What can we say about Emily and Doug? We LOVE them and this beautiful autumn wedding in the mountains. Emily and Doug met in the White Mountains and have a love of all things rock climbing. The Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa is breathtaking with its panoramic views and exceptional, one-of-a-kind spaces – the perfect locale!
While the ladies were putting their finishing touches for the day ahead, the gentlemen donned suits with rope boutonnieres. A sweet bouquet of soft pinks, whites, and greens complemented Emily’s classic lace wedding gown. Because Emily and Doug wanted to maximize spending time with their loved ones they decided to have a First Look against a beautiful backdrop overlooking the White Mountains.
After wrapping up formals, we made our way over to the ballroom for the wedding ceremony. Sipping on champagne, guests gathered in the Crystal Ballroom which showcases a beautiful hand-painted dome and restored chandelier. Bringing the outside in, Emily and Doug brought in lots of organic elements to balance the space with a warm natural feel.
The wedding ceremony was officiated by Emily’s brother and was personal, sweet and filled with laughter. Immediately following the ‘I do’s’, the bride and groom snuck off for a quick private moment and returned for introductions. While the celebrating continued with cocktails, a serious game of giant Jenga was played. First dances made way for heartfelt toasts and dinner. Opting for a pie-cutting instead, a full spread of delicious pies were on display for dessert. The ensemble of vendors were wonderful to work with including the lovely team at the resort. We are thrilled for Emily and Doug and so thankful to be a part of this day.
