The Three Chimneys Inn in Durham NH was the perfect setting for Danielle and James' wedding with its elegant rustic theme flowing throughout. As the girls relaxed at the Wingate Spa having their hair and makeup done, the guys enjoyed the rustic ambiance of the ffrost Sawyer Tavern with its wood beams and romantic lighting. Not without raising a glass to health and happiness! Danielle with her infectious smile and James, as the guys proclaimed him 'Groomzilla' with his amazing attention to detail, decided to do a 'first look' to ease the nerves and have that private last moment before saying "I do". They met on the bank of Oyster River Falls and shared the solitude in each others arms, before sharing the rest of their day.
Danielle wore an elegant Vera Wang dress and carried a bouquet of cream roses. Her bridesmaids wore knee-length vibrant summer sangria-colored dresses in an eclectic array of styles complemented by cream and sangria rose bouquets. The wedding party was also filled with nieces and nephews of the couple, walking down the aisle sending a message to James that his bride was on her way! The bride was escorted down the aisle by her father and step-father to meet her beau. After exchanging vows the couple, hand-in-hand were enveloped in sea of bubbles in celebration in the gardens at the manicured gardens of the inn.
Evening celebrations began with the couples first dance to "White Dress" by Nemes, as celebrations, cake cutting, toast, bouquet and garter tossing filled the night, the two newlyweds enjoyed every moment and headed off soon after for a week long honeymoon.
Congratulations to you both! A few of my favorite memories to share.
