Aussie Invasion

When you live in New England, it’s easy to forget the beauty that surrounds us on a daily basis. So when I hear people come here for a destination wedding, I often wonder, “why?” only to remind myself that the New England area is an utterly stunning piece of landscape and history that offers endless fun activities throughout the year. Although, New England weather is always a gamble (but that’s ok, because you’re under a waterproof Sperry tent!) when the sun is shining and the skies are cloudless, the natural splendor of NE is one of a kind. The real question is, why would anyone go anywhere else??

Which is exactly what this young couple had in mind! These two Aussies found the perfect location for their rustic New England wedding. Lake Falls Lodge near Keene, NH offers an Adirondack lodge, designed by Augustus Shephard, which is completely off the utility grid. The three-day extravaganza was powered entirely by solar power and natural gas and used the beautiful landscape as the the stage for all of their events from the lobster bake rehearsal dinner, to the outdoor ceremony and a cozy tented reception. (Talk about an eco-friendly wedding.) The bride designed all of the signage for the celebration and the kiddies had the distinct pleasure of decorating the wedding cake! From the Vera Wang gown to the New England themed cookie cutter favors, this fun red, white and tangerine wedding will melt your heart… I promise!
