Quite a few of our couples are from out of the area and come back to New England to have their wedding in their hometown, near their friends and family or just because they love the natural beauty that resides here. Occasionally, they book us over the phone or Internet and the first time we meet face-to-face is on their wedding day. This was the case with Tim and Kim. They live in Las Vegas, but have roots here in New Hampshire. Because of the distance and busy schedules, we weren’t able to meet them until the very day they were getting married. Let us say, that despite never having met us before, they welcomed us to their special day with an abundance of kindness and warmth and any feelings of unfamiliarity between us quickly dissipated! Needless to say, this made photographing their beautiful day a joy and we believe that joy shines through in these images. This was also our first time shooting at the Bedford Village Inn and the day went smoothly thanks to the friendly professionalism exhibited by the staff there.
The day was punctuated by the special bond Kim and her family has, her Sisters were all bridesmaids and kept things lively and fun. Also ever-present, was the camaraderie Tim shared with his groomsman. I unwittingly kind of broke up a practical joke that would’ve made for an interesting situation during the ceremony when I asked Tim’s best man Gary for the rings to photograph them. What I, as well as he, didn’t know, was that the rings had been swiped from his jacket! Have to say, it was fun watching him desperately search for them until Tim let him off the hook…I have a great picture of that, which I’m pretty sure is going to appear on Facebook shortly 🙂 Anyway, congrats to you, Kim & Tim! We were honored that you chose Birch Blaze to help you hang on to the great memories of this day!
