It’s finally time to highlight one of my all time favorite destination weddings. This intimate New Hampshire family property, was the perfect backdrop for Ben and Anne Russell to celebrate their love of natures beauty and sustainable lifestyle. I just happen to be good friends with the couple, and had the honor of joining the festivities as a guest and wedding vendor! Ben and Anne Russell have moved all over the country with their shared love of the outdoors, and traveling with their adorable pups. When it was finally time to say their vows, they knew they wanted to honor that spirit, and choose Ben’s incredible family property, tucked in the mountains in Thornton, New Hampshire. This homestead featured, gardens, greenhouses, chickens, goats, and a few bears… which luckily didn’t make any wedding day appearances. There were so many special touches to this intimate wedding, like getting married in the same orchard as Ben’s parents from 30 years earlier. All of their friends and family traveled to this magical destination and were able to spend a weekend sharing personal stories and confirmation of just how well matched this couple is! 

We were so lucky for the gorgeous clear skies, and rain free wedding day as a huge storm rolled through the east coast just 24 hours later. Check out all of the highlights from this homestead destination wedding in the White Mountains of New Hampshire!
