I love today’s sweet lakeside wedding at the bride’s family summer home in New Hampshire captured by Bethany and Dan Photography. It is the perfect mix of rustic with classic elegance. All the birch wood details are my favorite!
We were married on September 12th in Hebron, New Hampshire on beautiful Newfound Lake. The ceremony location was at my family’s summer house where I grew up every summer. It is a very special place to me and my family and now my husband too. We wanted to share this beautiful place with all our family and friends. The reception was down the street at a bed and breakfast property. We had dinner under a beautiful tent and dancing in an old barn.
I wore my maternal grandmother’s ring throughout the day. I also had charms on my bouquet with pictures of loved family members who passed away. We had a display in the barn with family wedding pictures of our grandparents and parents. I used lace from my grandmother’s house to add a romantic touch to the table and pillows from her house to decorate a sitting area.
Our colors were cobalt blue, gray and blush. I really wanted the cobalt blue bridesmaid dresses to pop next to the lake and barn. The flowers were soft colors of blush, white and green. We also incorporated birch into our centerpieces and place card holders to bring in NH nature. The style we were going for was rustic, romantic and fun.
We wanted our wedding to be beautiful and fun for our guests. We wanted everyone to enjoy delicious food and have a great time dancing. We also wanted them to experience why we love New Hampshire so much by having it outdoors in the beautiful setting.
My in-laws are very crafty people so they made and painted our cornhole games. They also painted the mailbox we used as a card holder. One of my favorite details were our table numbers which were different years of our lives with pictures of us at that age.
The whole day was more perfect that we could have imagined. We had a very special and personal ceremony which was officiated by my father’s best friend, great food, hilarious speeches and danced all night! All the details came together so nicely and we had a beautiful day full of love and so much fun!
