Valerie and Michael were married at the bride’s family property in the woods of New Hampshire. Valerie grew up spending summers there and knew it was the perfect place to bring family and friends. Her vision became reality as she walked through the forest in a long sweeping gown made by her friend, designer Thakoon Panichgul.
The couple married in a nearby white clapboard church, and after the ceremony, guests walked a forest path through the property that descends over a small bridge and along a brook before opening to a large meadowed clearing. Fireworks exploded over the trees as the final toasts finished, and the bride and groom danced into the night in a sailcloth tent.
