John + Nancy | Ragged Mountain Wedding Photography Preview

Wow, what a day. It was hot, no doubt about it. But that didn’t slow the festivities. John + Nancy’s day was FILLED with cool personal touches. The groomsmen each received their own caricature mug from John, and the ceremony tables were fixed with adorable quotes from Nancy’s students answering, “What is love?” (e.g., Love is when you hug someone and people kiss each other!).

At the last minute, the weather turned south (metaphorically) and the ceremony was moved indoors to the Ragged Mountain Ski Lodge. And it was the right call! Thunder rang deep and long just as the wedding party began their procession down the aisle. In fact, the thunder actually knocked two screens loose from a nearby window.

With Nancy’s mom & dad in each arm, she walked the long aisle to beautiful music played by local musicians David and Patrick. John met Nancy with tears in his eyes (there’s photographic evidence). They read their own vows, which true to John + Nancy’s nature, included a great sense of humor!

Despite the heat, the night continued with an intense showing on the dance floor!

And at the end of the night…. the skies opened to reveal one of the most epic sunsets I think I have ever experienced. Something about seeing reds + blues in the sky at the same time, wow. Love that the rain stopped and allowed us to get outside in peace to create epic pictures to finish off their day!
