Durham, NH Wedding at the Three Chimneys Inn {Diane + Dan}

I am excited to share Diane and Dan's summer wedding in New Hampshire with you today! Diane and Dan are two of the kindest people I've ever met. They are so devoted to their family and friends, to their community, their church, and to their country. Dan served in the Marines and I actually met them through through one of Dan's roommates in the Marines who is now married to one of my closest friends. I'm lucky I did because I loved capturing and being a part of this beautiful wedding.

When it comes to details, I was absolutely smitten with Diane's dresses. {Yes, two!} She had a gorgeous lace ceremony dress and a big reveal fun party dress for the reception. Diane had the idea to do a first-look-esque moment to reveal her second dress to Dan and it was one of the sweetest things I've ever photographed. I absolutely loved sneaking away with the couple for a bit to capture the intimate moment.

And, for all of you DIYers out there, she actually made her and her bridesmaids' bouquets out of broaches! They were like nothing I have ever seen before. I love when couples add unique elements to their wedding day to make it truly their own. You'll also see below that in lieu of traditional getting ready photographs with Dan, he chose to spend the morning enjoying the Independence Day parade in Exeter, the location where the Declaration of Independence was delivered in 1776! The timing and location couldn't have been better!

Diane and Dan got married at their church in Exeter, NH and held their reception at Three Chimneys Inn in Durham. I'd be remiss to not mention Julie Jensen of Something Bleu because she was so incredibly helpful as their Day Of Coordinator. I highly recommend her to those getting married in New England. Having someone on hand can be such a help! Everything went off without a hitch and I'm so excited to now share a collection of their wedding day photographs with you!

I also would like to take a moment to offer my heartfelt condolences to the entire family. Dan and Diane recently lost Diane's mother's long-term boyfriend, Jim Muir. And while I only had the pleasure of meeting him on this one day, I can say that he was incredibly kind to me, a joy to have around, and someone who was smiling the entire day. My heart reaches out to all of yours during this sad time. For those feeling inspired, you can donate to his GoFundMe page that has helped to cover the funeral costs.

I'd like to extend a huge thank you to all of the vendors who were lovely to work with!
