You know what is my favorite? When a couple has a rich, strong history. A Cory + Topanga kind of love. These two met as kids at summer camp, and when it came time for their (fabulous) wedding, they returned to the town in New Hampshire where it all began. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love that. One peek at Joyelle West Photography’s images of the day, though, and you’ll get it. But just warning you, the gallery is packed with so much pretty, you may want to clear your calendar before hopping in there.
From the Bride… When Josh proposed to me last December and whisked me away to celebrate our engagement in the town where we met as kids (at sleep away summer camp) we knew that it was the only place in the world where we wanted to get married. We fell in love with the mix of the rustic atmosphere and elegant elements of Church Landing in Meredith, New Hampshire and the rest fell into place. Inspired by a neutral color palette the wedding was full of soft lace, blush, greys, whites, and mercury glass paired with birch and pinecone accents. Our goal was to create a wedding that celebrated Meredith, and helped our guests fall in love with a place that meant so much to us. Our florist Nicole D’Agata of The Painted Tulip helped create the perfect blend of rustic elegance and outdid herself when it came to making our wishes of a candlelit ceremony and reception come true.
The little details of the day were some of our favorite elements of the entire wedding and each detail was chosen with care. From the signature cocktail, The Meredith Cider, that my husband created just for the wedding to the card box made from birch bark each detail was just perfect. We incorporated family heirlooms into each piece of the wedding that made those details even more special. Sitting at our sweetheart table surrounded by those we love most in the world was a moment that words couldn’t possibly do justice. We worked with an amazing group of vendors who allowed our wedding to be everything that we dreamed it would be: a rocking dance party full of great food, wonderful family, and fantastic friends!
