Taylor & Craig

A Chilly Fall Wedding at Dell-Lea in Chichester, New Hampshire

Taylor and Craig’s wedding was a cold one, but literally one of the funnest events of the year!! It feels like this day took forever to come after we did their engagement session in the blistering heat last summer (polar opposite of the weather on their wedding day ironically!) but I sure am glad it’s finally on the blog!!

One of the best things I’ve witnessed this year is a few of my couples being able to celebrate their marriage while having their sweet baby by their side as they do it. There’s something just extra special about it, and seeing Craig and Taylor’s son, Ryler, be loved on by everyone throughout the day was an extra sweet touch to their event.

The day went by in a blur, but it was perfect!! They hosted their event at one of my favorite venues, Dell-Lea, and everything was simply perfect, even if the weather was slightly, okay super duper, chilly. Though there was a bite in the air, everyone literally was amazing and to me, looking back on this day you couldn’t tell we were moving at lightning speed to get everyone back in the warmth!!

The sun set during their ceremony and their vows were super sweet to hear. We took all of Taylor and Craigs couple’s portraits after the sun went down, all within 5-7 minutes, and I am simply OBSESSED with how pretty they turned out!! It’s hard when we are at the mercy of light for parts of the day, but the entire wedding party CRUSHED it!!!

The best man gave one of the best speeches ever, and the reception went by all too fast. Before anyone knew it, Ryler was being hoisted in the hair to his departing tune and everyone gathered round as his little face took it all in. Craig and Taylor’s celebration was a great second to last celebration for my year, and I wholeheartedly so sad it’s already over!!!

Taylor & Craig — thank you both for having me on this wild ride with you!! I feel so thankful to have been there for you, and I hope you enjoy some of my very favorites from your day!! Full gallery coming soon ❤️
