Hilary Baker & Tyson Calistro
Hilary Baker and Tyson Calistro were married on October 1, 2016, at Indian Head Resort in Lincoln. Photography by Philbrick Photography.
The wedding day in a word: Memorable Wedding theme: Aviation/travel with fall floral and cake elements Favorite moment for Hilary: Watching Tyson dance with his 98-year-old grandmother, Esther. There are moments that easily fill your heart with emotion and leave you teary-eyed and speechless; this was one of those moments. Favorite moment for Tyson: The first dance. We took dance lessons from our friend, Gene Cobb, who performs in competitions. After a lot of practicing, beginning two months before the wedding, we nailed it and were able to complete all the moves we learned. Our guests had no clue we planned this! Biggest surprise: My photographer asked the manager of the venue if we could limb the tower to take the firework pictures. I didn't have any plans on climbing all those stairs in my dress (the heels came off for this one), but I'm sure glad I did! We got spectacular shots and had the best view to watch the show. Piece of advice: Be as present in the moment as you can, because each aspect of the day goes by fast. Don't waste any time being nervous or worried about anything! Where they live: Middleboro, Mass. Honeymoon location: One week in Port Douglas, Australia, followed by one week in Gold Coast, Australia Favorite honeymoon moment: Since we scheduled an extreme day-after photo shoot with our photographer and had guests from Florida, Hawaii and Texas stay a few days after the wedding, we decided to stick around Lincoln, NH, with our out-of-town family and postpone our honeymoon. We took off to Australia on March 22! It was great to still have something to look forward to after the wedding. Occupations: Hilary, civil and environmental engineer; Tyson, first officer pilot for Republic Airways
