We absolutely fell in love with Nicole and Tom and their wedding day was spectacular day filled with so much love from all their family and friends. We started the day getting ready in Portsmouth, NH. I spent some time with Nicole and her bridesmaids getting ready while Drew spent the morning with Tom and the groomsman. I loved all the sweet details that Nicole’s mom had through out the room. It was filled with so many sweet touches. Nicole’s brother Justin was her Man of Honor (her other 3 brothers were also on her side). He was by her side while she was getting ready. How gorgeous is Nicole!?! She looked striking in her lace Maggie Sottero bridal gown. I loved the sheer lace cap sleeves and the low back. After a quick toast and a little dancing it was time to head on over to Flag Hill! Nicole and Tom opted to do a first look before the ceremony. We set it all up in between the grape vines of the vineyard. It was a perfect secluded spot. Nicole and Tom took a few minutes chatting and just relishing in the fact that they were getting married in just a short while!The vineyards allow for such sweet romantic moments. This is why we love shooting at Flag Hill (along with how great the staff is to work with). I love these quiet and intimate moments that Drew captured by shooting through the vines. After their first look we took a bit of time to shoot some photos with their family. How cute are Nicole and Tom’s nephews. The three boys are the cutest and their outfits were adorable. I wanted to take them home with me!We finished up with portraits and then Nicole headed to the getting ready space at Flag Hill for some last minute preparations. Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony. Everyone found their seats beneath the gorgeous trees at the ceremony site. Nicole and Tom’s ceremony was filled with lots of love and sweet moments highlighting how they met and fell in love at the final game of the Stanley Cup finals in Boston and how much they love each other. I love when couples have personalized ceremonies.
After portraits it was time to head to the reception. Again the Nicole and Tom filled the tent with so many sweet details. There was so much to photograph. The centerpieces were absolutely gorgeous. Cymbidium Floral did an amazing job with all the florals!Nicole and Tom were surprised when they were introduced and all of their guests had customized Bruins themed rally towels. It made for an amazing entrance!
Of course when you get married at a vineyard I’m going to put your rings on some of the grapes! That’s a given. While the sun was setting we snuck out for some more portraits. After dinner was served it was time to dance. The dance floor was packed all night long. Tom told me he loved to dance when I met with them at their initial consultation and him and the rest of their wedding guests didn’t disappoint! I love a good dance party! Nicole picked the date for the wedding because it was a full moon. We snuck out to grab a few portraits with the moon while everyone was having a great time on the dance floor.
Nicole’s brother had a special surprise for Nicole and Tom. Due to them meeting at one of the Stanley Cup finals games, the Bruins hold a special place in their hearts. Nicole’s brother arranged to have the Bruins mascot, Blades, surprise them!
It was an amazing moment when Blades came out!
Thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding day! We had an amazing time, you two are both absolute sweethearts.
