Mt Monadnock Camp Wa Klo Wedding for Elice + Matt

I AM … a Mt Monadnock wedding photographer and I photographed Elice + Matt’s waterfront camp wedding up in Dublin, NH!

Summer! Camp! Water! Woods! FUN!! That’s how I sum up their day – and if I’d ever been to summer camp as a kid (I was pretty shy when I was little and I would’ve been very traumatized at the thought of sleepaway camp – thank you Mom and Dad for not sending me even though I bet it was a grand time for many) this wedding day would have brought me right back to those good ole days.

With the last road leading to the camp being made of gravel, cabins tucked away in the woods, docks jutting out into the water with canoes and kayaks waiting to cut through the warm mountain water, and giant fire pits to make s’mores over – this is exactly the kind of place you imagine when thinking of those hot summer nights with a crowd of friends greeting you each morning at the mess hall.

They were wanting a day that wasn’t over the top, that represented their love of nature and their playful relationship and this was certainly a great spot to meet those needs. While the guys finished up tying ties in their cabin, the girls could be heard laughing across the way as they got into their dresses and did each other’s makeup. Guests who’d stayed the night before drank coffee on porches and took morning walks where they’d shout out to the bride and groom whenever they’d see them dashing across the property as they did last minute preparations – it felt like they’d made their own little world and it was packed with all the people who love them the most.

With weekend after weekend of rainy or overcast days, their wedding was met with bright skies and warm air and the views were spectacular every stop along the way! A lightly tearful first look along the path leading to a small waterfall, a ceremony among the tallest of trees with the lake just beyond the branches, and photos out on the docks with the great Mount Monadnock in the distance made for a picturesque celebration. What makes it even more special is that Matt has family ties to this camp so being the first ever to celebrate their marriage here brought another level of comfort to their day which was one of the goals when they first started looking at locations to make it official.

They looked lovingly into one another’s eyes during the ceremony, shed a few tears during the heartfelt toasts, and took every chance they could to wrap up in one another’s arms and squeeze each other tight. It was a beautiful and fun-filled day that suited these two well and I know there will be many happy late August summer nights when they adventure out into the wilderness with their pup and remember the amazing day they said I do.

Elice + Matt, I wish you all the best!!
