A Weekend in New Hampshire

Sanbornton, NH wedding

This past weekend, Dan and I took a quick trip to New Hampshire for our friends’ wedding in Sanbornton, New Hampshire. It was a whirlwind weekend, in the best way possible. Here’s a recap…

NYC --> NH!

Early Saturday morning, we caught a bus from Manhattan to Hanover, New Hampshire, which I now know is one of the most convenient and low-stress (although pricey) ways to travel from NYC to NH. Check out those “executive-style” seats–good enough for a nap.

My Mom lives five minutes from the bus stop, so she met us with delicious BLTs from the King Arthur Flour Café in hand–thanks, Ma! Then, we changed, packed the car with pillows, sleeping bags, and a tent, and headed for Sanbornton.

DIY New Hampshire Wedding

The wedding was hosted at Longlook Farm, a beautiful 200-acre property with a pond, rustic barn, stone walls, apple trees, and incredible mountain views. And the bride and groom added their own touch with a two-piece custom built beer trough (made by the groom!), entertaining wedding props, colorful outfit details, and a delicious burger bar.



Then Sunday afternoon was spent napping and lounging by/in Dan’s parents’ pond. One thing we miss so much about living in New England is easy access to lakes, ponds, and rivers for swimming. In NYC, it’s either a crowded pool or a minimum of an hour train ride to the nearest beach. So, we finally got to swim in the pond last weekend! It’s funny what you miss, isn’t it?

Happy Friday and I hope everyone has a great weekend! xx


PS. A fun Vermont weekend & wedding.
