Emma and Tate’s Hanover Inn, Dartmouth NH Wedding

Emma and Tate’s wedding took place at their beloved Dartmouth College, complete with classrooms and historic buildings and even a professor… her dad. Everyone got ready at the Hanover Inn and then Emma and Tate walked over to the Hood Museum of Art for their first look. It was so romantic watching them get lost in the moment and just hold one another and take the whole thing in. Tears were flowing. The ceremony was flawless and then we all headed over to the cocktail hour and reception. The first dance song choices were more than perfect, (“Into the Mystic” by Van Morrison: Couples first Dance, “Harvest Moon” by Neil Young: Father Daughter, “I Will” by the Beatles: Mother Son). The mother-son dance had me crying. You should have seen her singing the song to Tate! The dancing began and it was a night full of love for everyone there.

    Fantastic photography! I especially love the b/w photo of the newlyweds where Tate looks as though he is reflecting on the day and anticipating their wonderful future and Emma is calmly blissful and so content in his arms.
