Shayla & Kyle were married October 3 with a ceremony and reception at the Atkinson Resort and Country Club in Atkinson, NH.
Shayla's smile was contagious. She was so incredibly happy all day, it was hard not to look at her beaming and start smiling yourself. Shayla and Kyle decided to do a first look before the ceremony. This allowed them to get their portraits done before the day really began so they could head straight into cocktail hour when the ceremony was over. I love the picture of them from this part of the day, because even though they are not looking at the camera directly, it shows how genuinely in love they are and that smile of Shayla's I was talking about! Also, the fall colors provided the perfect backdrop for portraits.
Before the ceremony started, I stumbled upon Shayla’s sister “privately" rehearsing her speech. The support and caring that every person present had for Shayla and Kyle was apparent all day. And their love for each other! My favorite moment from the ceremony was capturing Kyle's happiness and excitement as Shayla walks down the aisle with her father. I also loved how their friends and family were asked to stand to show their support during the ceremony. It made a special moment even more special.
The reception was so much fun! Julie Ahern with the Club handled all the planning and organizing and made everything go smoothly, and DJ Rick Bettencourt kept everyone dancing all night long.
This venue is such a gorgeous spot to get married! Thanks to the club for helping make Shayla and Kyle's wedding so amazing. And thanks to Shayla and Kyle for asking me to capture such a special and beautiful day in their lives.
Congratulations - I wish you many, many years full of laughter and smiles together!
