The Preserve at Chocorua Wedding : Domenique + Chris

I AM … a The Preserve at Chocorua wedding photographer and I photographed Domenique + Chris’ mid-summer wedding up in the White Mountains, NH!

I got to know these two last fall at their engagement session amongst the brightly colored leaves and water views and I quickly found that they’re perfect for each other with him always gently holding onto her and her always breaking into a bright smile whenever he’d lean in for a kiss or take his hand in hers – and their wedding day was a perfect mirror of that love.

Domenique + Chris enjoy spending time together so whether that means bonfires in the backyard or hikes up in the White Mountains what matters most is that they are in their happy place which is by the other’s side…and they definitely enjoy a healthy dose of spending quality time with their kitty too!

But alongside their love of being outdoors and spotting animals out in the wild, they also can’t get enough of their family and friends – and those people clearly can’t get enough of them either! So their choice of a wedding location that sits deep in New Hampshire surrounded by mountains and woods and also allows them to invite their loved ones to stay on the property with them to enjoy the wedding weekend all together was a great fit.

The day went wonderfully with a ceremony that started tears flowing from both sides of the wedding party as well as the couple themselves, and when it was time to steal the two of them away for photos the two of them lit up and fell right into their groove of being the perfectly fit puzzle pieces.

After an intimate first dance, toasts from their loved ones, and delicious food from Curt’s Caterers, Domenique did a quick change of dresses to one that allowed her to get rocking on the dance floor and party the rest of the evening away with her husband by her side.

It was a beautiful wedding day and I was so glad I got to be a part of it all. Domenique and Chris, I wish you all the best!!
