New Hampshire natives Ali Donnermeyer and Adam Whitman had an adventurous wedding-planning experience for their August 2020 nuptials — and that was before Ali’s mother was hospitalized with COVID-19. Living in Colorado, they wanted their community of international friends and family to understand that New Hampshire wasn’t all woods and moose; they wanted their guests to experience the beauty of the Seacoast where they had grown up boating and beaching along New Hampshire’s 18-mile coastline. After a rigorous search, the perfect wedding venue finally turned up — a picturesque location overlooking a sailboat-dotted marina on the Atlantic Ocean. In September…

June 22, 2019 York, Maine Emily and Scott were both living in Boston when they met on Match.com. They started dating in January of 2017 and one year later they were engaged with a June 2019 wedding date. Emily knew she definitely wanted to get married in Maine. Her parents had bought a house in Kittery Point a few years ago after summering in a rented house for many years. That house was Emily’s first choice. “I didn’t want to get my hopes up too high,” says Emily, “before I even knew if it was even doable.” Doable it was—with…

In truth, Stephanie always had an idea they would marry. “One month…

November 7, 2019 Cape Neddick, Maine They say third time’s the charm, and that certainly proved true in the love story of Jenny and Ian. They first met and fell in love straight out of high school, and within a year Ian had joined the Air Force. After two years—and several periods of Ian being away for training— their paths took them in different directions. A few years later they met up again and sparks flew, but Ian was stationed too far away for things to work out. Fast forward to 2017, when amazingly their lives intersected for the third…

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…

September 21, 2019 Ogunquit, Maine The beauty of art and the picturesque town of Ogunquit were two special ingredients Amanda knew she wanted to incorporate into her wedding day. Her love of art led her to get a Bachelor’s of Fine Art in printmaking, and she and Andrew chose Ogunquit as their very first vacation spot more than six years ago—and they’ve continued vacationing there every year since. The result of combining these two things? A lovely waterfront ceremony and reception at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, which Amanda said had just started allowing weddings shortly before they booked…

September 28, 2019 Rowley, Massachusetts Tony Shipani planned to surprise Cailin Fitzpatrick while on vacation: He envisioned proposing to her with an engagement ring that he had designed. Things took a turn when the ring got lost in the mail. On a balmy summer day, Tony resorted to his back-up plan: bringing Cailin (and their dog Benny) to their favorite park. “I turned back twice because it was so hot,” says Cailin. “I wanted nothing to do with it.” Tony caught Cailin off guard when he sank to his knee and asked her to marry him. Cailin remembers the moment…

June 22, 2019 Rye, New Hampshire Brianna and Eric met in their freshman year at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Although she had “zero interest” in Eric at first, she finally agreed to a date—and within a month knew for sure he was “the one.” Knowing she was a huge planner, Eric proposed on a trip to the Bahamas in December 2017 with a June 2019 wedding in mind and immediately asked his bride-to-be: “Is a year and a half enough time to plan?” It was, but she started immediately. The couple admits that around six months prior to their date, they…

George offered them a ride home. Elinor and George sat in front continuing their easy going conversation. But Elinor had a boyfriend and that was that. Until six months later. George found her on Tinder. She had broken up with the boyfriend. And…

August 31, 2019 Wells, Maine Yes, people really do find their soulmates through online dating, as Caroline can attest to. “I had been living in Orlando six months and decided to give online a try,” she explained. “Rich was my second date—I was lucky to find the real thing right away!” When the time came to get married, there was no hesitation about where the wedding would be held. It had to be in Wells, near the Shaw family’s seasonal home on Drakes Island, where Caroline has vacationed her whole life. Their wedding, held over Labor Day weekend, was mostly…
