Red, White, and I Do: Jaime & Bryan in Bethlehem, NH

When Bryan met Jaime on a business trip six years ago, they immediately hit it off. The only problem was that he lived in Boston and she in Arkansas. Still, a long-distance friendship soon blossomed into a long-distance romance. Jaime, a single mom of three, knew the sacrifices Bryan would have to make if they were ever to marry, but on their first Christmas together, Bryan popped the question. "He told me how much he loved me and the kids," she recalls—and the rest is history!
 

Red roses and white peonies made a lush bridal bouquet.

Jaime's favorite moment: "During the ceremony, my two-year-old popped his head through Bryan's legs, as if it were a game of peek-a-boo!"
 

Hand-tied napkins and a homemade table runner reflected the wedding's down-home style.
