Nealee & Olin
Sept. 4, 2010 at Camp St. Croix in Hudson
Nealee Hamel and Olin Morrison kept a simple theme for their big day: low cost, high love. After dating more than five years, Olin proposed by carving the big question into a pumpkin, and they began planning their Camp St. Croix wedding soon after. The wedding day was a true collaboration, as most of the décor was made with the helping hands of friends and family. Olin, with the assistance of Nealee's stepfather, carved all of the birch wood candel centerpieces, Olin's great aunt made homemade chocolates to use as favors and Olin's grandmother baked the cake. Meanwhile, Nealee's sister arranged the boutonnieres and the bridesmaids' hair pieces, and other flower decorations, assembled by Nealee's mother, were bought at the local farmers' market. For their honeymoon, Nealee and Olin drove around the North Shore, visiting state parks and wineries, and are hoping to plan a longer trip to Jamaica soon.
