It was our pleasure to photograph the first wedding to be held at the new Next Level Church location in Somersworth, NH. Sarah and Mike had a beautiful day for their wedding. We started the day with their "First Look" session at 7 Continental in Rochester, NH. The bridesmaids had strict orders for Sarah before she saw her groom for the first time. She was NOT allowed to kiss him! That proved to be a difficult task for this cute couple as they enjoyed their first moments seeing each other before the ceremony. Sarah obeyed her bridesmaids...at least for the "First Look" session. We then went on to use other parts of the 7 Continental property for the formal pictures of the wedding party and both families. A special "Thank You" goes out to Dave, the owner of 7 Continental, for allowing us to use the grounds for pictures!
Pastor Josh Gagnon performed a wonderful ceremony in front of an estimated 120 guests. The best man and maid of honor gave some very emotional toasts and a friend of the bride and groom kicked off the music for the dance floor. The guests had a great time celebrating with the happy couple! The bride's sister caught the bouquet and the bride's sister's boyfriend caught the garter. Hmmm, was the bouquet and garter toss fixed??? The night ended with Sarah and Mike making a grand exit while their guests lined the way to their car by the light of sparklers.
Sarah and Mike,
We thank you so much for allowing us to be such a big part of your special day! We pray that God will bless your marriage Forever and Always!!!
He sure was anxious to see his bride!!!
Oh, so close to kissing! They almost forgot the bridesmaid rule!
Yes, sometimes THIS happens during the formal photo portion of the day!
The flower girl found her "man"!
Sarah enjoyed a special time of prayer with the bridesmaids before the ceremony began.
The "B" is the initial of their last name. The green rope represents Mike. The pink rope represents Sarah. The white rope represents God. The white rope is also in the center to represent God being the center of their lives and their marriage. Sarah and Mike tied one knot during the ceremony and will continue tying a new knot on each of their future anniversaries!
Sarah found her Prince Charming!!!
