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. Bart and Sara with besties Robyn and Spencer. Bart’s mom and dad, and Sara’s mom. Such a vision of peaceful joy. Bart’s uncle (and John’s dad, whose wedding to Jenny I did last summer), shares wisdom with a healthy dose of humor. Husband and wife. The traditional cousin portrait. “P” stands for Pete, the dog Sara rescued, and who has since returned the favor many times over. Cousins. The introduction. Sara’s dad gives the first toast. That mixture of surprise and horror when dad says what dads say. Spencer promises not to roast the groom, a promise he managed to keep. Robyn, on the other hand, made no promises. The father-daughter dance. Bart dances with his mom. Then the serious dancing begins! Not the father-daughter dance. Some sunset portraits and a few quiet moments together. 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!
