Nicole + Kirsten

If you’re an adventuresome couple and you want a special location for your elopement,
the Treehouse Village Inn in South Newfane is just the place.
Nicole and Kirsten live in New York State’s six-million acre Adirondack Park,
love the outdoors, hiking and treehouses.
The Boss provides a musical backdrop during prep in the treehouse.
Nicole and Kirsten descend the stairs from the treehouse to their ceremony by the pond.
Kirsten and Nicole are heading off to hike in the Peruvian Andes for their honeymoon,
so it seemed right to do some portraits in their favorite shoes.
Practical elegance.
Time to celebrate with their family!
The tub is usually filled with ice and chilled Vermont micro-brews,
but it’s also a great place to relax after a wedding ceremony.
Congratulations Kirsten and Nicole! It was such a joy to be with you on your special day
and I know your life adventure is just beginning!

Sara + Bart

It was a perfect late-summer Vermont day for Sara and Bart’s joy-filled wedding at The Old Lantern Inn in Charlotte.
One of the great things about the inn is that it’s just a few miles from Lake Champlain,
a perfect backdrop for the first look and wedding party formals.
Bart and Pete all ready to see Sara in her dress for the first time.
Pete didn’t really tie his own bow tie. It’s a clip on.

Then the serious dancing begins!

Congratulations Sara and Bart! It was a gift to be with you both on your wonderful wedding day—
the first of many joyful days together as husband and wife!
