Red Jacket Wedding: Ashley and Ryan

September is one of the most beautiful months in New England. The days are becoming more crisp and dry with fall lingering right around the corner, but the warmth of the sun still hints at summer.  On September 12th, 2015, Ashley and Ryan wed on one of those beautiful September days at the Red Jacket Mountain View Resort in the heart of North Conway, New Hampshire.  The morning was crisp and sunny and the temperature warmed rapidly.  Brian and I spent some time photographing the beautiful hotel grounds and both met up with Ashley and Ryan in neighboring townhouses to photograph them getting ready.  It’s so great to have two photographers to capture the getting ready and be able to see what the bride and the groom are doing at the same time of that portion of the day.  The apprehension to see each other for the first time is so apparent.  It’s one of my favorite times of the day to photograph.  Ashley and Ryan opted for a first look in the Intervale fields overlooking the local cliffs and some of the White Mountains.  Their bridal party met us there and we stopped at one other location on the way back to the ceremony to take some shots near a few historic barns in town.  The intimate ceremony location was held outdoors at the sister resort to the Red Jacket (The Fox Ridge) overlooking the Moat Mountain Range.  Following the ceremony, guests ventured to the Red Jacket for the cocktail hour and reception.  Toasts, formal dances and dinner were soon underway in the reception hall downstairs.  We were able to sneak outside for some evening portraits with the cloudy, moody sky in the background.  Family and friends danced the night away and the photo booth never stopped.  Thank you Ashley and Ryan for getting Brian and I into the photo booth to cap the night.  It’s a really fun memory for us to have!  You two are so great!  All the best in coming years to you both!
