Romance Blooms at the Historic Fells Estate

Inspiration from one of NH's finest settings



(page 1 of 7)

One late summer day, we went to “The Fells” in Newbury, an 84-acre estate perched on a hillside overlooking Lake Sunapee. It was once the summer home of John Hay, private secretary to Abraham Lincoln and secretary of state under presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt. The estate’s 22-room Colonial Revival home and renowned gardens became the backdrop for our inspiration shoot featuring gorgeous gowns and, as day turned to evening, the elegant details of a wedding celebration.

This embroidered soutache lace, fit and flare gown with cap sleeves features a modest illusion Sabrina neckline in front, but sexy illusion V in back. A chapel-length train and satin bridal buttons complete the look.
