This is a wedding I have been enthusiastically awaiting for so long. From the time I first talked with Lauren about her vision for her and Brent’s wedding at The Preserve at Chocorua in Tamworth, NH, I knew that it was going to be breathtaking. And when you have such a stunning venue, the peaceful setting of White Mountains, and such incredibly sweet friends and family it is impossible to go wrong.
So many of the details you will see in their photographs were handmade by Lauren. From sewing table linens, to creating the eucalyptus, greenery, fern table numbers, and linen ceremony banner, Lauren pulled this vision together while simultaneously completing her residency as a doctor. Seriously…talk about combining the left and right sides of the brain! I could have easily guessed Lauren is a professional designer.
The words spoken to Lauren and Brent from her friends and family truly made this wedding special. The love and respect that so many people have for them were palpable. I knew I had to reach out to best man, Jonny Styron, to get his words just right. Jonny officiated the ceremony of his best friend, and his words were just perfect. Heartfelt, endearing, and absolutely hilarious all at once. Everyone at the reception was talking about his witty tree puns all night long (Lauren has a love for trees). From a portion of his service:
“My wish for you two is that your marriage be like a tree…
As you grow your roots, may you also not be afraid to continue to branch out – allowing each other to grow without leaf’ing the other behind.
And when one of you is down, the other maple you up again, letting you know it’ll be oak-ay.
May you continue to pine for each other as you do today, keeping your affection evergreen. And never be sycamore time together.
Lauren & Brent, I enjoyed every moment of your wedding day and wish you all the best in the years to come! Congratulations!
