Lakeside New Hampshire Wedding

A bride who isn’t afraid to throw on a sequined shrug to beat the chilly weather? Color me thrilled! Newlyweds Jessie and Jessica traveled to New England for a lakeside ceremony and a reception full of rustic appeal, bits of glitter, and bridesmaids wearing their finest sequin and lace duds! Thanks to Dreamlove Photography for sharing this wedding with us.

From the bride, Jessica: Jesse and I are both from Ohio but I spent most of my summers in New Hampshire and knew that fall in New England would be a perfect setting for our wedding. The Bluewater Lodge was the perfect mix of rustic, nature, and simplistic beauty. Designing the wedding was definitely one of the most fun things I had ever done… thank goodness for Pinterest to keep all of my thoughts organized and inspiration flowing! I knew I wanted the colors to be natural but with lots of textures and sparkle!

One reason our wedding day felt so much like a fairy-tale like was that Jesse and I had not seen each other for eight weeks (I was in NH completing a clinical for school) so one of the best parts of that weekend was just being together again. Our written vows, our talented musicians, and the sun glistening over Mt. Kearsarge made the ceremony even more magical. Our reception was the best party we could have asked for. My 11-year-old brother stole the night with his gangnam style dance!

My advice for future DIY brides is to: Hire someone to execute your design and be prepared for the chaotic energy that takes place the day of (and know that it’s normal!). Our wedding weekend was nothing without all the love and support we had from all our friends and family. Everyone pitched in one way or another to make our day so special and for that, we are so grateful. It was truly the most beautiful and enchanting day we could have ever asked for.
