I remember meeting Kim years ago at a New England Photography meeting. She was bold, fun, and I knew right away we would get along fantastically. How could I not?
I had a brand new fellow photographer buddy to chat with and share ideas. It wasn’t long before we were attending a conference, in Vegas, for learning…of course.
We learned that it’s not good to miss your flight, because we might be stuck in Vegas for a few extra days.
At the time I was very worried as I hadn’t met her fiancé just yet and I know he was missing her badly.
When we got back I had the opportunity to meet him and realized not only is he as sweet and understanding as Kim had told me, but quite the character. Mike was a hoot!
Spending time with the two of them together… well I certainly could barely wait a whole year after I was asked to photograph their wedding!
Last we saw them was their Engagement Shoot last winter! What a blast. After the shoot when we got back to NH (We had a dance off – he won!)
I knew the wedding was going to top everything.
Mike supervised the schedule of fun as Kim organized every last detail…
We began the day with the ladies all getting ready and sipping champagne at Three Chimney’s Inn in Durham, NH.
Such a gorgeous place for the bride to relax and get ready!
I loved the special touches on Kim’s bouquet with the image of her father. I know he was so proud of you and Mike that day as he watched from above.
Gorgeous. Just gorgeous.
The handsome group of gentlemen got ready quickly and were quite anxious to get the party started.
Most definitely ready to rock their socks off!
This also has to be one of the most exciting first looks ever. The end. You guys win hands down!
After that emotional first look we took off for the vineyard at Flag Hill Winery in Lee, NH.
Wohoo! Married at last!
After we got the traditional family photos done it was time to head to the Distillery! I couldn’t help myself from creating this fantastic Mike Montage…
And one of my absolute favorites…
The distillery was so much fun! We could have spent the day in there! But it was most definitely time to Rock the party and celebrate with family and friends!
I have to give a great shout out here to Brad of Harrington Flowers in Londonderry, NH. Not only did he he do an amazing job coordinating all the gorgeous yellow flower arrangements he gave them an extra special touch to math the decor that Kim and Mike designed themselves! Rock on Brad, you truly are the best Floral artist! I’d like to think I had a hand in it, but I merely was only requested to save all my wine corks for you to design with, per Kim’s request 😉 Amazing work!
One of the best entrances ever…
Kim and Mike you are truly blessed with great friends and family!
As sun began to set we snuck off into the vineyard…
As we entered the room after the gorgeous sunset walk through the vineyard, Joey from Main Event had the party kicking into high gear, starting with a dance contest judged by Kim and Mike!
A rocking DJ and a crowd ready to celebrate…you’ve only seen the half of it!
Then a special 30th birthday dance and dedication to a special friend…it doesn’t get better than this!

I also have to say a special thank you to my talented second shooter, and lighting assistant, Nadya you got some rocking stuff!
