No detail went unnoticed in Jessica and Anthony’s wedding, even the date. Jessica, who admits “there wasn’t a detail I wasn’t involved in,” researched weather data and selected their wedding day based on the date which historically had the best weather on the New Hampshire Seacoast.

She chose well. The weather was beautiful for their ceremony and reception, held at Rye Harbor State Park, in Rye, NH. The site was a perfect fit with their “by the sea” theme. Jessica enjoyed the do-it-yourself aspect of wedding planning, creating bud vases from Perrier bottles with her father’s help, as well as votives for centerpieces, a remembrance table, and signage for the reception. Another delightful detail was the plane that flew by after their ceremony, trailing a banner that read “Congratulations Jessica and Anthony.” “It added so much to the ceremony,” says Jessica. “It was wonderful.”
