Like all couples do, Ali and Declan began planning their wedding day after getting engaged, by the way their engagement session on a horse farm was amazing! They spent many mornings watching the sunrise over the ocean in Hampton, New Hampshire and fell in love there on the beach, and decided a ceremony in one of their favorite spots was a no-brainer. Declan is a marine, and he invited many of his marine buddies to the wedding. They even did a Marine Corps sword salute as the newlyweds walked back up the aisle after their ceremony. After attending Declan’s annual family pig roast, they made the decision for a do-it-yourself backyard wedding reception. The tent was all set up, the pig was roasting, sweet personal details were scattered around the back yard, and they danced the night away. There may have even been some dogs on the dance floor! It was such a unique and fun wedding, and I loved every minute of it, even waking up before sunrise to see the girls getting ready. When Ali was dressed we walked across the street to the beach where her groom was waiting for her and we captured some amazing sunrise photos after their first look.
