A Thompson Inn Wedding – Anna & Chris
April 3, 2017
Anna and Chris were married last summer in Durham, New Hampshire at the Thompson Inn & Cyderhouse. Similar to many August days, this one was hot and muggy, but I could not think of a nicer place to be than on top of a hill, with a summer breeze, surrounded by lush summer gardens. On top of that, I was spending the day with great people. Not only Anna and Chris, but also past clients Chelsey and Tom. Yes, it was a good day indeed!
The Thompson house is a brand new wedding venue in Durham, NH. Set to open fully during the summer of 2017, this was one of the first weddings to take place on the property. At the time of Anna and Chris’ wedding, the Cyderhouse barn was still under construction, but it’s going to be spectacular when completed. Ann and Chris instead, celebrated under a tent in the back lawn, with their ceremony under the large maples trees adjacent to it.
I met up with Anna and Chris just prior to their first look on the porch of the Inn. We took time for a few portraits and their family pictures before the ceremony. As far as ceremonies go, they don’t come much more more heartfelt than this one. From Chris’ tears as Anna walked down the aisle, to their hand-written vows, there was nothing canned about it. Following there ceremony, everyone moved over to the huge wrap-around porch of the inn for cocktails and cheer before moving into the tent to a good ‘ole fashioned lobster bake.
As I often try to do, Anna and Chris obliged for some sunset portraits. We were treated to an incredibly vivid purple sky that evening. Back under the tent, the music kicked off and dancing began. Here are some of my favorite images from the day…
Thank you Anna and Chris for having me at your wedding. Great work by the following folks:
