Jenny + John

Two generous and gracious lawyers from LA, where it never rains. Two loving families and a passel of friends with beautiful children. A stunning venue at Scott Farm and the lovely Betsy Bates as the wedding coordinator. Add a dash of June rain showers. The result: pure magic. Congratulations Jenny and John. You hold a special place in my heart.

Brittany + Nick

It was a magical Vermont day at Mountain View Inn for Brittany and Nick’s wedding.
Brittany radiates joy as her dad escorts her down the aisle.
Nick sees his bride in her dress for the first time.
Nick’s dad looks to see his son’s reaction.

The groomsmen went to Nashville for a pre-wedding weekend and [nearly] everyone came back with matching cowboy boots.
Brittany’s regular cross training made this image possible.

Chittenden Reservoir and a meadow filled with wildflowers provide the perfect backdrop for Brittany and Nick’s portraits.

Sticking with the Nashville theme (the bridal party also went to Nashville for their weekend gathering) the introduction song is Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy.
The beautiful first dance.

Brittany’s dance with her dad is done to a long-lost video of her preforming a song when she was about 6 years old.

Nick and his mom’s dance.

UVM was well represented!
A well-rehearsed line dance by the wedding party rocked the house.
The early evening light at the inn is always amazing.

Brittany and Nick, thank you for the wonderful opportunity to be with you and your family and friends on your special day!

Cara + Jimmy

Scott Farm and Rudyard Kipling’s Naulahka were the perfect backdrop for Cara and Jimmy’s wedding yesterday. Jimmy’s Scottish heritage determined the wardrobe. Cara in Kipling’s library.
