Brookstone Park Event Center Wedding | Derry, NH Wedding Photographer | Angela and Josh
Angela and Josh's Fun Filled Brookstone Park Event Center Wedding in Derry New Hampshire
These two are so friggin' adorable I can't even contain myself. I met up with them in the fall of 2014 for their engagement session at Deering Oaks Park in Portland Maine. I love couples who are completely into each other and have a great sense of humor. Angela and Josh had both!
Angela and Josh decided to marry at St. Patrick's Church in Nashua, New Hampshire because for generations, Angela's family members have been married there. I can certainly see why! It was an absolutely gorgeous church and the priest and church staff were so accommodating and friendly!
The wedding day started with Angela and her girls getting ready in her hotel room and from the moment I entered the room you could feel the excitement! The girls were buzzing around doing their make up and helping Angela get into her dress. It was all over when Angela's parents came in to see her in her dress for the first time. I love those emotional moments between daughter and her father before the ceremony. While I was with the girls, Dean was with the guys at the church for portraits with his guys and parents.
The ceremony was touching with readings by a family member and the bride's father along with a special cross blessing ceremony.
Following the ceremony the bride and groom were greeted with a vintage Bentley and a champagne toast outside the church and driven to Brookstone Event Center in Derry for their reception with family and friends.
There were so many special moments during the reception it's hard to pick just a few - the brides grandfather said the dinner blessing, Angela's father made a touching speech and then, for hilarious post dinner entertainment, the DJ had the entire wedding party come out to the dance floor. Angela and Josh were headed the next day for Hawaii so the DJ had everyone out on the dance floor for a blindfolded luau. During the luau the bride and groom had all the wedding party members clear the floor except one, and since he was blindfolded, had absolutely no idea until the song had ended and he removed the blind fold. It was one of the funniest things we've seen and all of their reactions were priceless!
