Wedding guests at a New Hampshire wedding on Squam Lake

Located on Squam Lake, NH

Squam Lake was picked to be the perfect lake for the 1981 movie “On Golden Pond”. The movie won three Oscars and starred Katherine Hepburn, Henry Fonda and his daughter Jane Fonda. When you visit the lake, you realize why it was chosen.

"I loved my wedding there, as did all my friends. Squam Lake is magical, and the barn was perfect; everyone gets married in a hotel or a tent, and I wanted something different and memorable."
