Ryan and Theresa were married on August 23rd at Redhook Brewery in Portsmouth, NH on a perfect summer afternoon filled with beer, cheese, and merriment. It’s no wonder that Redhook is a hot wedding reception venue, complete with a beautiful ceremony space under a huge tree, an enormous tented patio for dancing and dining, and of course the amazing food and BEER from the Redhook pub.
The Day Began at the Wentworth by the Sea Marina Suites
Theresa was so elegant and statuesque, being 5’11” and completely stunning. Her strapless sheath dress was lightweight and breezy with a delicate train. The bridal party and their families got ready at the Wentworth by the Sea Marina Suites, so we had an incredibly scenic location for the preparation photos as well as their first look and bridal party group photos.
I was completely mesmerized by the yellow and green bouquets by Lyndsey Loring Designs. Those orchids! It was fresh, summery, and bold. Their yellow and green theme continued through their invitations and save the date cards.

Beer & Cheese
The beer and cheese theme was strong at the reception, and Ryan and T took the opportunity to brew a custom beer just for the occasion, playfully named “Will He Bail? Ale” The beer flowed all night, served in their fun personalized pub glasses as wedding favors.
One thing that I found completely amazing was their wedding “cake” which was made entirely out of cheese wheels, draped with fresh fruit and edible flowers. Such an amazing interpretation of a wedding cake!

A few days before Michelle and Adam’s wedding last weekend, I was approached by a reporter at the Washington Post letting me know that Adam and Michelle were slated to have their wedding featured the following Sunday in their On Love column. I was happy to send over a few photos that same week, and was excited to see their story online. It’s also in the printed paper, but I haven’t seen a copy of that. I loved reading more about this adventurous and dynamic couple… growing up, I always wanted to be an archaeologist so reading how they met was very awesome.
Stay tuned for a preview post of some of their highlighted images!
