Krista and Ryan tied the knot with their Nashua Courtyard Wedding!  The Nashua Courtyard’s Event Center is a great venue to host a New Hampshire wedding!  The location affords newlyweds a variety of options for photographs with plenty of local parks and scenic areas.  The Courtyard itself has beautiful backdrops for photos, so you really don’t have to leave the area!

Preparation

This fun-loving couple started their wedding preparations in a suite at the Courtyard.  Couples just don’t realize how convenient it is to prepare close to your ceremony & reception.  The bridesmaids focused on all of the little details.  The rings were photographed, flowers, and of course the beautiful wedding dress.  The men were focused on a heated video game tournament a few rooms down the hall.  This is where it definitely pays to have two photographers.  I was quite happy to spend the morning with Ryan and Groomsmen!

The First Look

Krista and Ryan decided to go with a First Look.  We chose  Greeley Park in Nashua.  A short five-minute drive from the Courtyard, Greeley Park offers spacious areas, plenty of stonework, and enough privacy for a First Look.  Have we mentioned that we are huge fans of the First Look???  As a result, everything goes so much smoother on your wedding day with a First Look.  The Bride & Groom are so much more relaxed as well.  The First Look becomes one of the most memorable moments of your wedding day!  Ryan and Krista had an amazing First Look to share together & then we moved into photos of the bridal party.  On the ride back to the venue, Ryan thanked me for recommending the First Look!

Ceremony and Reception

Back the Courtyard, we headed over to their Event Center.  Anna Addiss the coordinator had the place running like a clock.  The Bridal Party were shuffled away to private rooms as the guests started to arrive.  This is a where an experienced coordinator really shines — getting the guests seated at starting the ceremony.  The whole process was as smooth as silk!  The Bride and Groom exchanged their personal vows and tied the knot!  We had plenty of time before the Reception for some additional family photos too!

Now it was time to start the party!  A Main Event was DJing the event, so the party got started fast!  The guests enjoyed a great meal & the dancing went late into the night!  We did manage to sneak Krista and Ryan away for a Night Shot outside by the Courtyard’s Firepit.  What a great shot!  We are so fortunate to work with a great couple like Krista and Ryan.  You guys are great and we really enjoyed capturing your special day in photographs!  Here are a few teasers from your portfolio!
