Just because you’re getting married surrounded by nature doesn’t mean your wedding has to be rustic.
Sophia + Rich embraced all things classic and elegant for their outdoor wedding in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire. Full of happy memories of ski trips with Rich’s family in the area, the two tied the knot at Toad Hill Farm on a crisp September day. Planner Sorrell Downing made sure every sophisticated detail shined, and the gorgeous scenery was a perfect backdrop.
And thanks to Avonné Photography we get to take a peek at this stunning, love-filled day.

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding
Our favorite memory would be the ceremony. It was a beautiful setting with all of our people. We shed a lot of happy tears, it was a very special moment. Another highlight would be the dancing, everyone seemed to love Sophia’s first dance with her mom.
