Moffatt-Ladd House and Garden wedding of Erica and Lucian in Portsmouth

by

Erica and Luc's wedding day was beautiful.  They married in the gorgeous Moffatt-Ladd House and Gardens in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with about 70 close friends and family in attendance (I was excited to see Audra and Matt as guests; I photographed their wedding with Emilie almost four years ago, and Audra is a wedding photographer herself).  Although the wedding had the casual Seacoast vibe, there was an international zest throughout the day.  Erica's family is Portuguese and Luc's family is Dutch -- for some, the wedding was their first or second visit to the U.S. from the Netherlands.  I'll admit, a couple times I wished I had Erica or Luc by my side as translators during my attempts to chat with extended family (comical on my part)!  Fortunately, everyone could speak the language of photography, and I was able to witness, friends, family, and Erica and Luc in sheer happiness all day. 

These two have a quiet, unspoken connection.  However, I wrongly assumed Luc of being reserved.  He had been calm and gentlemanly throughout the ceremony and portraits, but surprised me at the reception by riding through the venue on Erica's beloved bike, dressed in costume props from their photo booth that were reminiscent of George Clinton and his band Parliament.  What had I just witnessed?!  Apparently something funkadelic!

Thanks for having for me document your wedding day, Erica and Luc!  I have no doubt you enjoyed your honeymoon in Costa Rica!
