Briana + Daniel
This wedding was a blast! Bri and Danny are the most loving and laid back couple I've had the pleasure of photographing. B + D met in college and hit it off pretty quickly! Although they didn't start dating for a few years there was instant connection. They started out in New England and then moved across the U.S. where Danny eventually proposed (while skiing in a blizzard!) These two share a love for adventure and skiing so it was a no-brainer that they would tie the knot on a mountain top.
Getting Ready at the Woodstock Farmhouse
Just a short 5 minutes from Loon Mountain is a beautiful farmhouse nestled into downtown Woodstock, New Hampshire. This venue is absolutely breathtaking! The modern farmhouse look inside is very clean and photographs beautifully. Outside of the farmhouse you can enjoy the serenity of the White Mountains along the eastern branch of the Pemi river. Along the river is where B + D decided to have their first look and private vows. I absolutely loved this part of their wedding day! Reading vows privately to each other allowed them fully express their love and commitment without the pressure of speaking in front of all of their guests.
October Mountain Top Ceremony
B + D tied the knot on the summit of Loon Mountain on October 2nd. Their combined love for adventure, skiing and mountains brought them back "home" to New England for this mountaintop ceremony. We rode the gondola to the summit taking in all of the foliage views on the way up. The ceremony location was breathtaking! Red, yellow and green trees made for a perfect fall scene.
Mountain top wedding portraits
I could have stayed at the top of this mountain with Bri and Danny ALL day long! We had the perfect amount of fall color and B + D were soooo easy to photograph! After about an hour of wandering around on top of the mountain we finally found our way back down to the Octagon Lodge where the reception was about to take place. Once B + D were introduced to the reception the party really started! After a long day of formalities everyone was ready to finally dance the night away!
