Liz Steinhardt and Brooks Pollock

A lakeside fall wedding

Liz Steinhardt and Brooks Pollock were married on September 4, 2010 at a private lakside residence in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. The ceremony took place on the home's dock with extra guests overlooking the couple from the deck above. Bright, vibrant colors – especially the bridesmaids' dresses – were a running theme throughout the wedding. All photos by Birch Blaze Photography.

How They Met

Through mutual friends, Brooks and I met nearly eight years ago while both attending school in Newport, R.I. After spending five years in a long-distance relationship, I made the big move from Manhattan to Manchester, N.H. A year after living together, and while enjoying dinner together at our favorite wine bar, Corks at the Bedford Village Inn, a puff pastry box was presented as an appetizer. It was holding my engagement ring. Brooks and I tied the knot one late, sunny summer day on Lake Winnipesaukee with our closest friends and family members in attendance.
