New Hampshire Wedding Photographer | Brewster Academy {Alex & Rachel}

Several words come to mind when thinking of Alex and Rachel… elegant, graceful, romantic… the top three ;-) But somehow, they manage to combine those qualities with a casual demeanor that made spending the day with this sweet couple an absolute treat. Rachel’s bridesmaids were all of her best friends since childhood {<3}, and Alex’s best man was his younger brother. The boys got ready at the Wolfeboro Inn while Rachel was just down the street at the lovely home of a family friend. My little photographer heart was so happy exploring the vintage decor throughout the house and using it as a backdrop for photos. Rachel’s makeup was done by the very talented Making Faces, and her stunning bouquets {including my favorite – calla lily’s!} were designed by Linda’s Flowers of Wolfeboro. When everyone was dressed and ready for some serious wedding action, we climbed aboard Molly the Trolley and traveled through the quaint Lake Winnipesaukee town to Brewster Academy. Their lakeside ceremony was very special, beginning with Rachel’s totally awesome entrance to “I’m gonna be {500 miles}”, followed by some readings from Calvin and Hobbes. After the ever-important “I do’s”, we made a quick trip to the Wolfeboro Town Docks for some formal portraits. We then returned to Brewster Academy for some photos at the boat house, and we finished just in time to avoid the rain. Rachel and Alex’s tent reception was nothing short of entertaining, and I can’t say enough good things about their wedding band {The Jazzlanders}. The night was full of dancing, laughing, and reminiscing. I was thrilled to be a part of it all. Thanks for having me along, Alex and Rachel!Bride getting her makeup done near a window Bride getting makeup done Bridesmaids watching as bride gets makeup doneBeautiful unique wedding dress hanging in a windowbride shoes under wedding dress on vintage couchbride and bridesmaid necklaces hanging from hooks Bride and bridesmaid shoes Gold and white gold wedding ringsCalla lily's and bright bridesmaid bouquetsgroom tying his tie black and white Groom and best man getting ready Maid of honor taking wedding dress out of the bagBridesmaid feet and hand on hip Bride putting on her wedding dressMaid of honor helping bride put on her dress Smiling bride and bridesmaids candid Bridesmaid adjusting bride's wedding dress Bride standing in window putting on earringBride smiling holding calla lily bouquetBride smiling holding calla lily bouquet Bride smiling in front of mirrorWide angle shot of bride standing in hallway Full length bride standing in windowBride walking to trolley Bridesmaids laughing on trolleyBottom half of bride's dress sitting on trolley Bride and bridesmaids sitting on a trolleyBlack and white bride laughing while stepping off of trolley Bride being covered by an umbrellaBrewster Academy wedding program Wolfeboro NH Wedding CeremonyGroom smiling as bride walks down the aisleBride walking down the aisle Bride and groom holding hands during wedding ceremony Lake Winnipesaukee Wedding ceremony readings Wolfeboro NHWide angle view of wedding ceremony on Lake WinnipesaukeeBlack and white bride and groom first kiss in front of Lake Winnipesaukee Bride and groom first kiss Lake Winnipesaukee Bride and groom exit wedding ceremony at Lake WinnipesaukeeGroom and bride share a moment alone Groom and bride walk to trolley holding handsGuests take a picture of bride and groomBride and groom pose on Wolfeboro Town DocksBride and groom hold hands walking on docks at Lake Winnipesaukee Newlyweds kiss in front of boat house at Brewster Academy Bride and groom cuddle in front of boat house at Brewster AcademyBoat house at Brewster Academy Groom and best man in front of boat house at Brewster AcademyBride and bridesmaids standing on dock at Brewster Academy Bride and bridesmaids at Lake Winnipesaukee Wedding party on docks at Brewster AcademyBride and groom clasp hands Bridal party escaping rainSea glass wedding guest book Wedding Reception Details Orange and Blue Polka dot wedding cake detailsBride and groom embrace arm in arm outside reception tent Groom and bride first dance under tent Bride and groom first dance black and white Wedding Band playing during first dance Groom twirling bride during first danceBride and groom listen to wedding toastsBride and groom toast Wedding reception dancing Wedding reception dancing under tentGroom and bride kiss in front of wedding cake Brewster Academy wedding evening tent
