Hanover, New Hampshire Connecticut River Soiree Wedding

Susannah and Jim go way back to their college days where they dated for a while. Then they broke up and went their separate ways, but Susannah never forgot him, although she fell out of touch with him for six years and in fact did not even know where he was, or how to find him. Through a strange series of coincidences, including a random dream she had about Jim, and then an odd comment that a friend made, she was compelled to try to email him using a very old college email address, the only one she knew of. Miraculously, he responded. And they’ve been together ever since.

Fast forward a few years….in Hanover, New Hampshire, just next to Dartmouth College, there is this little nondescript motel on the side of the road called the Chieftain Inn Motor Lodge. You would never know that just behind this little roadside motor lodge, down a treacherously steep one-lane dirt path, there is the most amazing event space situated right on the bank of the Connecticut River, complete with reception tents, docks, sunsets, and everything you could want in an outdoor summertime soiree.
