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!

Emily + Alex

Emily and Alex’s wedding at the Mountain Top Inn featured two things: Vermont’s fall foliage at its best, and total, absolute fun.

Emily’s mom, grandmother, and bridal party all rocking the flannel.

Alex (on the right) and his team.

Pre-nuptial bubbles.

Emily’s brother reads excerpts from some of his grandmother and grandfather’s love letters.

Rock, paper, scissors to determine who says their vows first.

One of the groomsmen, who paints in the style of Grant Wood, is going to do an “American Gothic” portrait based on a portrait we made.

Emily and Alex’s dancing lessons pay off big time.

The cham-bong makes its debut.

S’mores by the fire for dessert.

An exuberant hava nagila.

Emily and Alex’s amazing Boston-based band, The Buzz, played something for everyone.

Alex’s parents had obviously had some dance lessons at some point too.

Emily’s grandmother hits the dance floor.

Emily’s family plays the cake cutting music.

Taking no prisoners during the primal cake cutting.

The search for the garter begins.

Apparently not thrilled to have caught the garter.

Congratulations Emily and Alex! Thank you for the opportunity to be with you both on your perfect day!

 

Jennifer + Ryan

Jenny and Ryan’s wedding day at the always beautiful Mountain Top Inn started inside due to an ill-timed thunderstorm. Fortunately, the inn’s barn loft has a perfect view of the Chittenden Reservoir and the Green Mountains.
Jenny looking radiant as her dad walks her down the aisle.
Ryan seeing Jenny in her dress for the first time.
The ceremony was marked by laughter and joy.
Dr. and Mrs. Mooney’s first kiss as husband and wife.

The skies cleared and we were able to do all the formals up in the meadow overlooking the reservoir.
The entire team—they were all really fun, and really love Jenny and Ryan.

 

Jenny’s bouquet. All the flowers at the wedding were simply amazing.

Jenny and Ryan are introduced at the reception.
The first dance under the lights in the barn.

Between the cake and the tower of cupcakes, dessert was covered.
The toasts left everyone laughing and crying.

Ryan’s dad roasts his son.

And Jenny’s dad roasts his new son-in-law. Jenny came through the toasts relatively unscathed.

Putting up with a pose that was not his idea.
The guestbook was filled with heartfelt wishes.
Just delivering, not sampling.
Marist College alumni rocking it.
Cupcakes with maple cream frosting topped with crumbled bacon. Nothing wrong here.
Jenny and her dad’s dance.
And Ryan and his mom.
Jenny and Ryan loved to dance, as did their guests. The dance floor was full all night, and they asked the DJ (Mike from Top Hat Entertainment) to stay for an extra hour.
A perfect bouquet toss is one that avoids the lights, and Jenny nails it.
And a perfect catch!
I love taking the couple out for some sunset portraits at the inn. The light is always amazing.
Congratulations you two! It was a delight to be with you both all day and to enjoy the laughter and love you share with one another.

It was an amazing day, and I’m so thankful to have been there with you both.
