Shawna & Bob – Abenaqui Country Club in Rye, NH Wedding
Like many couples in 2020, Shawna and Bob had planned on a big wedding and celebration but were forced to scale back and just celebrate with immediate family and a few friends. Their original venue was Blue Ocean Event Center (which we absolutely love photographing weddings at), but they had to change it to Abenaqui Country Club in Rye NH at the last minute (like, literally a couple of months before their wedding.. kudos to these two for all the last minute changes and still pulling off an absolutely perfect event). I was bummed when I heard the venue was being changed because I knew how much Shawna and Bob really wanted their photos to include the ocean (and Blue Ocean Event Center is RIGHT on the water). So, with their vision in mind and a free afternoon, I drove the coast of NH a couple of weeks before their wedding and found a perfect spot for portraits after their church ceremony. That way on the day it was completely stress free for them and we all had a game-plan. And you know what? It might have just been better than their original plan; it all came together so perfectly and was a beautiful and intimate event.
Back at the Abenaqui Country Club we did family photos during cocktail hour and then let the party start! And of course we snuck them outside once the dance floor opened to get some cool night photos!
