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.

Spencer promises not to roast the groom, a promise he managed to keep.
Robyn, on the other hand, made no promises.

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!

Katie + Prescott

Katie and Prescott’s wedding day together started at the beautiful Charlotte, Vermont covered bridge.

My second shooter was the always amazing Karen Pike, who got this wonderful image of Prescott as he waits to see Katie in her dress for the first time.

Prescott clearly appoves.

We could actually see the storm coming across Lake Champlain, so the limo was parked right behind me as we did some quick wedding party portraits.

The details at the Old Lantern Inn were gorgeous.

Prescott quickly corrected himself after promising “I, Prescott, take you, Katie, to be my husband. . . .”

Pronounced husband and wife!

And the celebration begins.

Katie’s mom had this beautiful smile all day long.

The sun came out several minutes after the reception started.

Prescott and Katie are introduced before their first dance.

These guys knew how to dance.

I usually try to get a photo of the guests at each table. This is one of my less successful attempts.

And the dancing begins!

Prescott and Katie thank everyone for making the day so special.
