Jenny and Greg were married on Saturday, April 22 with a ceremony at North Church in Portsmouth, NH followed by a reception at the Portsmouth Harbor Event Center. Jenny and Greg met through mutual friends in college and it was so easy to see how very much in love these two are. Jenny is a dance teacher and Greg is an investment manager and after spending the day with them, it’s clear they’re perfect for each other.

Jenny and Greg decided to take advantage of both our photography and our video services. We were so thrilled that they trusted us with capturing their day. The weather was grey, cold and raw, but that didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits at all. Jenny and Greg chose to do a first look and it was so awesome because they empowered us to get creative and we were able to capture some beautiful candid moments. The brick and stone walkways at the Portsmouth Harbor gave beautiful light and texture to the images. We had the rest of the wedding party join in and the Memorial Bridge made for a unique and interesting backdrop for their portraits.

We all made our way to the beautiful North Church for the ceremony and were able to steal Greg and Jenny away for a few more portraits. There is a stunning stairway at the church and we were able to use some creative lighting techniques to grab some very intimate and special shots of the happy couple. The way their smiles shine up from the shadows wrapping around them in the stairs was really special.

After the ceremony, everyone adjourned to the Portsmouth Harbor Event Center for a spectacular party. Thanks to Meagan and Lauren from the Event Center for doing such a great job! And most importantly, thank you so much to Jenny and Greg. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness.

Theresa and Kevin were married on April 1 with a beautiful ceremony at St. Elizabeth Church in Seabrook, NH followed by a reception at the Portsmouth Harbor Event Center in Portsmouth, NH.

Theresa and Kevin were high school sweethearts. A long-lasting love like this makes out job easy, since their love is so visible in the way they look at each other and in the way they connect. Their wedding day had the weather that you hope you won’t have - cold, wet, grey, slushy snow and freezing rain. It was icy, damp, and dreary- but this couple was not going to let it dampen their spirits or ruin their day!

We started at St. Elizabeth’s where they had a beautiful full mass. The weather brought us inside for the portraits and the family pictures, but the airy, high ceilings and the stunning stained glass windows gave us a beautiful backdrop. The light that filtered through the windows burst into these amazing colors, making the church look simply magical. After the ceremony, we went over to the Portsmouth Harbor Event Center where, even though it was cold, Theresa and Kevin toughed it out and we got some beautiful captures of this happy couple. Their love lit up their smiles.

Now, this was a group that wanted to party! Later in the night, the dance floor was the place to be. The family is from New Jersey and many other New Jerseyites were in attendance. There was a ton of love for their home state and of course, plenty of Bruce Springsteen was played! The food was also great. They had filet with lobster tail and later, a soft pretzel bar with dips and toppings for a late night snack. That was a fun treat for the guests who were taking a break from the dance floor!

Special thanks to Meagan Cowan and Lauren Lossani, the coordinators at the Harbor Event Center, for doing an outstanding job. Theresa and Kevin, thank you for having us capture your special day. You embraced the weather and didn’t let it dilute the fun you had. We wish you many more years of smiling through the rain! Congratulations!
