Alex and Bekki discovered some interesting commonalities when they met at a bar in Haverhill, Massachusettes. Bekki is a high school ceramics teacher and Alex happens to enjoy ceramics as a hobby. They were also surprised to learn that Bekki’s apartment was located right next to Alex’s parent’s house. It was not long after their first meeting that they went out for their first date. 

On a trip to Bekki’s family’s lake house in Maine, Alex surprised her with his grandmother’s engagement ring in a handmade birch box one early morning on the front porch as she was reading. They decided to have their wedding in Bekki’s home town of Lyme, New Hampshire and they knew the are would be beautiful in the fall. Being a teacher herself, Bekki liked the idea of getting married in an old school house and the Lyme Academy Building had a wonderful old charm- plus enough space to comfortably fit all of their guests. The nearby Dartmouth Skiway had a post and beam interior that they both loved, plus a beautiful overlook of the mountain from the large deck.

Their color palette of slate blue, orange, and cream was perfect for a fall harvest theme. They had gorgeous centerpieces of pumpkins, gourds, bittersweet, and vines. Bekki’s mother made table runners with sunflowers on them and Bekki created ceramic acorns for decorations that doubled as favors. They used names of New Hampshire mountains for the different tables. Their love of New England was apparent and their wedding perfectly blended into the fall landscape.
