Fall down here in Boston has been kind of, well, blah. The foliage has been so-so, the weather has been even worse (IT SNOWED LAST SUNDAY). It's sort of like Fall just skipped over us.
Last weekend, I figured out where Fall went; to New Hampshire!
The drive up north last weekend was nothing short of spectacular and to think that I was a weekend behind the peak of the foliage. Sweeping mountainsides still covered in vibrant shades of red, orange and yellow made for a very pleasant distraction from my three hour journey up north.
It also made a BEAUTIFUL back drop for the beautiful wedding of Volker and Carolyn. They were married at Whitney's Inn, which is this adorable inn near Jackson Falls. They had their reception in a barn which has been turned in to a restaurant/pub. Adorable details where everywhere, including the giant moose head hanging over the fireplace!
Volker and Carolyn are such an adorable couple! You could definitely see how much they loved one another. Carolyn had a smile on her face the ENTIRE day. One of the cutest brides, ever.
While Carolyn was getting ready at the salon, I noticed this beautiful ring on her right hand. It was her fiance's grandmother's ring and she was given it to wear for the day! I love it when brides can incorporate bits and pieces of their family into their day. It's so sweet and such a great memory!
The boys had their picture taken just outside the salon on the other side of the cover bridge. Talk about a tough job trying to keep the bride and groom from seeing each other! The boys clean up pretty well, huh? :)
Once Carolyn finished at the salon we headed over to the Inn where she and her girls got dressed and ready for photos. Carolyn's flowers were GORGEOUS and matched perfectly with her fall, October wedding!
Doesn't she make the most beautiful bride?!
Her dress was draped in this lovely, delicate lace that I just loved.
Just outside the Inn was this beautiful tree that still had most of its leaves on. We took advantage. A lot.
Isn't her joy just contagious?!
Happily walking with Dad down the aisle.
I'm telling ya folks, that smile stayed on ALL day.
Despite the frigid temperatures, Volker and Carolyn were real troopers and let Spring and I have some fun.
Carolyn wanted to check out the reception before everyone else came in for dinner. We had to capture them next to this beam that was decorated in lights.
I'll leave you with this image I took towards the end of the night. Volker and Carolyn steal a quick kiss in between dances!
Congratulations Volker and Carolyn! And thank you Spring for asking me to tag along, it was a blast!
