I wrote yesterday that I had two very emotional weddings over the weekend and here is the second. Katye and Brian were married at the Exeter Inn in Exeter, NH. Katye brother left for Afghanistan just days before and her father has been suffering from a degenerative disease. Needless-to-say, emotions were high and amazingly so was the couple’s spirit. They celebrated Katye’s brother’s four children in the wedding party, Kayte walked her Dad down the aisle and she held her dad standing (in heels) so he could share a parent dance with her. Not a dry eye.
I truly treasure the glimpses I get into couple’s lives on their wedding day. As the season comes to an end here in November, I feel a little nostalgic for all the couples who have shared their wedding days with me this year.
This weekend I photographed some of the most lovely couples of my career! My weekend started on Friday with Veronica and Ellen at the Steele Hill Resort in Sanbornton, NH. This was a wedding 28 years in the making.
Veronica and Ellen have been together for 28 years and since DOMA was over-turned, they wanted a legal marriage. At first they thought they would just elope to a marriage equality State (like New Hampshire), but when they shared that plan, many of their family and friends wanted to join them in support.
Veronica and Ellen were visibly overwhelmed by joy at their wedding. Veronica kept saying, “I just can’t believe we are really here, celebrating our wedding.”
Carron and Charlie are avid hikers, so the Sunset Hill House was an obvious choice for their wedding. But they didn’t stop there. They included a trip up the tram to the top of Cannon Mountain and a beautiful view of Franconia ridge. Such a sweet couple who said on many occasions how wonderful it is to get a second chance. Many, many years of happiness CC.
And for all those who want a cake like theirs, it is the one and only Jacques Fine European Pastry that pulls off these editable works of art.
