Mountain View Grand Wedding: Michael & Rachael

Fall is always a special time in New Hampshire, but it is especially beautiful up at the classic and historic hotel, The Mountain View Grand. Michael and Rachael wed there on October 11th, 2015 on a stunning and slightly overcast fall day. The slight overcast is a dream come true there, for when the sun is filtered, the mountains and the colors just seem to “pop” even more than usual! Michael and Rachael both got ready with the wedding parties inside the inn, and opted for an incredibly sweet first look moment. Michael could barely keep it together when he saw his bride in her brillant vintage-esque wedding gown. Right after their intimate moment, all of Rachael’s bridesmaids were out on a porch be hind them waving and giggling with excitement, so cute! We wondered all around the eloquent Mountain View Grand for their couple photos. It seemed like every time we turned around there was another beautiful spot, and the light was working with us perfectly. Oh, and the temperature was just perfect for a fall wedding day! After their portraits we met up with the bridal party and also family to do take those photos as well. Then it was almost sunset, which meant it was time for Michael and Rachael to get married on the Overlook Lawn with the sun, mountains, friends and family surrounding them. They had a beautiful ceremony, sealed it with a kiss, and were ready to celebrate with all that had traveled to be with them on their special day! There were dances, toasts, and more dancing that filled the evening. We even took a few special portraits right after the sun had just gone down. Wowza! What a day! Thank you Michael and Rachael! We LOVED capturing your beautiful day, and feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such a lovely and sweet couple!

Christmas Farm Inn Wedding: Amy & Jon

Amy and Jon were married on a cool, crisp fall afternoon at the Christmas Farm Inn in Jackson, New Hampshire on October 11, 2014.  I have been in contact with Amy regarding the details of her wedding day for almost a year.  One of the first things she shared with me was how she really wanted to re-design her mother’s wedding dress but didn’t know if it would work.  It was a success!  One of my favorite dresses thus far this season.  With her family being friends of my family, this wedding was special to me as I’ve known some of them since I was a little girl.  Amy and Jon tied in details from the west (Colorado) and expressed their love of skiing and the mountains any way they could throughout the day.  They both opted for a first look moment before the ceremony.  Jon waited for Amy outside the house they rented for the wedding as Amy handed out gifts to her maid of honor and shared some last minute hugs.  We were able to spend an adequate amount of time for portraits with just Amy and Jon alone in Jackson.  I love this time to not feel rushed.  Some of my favorite portraits came towards the end as Amy and Jon loosened up in front of the camera and started to forget I was there.  The rest of the day went so smoothly.  Friends and family arrived in time for a quick (but not lacking emotion) ceremony and lingered at the cocktail hour outside as the last bit of light left the sky.  The evening closed with friends and family uniting to support Amy and Jon’s life together.  What a fun wedding this was to capture!  So much emotion and pure happiness exuded from everyone this day.  Thank you for asking me to capture that.
