Emily & Jay's Wedding at Portsmouth's North Church & Private Residence

It rained the day before Emily and Jay were set to say I do. I poured cat and dogs and it was hard to imagine that the rain would ever really stop. But just like that it did. Blue skies and sun appeared, creating the most perfect fall day for Emily and Jay. Emily arrived to the home where she prepared, her beautiful brunette locks fastened with three red roses. She sat in front of a mirror and did her on own make up, sitting cross legged on the floor. She was relaxed, happy and ready to be a Mrs. As soon as she slipped into her dress the room let out an audible gasp followed by "You are stunning, Emily."

From the first look, to their ceremony to their beautiful reception at a family friend's home in the farm land of New Hampshire, everything about their day was perfect. Even as the sun went down and people began to shiver, blankets were provided and no one left the dance floor. Hot apple cider was served to warm hands and bellies and people celebrated Emily and Jay far into the night.

Emily and Jay, thank you so much for having me, for your love and support but mostly for the never ending supply of hugs. Your day was truly something special.

We'll start with Emily's beautiful Monique Luo dress.

Time to get dressed!

I loved her red nails!

Emily you are simply stunning.

Jay working it, as he waited patiently for their first look at Prescott Park in Portsmouth.

I really love when a couple decides to have a first look.

Checking out his bride.

What a great looking couple.

Following the portraits, it was off to North Church in downtown Portsmouth for their beautiful ceremony.

It's official! These beautiful centerpieces, featuring images from their engagement session, where done by the talented Sarah of Bumblebee and Sophie.

A few more portraits before the sun when down, then it was time to party!

Their amazing entrance!

The toasts by the maid of honor and best man were more like good roasts :)

The dance floor is now open!
