The Preserve at Chocorua New Hampshire Wedding: Wendy & Steven
November 15, 2017
Wendy and Steven met through some mutual friends at a mini reunion weekend. Unknowingly, Steven complimented Wendy on her hat without knowing that it was one of the best compliments that he could give. You see, Wendy loves hats! After their first date on New Year's Eve, they would see each other almost every weekend for a year and a half - even though Steven lived in New Jersey.
It was really fun getting to know them and photographing their engagement session on Fan Pier, water taxi, and the Esplanade! I love adventures in the city!
The wedding at The Preserve at Chocorua was an fairytale dream, a weekend filled with family and friends spending quality time together. Absolutely magical! It's located just on the edge of the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and October is the most beautiful time of the year there. It was actually so warm that the leaves just barely started turning. The wedding day itself was really warm! As we left for the first look on picturesque Narrows Bridge, a few droplets fell. Thankfully it held off and rained only briefly on the drive back from the ceremony.
We were so sad to learn that this past weekend, The Barn where the reception took place tragically burned down to the ground. Thankfully nobody was hurt! The photos you see of the big red barn, the cocktail hour on the patio outside, and the entire reception inside are all some of the last photos taken of these beautiful buildings! We surely hope the owners plan to rebuild this amazing venue in the near future - we would love to photograph more weddings there!
Enjoy these beautiful photos and let us know what your favorites are!
Wasn't that spectacular?! It was amazing to be there to capture it all! Congrats Wendy and Steve!
