A Wedding in New Hampshire

Among the most beautiful of the New England states, New Hampshire has been attracting visitors for well over 200 years. This is especially true of the Lakes Region, a wonderful place for a wedding in New Hampshire. Each season has its own special charms, making this region a year round destination for weddings and honeymoons, home to a broad range of local accommodations and amenities, many well-experienced at wedding hosting and planning. Because there is so much to do and enjoy throughout the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, many couples, as part of their New Hampshire wedding planning, choose to spend all or part of their honeymoon in the area.

Spectacular Beauty - The Perfect Backdrop

Lakes and mountains offer stunning views, their spectacular beauty the perfect backdrop for one of life's most meaningful events. The Lakes Region in New Hampshire is made up of five lakes, and the largest of these lakes is Lake Winnipesauke, which means "the smile of the Great Spirit" in the language of the Native Americans that once inhabited the region. In addition to the gorgeous shoreline locations, there are beautiful islands and spectacular vistas overlooking the lake offering unique New Hampshire wedding opportunities.

The other lakes in the region include Newfound Lake, Lake Winnisquam, Squam Lake, and Lake Wentworth. This region is the ideal setting for an autumn wedding, with the glorious colors of the trees during the fall foliage season. Winter weddings are also popular in this region, everything so white and wonderful, with scenes reminiscent of those you'd see portrayed by Currier and Ives. Springtime is always beautiful on the lakes, and during the summertime, many choose to top off the day with dinner and a lake cruise. The mountains in the region also attract those seeking a one of a kind wedding experience. Red Hill, the Ossipee Mountains, and the Belknap Range have many popular wedding sites, as well as an assortment of those quiet, private little nooks.

Let Local Experience Enhance the Event

Planning a New Hampshire wedding is easier when you rely on local experience. The most beautiful locations are nearly always little hidden gems, almost jealously guarded by locals, in hopes of protecting them from the commercialization that too many tourists tend to bring. It is local planners that will be the source of romantic hideaways and quaint bed and breakfasts. They will whisper the names of the best bakers, caterers, and florists. If choosing a larger venue for a bigger wedding, it is best to select one with strong experience in wedding planning, especially if there will be a lot of out of town guests in attendance.

For those that love the New England region, a New Hampshire wedding in the midst of such a wealth of natural beauty is a wonderful way to celebrate all that the vows of marriage signify. With so many beautiful locations to choose from, with settings perfect for each season, New Hampshire has much to offer to those hoping to create wedding memories to last a lifetime.
