Rachael and Brandon were married at the cozy Bedford Village Inn in Bedford, NH. After swiping right, and a little hesitation on Racheal’s part, the two had their first date over 6 years ago in Boston and have since moved to sunny California to continue their adventures!
The couple chose the Bedford Village Inn as their venue after staying there on a vacation and falling in love with it and its rustic charm. Brandon and Rachael were really looking forward to being surrounded by their family and friends, many of whom would be meeting for the first time. Although the couple had previously eloped, this time everyone joined in and the bride and groom couldn’t wait to celebrate and dance the night away with them all.
We started our day with the bride and groom at their ceremony. Rachael and Brandon had taken so much care in personalizing the central courtyard garden with lovely decor. From their smoked glass sign to the blush pink and white florals with the overhead string lights and fountain bubbling in the background it was an absolute dreamy place to gather with family and friends. The hazy sky only added to the cozy feeling during cocktail hour and the rain was so generous to hold off so everyone could enjoy the location to its fullest!
Next it was on to the reception. The room was dressed with pink, ivory and gold and glittering accents. The couple entered to loud cheers and strutted their way to the dance floor, ready for a sweet first dance. Another wonderful moment from the day was the Chinese Tea Ceremony in which the bride and groom served tea to the elder members of their families as a sign of respect and to honor the joining of the two families. Parent dances and heartfelt toasts followed and finally the dance floor was open and it was finally time to really celebrate!
Brandon and Rachael, thank you for making us part of your lovey wedding day! It was our pleasure to be there for you!
