Talk about a treat! Cupcakes are definitely the rage at weddings and events these days, so I’m really excited that the Mount Washington Valley now has it’s own cupcakery! The Iannuzzi family opened The White Mountain Cupcakery a few years ago now and their popularity has gone nation wide. They are available to make cup cakes (check out all their flavors) and wedding cakes and cookies of all sizes! Did I mention they WON Cupcake Wars on the Food Network! Stop in to see their winning display!

Just across the street from the White Mountain Cupcakery…. It’s My Girlfriends! It’s fun to see what elopement couples choose to wear for their wedding day. I have seen it all, from custom dresses imported from Scotland, to shorts and hiking boots. Whatever your budget and taste, one place worth stopping off is It’s My Girlfriends – a consignment boutique in North Conway, NH. Swing in and see Alice’s wide array of bridal gowns and evening wear, formal dresses, and accessories. You won’t go home empty handed… or hungry! Stop off at both local North Conway businesses for big a “treat” in your wedding planning. Save money shopping, and grab some cup cakes for the celebration after :)

What are your plans for your summer elopement in the White Mountains? Do you have a photographer? Videographer? Florist? Is anyone doing your hair, nails, and makeup? Get in touch to book your photo or video services. Most elopement couples choose to wed during the week or on Sundays. It’s a great way to avoid crowds and save on accommodations.
Hi Meg, We just wanted to thank you for taking pictures of our special day. The pictures are absolutely wonderful! We love them :) I have already gotten them developed and they are magnificent. You do great work and wanted you to know that you are greatly appreciated.
Thanks again - S & B

Tis the season! Make your plans now… Small weddings are a Jackson speciality. There are so many incredible places to sneak away with a few close friends and family. Jackson Falls always provides a stunning backdrop for ceremonies, and the Thompson House Eatery is a popular destination for a casual reception with incredible food. All this in Jackson, NH!
Meg and her partner Dave did a fabulous job at our wedding! They did everything we asked and they just blended into the group. It felt like they were actually our guests! We highly recommend both of them! – Kristy and Jason Celebrated in July
Reception/Food: Thompson House Eatery
Flowers: Jane VanLoon
Hair: The Cut Off Salon and Day Spa
Transportation: The Village Trolley

North Conway Elopements are conveniently located near the valleys best shopping, dining, and loads of lodging properties. You are also really close to some super fun scenic spots for photos. The Conway Scenic RR and nearby views at the North Conway Country Club provide an excellent backdrop. Of course, some couples may prefer to take a scenic train ride while they are here. The RR does run during some weekends in the winter, and when this couple went into the ticket office they did get a round of applause from waiting passengers. How will you spend your time in the White Mountains? Check the local Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce website for additional ideas. If you want my take on winter activities, read more here.

Every NH Elopement should include a Moose! We stopped off at Zeb’s General Store in North Conway Village for a photo op to celebrate the location of their first date. Zeb’s is a perfect place to go to make yourselves a gift basket of White Mountain memories you may want to indulge in while you are here, or take home as a gift to yourselves. Zeb’s is one of those old fashioned country stores you want to visit over and over again. Always a reason to return!

Like most people, I’m sure you are swamped at work and just want to plan this as easy as possible. When it comes to getting your marriage license and planning the ceremonial aspect of your elopement, a great resource I’m always pointing couples to is KimTheJP.com. Kim is Jackson’s resident JP and a Lieutenant on the Jackson Fire Department! Check out this video, It’s a great way to get to know Kim. She’s easy to talk to, prompt to respond to emails, and always on time. I love working with Justice of the Peace Kim Steward!

The Inn at Ellis River in Jackson, NH is perfect for intimate weddings. They have great package options for couples to do all inclusive elopements complete with cake and champagne. Peak at their website for details. I love to photograph elopements because they are so intimate and laid back – never a huge rush to stick to a time schedule because its typically just the couple, the JP and I. Kim the JP performed the ceremony. Kim has a great website, so if you are planning a wedding and don’t know where to start with ideas for a ceremony, go to KimTheJP.com. The Inn at Ellis River has a great personal touch. They help with everything and really go the extra mile. The Inn at Ellis River is quaint, private, right on the river, and in the warm months they have an in-ground pool for you to relax by!
The pictures came out BEAUTIFULLY!! You have magical talents as a photographer. I never looked so good!! We cannot thank you enough!! Dawn R.

Late Fall Elopements in Jackson New Hampshire are perfect at the Snowflake Inn. It’s still warm enough for cuddly outside photographs right on property. Beautiful grounds no matter what the season. Then cozy up and say your “I-do’s” by the fireplace with in house Justice of the Peace Jane Galloway. Congratulations to the happy couple for making their first time to Jackson, NH and the Snowflake Inn, a memorable one.
