When we first met Nate & Angela way back when, our meeting included Portsmouth NH, chili and the brewer’s sampler at the Portsmouth Brewery. Throw in easy conversation with a few laughs and we knew a great match was in the works! Nate is also an artist and a graphic designer, so with graphic design being Kerry’s background we were psyched to be chosen for their incredible wedding day at the stunning Toad Hill Farm in Franconia, New Hampshire, July 3rd, 2010. Toad Hill Farm is perfectly placed in the heart of the Presidential range in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, and local legend has it that poet Robert Frost enjoyed staying there and was inspired to pen A Road Less Traveled while visiting. We believe it and highly recommend its consideration for your wedding or family get-away…simply gorgeous!
The reception was held at Lovett’s Inn, also in Franconia. It’s so cool when you can just feel the joy & love bubbling over at the reception, and Nate & Ang and their friends and family had such fun that night…so did we! Here’s our view of the day…
One of the things we enjoyed so much about this wedding is that it completely fit Nate & Ang…they had the wedding they wanted and it showed! Nate’s creativity was woven throughout, including the rings that he designed! So beautiful!
Nate & Angela decided to have a “first look,” bucking tradition to see each other before the ceremony, which is just as special as during the ceremony, but gives us time to capture this beautiful moment, and Nate & Ang more time to party later! Here we have Nate anxiously awaiting his beautiful bride…
Wait for it……………. YES!
We were SO pleased that they planned plenty of time (a good hour+!) to take advantage of the breathtaking scenery at Toad Hill, we think it was well worth it…thanks guys!
So as we’ve mentioned, Nate is an artist and graphic designer and he showed some skills hand-painting the table cards, each with a different flower, to match each guest’s seating card. So cool! Nice work Nate :) The floral arrangements were so beautiful and fit perfectly with both Nate & Ang and the venues…great job by Emily Herzig Floral Studio!
A great time was had by all!
