Southern New Hampshire Fall Wedding Photographer
If there was ever a couple in need of adventure wedding photographers, Courtney and Dave are them! They brought every ounce of their vibrant personalities to their Southern New Hampshire Fall Wedding which was a fun filled autumn celebration.
Courtney grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire. Always a body in motion from running track, playing soccer, traveling, eating new foods, her brain was an equal match always challenging herself to learn and grow. First at Trinity High School, then Boston College and lastly at Harvard’s Masters of Biology program.
Dave, a life long New Hampshire resident, matches Courtney’s sense of adventure and infuses a bit of nerdiness! From Atkinson, he studied computer engineering at UNH and now works in software for Liberty Mutual. No novice to video games, Red Sox nation, or a good beer, Dave stays true to his sense of adventure with travels and fitness.
The duo met on OK Cupid while Courtney was in Cambridge. Dave left the details of their first meeting up to Courtney, and she nervously choose Book and Bar in Portsmouth, NH (one of our personal favorites!) They chatted for hours, seemingly hitting it off until a band came in to set up. Dave “abruptly” ended the date, leaving Courtney thinking it must not have gone so well. Dave was simply having a guy moment and figured it would be too hard to talk over the band. Courtney’s fear was put to rest with the second date.
The fun then quickly began. From enjoying cross fit, to hiking excursions, walks with Kepler (their Australian Shepard mix), paleo cooking, movie nights, and a pallet garden experiment they were basically inseparable.
While Courtney owned a house in North Hampton, she was spending all her time in Nottingham at Dave’s. It soon became obvious that she really ought to be living there, along with her three cats. Selling the Seacoast house commenced.
The whirlwind picked up steam and before they knew it they were on vacation in Northern California, touring through San Francisco then Calaveras State Park. It was under the giant sequoias that Dave proposed, catapulting their relationship into an entirely new and exciting realm. They finished off their journey in Tahoe with a hot air balloon ride a thousand feet above the ski resort.
It was no hidden fact that their relationship seemed to be in the fast lane, and while loved ones were naturally excited, more than one or two boldly asked if Courtney was pregnant! Well, the answer to that was “No”, but it certainly may have a different response in the near future!
We met these two in their hometown at a vegan restaurant less than four months prior to wedding day. Our fun lasted well past lunch and resumed a few weeks later in Portsmouth for a fun filled engagement session. We walked the town and re-visted Book & Bar. After which we shamelessly knocked them off their paleo wagon with sushi and ice cream!
Their wedding proved to be just as great an adventure with amazingly loving friends, proud family and fall colors surrounding the Woodbound Inn and Hidden Hills Estate.
Friends pulled out all the stops with the most strange yet enjoyable dancing we’ve ever witnessed (think interpretive dance in very slow motion), infiltration of photo booth props as though they were extensions of their personalities, and a band with some serious energy and positive vibes!
Courtney and Dave continued their adventures for nearly three weeks in New Zealand, dodging earthquakes and experiencing all the natural beauty and activity the country has to offer. While they may be back to “normal” life, we fully expect to hear of many more whirlwind adventures, we are not so secretly hoping to be in on some of them!
