Danielle Carbonneau + Tyler Abbott

September 14, 2019

Harrisville, New Hampshire

Mayfair Farm was central in Tyler and Danielle’s planning. What first drew them to this location? “I loved that it is very natural,” says Danielle. “It’s not pretentious.” The apple orchard on site was another draw, reminiscent of the orchard near Danielle’s childhood home. “I wanted our wedding to be simple, clean, unassuming,” she says. “And really, really fun. The dancing was one of the most important parts.”

Getting ready on her wedding day, Danielle kept the movie The Wedding Singer on repeat in the background. “Then, all of a sudden, we had to be out in 30 minutes,” she remembers. Chaos ensued: Her sister’s infant twins started crying, her earrings and necklace got stuck together, and nobody could untangle them.

The scene was different for Tyler at a nearby hotel. For him, the biggest hiccup faced was tying his bowtie. “I had to go to a men’s clothing store in Keene, so they could tie it for me,” he says laughing. “I don’t think I was the first person to ask them to do that!”

Five years ago, Danielle and Tyler met by chance at a local bar. “We were inseparable after that.” Danielle wanted to wait before they got married. “I felt like we had to be together for four years before we thought about marriage,” she says. “But, honestly, I probably knew before that.” They tied the knot in September surrounded by their friends and (lots) of family. “It was a really beautiful day.”
