Associate photographer Elena and I headed up to Gunstock in Gilford, NH Sept. 18 for Ben and Amy’s wedding. Elena met the women at Misty Harbor Resort Hotel for some portraits on the beach at Lake Winnipesaukee while I photographed the groomsmen. Then we photographed the ceremony together along with the reception. There was an emotional moment during the ceremony as they held a remembrance for Ben’s father who passed a couple years ago. The mother of Ben’s best man Andrew (Holly Noble) officiated. In keeping with having close personal connections also serving as service providers, friends of theirs from the J Biddy Band performed so they had a great party band that connected with guests.
Last but certainly not least, best man Andrew stunned the crowd at the end of his speech with a surprise proposal to his girlfriend who was in attendance. This was my first time witnessing a wedding proposal right as it happened and it was a great moment. Andrew had checked with Ben for permission so as not to steal the show. He did for a little while though. Sort of hard not too with something like that! I was right on it and captured all the action as it unfolded! See it below.
