On 10/23/11 we had a small wedding in the White Mountains. It was a simple, stress-free, and perfect weekend. We mostly DIY'ed our entire wedding which was surprisingly easy and affordable.
Up until the day before the wedding, I didn't have a plan for my bouquet or flowers. I didn't want to put a lot of time or energy into stressing about flowers so on our way up to the White Mountains, we headed to our local Hannaford and Trader Joe's to pick up our flowers and just went with whatever looked best. I assembled my bouquet the day of the wedding with the help of my brother, who also served as our photographer. I wrapped the bouquet with some antique lace that I picked up at a boutique and secured it with pearl pins. For the table flowers, I simply placed each bouquet into mason jars tied with raffia.
I tackled the flowers, my hair and makeup (thanks to the talented ladies at Sephora who helped me pick the perfect wedding day makeup!), and the place settings which were munchkin pumpkins with name tags tied to the stem with jute twine.
We had our rehearsal dinner at White Mountain Cider Company, a rustic restaurant in the White Mountains.
One of our innkeepers served as justice of the peace and we had a beautiful outdoor wedding amongst the fall foliage. A few photos of the big day:
On our wedding night, we enjoyed a five course meal with our 11 guests at our inn.
It was an amazing weekend we'll never forget and hope to spend many anniversaries to come at the inn :)
