Karen & Yvan, New Hampshire Wedding: Makes Your Heart Beat Louder

Karen and Yvan eloped a year ago in snowy & romantic Quebec City. A few months later, they celebrated on the New Hampshire coast with their close family and friends. It was so amazing to be there and celebrate their marriage. I just happened to be there the day their love story began! Yvan was the officiant at Marissa & Heath’s Fall 2007 wedding (one of the first featured on my old blog) and Karen was a bridesmaid. Of course, I had no idea two people were meeting and falling in love – I was preoccupied with capturing the wedding at hand. When I heard from Karen about her own wedding (and that it was to Yvan), it just made me smile. Here are some of my favorites from their Rye, NH wedding…


I love Karen’s short fun vintage-inspired dress (and sunglasses)!

The tent where the reception was held was so beautiful and looked amazing against the clear blue sky we had that afternoon!

It was a gorgeous day! I’d like to give a special shout-out to The White Apron for their amazing and beautiful and delicious food! I might have to post some photos of it separately! Karen and Yvan, happy one-year anniversary! May the honeymoon phase NEVER end!
