Modern Elegance in Exeter

We can’t wait to share the lovely intimate wedding of Allison and Alex with you! The big day took place in July at Exter Inn, Exeter. With the ceremony outside in the garden, followed by the reception inside. The simple colour scheme of white and red is subtly placed throughout.

From the photographer, Emily of Emily Teresa Photography“Alex and Allison are high school sweethearts and a few days before their 11th anniversary they said “I do” in front of 45 close friends and family members. Earlier in the week, the weather called for torrential rain but on their wedding day, there wasn’t a drop of rain. Their wedding took place at The Exeter Inn in Exeter, NH with a high-noon ceremony.

The day started in the bridal suite where Allison, her sister in law, and her best friend were getting ready with the two flower girls. Allison had all her details ready to go: the Claddagh ring Alex gave her for valentine’s day back in 2008, a sapphire necklace he gave her in 2007, and comfy jeweled sandals. I loved photographing these small details because of the history this two share!

Allison then had me deliver the groom a gift. I photographed him opening a beautiful black citizen watch as he exclaimed, “this is what I wanted!”. His groomsmen and he shared a cocktail before they entered into the green space for the ceremony.

The intimate ceremony space was surrounded by greenery as her Dad walked her down the aisle, met by her Step-Dad to give her away, and brother to marry her away. At the conclusion of the ceremony, guests entered inside to observe the dances. After Allison and Alex’s first dance, Allison joined both her Dad and Step-Dad for their own individual dances. Afterwards, guests sat at a long family style table to enjoy lunch.

Bold red and black colors during this humid cloudy day made for a story full of color and love. The love between these two, after all this time, is tangible and magnetic. The day concluded full of fun activities outside where there were lawn games, drinks, and gift bags of chocolate and personalized water bottles.”
