Laura Gerseny and John Fraser

October 17th, 2015
Hopkinton, NH

They say home is where the heart is, so for Laura and John, who were living and teaching in Albuquerque, NM, that meant having their wedding in New Hampshire near her hometown of Hopkinton. “Dimond Hill Farm is where my family has always bought produce.” says Laura. “I knew that was the place for us.”

What was planned as the quintessential outdoor ceremony overlooking the White Mountains and fall foliage ended up something of a washout. “I think it was right after Dad lifted my veil that the hail started, followed by pouring rain, so we all ran for the barn,” says Laura. “We had a few unexpected wedding guests buying produce as we said our vows.”

Guests gathered for the reception in the greenhouse. Set up with farm tables, autumn centerpieces and pies baked by Laura’s mom ad friends, the space was warm and cozy. “Everyone involved made our day incredibly special,” Laura says.
