A Rustic Coast Guard Wedding at Bedford Village Inn in Bedford, New Hampshire
Tara Mead (25 and a military coast guard officer) and Cory Pray (25 and a military coast guard officer) held their wedding in Bedford, New Hampshire, where Tara grew up and most of her family lives. After a romantic Catholic ceremony at St. Elizabeth Seton Church, everyone moved to the Bedford Village Inn for the cocktail hour and reception. The couple chose a color palette of blue, aqua and teal. Soft baby's breath and pastel rose arrangements by Apotheca Flowers woven throughout the decor and bouquets brought out the rustic, romantic look of the wedding. A standout detail? The hints of the New England Patriots throughout the night! Cory proposed to Tara during a Patriots game at Gillette Stadium, so honoring the team was important to the couple. A groom's cake of the Patriots logo (made by Frederick's Pastries), a football by the wedding cake and the wedding party entering the reception to the Patriots celebration songs added a unique, personal touch to the couple's romantic wedding.
