Nicole+Tom | Flag Hill Wedding | Lee, NH

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. NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0001 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0002 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0003 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0004 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0005 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0006 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0007 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0008NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0009 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0010 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0011 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.  NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0012 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0013 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0014 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0015 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0016 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0017 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.  NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0018 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0019 After a quick toast and a little dancing it was time to head on over to Flag Hill!NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0020 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0021Nicole 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.  NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0024NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0023NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0027NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0025Nicole and Tom took a few minutes chatting and just relishing in the fact that they were getting married in just a short while!NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0026NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0028NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0029The 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). NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0030NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0031NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0032I love these quiet and intimate moments that Drew captured by shooting through the vines.  NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0033NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0034NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0035NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0036After 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!NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0037NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0038NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0039NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0040NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0041NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0042We finished up with portraits and then Nicole headed to the getting ready space at Flag Hill for some last minute preparations.  NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0048NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0049NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0050NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0051Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony.  Everyone found their seats beneath the gorgeous trees at the ceremony site.  NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0052NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0053NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0054 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0055NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0056 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0057NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0058NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0059NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0060 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0061NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0062 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0063NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0064NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0065 NT_Flag Hill Wedding_0066Nicole 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.

Chris+Mike | Wedding | Bristol RI

We spent a lovely warm day in August celebrating two people we love.  Mike and Chris are good friends of ours and when it was time for them to plan their wedding we offered to shoot the wedding as a gift.  We started the day off getting ready at a friends house.  It was a rare treat to shoot the getting ready together.  Usually Andrew and I split up at that time.
