September 11, 2021 Rye, NH A love for the New Hampshire Seacoast led Ariana and Dylan to choose Odiorne Point and the Seacoast Science Center as their wedding venue. The couple met in 2010 as freshmen at Bentley University. “Our roommates were an item, and we got dragged along on their dates,” says Ariana. “They eventually broke up, and we’re still together after a decade.” Ariana was going for a “Seacoast organic look, like we had walked along the beach and gathered the flowers.” Other coastal touches included some of the groomsmen’s custom jellyfish-print jacket linings and a tabletop boat…

Bailey Jones + Ryan Heber August 21, 2021 Ipswich, MA A simple backyard wedding at her in-laws’ historic residence, lovingly known as the Blueberry Farm, was exactly what Bailey was looking for. “It’s so beautiful, it was already the perfect venue,” she says. “I always knew we’d have our wedding there. We thought it would be fun if our guests could wander through the bushes picking blueberries to take home.” The overall wedding look was meant to be light and airy, “like a posh backyard summer party,” Bailey explains. “I just wanted everything laid-back and casual.” That meant cool blue…

July 31, 2021 North Haven Island, ME A serendipitous visit to North Haven Island and Turner Farm led Josh to discover the perfect wedding site. “I’d been there a few years before Laura and I met, and I thought, ‘Wow, this would be a great place to be married!’” says Josh. Laura adds, “It’s so special there. It felt like a destination wedding even though we were just off the mid-coast of Maine.” Some guests arrived by ferry, others by private charter boat—the only ways to arrive on-island.

When he came to my door, I swear I’ve never had butterflies like that before!” The couple chose Cape Elizabeth for their wedding because it’s close to where they first lived together in South Portland, when Derek was…

August 29, 2020 Waldoboro, Maine Jake and Danielle have been together since high school. “It has been pretty special to change and grow together over the years,” says Danielle.

Once they visited the property, they knew it was the right choice. The…

August 17, 2019 Durham, New Hampshire Karen and Ryan met online, her username was “hikergirl” and that was a good sign for him. Three years after meeting, they were living in Salem, MA. The day they got engaged, they spent the afternoon walking around town and playing skee-ball at the arcade. Ryan managed to find a much quieter place at the Salem Willows Park, away from the crowds, with the ocean as their backdrop to pop the question.      The couple wanted their wedding somewhere more rural, in the woods, where they could gather all their family and friends.…
