Rye, New Hampshire Tented Wedding | Private Estate | Chris and Shannon

Chris and Shannon were married at St. Theresa's Church in Rye, New Hampshire, with their reception following at Shannon's parents home just down the street. Chris and Shannon met while Chris was working for Shannon's Mother. Her Mom thought they would hit it off, and they did! Lucky for Chris, since he still works for Shannon's Mom! These two are the sweetest, most laid back and fun couple. Their personalities came through on their wedding day by having a relaxed reception at home, surrounded by their closest friends and family. They used photos of themselves on each table, had a family friend bake the wedding cake, asked their guests to write personal notes on fabric that will later be made into a quilt, and the bride even made jam for her guests to take home with them. Thanks for asking me to be part of your day! Congratulations Shannon and Chris!

One of my favorite details of the 2014 season was that the bride and bridesmaids' bouquets were in baskets, and the colorful combination of the bright blue, pinks and corals.
