A new venue for outdoor weddings right in Durham New Hampshire near the Lamprey River. Formally known as the Highland House, the original Thompson Inn and Cyderhouse buildings may date as far back as 1779, when a 60 acre plot of land where the Thompson Inn and Cyderhouse currently stand was conveyed to Captain Joseph Chesley. At that time, there were already mills located in the Lamprey River at Packers and Sullivan Falls nearby. This part of Durham was know for excellent apple orchards, and sometime before 1806 the “cyderhouse” was built. The property was owned by descendants of Captain Chesley, including the Wiggin Family until 1863 when William Woodman purchased the property. By the late 1860s, the Woodman cider mill became the hub of local cider and apple vinegar making. Continue reading →
Last week we placed Tents on House island in Portland Maine. This big wedding required more than one tent along with one of our biggest tents and lots of equipment. When you attempt to pull off a large wedding flawlessly on an Island in Portland Bay you better know what you are doing. First of all you need to deal with the 4 hour tides. If not done properly you may end up on the wrong side of the job for 4 hours. We arrived with this potential problem in mind. Continue reading →
Caterers, event halls and wedding planners are gearing up for fall wedding season, one of the busiest times of the year for hopeful couples. Fall guarantees exquisite photo opportunities without the heat of summer — and the wealth of in-season decorations are beautiful and affordable.
In fact, September and October are the most popular and third most popular months for weddings, respectively.
If you’re planning a fall wedding this season, read on for some helpful tips:
Keep warm. Since outdoor fall weddings have the potential to get chilly, keeping your guests warm is a must. Offer hot cocoa and homey baskets of soft blankets or cozy shawls. Set up fire pits or outdoor heating stations where guests can shake of the chill.
Location, location, location. Select a locale that is known for its fall scenery. For example, as much as it’s known for history, Valley Forge and Montgomery County, Pa. is celebrated for its brilliant autumnal hues and stunning landscape — a picture-perfect place for memorable fall nuptials in a historic area of southeastern Pennsylvania. Named among the top 10 national parks for fall foliage, the 3,500-acreValley Forge National Historical Park offers a perfect fall backdrop. Learn more at www.valleyforge.org.
Incorporate fall colors into the wedding party wardrobe. Chocolate brown compliments a variety of fall color schemes, and it’s flattering for most women. But if brown doesn’t suit the plans, burgundy is another great fall shade that makes the bridal white pop.
Select in-season flowers and decorations. Unless the bride has her heart set on lily of the valley or orchids, there are beautiful in-season flowers to choose from. Dahlias, chrysanthemums, asters, roses, zinnias and sunflowers all create elegant bouquets and floral displays with a lovely hint of fall. Add some crab apples for a playful, non-floral element.
Mix and match gourds, pumpkins and squash. Pumpkins can be tacky or a little too reminiscent of Halloween, so class them up by serving pumpkin soup, pumpkin cocktails or tiers of mini pumpkins. Gourds also make eye-catching vases, and all three can be arranged as charming centerpieces.

Your wedding will be one of the most memorable times of your life, and no one can capture it better than a professional photographer. So how do you find the right one? As you interview photographers, ask them these questions to help you determine if he or she is the right photographer for you.
Do you have a portfolio I can review?
Reviewing sample work allows you to see the photographer’s style. Is it more formal or candid? Look for images you can see yourself in. Think of three words that describe you and share those with your photographer. Continue reading →
