A Fall Castle Wedding | Searles Castle in Windham, NH | Thyra and Nolen's Fun filled family bash!
A Searles Castle Wedding - Ending the 2015 Wedding Season with a Bang!
There's so many amazing things about this Searles Castle wedding I don't even know where to start! Thyra and Nolen are an amazingly sweet couple who really wanted their day to focus on their family. Both have experienced the loss of a parent which is always bitter sweet at weddings because you can see how much they value and treasure the family they have present.
Thyra and Nolen certainly made this a day to remember!
The day started out with Thyra getting ready in their multi-room bridal suite with an amazing patio, powder room, and large sitting area. Down the hall, past the creepy doll room, the guys were getting ready and having a great time. Thyra took the time to write a lovely letter to Nolen for him to open and one for him to put into their time capsule. Nolen created a fun time capsule for them to bury in their yard and open at a later time. It included notes to each other they wrote that day and a few other fun items!
Nolen also wrote a touching note for Thyra to open the morning of the wedding which I always think is adorable! You can tell Thyra really appreciated it.
Once everyone was ready to go to the ceremony we ushered everyone out of the castle and staged a "first look" for Thyra and Nolen - while they chose to not see each other before the ceremony, we were able to still get a really fun image of them in the same frame, but without seeing each other.
While the girls were prepping to go outside, Nolen was having a very touching moment with his mom pre-ceremony and then it was off to the alter!
After the ceremony we staged family formals and wedding party formals right on the lawn where family and friends could duck inside the tent for warmth between shots.
After an amazing dinner! It was time for dancing and partying. With the DJ spinning fun dance songs all night, Thyra and Nolen never came off the dance floor the entire night!
Thyra and Nolen's wedding was our first time photographing a Castle Wedding in Searles Castle and it definitely won't be our last there!
