Abenaqui Country Club Wedding Photographer | Rye Beach, NH | Kate and Ray

Kate and Ray were married at St. Theresa's Church, with their reception following at the Abenaqui Country Club. From the moment I met Kate and Ray, at their engagement shoot, I knew their wedding was going to be awesome! Sure they had a beautiful day, gorgeous details, a beautiful dress, but the laughter they share together is better than everything else put together. Their love for each other is so obvious, and Kate's smile and laugh is infectious.

Joanne of Joya Beauty carries around this cute mirror for all her brides to use -- That day, Kate fell in love all over again with that mirror!

The bride's sister (on the top right) was in tears watching Kate and Ray during their first dance and needed some consoling.

During their bride and groom speech, Ray did something we all fear. He replaced the word "best" with "breast", and you're thinking, well that's not so bad... but he was talking to the nuns during the flub. The crowed errupted in laughter, and thankfully the nuns saw the humor in it too!

Kate and Ray decided to replace the traditional wedding cake with cannoli's. How sweet!

Congratulations Kate and Ray! I wish you many years of happiness and laughter!

Many, many thanks to my super talented second photographer - Tara Hamer of Tara Photography.
