Classic Early Fall Wedding at Governor’s Island Club on Governors Island, Gilford, New Hampshire
Melissa & Tommy tied the knot on the first day of October – it was one of those perfect early fall days where the sky is bright blue and leaves haven’t fully turned yet and you’re in the magical in-between of seasons. I’d already known from their engagement session a few months previous that they were going to be the life of the party, but when I walked into her parent’s house while all the ladies were getting ready, I realized that I may have underestimated how much energy their wedding party and families would bring!! Everyone was SO pumped about the day and brought the absolute best energy.
Their first look next to where their ceremony would take place was so sweet and we had the best time getting their portraits! Seeing both of Melissa’s parents walk her down the aisle with her sibling’s reactions was something I’ll always remember – and the best part about their ceremony was that her younger brother married them. I absolutely LOVE it when the officiant is someone related to the couple! Not only did Melissa & Tommy absolutely crush all of their portraits (the sky was MAGIC for their sunset shots!!), but once the dance floor opened, it was clear that they came to party. It was the craziest reception that I’ve ever seen, culminating in Melissa crowd surfing. Guys, I am so so so excited for you to start your new married lives together and I can’t thank you enough for inviting us into your lives to capture such a special day for you!! xoxoxo
