It was my last wedding of the season and what a super couple and venue to end the year with! Kelsey and Brent chose Indian Head Resort up in Lincoln, NH to celebrate their wedding and it was a fitting choice for a December wedding. Sitting up in the NH White Mountains, Indian Head has amazing views from the reception space overlooking Shadow Lake and mountains with floor to ceiling windows. The grounds are always nicely kept although this time of year there was snow on the ground but this is kind of exciting! Most weddings are during the warmer months so having something different to work with provides a challenge and some photographic ideas otherwise impossible. Falling snow.. magic in the air!
The girls were getting ready across the road at Yia Yia's House. When I arrived everyone was in good spirits despite the snow and chill in the air. Flannel shirts was the theme but their eventual dresses were a grey/blue blend which really fit the theme of the wedding. After some final hair and makeup touch-ups it was time for the dress to go on. Kelsey looked amazing! The dress was a good choice for her.
I had trusty Samantha with me for this one and she was busy covering the guys getting ready while I was with the girls. There was no first look planned so it was on to the ceremony after some quick shots outside with the girls first.
The ceremony was pretty short and sweet then we headed out in the snow for some bridal party shots. The snow was on and off but came down pretty heavy while we were out there. Luckily it wasn't a super wet snow so it worked out well to get some "winter wonderland" type photos. It was challenging but everyone was game and that's always more than half the battle!
Kelsey and Brent with with different types of cookies in jars for the table centerpieces. Their thought was it would make people mingle and get to know each other while collecting a variety to take home. A really creative way to get people to interact with each other and get both families talking.
After the intros, first dance and toasts the party began lead by DJ Dave Lynch and Indian Head's always amazing Jennifer Aruda! I hope you enjoy some photos from the final Wilton Brothers Photography wedding of 2019! :)
