Tricia and Geoffrey were married on September 13th, with a ceremony and reception at Searles Castle in Windham, NH.
I met up with Tricia at the Castle to photograph her getting ready for the day. She and Geoffrey wanted to do a first look so that they could get their portraits and family pictures done before the ceremony. Although the rain kept us inside, the castle was full of amazing light and detail, which made for some really fun shots! (Later, when the rain let up, we snuck outside for a few shots in front of the iconic castle itself.)
I think my favorite part of the whole day was Tricia’s smile. She and Geoffrey were laughing and smiling together all day, and it was infectious! There are so many images of the two of them laughing or having a good time together that it was hard to narrow down my favorites for this post. I loved that they burst out in laughter during the ceremony and the sincerity of Geoffrey’s smile at that moment. Tricia's reaction when Geoffrey got a little naughty and wiped cake icing on her face after the cake cutting was priceless.
There was also a beautifully touching moment when Tricia hugged her sister after the maid of honor speech. You can just feel the warmth and love between them in this image!
Finally, I just want to give a shoutout to the band: The Ward Eights. They are hands down the best wedding band of all time! You can see that the dance floor at their weddings are never empty. They sound amazing whether they are playing old school Motown classics or a medley of ska music. (Check back on my blog next week for a closer look at the band and what to look for when hiring a band for your wedding day.)
Thank you, Tricia & Geoffrey, for allowing me to be part of this amazing day. You two were just so much fun, and I wish you nothing but more happiness and joy and laughter!
