Ali + Jon

Ali and Jon had a perfect Vermont fall day for their wedding at the Colonel Williams Inn in Marlboro.
The only thing in the crystal clear blue sky was the moon.

Ali and her mom.
Ali was beautiful, relaxed and fun all day long.
The amazing Justin Altman was photographing the groomsmen. Here Jon puts on his boutonniere
with the world’s longest needle.
Sweet Gidget, Dog of Honor, waits until the last minute to get dressed.
Jon’s team.
Now would be a good time to mention that the requisites for being invited to this wedding included:
being wildly fun, loving life, and loving Ali and Jon.
The guests gather for the ceremony.
The groomsmen getting organized by the barn.
Love and laughter amid the beautiful fall foliage.
Chris just wants to be sure that Ali is ready to say her vows.
Jon’s parents
Jon neglects to “repeat after me,” causing some initial concern among those present.
And, the ring fits.

The gorgeous barn, delightfully warm on this cool fall evening.
Inn keeper Victoria’s vase collection.
Victoria also collects china, so every guest had a different place setting.
Husband and wife are introduced.

The birch bark wedding cake, an homage to Ali and Jon’s love of hiking and the outdoors.
Yes, that is a limbing axe.
A polite dab of frosting on each forehead, and a post-cake cutting kiss.
And the dancing begins.
Some surprise guests.
Some late-afternoon portraits in the soft light.
One of my favorite images of the day. Pure joy and happiness.
Ali and Jon—it was a pleasure to be with you, your wonderful friends and families on such an amazing day of fun and celebration. Congratulations!

A whole group photo on the porch.
Jess’s beautiful bouquet.
The first dance, beautifully choreographed.
We coordinated before the dance so I’d be in the right position to catch this perfect dip.
Matt, the evening’s DJ, was flawless, and the playlist kept nearly
everyone on the dance floor all evening!
Kyle’s Nana leads a line dance.
Kyle’s sister, like her brother, loves to dance.
Mom and daughter.
Even the tango made an appearance.
A quiet moment together on the porch.
Congratulations Jess and Kyle! It was a special day for a very special couple.
