Amanda’s bouquet was full of vibrant colors. The bridesmaids attend to the final details. Mom shares some final words of loving support. Or maybe they were talking about hiding bra straps. I don’t remember just now. A bridal party group hug before heading to the ceremony. The vows are read on a perfect Vermont fall afternoon, with a refreshing breeze over Lake Champlain to the west. David slips the ring on Amanda’s hand. The boyz. Amanda’s wonderful bridal party. When I use the term “formal portraits,” it’s a relative term. No time like the present to work on your yoga moves, including the timeless Wheelbarrow. A quiet moment overlooking Vermont’s Green Mountains. Amanda’s brother Tim looking ministerial after officiating. He had another five hours of being a minister in the State of Vermont. The fall gardens were in full bloom. The first dance rocked it to a beautiful rendition of Moonlight in Vermont. Amanda’s 92-year-old grandmother burned up the dance floor. Most expressive guest goes to. . . . Not every reception is filled with dancing, but Amanda and David’s definitely was, with the bride and groom on the dance floor most of the evening. I think they danced with nearly all the guests. Groomsman Matt works on his Wedding Libs (a take-off on Mad Libs). The Wedding Libs were a hoot, and mostly not rated for this PG blog. And the best photo bomb goes to. . . . If I only had three minutes to photograph the dancing, I would wait for Elvis Presley’s “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.” It never fails to create beautiful moments. Tourtourelle has wonderful outdoor spaces, and it was a perfect evening at 74 degrees with a gentle breeze. Not to mention a lighted corn hole court. It doesn’t get much better than this. As the sun sets, dramatic clouds move in from the west. I love this image both in color and black and white. Amanda and David, congratulations on being married, and for getting married on such a perfect day, surrounded by so many friends and family who love you. It was pure magic!
