Destination Wedding – Alyson’s Orchard, NH

A beautiful sunset at Alyson's Orchard.

As a New England wedding photographer, I am extremely fortunate to witness amazing weddings in some of the most beautiful settings. Alyson’s Orchard is up there on my favorite New England destination weddings list for their stunning views of the orchards, the picturesque town of Walpole, the Connecticut River Valley, the serene spring-fed ponds, and my favorite – the rolling fields. There’s no shortage of backdrops to capture the love of a couple on their wedding day!

When Kim and Barry approached me to photograph their wedding and engagement I was excited about their venue choice to say the least! I knew we’d be a great fit when they explained their proposal was on Mt. Monadnock and they wanted to do a climbing engagement session there!

Here are some of my favorite images from their wedding. Enjoy!
