Madeleine & Nick : New Hampshire Wedding Photography

In April I had a wonderful time photographing the wedding of Madeleine & Nick in New Hampshire.  

Maddie & Nick actually both went to college together~ with Nick just being a year ahead of Maddie, but they didn't start dating until they went out one evening with mutual friends and enjoyed getting to know each other better.

I started the morning at the couple's apartment where Maddie & her girls were getting ready.  When I arrived Maddie was putting the finishing touches on their wedding cake~ she did a great job!

Best part of making your own wedding cake~ enjoying left over frosting of course!


A spray of perfume

And a touch of mascara

Then it was time to get in the dress

I took a few minutes to take some photos of Maddie before I headed to the ceremony site


At the church I met up with Nick

The mom's lighting the unity candles at the beginning of the ceremony


Seriously~ I always love little kids when the talk to the bride ~ a real life princess

After the ceremony we headed to the reception site~ Candia Woods Golf Course to take some formal photos

Reception details

I am loving all of the neat guest book ideas that are out there now~ this was a favorite

First dance as husband and wife ~ to Louis Armstrong's "A Kiss to Build a  Dream On"

Both Best Man & Maid of Honor gave sweet toasts

A little fun game of how well the couple knows each other was played as guests were finishing dinner

After cutting the delicous looking cake it was on to parent dances and then a rocking reception

 A great group of St A's Alum

Always fun to see my past couple's spiining around the dance floor ~ here is Mo & Matt

A final slow song to end out the evening

Oh Madeleine & Nick~ I truly adore the both of you and I adore the love you have for each other!  All my best in your future happiness!!  Thanks you for letting me share the day with such an amazing group of people!

@ Nicole ~ It was an Allue dress~ purchased at Madeleine's Daughter in Portsmouth. It was gorgeous and looked like it was made for her!
