There is nothing like a Fall wedding in New England. Britney and John had a wonderful October wedding at The Family Worship Center in Plymouth with their reception at The Inn on Newfound Lake. To call this a perfect day, would be selling it short. And this was a couple who deserved beautiful weather. It is a pleasure to photograph a couple as kind and giving as this one. During their ceremony after exchanging their vows, they each visited the others parents and offered a vow to them as well. Very unique and extremely touching.
Congratulations Britney & John!
Jill and Will’s wedding was, quite possibly, on the best day of the Fall this year. An amazing day for a Church Island wedding. But everything was not as perfect as the weather After the ceremony on the boat ride back to the shore, the boat broke down. Some couples may have flipped out, but Jill and Will didn’t miss a beat, tied their boat to another and kept on going. The delay did get us back to the Margate a little bit later then expected but again they just cruised through their formals, taking the last just as sun dipped behind the trees. This is a wedding that I will always remember. Congratulation Jill and Will!
All weddings are special…but some are spectacular. This wedding was definitely a notch or two above special. First the location in Sandwich, NH was beautiful, the weather was fantastic, and most importantly, the couple had waited a long time to legally marry.

I’ve been to a lot of weddings and I still find each and every one fresh and moving. Jac and Dan’s wedding ceremony was no exception. Here is an excerpt from the couples friend and wedding officiant Walter Dunbar.
“The word marriage can be broken down to mean “ocean age” or the age of water. Mar or mari in both Latin and Spanish means the sea, the ocean. Words like marina, marines and marsh all share the water root. And age is a period of time. Water has always represented the unknown mystery, the subconscious dream realm. It’s mystical and can flow, crash, trickle and splash. And you will be sailing across this uncharted mysterious ocean in your relationship. Although you are both individuals, today’s union makes the two one and now you can identify yourself as the ship. Dan and Jac, I want you to imagine what your ship would look like ’cause you’re gonna be cruising in it for the rest of your lives. You started out in a friendship, dated in a partnership, but this relationship has been under construction ’til today and it’s time to leave harbor and sail into the Mystic. If you always do what is best for the relationship you will enjoy a long voyage–an odyssey. And during storms and rough seas, trust the relationship you built: one person can’t row or you’ll go in circles. Find the balance. You two are the only people to know how your ship handles. And at times you may want to steer in opposite directions. At times you may have to make sacrifices, but if you sacrifice not as a personal win or loss, but do what is best for the relationship, your ship will never fail you. You will float and ride the waves. You will get past the rough seas and enjoy the sunshine that follows. This voyage is about the journey and not a destination.”
Bon Voyage, Jac and Dan!
Amy and Dave are long-time sweethearts. I get to learn all these amazing things about couples through their wedding toasts. Dave was actually Amy’s date at her Bat Mitzvah, if you can believe it. Here we are many years later celebrating their wedding at the beautiful Wentworth by the Sea in New Castle, NH.
Now, this wedding was rather amazing. The food was incredible, including exotic cheese spreads and sushi during the cocktail hour. And details to die for like the flower vase sculpted from ice and intricately lite. And then there was the music… the band Soho from Nightshift Entertainment was out of this world. They did a rendition of Hava Nagila that was nothing short of amazing and that was just the beginning. Truly a wedding to remember!
