A Mount Washington Hotel Wedding – Brooke & Daniel

Brooke and Daniel were married this past October at the Omni Mount Washington Hotel, one of my all-time favorite New Hampshire wedding venues. There are few venues as spectacular as the Mount Washington, especially in the Fall when the mountain sides are exploding with color. It’s always a treat to be there during that time of year, and it’s always made better when working with a couple as laid back and cool as Brooke and Daniel.

I first met up with Daniel as he was getting ready for the wedding. The guys — and gal — were relaxing, toasting and generally having a good time. I then moved over to Brooke’s room, where she had not yet arrived. I took the quiet moment to shoot some details before connecting with Brooke as she too began to put on her finishing touches. Brooke and Daniel chose to have a first look prior to their vows, and the beautiful foliage in Crawford Notch made the perfect backdrop for this moment.

Their ceremony took place on the spectacular Jewel Terrace, on the backside of the hotel, overlooking Mount Washington. As far as I am concerned, no venue in the region has a more stunning ceremony spot. I honestly could sit out there and stair at the mountains for hours! There ceremony included the typical readings and exchange of rings, but it also had a lot of much more atypical belly laughs.

Following the ceremony and cocktails, guests moved into the Grand Ballroom for the party. A great time was had by all, including myself. Here’s a glimpse at some of their day…

Thank you, Brooke and Daniel, for having me along to photograph your special day. Great working with the following people:
