Cindy Regnier & Gino Milne

Cindy and Gino met first as co-workers, then became a couple over shared glasses of wine. After becoming engaged, on Cindy’s birthday, they decided to have their ceremony at their home in Seacoast New Hampshire. Their property, originally part of a dairy farm, includes a beautiful stone barn. “Melanie, our wedding planner and officiant, suggested we should be outside and use our barn, which really put me at ease about doing it at our house,” says Cindy.

Initially, upgrading a building used to store machinery and garden equipment, not to mention cleaning up landscaping, seemed daunting. Fortunately, Cindy, a lighting designer by trade, knows how to stage a room. The barn was transformed with chandeliers, mirrors, creative lighting and furniture into a bar and a seating area with comfortable chairs (“It looked amazing,” Cindy says). The couple also planned their landscaping so that flowers and plantings would be green and in bloom in time for the ceremony, despite the persistent efforts of groundhogs. It was a hit with family and friends, as was the entire day. “Everything was perfect,” says Cindy. “My favorite people were there and it was lovely.”
