With a season of uncertainty and months of changes from the time Lindsay and Frankie booked me for their intimate celebration up in the White Mountains, there were understandably many things that changed once their wedding date rolled around.
They had a change in venue, changes in spots for photos, and constantly changing weather that went from sunny to storms back to overcast that we worked around – but after all of the speed bumps what was most important was that they made sure they were married in front of their two small girls – and that they got to do a little exploring for their photos which was a big priority for Lindsay!
They love the outdoors and trek around even with their little ones so it was important to have their wedding day be somewhere a little on the wild side. They’d scoped out places to venture to, walked along wooded pathways, and nailed down the Glen Ellis Falls up in Gorham, NH as one of the must visit spots on the day of.
As mentioned before, the weather was tricky on the mid-November date and while snow wasn’t settled on the ground, the rocks reaching out over the water that led to the waterfalls were sadly covered with a slick film of ice. Lindsay took a couple of gentle steps out on them in hopes that it wouldn’t be so bad and they’d be able to stand next to the spray of the water behind them, but it just wasn’t in the cards when her boots had trouble finding stability on even the first couple of steps out.
Not wanting to wind up soaked or worse, we kept it safe and they stood out on the dry rocks overlooking the rushing water and the dark green evergreen trees that lined the sky.
Moments together in one another’s arms away from all of the last-minute planning and the rushing to make sure everything was done in time was something I hope the couple found some happiness in! It was definitely cold, especially when we left the protection of the rocks and the wind blew her veil all over the place while the cold made their eyes tear up, but they got those quiet moments together before making it official in front of close family and their little girls.
Lindsay + Frankie, thank you for inviting me on your White Mountain intimate wedding, I wish you two all the best!
