Alli found some cool bleached flannel shirts on Etsy for the bridesmaids and the officiant. Still life: Vermont Cutting Board with Bloody Mary Ingredients. Alli’s and Patrick’s moms oversee the buttoning of Alli’s amazing 1960s-inspired wedding dress. The beautiful flowers were a theme of the day. Alli’s dad sees his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time. Meanwhile, the boys have busted out the Cuban cigars. Patrick looking good in his white shirt and tie. A bagpiper’s music welcomed the guests as they got off the gondola at the summit. Alli’s amazing bouquet. The moment you realize you’re marrying the love of your life and this is all real. Yes, the sky was really this blue. Exchanging rings in the warm afternoon light. Mr. and Mrs. Murray’s first kiss on the top of the world. Alli ducks under the deck for a post-ceremony celebration with the wedding party. Some time alone in the gondola for the ride down the mountain. A perfect moment for some four-wheeling. How can you not post this image? The boyz. And the cocktail hour begins. Instead of favors, Alli and Patrick made a generous contribution to The Nature Conservancy to help preserve the outdoor space they love. The beautiful first dance. Dancing with dad. And dancing with mom. Alli’s dad talks about all the things he wasn’t supposed to talk about, much to everyone’s delight. Except perhaps Patrick’s. Alli’s sister and Patrick’s best man add their stories and congratulations. Patrick’s dad and his RPI fraternity brothers serenade Alli as they welcome her to the family. This was a dancing crowd, and nearly everyone was on the dance floor most of the evening. A special shout-out to Peter Miles and The Miles Band, who rocked the house all night. Patrick loves Frankenstein, so one of their dear friends painted this Bride of Frankenstein as a wedding present. Patrick owns a successful high-end auto repair facility, and this is Alli and Patrick’s ride. Nothing wrong here. Congratulations you two! Your day was just as you’d hoped—a fun celebration with your wonderful family and friends. Thank you for inviting Leslie and me be a part of it!
