We launched the 2018 wedding season in New Hampshire with a weekend-long celebration in honor of Amanda and Jason! The couple, now based in Chicago, met years ago through friends back when they lived in Boston. In planning their nuptials, they decided it was only appropriate to celebrate their marriage where they felt most at home – Jason grew up and went to college in New Hampshire and Amanda had always been drawn to the Seacoast’s charm.
The weekend kicked off on Friday afternoon with a heartfelt ceremony held on a property that belonged to Jason’s late grandfather, to whom Jason was extremely close. The occasion was kept intimate – just close family and a handful of friends joined the couple as they said their “I Dos”. After the ceremony, we made our way to the Wentworth by the Sea, where dances were held and everyone enjoyed a delicious and celebratory meal at SALT Kitchen & Bar.
Saturday was for kicking back and having a good time, as we took the festivities to a private residence in North Hampton, New Hampshire. It was important to Jason and Amanda that they had loads of time to spend celebrating with all of their loved ones. The open-air gathering was filled with affection and joyfulness, as everyone enjoyed a quintessential New England Lobster Bake, played lawn games and danced the night away to the tunes of dueling pianos.
What a perfectly classic seacoast celebration to start the season! Congrats you two!!
