Berry Farm Bliss | Chris and Shannon’s Wedding

Shannon and Chris shared a beautiful autumn wedding together at Monadnock Berries in Troy, NH. The day was magnificent, warm and sunny with clear, crisp skies. It was a wedding filled with joy, laughter and gifts. Shannon and Chris had presents planned for each other, their bridal party and their family that were given throughout the day. You could sense the love between them all and it was a heart warming event to witness. 

Shannon started her day getting ready in the little yellow cabin on the property at the berry farm. She then rolled in style to the ceremony location in a stretch Rolls Royce! The couple planned a first look ceremony which took place in front of two giant maple trees. I love to watch that moment of grand anticipation between the couple. It’s always a fun moment to shoot. 

The ceremony took place in the evening and we got to the portrait portion of the night just as the sun was beginning to set with Mt. Monadnock in the background. I love the series of them walking together as the light changes from day to night. From there we moved under the tent where the wedding band (Groove Authority) rocked the guests late into the night. The wedding went off without a hitch and ended with a kiss under the starry NH sky. What more could you ask for?
