Natalie + Tyler | Lee, NH Outdoor Wedding

Colors, all the colors! Flowers, all the flowers!

As a New Hampshire Wedding Photographer I am blessed to see many personalities shine through on each wedding day, and this gorgeous Flag Hill Distillery & Winery wedding is no different! Natalie and Tyler flew in all the way from Portland, Oregon for their friend, family and love filled day. Natalie’s mother is the floral genius behind all of the arrangements that you will see, and man, when mamas love and heart is in something, she delivers!

Natalie chose to walk down the aisle in a honeybee embroidered gown, and truthfully, it was perfect. I always preach to my couples to do what you want, its your day, make it ALL ABOUT YOU. Natalie did not want a crisp white “traditional” gown and she didn’t force it for family. Tyler walked the aisle also in a vintage brown tweed, I mean these two are the poster children for “I do what I want, and I look killer while doing it!” Also when I say Tyler walked the aisle, yes he too walked the aisle, he did not walk up the side to the front with his grooms men, Natalie actually walked the aisle first with both parents guiding her on this journey. She then waited as the speakers sang out “Here comes your man” and Tyler too came down the aisle with both of his parents walking with him.

Tyler is part of a band back home in Portland, Oregon and much to the happy surprise of family and friends, Tyler got up and serenaded his bride on their wedding day.

Beautiful Details | Invitation

 

It is no lie that I absolutely love my details time during the wedding day. I get to sit down and play with your beautiful dress and gorgeous jewelry,  what is not to love?! A key part of bringing your day full circle when it comes to documentation is incorporating your invitation with your details. When you stop and think about it, this is the first thing your guests see, it sets the stage for your day before they even arrive! In the off season I love to check out all the beautiful options that my brides are given while searching for invitations. I came upon Basic Invite and, fell in love with their quality cards, and awesome new designs! Check out below two of my favorites, clean and real wood invites! 

Yes CLEAR and WOOD! How fun right! Also even better, the fact that they are not through the roof in cost! 

 

I love how both the wood grain and clear acrylic can go from rustic to chic simply with how you choose to style the rest of your day. Pair either with a beautiful vineyard wedding or backyard farm gathering, and perfection! 

Check out Basic Invite for more gorgeous invitations, and don't forget to save an clean invitation suite for me on your wedding day! Better yet, mail me one! 

 

Seacoast New Hampshire Wedding Photographer | 2017 Wrap Up

 

One of the best things about being a New Hampshire wedding photographer is watching the beauty of the seasons change from one session to the next. Couples engagement session can be scheduled any time from contract to wedding month, and I always love looking back and comparing the seasons between the two.

How beautiful is it to have full NH fall colors in an engagement session and then full summer greenery come wedding day, or beautiful apple blossoms in late spring to the gorgeous golden oak trees at an autumn wedding.

New Hampshire really does spoil us with the beauty of seasons.

Colleen + Adam | Engagement Session | Wagon Hill | Durham, NH

 

Adam and Colleen are super sweet, and when I met them at Flag Hill Winery for our initial meeting and found out that they had only been engaged less than a month, I knew we were a fit! I mean talk about efficient!! Efficient, and gorgeous, I mean look at Colleens GORGEOUS hair! Hair like that combined with the gorgeous fall foliage is what NH wedding photographers dream of! 

I then found out that they were about to fly off on a two week trip around England, to spend time will all of Adams family there, and that is when I asked if possibly I could fit in their luggage, I mean everyone needs a traveling family photographer right!? Anyone who knows me, knows I have a slight obsession with everything England, it may even be a bit unhealthy... but hey i'm in love! 

We met up just shy of one year to their wedding date, for their engagement session at Wagon Hill, in Durham, NH. The grounds are stunning and the fact that we were bouncing around ten other photographers was no surprise. They even brought along a little extra love with a brown nose, and four legs, just wait until you see him! 
 

Colleen and Adam I am honored that you have chosen me to document your gorgeous wedding day at Flag Hill Winery, it is going to be a beautiful day! It was great to also be able to meet your little furry baby Porter, he really was so well behaved and the best!
