August, 2008 in Rye

"We had a PHENOMENAL wedding...the casual-yet-classy oceanside ceremony we wanted, while treating our guests to a traditional NE Lobster and Clambake! We were surprised by a sudden summer storm (luckily while dinner was being served and we were all under the tend), but it made for great post-storm/ceremony photos against the stone wall and the ocean!

We'd recommend the Seacoast area to anyone!!"

Ceremony & Reception:

Odiorne State Park

Rye, NH, US

"The location was beautiful...and our guests loved it. We had to do a little tent/table re-arranging due to heavy rains in the week...which is expected with an outdoor venue. However, the bathrooms were ABSOLUTELY filthy...to the point where my aunt had to clean them the night before!!! We were promised they would be clean. Also, the woman who is the "volunteer" who coordinates the weddings was quite full of herself and demanded things like a copy of my guest list a couple of days before the wedding. Sites do not do that, nor was it even viewed by the gate attendant that day. She was the only stressful part of my wedding...her attitude and demeanor are not befitting someone who represents the State Park system or the Seacoast. I would like to say a big thank you to the lady in Concord who helped me navigate the necessary event insurance....SHE was really great."
