We don’t have just one fabulous day to share with you but an entire wonderful wedding weekend full of some the most extraordinary details I’ve ever seen! Tucked away in a New Hampshire campground surrounded by fir trees and tranquil lake waters, this Aussie couple created a modern feast for the eyes (and tummies) starting with their New England lobster bake rehearsal dinner all the way through their gorgeous tented reception. Each celebration perfectly designed with paper goods and decor made by the bride! The details from this entire weekend were too much for just this one post so make sure you go to the full gallery to see it all!
From Grazier Photography… This traditional camp near Keene, New Hampshire provided a perfectly stunning backdrop for Nicole and Chris’s wedding festivities. The Adirondack lodge, designed by Augustus Shephard, was a magical stage for the three-day extravaganza. We were dazzled by the unique and nostalgic quality to the property – it is completely off the utility grid, and it is powered entirely by solar power and natural gas. The lodge even still has its original gaslights!
On the day before the wedding, Nicole and Chris hosted an Aussie style cricket match as well as other fun and games. They even arranged for an ice cream truck and marching band to visit! The rehearsal dinner was a traditional New England lobster bake served on the shores of the property’s lake.
Nicole is a graphic designer, and she created a plethora of amazing print materials for the wedding. Guest place cards were made using vintage postcards, and tables were named after the couple’s favorite cities. Nicole and Chris had the most awesomely amazing and wonderful wedding cake I have EVER seen, and that I ever expect to see. While the adults were in the main tent enjoying the salad course and toasts by the wedding party, little did they know the kids were undertaking a very important mission. The plain white tiered wedding cake needed some dressing up, and boy did these kids step up! The kids would have continued decorating all night, but when it was time to cut the cake the catering staff carried the cake into the party for all to admire. These kids were so proud of their work, it was just delightful to witness!
