I am a big believer that when people come into your life - there is a purpose. I met these amazing ladies about 4 years ago when I was a member of Pioneer Valley Crossfit. An incredible community of athletes that you could seriously consider like family. The continued unconditional support and love that I have received from this incredible community will forever be dear to my heart. I feel so blessed to have people like Ayn and Kate who entrusted me with their special day!
Kate & Ayn's incredible love for not only each other but for their family and friends in their lives made their wedding day absolutely amazing! Everywhere you looked there was a smile, a hug, love and so much laughter that you felt like you knew everyone your entire life. You could just see how much Ayn and Kate's generous hearts had touched each person who attended their wedding celebration. Every detail of their wedding day involved someone from their immediate circle. Whether it was a member of their Crossfit family or their closest family and friends - the outreach of support was so endearing. I have this incredible rush of pride knowing I was part of this day of Love and Happiness but even more humble that I was able to capture the memories of an incredible love celebration.
Alysons's Orchard located in the hills of Walpole, New Hampshire was a perfect venue to host Ayn and Kate's Wedding Day. The accommodations not only on property but slightly off property allowed their family and friends to continue their celebration all weekend. Fran, the event coordinator at Alysons' Orchard, ensured that every detail was in order from the ceremony to the reception. And Jackie from the Inn at Valley Farms hosted graciously the getting ready location and additional sleeping accommodations. Seriously Alysons's Orchard and Inn at Valley Farms have an incredible working relationship and it was obvious that they will do whatever it takes to make a bridal couple happy.
From Ayn arriving to the ceremony location with her "Pants" bridal party on vintage bicycles donated by Valley Bike and Ski Werks to Kate elegantly arriving on a horse-drawn carriage...Words cannot describe the marvelous scene of witnessing Kate & Ayn's love and dedication to each other. AND when their ceremony officiant starts with a line from the movie the "Princess Bride" ..."Mawage"....you just know that Ayn and Kate's life together was going to be filled with Love and Laughter.
It is my incredible honor to show a brief preview into one of the most spectacular wedding celebrations I have ever been a part of. Ayn and Kate your love is one that will be forever and I wish you both a marriage filled with joy, happiness and patience.
Lots of love,
