Courtney & Colby: Married! Summer Wedding Exeter Inn NH

After an amazingly perfect Exeter fall engagement session I was already amped up for Courtney & Colby’s summer wedding at the Exeter Inn.

Check out these ridiculously romantically soft and gorgeous flowers designed by one of my favorites – Jessica at Cymbidium Florals. Her work is always stunning and Courtney & Colby’s florals were no exception.  The flowers totally set the tone for all of the marvelous details throughout the day!

‘Before your big day, gather a wooden box, a bottle of wine (or the alcohol of your choice), and two glasses. Write love notes to each other, explaining your feelings as you prepare to start your new life together as husband and wife. Seal your letter without letting your soon-to-be read what you’ve written.

During the ceremony, place the love notes inside the wooden box with the wine and glasses. Take turns hammering the box shut, one nail at a time, until the box is sealed. 

Agree to keep the box sealed until a special anniversary, like your 10th or 20th, unless you hit a rough patch. Then, break open the box, pour the wine, read the letters, and remember what it’s all about!’

I’m not sure I could keep a good bottle of wine under lock and key that long, but I’m all about the love letters part!
