Semple Wedding April 18, 2008

I had the pleasure of photographing Mathew and Melissa’s wedding Saturday April 18. These two were really fun to photograph and had a great sense of humor. Matthew is in the Navy and will be deploying soon. His groomsmen made quite a picture as they were all in their dress blues. Wedding days are always highly emotional, but this day was punctuated by the fact it was the first time Mr. and Mrs. Semple had seen their three sons, all military men, together in 5 years.
Melissa and Matthew chose the romantic Monponsett Inn in Halifax, MA because of its convenient location, service, and great view. The Inn is situated on a picturesque lake and has a Gazeebo and beautifully manicured grounds for formal wedding photography. Below are a few of the images I made from the day, beginning with the preparations of hair and make-up to the last dance.

Spring Bridal Show at the Granite Rose

This past weekend was the spring bridal show at the Granite Rose (http://www.graniterose.com/) in Hampstead NH. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Hampstead, it is right off of rte 111 – just a quick drive from either Nashua or Salem.

Even though it is not far off the beaten path, the Granite Rose is in a quiet secluded area. A beautiful event center that is both elegant and rustic with lots of windows to enjoy the view. It also has a wrap-around deck and a gazebo for formal photos. The landscaping was beautiful and will make a great backdrop for outdoor photos. The photo below is from their website:

The inside is beautiful too, they keep it up very nicely and it has a large main room (The Embassy Room) with two built-in bars and plenty of room to accommodate different seating arrangements. The color scheme was pink and light green, which is the wedding colors of many of my spring brides. There is a smaller room downstairs which I didn’t have a chance to see. One thing that stood out to me were the chairs; they were noticeably nicer than most function facilities and very comfortable – you wouldn’t need chair covers for these. Also, the staff members I had a chance to talk to were very friendly, helpful and professional.

It was great to meet all the brides-to-be and to check out the other vendors. A vendor I hadn’t seen before was a dance studio that teaches pole dancing – and they had a live demonstration set up right in front of my booth! The more daring brides can check them out at http://www.polebliss.com/.

Going to the shows just reminds me of what a great way it is for brides to check out so many different vendors all in one place. They can hear the DJs, see real flower arrangements, taste the wedding cakes, and even catch a bridal fashion show, all in a couple of hours. It is a great time-saver and a fun way to spend an evening or an afternoon. They also get a chance to meet the vendors in person, which is such an important aspect of choosing the professionals you are trusting to make your day perfect. So get out and go to some!

Last night I participated at the “New England Bride” bridal show at the Radisson Hotel in Nashua.
