April & Ryan

April and Ryan got married on one of the most beautiful Saturday’s of this summer.  Somehow they dialed in just the right mix of sun & puffy white clouds, accompanied by a gentle breeze off the water.  Their ceremony and reception, which were held at the Wentworth-by-the-Sea Country Club, were absolutely spectacular.  What was more fun was bumping into two other couples who I’ve worked with, or am going to work with!  I love feeling like I know everyone already.  April and Ryan could not have been more welcoming and as a result we had a blast photographing their wedding.  Here are a couple of my favorites from the day:

The radiant bride got ready at the Sise Inn in downtown Portsmouth, NH.


I just love the smile on Ryan’s face.  And check out that view!


Now you know why he was smiling!


See what I mean about the day?


April’s bridesmaids were so cute – smiling and whispering throughout the ceremony.


I just love this picture.  Such real emotions and reactions!  So cute!


After the ceremony we ducked away to take some more intimate shots (one of which I shared the other day).  I couldn’t resist using the veil – the wind kept playing tricks with it.  These two just fell right into these moments naturally.


The Wentworth CC is clearly a gorgeous location.


April and Ryan had a starfish theme which you can see on this simple and elegant cake.

Great moment from the dance floor.

After the dances, we snuck out again quickly to catch a couple of shots as the sun went down.  I was fortunate enough to have been joined by Derrick Morin of Morin Photography, who so graciously helped out for the day.  This one was caught by Derick as I was working the other angle.  Great catch Derrick!

One of my favorites from the day.  Don’t they look good!?!


As you can see from the series below, April and Ryan are loved by their friends!
