On Saturday June 21, 2014 at 3:00pm Miss Danielle Rae Paquette of Meredith NH and Mr. Ryan Lance Horne of Ashland NH were united in matrimony in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in Center Harbor at the residence of the bride’s father Mr. Anatole J. Paquette Jr. and his wife Madelyn under a wedding arch decorated by the bride’s mother Mrs. Donna Wall and her husband Thomas. The theme of the day was the white dove of peace with the entire area being transformed into a magnificent floral garden. The bride was escorted down the aisle by her father to the lovely enchanted “Alleluia to Pachelbel’s Canon in D” recorded by Richard Gass & On Wings of Song. Danielle’s matron of honor was her sister Mrs. Belonie Marie Grant. Ryan was attended by his best man Mr. William Bryer with groomsman Mr. Marc Weinberg and usher Mr. Kyler Stevenson, the groom’s brother who escorted the groom’s mother Ms. Milissa G. Moris. Also in attendance was the groom’s father Mr. George J. Horne accompanied by his friend Theresa Profenno both of whom were in charge of Danielle and Ryan’s best friend, Rowan their Dog. The bride’s 95 year old grandfather Mr. Oscar E. Foote Sr. was also present. The officiant for the marriage ceremony was Pastor Dave Dalzell of The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Laconia NH. Scripture selections were St. Paul’s Letter to the Corinthians read by Donna Wall, Psalm Twenty Three read by Tom Wall, and The Song of Solomon read by George Horne.
Immediately following the ceremony the more than one hundred guests, some of whom came from as far away as Florida, were invited to a reception under a large tent on the property where they were served dinner catered by Hart’s Turkey Farm. Toasts and warm wishes were offered by both the bride’s father and sister and the groom’s best man. Floral table decorations were provided by Mrs. Madelyn Paquette’s sister-in-law Mrs. Carol Symonds. Music for dancing was performed by the Big Time Band from Boston with the bride and groom dancing their first dance to “Someone Like You” by Van Morrison, followed by the bride-father and the groom-mother dances and then many more hours of general dancing.
Ryan, a graduate of Plymouth State College, owns Horne Electric in Meredith NH and Danielle, a graduate of both Flagler College in St. Augustine FL and Lakes Region Community College in Laconia NH, works as a registered nurse for Lakes Region Visiting Nurse Association in Meredith, NH.
After honeymooning in the rural farmland of New Zealand where they rafted the famous glowworm caves, toured the land of the Hobbits and visited with Danielle’s cousin Jessica Steel and her family of New Zealanders, Ryan and Danielle are now back in Ashland where they are currently residing.
