Colorful, Whimsical Henniker Backyard Wedding

Samantha & Myles

Their gorgeous wedding was hosted at her family’s home in Henniker, NH. Such a beautiful property was elevated to new heights with a large sailcloth tent, and a stunning ceremony site in a field overlooking the hills.  Sam was in good spirits when I arrived, even though I know emotions and nerves were running high. She remained poised and graceful as the photography started, and she transformed into one of the most beautiful brides I have ever had the pleasure of working with.  It was pretty much a perfect day. The photo ops were endless, the day ran smoothly thanks to the impeccable coordination by Inked Events, the team of vendors was loaded with talent, and at the end of the day, we all watched two amazing people get married who complete each other. And-oh yeah- there were not one but two food trucks!

Flower girl Violet was so precious.  She was in complete awe and admiration of Sam, and she felt so pretty in her own white dress.

food truck wedding

Sam and Myles had not one, but two food trucks cater their wedding dinner! It was amazing. Pennypackers served gourmet sandwiches such as: Porchetta with Summer Fruit Mostarda, Grilled Peach with Mozzarella, balsamic, and arugula, and Grilled Chicken and Goat Cheese with Tomato.  The Cod Squad food truck served made-to-order fried scallops, haddock, lobster rolls and kebabs. I heard nothing but rave reviews from the guests.

a night of merriment

The night started with the first dance, then speeches & toasts, and then the dance floor opened and it didn’t stop! There was a fantastic dance party that went strong all night long. A sparkler send-off closed out the night and most of the partiers collapsed happily on the shuttles back to the hotels. An unforgettable night!
