Carolyn & Ben: A Mount Washington Hotel Wedding // NH Wedding Photographer

On Sunday 9/2 I was again at the Mount Washington Hotel — having photographed Sasha and Ryan’s wedding there the day before — for Carolyn and Ben’s wedding. I always say that every wedding is unique unto itself, and this could not have been more true on this day. I’ve been to the Mount Washington Hotel a number of times this year, but on this day just about every aspect was different, which was super cool! So, I am very excited to share Carolyn and Ben’s wonderfully unique wedding day…

I love the White Mountains. So pretty…

A few details. Mount Washington and a beautiful wedding dress…

Debony from Debony Salon in Jackon, NH did Carolyn’s makeup. She looked great!

I loved this smile all day long…

Down the road, David was hanging out with Ben and his groomsmen…

I love this image on the left. Great capture David!

And a few portraits also by David as Ben waited for Carolyn and the ladies…

There they are! Helping the guys with their flowers…

Before heading to the ceremony, we paused for a few pictures with Mount Madison in the background…

And we’re off…

Back at the Hotel…

Carolyn designed all of the stationary for the day. These program/hang tags were so cool. Flowers were by Carrie of Dutch Bloemen Winkle. I always love Carrie’s arrangements…

The ceremony was in the Conservancy.

A great image by David during the ceremony…

I didn’t catch the “joke” but everyone else did!

Ben’s sister…

MARRIED!

Following the ceremony and formal and family group photos we headed out to the South Lawn for some portraits…

Back inside, David was busy documenting the Grand Ballroom…

Introductions…

Were followed by the best man’s toast…

And then Carolyn’s Maid of Honor’s toast…

First dance…

As dinner was being served we snuck out for a few more portraits. I always like the Jewel Terrace…

Following dinner their beautiful cake, designed by Carolyn and made by the Hotel bakery, was cut…

And finally parent dances. I love these moments on the wedding day.

Then the party kicked off with the Tim Theriault Band out of Portsmouth! They rocked!

Lots of dancing…

The band rocked, and even Carolyn’s dad got up on stage to strum a few cords on the bass…

And finally, Carolyn and Ben added a photo booth to their reception mayhem. That’s always fun!

Thank you Carolyn and Ben for including me in your day. Such a cool day! And thanks as always to David for always awesome images and hard work!
