Loon Mountain Resort - Lincoln, NH
Who doesn't love a mountaintop wedding in New Hampshire?! Meg + Ryan had a perfect summer wedding with a mountaintop ceremony, gondola ride, roaring dance party reception complete with an outdoor fire pit to end the night.
The day started with the bride and groom getting ready surrounded by their best friends which included lots of laughter and reminiscing on past times. Meg + Ryan opted out of a first look but Meg wanted one with her Dad so we headed down to the edge of the river to meet him. With a heartfelt hug and tears in their eyes they had a beautiful first look surrounded by Meg's sweet family.
A gondola ride to the top of the mountain is the perfect time to calm some pre-wedding nerves and take in all the spectacular views of the White Mountains. The ceremony took place at the very peak of Loon Mountain in Lincoln - the ceremony spot has a beautiful mountain back drop and even in the middle of summer it boasts a nice breeze to keep the guests cool and happy. As Meg was escorted down the aisle by her father you couldn't help by look over at Ryan and the huge smile on his face. The ceremony was sweet and funny as the officiant told some heartfelt stories about the couple and gave some good laughs. It was evident by the stories he told that not only are they the perfect couple but that EVERYONE adores them both.
Post - ceremony we snuck away for some quick mountaintop portraits of the lovely couple and their families before heading back down the gondola to cocktail hour and the reception.
Loon's reception area is unique by offering a large indoor space for tables, dancing and food but also a complimentary outdoor space complete with Adirondack chairs, fire pit and comfy seating for guests. They kicked off the reception with their first dance and some of the best speeches we have heard this year followed by the biggest dance party ever! This group was ready to have some fun and soon enough the whole party was out on the dance floor to party the night away!
Everything about their day was perfect and we know for sure that they will have the best marriage and we can't wait to find out what the future has in store! Congratulations Meg + Ryan!
