This was our first wedding at The Common Man Inn in Plymouth, NH. It is such a unique inn and a wonderful location for a wedding. We had some crazy weather on Alyse and Dennis' wedding day, so thankfully the inside of the inn offered some great backdrops for indoor photos. We started the day photographing Alyse and her bridesmaids as they were finishing getting ready for the special occasion. Alyse surprised Sarah and I by giving us a special gift once we arrived. I got right into shooting mode and forgot to open the gift until Sarah reminded me that we had not opened the gift yet. We were so touched by the thoughtfulness of the gift that Alyse and Dennis purchased for us. You'll have to look in the photos below to see what they gave us.
We were able to take some of the formal pictures of the wedding party outside before the ceremony. The weather for the big day started out really nice. We got just over half way through the ceremony when high winds just came out of nowhere! We stayed outside and pushed through the windy ceremony for as long as we could. Once the rain joined the wind, everyone ran for cover under the inn's front porch. Thankfully we were able to finish the ceremony under the porch and then proceed inside for the cocktail hour and formal pictures. The rain and wind left almost as fast as they came. Once the crazy weather subsided, we took Alyse and Dennis back outside and captured a few more fun and formal images.
Alyse and Dennis took part in their first dance after the parents and wedding party were introduced to the reception crowd. Once dinner was finished, Alyse and Dennis got the party started on the dance floor. We had SO MUCH FUN photographing the dancing at this reception. There were some wonderful dancers, goofy dancers, and...well, some that we'll just leave in an un-named category. Please check out the images below for more of Alyse and Dennis' MYP Wedding Story! Don't forget to leave a comment at the end!
Thank you to all of the other wedding vendors who made Alyse and Dennis' day one that they will never forget!

For those of you who have been to our home office, you know that I have a collection of old cameras in an antique china cabinet. The camera in the image below was the special wedding day gift that Alyse and Dennis bought for us to add to our collection. Thank you again Alyse and Dennis!!!
This was such a cool location to take pictures of the bridal party. This is actually on top of a roof!
So many cupcake flavors!!! How do you chose just one...or did you??? :-)
Dennis, here comes your bride!!!
Here comes the wind!!!
I really thought Alyse's veil was going to blow right off her head! The wind was insane!
Then the rains came and forced us to take cover under this porch.
Oh brother...they're doing it again!!! Get a room already!!!
We were blessed with this beautiful weather after the winds and rain passed through the area.
Captured by the flower girl!!!
I just love the expression on Dennis' face! LOL
Special note: Make sure that you take your phone out of your pocket before doing the worm on the dance floor. I think the phone (just above his hip) survived the fall!
Awww, so sweet....until....
...Alyse comes around with a nice right, cupcake hook to the side of Dennis' face!!!! Way to go Alyse!!!
Alyse & Dennis,
We can't thank you enough for hiring us to capture your special wedding day memories! We had so much fun with the two of you and your family and friends! May God bless your marriage Forever & Always!
Matt & Sarah
