Out of the Jurisdiction: Squam Lake

We visited Squam Lake in New Hampshire two weeks ago.  Daughter Susie is getting married next year.  She wants an outdoor wedding at the place we vacationed when she was a teenager.

I think it will work.  What do you think?

Looks like a lovely setting! Will the bride and her father arrive in a canoe at the dock during the processional?

It looks like an idyllic spot for a wedding, and everyone will enjoying being away for the weekend. It also reflects well on her family memories from growing up.

Randy said...

That spot would be perfect. What a day it will be.

Looks like a great location for a wedding...just make sure to have a bad weather plan : )

Karen Xavier said...

Oh, its lovely... I'm sure she'll like it. Tranquil and beautiful.

Dawn said...

Oh MOST DEFINITELY!!!! Just LOVELY!
(Although I would find it hard not to jump in one of those canoes and paddle away before I said "I DO"!!!!

Steffe said...

Not a bad setting for a wedding.

Edita said...

a very lovely place! What a great choice!

thanks for the comment:) You know a lot about golf...good for you:) I have never played golf:)

Elenka said...

Yeah, especially if you want to tell someone in the wedding party to go jump in the lake!
Where did you stay? You probably know that's the lake Golden Pond was filmed on.

VP said...

If this is the place, she is absolutely right!

Nathalie said...

What a wonderful setting!
I'd be dead scared of an outdoor location in case the weather goes wrong, but perhaps you can count on good weather if she marries in summer.

Plan it! (and a backup plan in case you get a rare hurricane!)

This is a beautiful setting, Jack.

Bises,

Oh what a backdrop for wedding photo's, as long as it's not one of those, 'just a bit to the left, now to the right....splash!!' situations. No seriously Jack, your daughter has style, it looks idyllic.

EG Wow said...

Oh my goodness. I spent two summers on Little Squam Lake when I was a teenager. I'm pretty sure our paths have crossed, Jack!

jennyfreckles said...

Looks idyllic - avoid the hurricane season...

Halcyon said...

What a beautiful scene. Perfect for a fall or spring outdoor wedding!

SRQ said...

Nothing like the fresh water lakes up north. Nothing. Glad Dad is into the wedding planning! What an exciting year you have ahead of you. The official wedding photographer should be nervous!

Rachel said...

Oh, yes! It will work! So pretty! Have y'all chosen a photographer yet? Has Susie been reading wedding blogs. My very favorite one is "Style Me Pretty". They have a ton of outdoor weddings on there and she will find a lot of great ideas. I hope that you will share some of the wedding photos. I am so excited for y'all. This venue will be so special and beautiful. I can just image them out in that green canoe in their wedding clothes. So fun!
