A Nor'Easter Wedding | Fall 2018
“A portion [of the wedding] was outdoors in the middle of a Nor’easter, and [Nick] stuck it out, cameras and all - The videos told a story... they made us laugh, tear up, and smile - We shared the trailer with friends/family and direct quotes from them included it was the best wedding video they have ever seen, they cried all over again, and it was like a fairytale..." words from the bride and groom - Shailey & Graham
I have always wanted to film a winter wedding as the snow softly falls...Though not quite in winter, Shailey and Graham’s wedding granted me the opportunity to film my first wedding in the snow, but it was not just any snow storm, rather a Nor’Easter!
I drove up to the Omni Mount Washington Resort with ample time before I needed to be there because I knew of the impending storm. The snow began falling a little after 10 am with a light snow fall – the visuals of the mountains and the trees were spectacular, but because the storm moved in so quickly, the clouds obscured any Mount Washington views by the time I made it up to the resort.
In traditional Indian fashion Graham rode in on a horse with family and friends dancing alongside him as Shailey watched from afar. I, nervous about the heavy snow, wrapped the camera gear in ponchos, taped on with Gaffer’s tape, only to soon realize the Nor’Easter winds caught the ponchos like a sail, ready to topple the tripods. I fixed my mistake and captured the whole Baraat (the processional as the groom approaches), one hand on each camera.
The two exchanged their vows during a traditional Indian ceremony. After the ventured down to a tunnel in the basement, that led to a speakeasy like bar for photos and video! The two then changed into a tuxedo and a white dress for the reception entrance and they danced the night away!
