merrimack-valley-weddingMerrimack Valley is home to the most populated cities in the state, including Manchester, Nashua, and Concord—the state’s capitol. Visit the Krista McAuliffe Planetarium for some stargazing and wish upon a wedding dream come true. The NH Motor Speedway in Loudon draws in over 500,000 race fans a season, so rev up your engine for some excitement. Manchester’s historic mill buildings are a throwback to the industrial revolution in NH and a source of inspiration.

The internationally renowned Currier Museum of art displays the works of Frank Lloyd Wright and Andy Warhol. What a perfect location to showcase your love! A huge winding staircase just beckons for group photos and romantic, flowing dress shots. As an added bonus, couples tying the knot at the Currier receive a private tour and a year’s membership.

Pay homage to a legend and inspire guests by using art as a guestbook. Purchase a blank canvas and divide it into squares, have an artistic friend or professional create a simple text or visual that represents your wedding day in the center, then provide markers in your wedding colors and allow guests to color the rest and leave messages. You can continue the theme with miniature easels holding table numbers in black and white with markers-turned flowers-set in a small vase. Use colors that pop in eccentric combinations like lime and hot pink to wow guests.
