Paige and Brandon were married in the fall for their destination wedding in Nashua New Hampshire. I was delighted when, after hiring me for their engagement session in Tucson (https://www.jacquelynnbuck.com/paige-brandon-engaged-on-a-mountain/ and https://www.jacquelynnbuck.com/paige-brandon-engaged-just-like-knapps-castle/ and https://www.jacquelynnbuck.com/paige-brandon-downtown-tucson-engagement-session/) they hired me to do their destination wedding!
The stage was set for a beautiful, but cold, day in October. The bride and groom both got ready at the hotel associated with the Nashua Evert Center and the bridal suite was enormous! There were lots of special moments during the early hours, to include a tear-filled first look with Paige and her father.
Paige and Brandon opted not to do a first look, so the tears were flowing as Paige walked down the aisle.
Family was very important to this couple – Paige had a first look with her father, and a first dance with not just her dad but her mom as well. Brandon’s father presided over the ceremony. And the couple also happened to get married on the anniversary of Brandon’s parents, so his mom and dad shared a very special anniversary dance at the reception.
After the ceremony, I took full advantage of the fall colors, which were out in full force and made for a stunning backdrop for the family and bridal party photos. I scouted ahead and found this beautiful open field of tall fall grasses that I knew would light up at sunset – and it was a spectacular location for the bride and groom photos!
There were tons of antics at the reception, to include several of the bridal party changing into super hero costumes towards the end of the night. They definitely were all enjoying themselves on the dance floor!
I love a fantastic destination wedding, especially when it looks like this one!
