New Hampshire Lake Wedding: Marie and Mike

For years and years, Marie’s family vacationed to the beautiful Newfound Lake, in Hebron New Hampshire. It really was no question as to where she and her beau Mike would eventually get married. Overlooking her favorite place in the world, surrounded by family and friends, she and Mike said yes to forever. Dan and I found ourselves in one of the most welcoming, fun-loving, energetic group of guests we can remember. From walking into the Inn where the ladies were getting ready to set up in the dancing barn for the party to come, we were greeted with smiles and high energy. It was such a fun day to be a part of.

Some of my favorite memories and mishaps of the day, all gracefully handled:

Marie’s dress taking 45 minutes to get into due to a broken clasp! Marie was a champ and her ladies were rockstars, eventually sewing her into the dress. AND we were on time. Boom!

A delivery set-up car, having its battery die, while it was parked directly in the center of the ceremony area. It was fixed/towed/moved before any of us ladies could learn about it and the problem we solved! Boom times two!

A round of shots with the bridesmaids right before walking down the aisle.

The speeches were absolutely wonderful… a perfect mix of funny and tenderness. Well done everyone. Well done.

The dance party, complete with a flash mob dance by Marie’s family, a custom “shout” towel, made just so Marie could lie down on the floor and not get her dress dirty when we “get a little bit softer now,” and some really romantic husband and wife snuggling in the center of the dance floor.

All in all…. it was a joy.

Hey there!

This is a photo of me in a burger bar in Stockholm Sweden. I am about to drink the best beer I have ever had. It's a pretty important photo of me. I just remember feeling filled with joy and so so glad to be alive. That's a good place to start on getting to know me.


I like to travel.

I like beer.

I like the person who was across the table from me. Any guesses who?

where we hang
