonade to be had.

We started out photographing bridal preparations that included details from the dress, shoes and jewlery.  We were also able to get images of hair and make up done which I think is so important when it comes to the aspect of story telling through pictures.

Before everyone left for the venue Kerriann, her parents and bridal party all had a moment while her dad saw the beautiful bride in her dress for the first time.

Kerriann and her parents took a Rolls Royce from Black Tie Limo Services and had one of the best drivers I have ever known Mark...he is amazing and so accomodating.  Everyone was wisked into formation to start the ceremony as the rain drops began to fall.

Although it was beginning to rain during the ceremony that did not put a damper on some very sweet "I do's"

After the ceremony we raced to get a couple of images taken with Kerriann and Nick but the rain was coming down too quickly and we needed to retreat.  Not to worry when you have your wedding at the Black Swan Country Club...they have a very convenient overhang that keeps you dry and we were able to get the proper outdoor looking shots to keep everyone happy.  Thank goodness they had that...here are a few shots from the session.

Before reception started we were also able to get creative on a few indoor shots as well :)

The reception was decorated beautifully and uplighting was a nice added touch.

The reception began with introductions along with the first dance and parent dances.  There were some heartfelt speeches, cake cutting and DJ Kevin Cain had them dancing throughout the night. We also want to give Caryl a huge shout out.  She is the Senior Wedding Planner for the Black Swan and she did a great job managing all aspects of the day.  We wish Kerriann & Nick all the happiness in the world!!

Nicole & Naum - Mile Away - Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Fri, Aug 22, 2014 @ 02:37 PM

Nicole & Naum were married at a beautiful venue in Milford, NH called The Mile Away.  Not only do they have a great place to get married but they also have a wonderful restaurant to boot :)

We started with bridal preparations at the Crowne Plaza, Nashua, NH.  Although Nicole has some family in NH many of the grooms family and friends came in from LA and were experiencing New England for the first time :)  As we were going through doing the details shots of the rings we noticed that Naum had an amazing looking ring made partly out of wood...I have to say that I really liked the look!

After preparation it was of to the Mile Away.  Its a very cool eclectic place with modern facilities and rustic charm...they had all kinds of funky mirrors around and that made for some nice pictures later on.

The ceremony was sweet as the reverend described what each one of them loved about the other. Since the reverend did all the readings it left more time for pictures of the family and our bride and groom. What was refreshing and unique about this wedding is there was no bridal party.

Some of the images we took after the wedding:

As the reception began Nicole and Naum had their first dance which Naum seemed to really take in the moment.  DJ Dave Lynch had everyone dancing away and Sandy from the Mile-A-Way did a great job making sure the day ran smoothly.  We want to wish Nicole & Naum all the happiness now and in the future!

Megan & Ben were married on a warm Saturday afternoon at a relatively new venue for us LaBelle Winery in Amherst, NH.  LaBelle has it all, great locations for onsite ceremonies, scenic vistas for photo and video and a modern elegant reception area...oh and plenty of wine :)

We covered the day from bridal preparations through the reception.  As has been the case for the last several weddings we did a first reveal with dad which was very touching and sweet.  The preparations were relaxed and fun.

Megan & Ben has some very nice details at their wedding that went along with the coming together of families from the wine theme to the leaf signature board.  The ceremony was officiated by one of their friends who did a terrific job.  During the ceremony they did a winebox ceremony of which a bottle of wine is placed to be open by the couple on a specific anniversary.

We had fun taking advantage of such great scenery for the pictures as you can see below.

Jenna & Andy - Atkinson Country Club - Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Tue, Aug 05, 2014 @ 09:28 PM

Jenna & Andy were married on a Friday at one of the nicest venues you can have, The Atkinson Country Club, Atkinson, NH.  We covered the very end of the bridal preparation through a majority of the reception.

As soon as Jenna was ready we did a first look with her dad...it wasn't originally on the plan, but we had a little extra time and both Jenna our bride and her dad wanted to do...as you can see from the images there wasn't a dry eye in the room.

The ceremony was by the gazebo and we love that area because its set up for the guests to be above the ceremony spot for a better vantage point.

Jonathan & Mark - Boston - Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Thu, Jul 31, 2014 @ 08:35 PM

We have been very fortunate over the years to have done weddings all types of venues and locations, but never have we done a wedding at City Hall in Boston.

This story begins with Jonathan & Mark getting together 12 years ago.  I have personally know the both of them for almost as many years through family connections and have seen their relationship grow to what it is today...true love and a true family.  They have an amazing 1 year old son Noah who is as cute as they get.

We started out at Boston Common to get some family images and images with just as a couple before grabbing a taxi to City Hall.  From there you will see what 12 years of committment looks like as they say their vows.
