For those seeking warmth, inspiration and romance, we present images of local couples on their special day. The stories of how they met, fell in love and were married take us from Plum Island to Punta Cana, but they all have something in common: the Merrimack Valley.
Margaret + Sarah
When Sarah was sitting through her freshmen orientation at St. Anselm College in Manchester, N.H., a professor told her that 75 percent of the school’s alumni end up marrying other alumni. “No way, not me,” she thought to herself. Six years later she married Margaret, who had graduated from the college two years before her. The brides held their wedding at Pats Peak ski resort in Henniker, N.H. Each chose an item of significance to wear on their special day. Sarah had part of her late grandfather’s shirt sewn into her dress, while Margaret wore her grandmother’s ring to honor her memory.
