The ocean was the backdrop for this tented wedding held in New Hampshire. Watching Tara and James wedding come together was so much fun. From small touches like Tara arriving in a pedi-cab to seeing James in his fuchsia tie that matched her shoes, this wedding was filled with splashes of color and whimsy!
It was no surprise that Tara and James meet on a basketball court, everything about them was unique and vibrant! And that played a role in the couples wedding. The ceremony itself was held at an old circular naval shore gun in-placement, located at the NH state park right on the ocean, that made for such a unique set-up. Tara and James walked cross the bridge they created and stood with the officiant in the center and was surrounded by the bridal party on either sides. Small touches including a mini basketball net placed on a pillow held the rings and guests blew bubbles as the wedding party exited the ceremony.
Added touches like, signature cocktails, special liquor from Sweden (where James proposed), chocolate basketballs and the color orange were part of the fun feel. A glow box with a basketball player was set up next to the band and of coarse the wedding party changed into colored sneakers for the dancing. This wedding was a true party filled with lots of dancing, laughter and celebration!
