Alaina and Tom…two very good friends of ours. What an honor it is to be chosen by friends to photograph their big day. I met Tom at a party through our friend Jason. We had a mutual love for craft beer and because he went to college in Colorado, we immediately bonded over our love for Dales Pale Ale. When Alaina came into his life, I knew he had met his match. They both love the outdoors, music, and travel adventures. Alaina & Tom moved to DC just before our wedding *sniff* but that’s ok, we’ll see them this winter when I fully expect them to take us on a DC beer tour.

Alaina and Tom’s wedding was held at Ragged Mountain, a ski lodge in New Hampshire. I do love ski lodge weddings (not just because our wedding was at a ski lodge!) with their gigantic mountain-facing windows and beautiful scenery. It was a perfect fall day, the foliage was at peak, the air was crisp, just a teeny bit of rain, and lots and lots of love. I love you guys.

And yes, I promised pretty much everyone at the wedding that I would make at least one animated gif of Alaina doing the shot-ski.
