This seaside NH wedding day was one for the books! From their dog Olivia’s guest appearance at the ceremony, to Michelle’s chorus performance, to Dave’s epic entrance, this day had me laughing as many times as I was crying!
Michelle and Dave both love being near the water, so they decided to plan their gorgeous celebration by the sea. Dave was hoping to make a grand entrance to the ceremony by boat and even built a dock for the venue to make his dream come true. Halfway out into the water, the motor stopped working! Thank goodness there were these two kind souls who towed Dave and his friends into the shore. So even though it wasn’t quite the entrance Dave had envisioned, I’d say it was definitely equally as epic and unforgettable! Make sure to scroll to see Dave’s entrance!
Michelle’s 90-year-old grandmother, Perviz, was an absolute spit-fire all day! She had us cracking up while Michelle was getting ready, especially after she told us she was hungover from the night before (she had two shots of tequila and a glass of wine! And that’s definitely two more shots of tequila than I can drink – she’s such a champ). Perviz was also the officiant and performed a beautiful ceremony at Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion and at the end of the night, she had quite the moves on the dance floor!
Michelle and Dave, you two are such a sweet couple and it was an absolute joy capturing your love amongst all of your closest family and friends (and Olivia!)! I am so excited to share what a beautiful day it was! Thanks to all of the amazing vendors below for making this day possible!
