NH Fall Foliage Wedding in the NH White Mountains {Mt. Washington Hotel Wedding} Brittany & Anthony

I am so.behind.on.blogging. Do you know why? TIME. I would rather be shooting and working hard for my Client’s on the back-end delivering their product (images) in a  timely fashion than writing. I was there,so were they, and their Guests: We all know it was an amazing, special day. This is in the top 3 of my favorite dress shots of all time…..Here is the proof: Thank you Brittany & Anthony. You were fun, relaxed, and so easy to photograph. Thank you! Congrats!

Mt. Washington Hotel Wedding: NH Columbus Day Weekend: NH Wedding Photography; Jewell Terrace Wedding Bretton Woods

October 10th is an awesome day to get married -we should know. We celebrated 11 years of wedded bliss at Julia & Steve’s wedding. It doesn’t get much better than this time of year in Bretton Woods, NH. The first dusting of snow fell the night prior, so the mix of the snow and foliage was epic. Julia (142 of 68)

Mt. Washington Hotel South Veranda Wedding {NH Wedding} Derick & Ali : Bretton Woods Wedding

I had a TON of fun planning the logistics of Derick & Ali’s Mt. Washington Hotel wedding with Ali’s Mom. We were in contact for almost a year before their big day. When we arrived Ali & Derick were both super gracious and friendly, both seemingly not nervous at all! We arrived to some gorgeous bouquets by Sarah Severence of Ivy & Aster Floral Design. 

Horta (100 of 50) Derick and his Groomsmen were clearly not nervous at all. They were all about having fun all day long – Derick had us in stitches.Horta (105 of 50) Horta (110 of 50) Derick & Ali definitely win the award for the shortest ceremony of the year :) It was still just perfect for the day.

Mt. Washington Hotel Jewell Terrace Wedding with a *RAINBOW* for Mark & Lauren’s NH Wedding

I “met” Mark & Lauren just a few months before their wedding via Skype. Man I love Skype. We chatted about their wedding which was in the very early stages of planning while they were nestled in their Brooklyn Apartment. Mark & Lauren met while cycling on the Brooklyn Bridge; so their cake-topper will make sense when you see it. Both now math teachers in Brooklyn, Mark is a former Wall Street Executive and Lauren left the world of Management to become a Teacher. Their students are clearly very, very lucky. We bonded quickly with Mark over his love of skiing the White Mountains, and I know we will all connect this winter in the powder in the woods!Lauren (100 of 1) Me: “Lauren I found a really cool door with great light; want to walk up three flights of stairs?” LOVE this girl! Lauren (102 of 1) Lauren (104 of 1) More amazing flowers by Ivy & Aster Floral Design. Soft, muted and perfectly matched to the day. Lauren (106 of 1) Lauren (107 of 1) Lauren (108 of 1)

Oh when we arrived at the Hotel to get ready there was a major hail & electrical storm. Then the sun came out which creating a pretty amazing rainbow over Mark & Lauren’s ceremony site, the Jewell Terrace. Lauren (109 of 1) Lauren (110 of 1)

RAINBOW!!!!! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSS!Lauren (112 of 1)

 

Mark’s father is a medicine man and he played this incredible 2-pronged wooden flute. Just beautiful.

Father Larry Camerlin delivers the most wonderful ceremonies; he is versatile, and every ceremony is perfectly personalized. Lauren (114 of 1) Lauren (115 of 1) - Copy Its was HOT and BRIGHT but everyone wanted this image when the clouds cleared. Lauren (116 of 1) - Copy Lauren (119 of 1)

Mount Washington Hotel Wedding: {NH Weddings} Matt & Janette

A Family Affair….. (Please scroll below to see Janette & Matt’s Album Design).

We shot this lovely 35-person wedding this past Wednesday-what a treat! Jackpot weather, uncrowded vistas and grounds. A stunning day on the South Vernada  in the fresh mountain air celebrating the love of Janette & Matt! We were thrilled to be a part of it. :)Janette-108 Janette-112 Janette-107 Janette-105 Janette-117 Janette’s gorgeous bouquet is by Ivy & Aster Floral Design. Janette-118 Janette-133 Janette-132 Janette-136 Janette-138 Janette-140 Janette-120 Janette-123 Janette-131
Janette-127

Matt’s Family has a place on the “big lake” where I grew up so we quickly bonded over that. LOVED these pewter ornaments they gave as favors. Janette-124 Janette-104 Janette-101

I recently read an article in Yankee Magazine about this mural painted just above the Hallway to the right of the check-in desk. Mrs. Stickney, the wife of the original builder/owner of the Mt. Washington Hotel, would stand at this balcony and watch all of the Ladies come down the Grand Staircase to ensure she was the best dressed prior to entering the dining area.

While we spend quite a bit of time in this building, I am still exploring and discovering new secrets at every visit. Congrats to Matt & Janette!
