Sarah & Dave || Inn at Pleasant Lake Wedding
"I will circle around you until the stars die and the world has forgotten what makes us different. And I will shatter any future that dares to divide us." -X-Men Legacy #12
It took me awhile to find a comic book love quote, but thanks, reddit, I found one! So, Sarah and Dave are big comic book/superhero fans (who isn't really? I need to catch up), so I thought it would be appropriate. There are some touches to comic books in their details (comic book covers as table names, love). And so many personal details throughout. That is one of the most fun things for me on a wedding day, seeing the way each couple makes it special and their personalities shine through.
I had such a fabulous time at this wedding, and although I love a great band or DJ, you definitely don't need one to rock out all night long (just look at the end photos to prove it ;)). And of course, one of my favorite wedding venues in New Hampshire - the Inn at Pleasant Lake! I think this was my first fall wedding there (early fall), and it was just as beautiful as ever.
Ceremony & Reception: The Inn at Pleasant Lake, New London, NH
From Sarah: We wanted a memorable, beautiful, fun ceremony and reception with our family and closest friends - a true celebration, with special details, and lots of joy.
What is one suggestion you have for other couples who are planning their weddings? Remember that the day is to celebrate your marriage, make sure that the decisions you make are rooted in that priority.
Sarah's dad is a pastor, so he also officiated their wedding! That brought a lot of personal touches and anecdotes that was so sweet.
One of favorite shots from the day, and from almost every wedding - the recessional - so happy!
How gorgeous are these ladies? This dark green is not a color I usually see for bridesmaids' dresses, but it just works so well, on every one of them. And of course amazing flowers from Allioops.
Thanks for being brave and walking out on to that little dock! I just love the way these turned out with the water, mountains, sunset... Sigh.
The photos are gorgeous and I'm so happy that you caught so many special moments. Six months later and I look through all the pictures regularly - the joy, intimacy, humor and love of the wedding day were truly captured!
Love these parent dances!
