Rye, New Hampshire Elopement Photographer: Stacy + Dave

There is absolutely nothing more romantic to me than a couple who’ve decided to steal away for the day – just the two of them – to elope in New Hampshire under a canopy of trees with a view to the quiet retreating waves of an ocean at low tide. Odioirne Point State Park was the perfect outdoor location for their day with the shore along Seacoast Science Center and Rye to decorate their weddings backdrop.

They booked an oceanfront hotel to get ready side by side in, dressed to the nines, carried a bucket full of ice and champagne, and rented a limo to drive us around the quiet late October coast of New Hampshire.

She stunned me the second she stepped into the hotel lobby with her long wavy blonde in a gorgeous lace detailed dress that couldn’t have suited her better. She’s an animal lover like me so attached to their champagne bucket was a wooden ornament painted to look like her sweet kitty Max so he too could join his parents on their wedding day.

He couldn’t have been more gentle with her, always carefully holding her hand or the train of her dress as we climbed across the rocks, and walked in the wooded parts of the coast. He’d lean his forehead gently against hers looking deep into her eyes before squeezing her tight and pulling her close for a kiss.

The ceremony was something out of a dream with the sun starting to reach the edge of the horizon so it’s golden hue filtered through the late fall trees that surrounded them. Both of them softly cried while holding hands and making lifelong promises to one another.

They had me by their side for three hours and since it was an elopement we got this abundance of time to focus on just the two of them so we traveled in their limo to one beautiful spot to another. They walked in the bog the low tide revealed and climbed on the rocks; and they were down for anything which made my heart soar.

I love elopements, I love their heart, and I love the emotion and depth I get to witness when two people decide to marry with just their favorite person in the world.

Congratulations Stacy and Dave, I couldn’t have been happier to photograph your most beautiful wedding day and I wish you the very best!
