Bethany & Adam ~ Hotel Portsmouth ~ Wedding Photography

Posted by Peter Clayman on Mon, Dec 22, 2014 @ 04:06 PM

Bethany & Adam were married a few weeks ago near the heart of downtown Portsmouth, NH at a cozy place called The Hotel Portsmouth. It was an intimate wedding (which we love) with just very close family attending.

We started out doing just a touch of the getting ready then it was off to do a first reveal.  Adam was a little nervous to say the least, and it was a very sweet private moment for the two of them.  Since there was limited time left in terms of daylight we immediately jumped into the car to a nice private area of downtown Portsmouth.  Its right by city hall and we stumbled upon this spot while doing an engagement session earlier this year.  For such a busy little city this area is quiet  and quite picturesque.

Once we got back it was time for the wedding ceremony (once they warmed up :).  One of the moments we relish capturing is the raw emotion just before the ceremony starts...In this case Bethany's dad was sweetly caught up in the moment as they were about to walk down the isle. Once the ceremony started they exchanged vows and rings and after there was a celebratory toast! We wish our happy couple all the best life has to offer.

Laura Kowalski, the Ashworth's Senior Wedding Planner and her team did a great job setting up the ceremony and reception for everyone to relax and enjoy.  The ceremony was full of emotion as Christina and Steve said their "I do's" One of the cool things was that Steve incorporated his daughter in the ceremony by giving her a rose.

After the ceremony we went across the street to the beach for some family and creative wedding photos and video.

At the reception DJ Billy Rears from Get Down Tonight Entertainment had everyone rocking the night out.  They had some additional special dances where Christina danced with her brother and Steve danced with his daughter. We all wish Christina and Steve all the happiness in the world as they start their married life together!
