The Family Farm Wedding

Jocelyn and Nate knew they wanted a comfortable farm wedding in their hometown of Keene, NH. What they didn’t anticipate was the unpredictable weather that Mother Nature decided to present them with on their special day. This couple knew that nothing was going to stop the party, not even the thunderstorms that brought four inches of rain and hail! The venue they chose held a special place in Nate’s heart, because he grew up in one of the houses located on the farm property.  They held their ceremony in a cow barn, and Jocelyn rode into the ceremony in a beautiful, red, antique car. Despite the weather, the day continued on with lots of laughter and joy from all of their friends and family, which is exactly how they had imagined their wedding to be. Special memories from their day included a sleepover the night before with all the bridesmaids, the intense thunderstorms, and the fact that the DJ saved the cake from all the rain! Their day was exciting, passionate and adventurous, three words that describe this couple perfectly.

As a photographer, the challenge of rapidly changing weather makes the job all that more interesting. In this case, the stormy skies brought out the lush, green farm landscapes and highlighted the unique moments that make for precious memories.
