Park-McCullough Vintage Garden Gala | Vermont Event Photographer

When I don't shoot weddings, I keep busy with Galas :) 

This years Vintage Garden Gala at the Park-McCullough House in North Bennington was one fancy affair! There was amazing music, delicious local organic food, an inviting bar hosted by Thymes Tables Catering with a wonderful signature drink and let's not forget, wonderful people.

The gala is a yearly event that helps this wonderful place raise funds. These funds support The Friends of Park-Mccullough House in their mission to preserve the historical nature of the gardens, grounds, mansion, play house and carriage barn.

I absolutely loved being part of it all! The little walk between twinkle lights that opens the way into the secret garden is my favorite. The light peeks in right over the live fence making everything glow.

This beautiful, one of a kind, victorian house is truly "The Jewel of North Bennington". Hopefully seeing these pictures will inspire you to join us next year for some good fun and a great cause :)

Let's put on something fancy and celebrate this wonderful place together!

 

{{Also, for those of you recently engaged, the Park-McCullough House is also one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Vermont in my opinion :) }}

I am so excited about this wedding!!

I am so excited about this wedding!!

Most of the time, the first thing I do when I get home from a wedding is download all the files and review some of the pictures. I can't possibly look at them all but I do go back and quickly browse for some good ones. My favorite thing to do is put together a quick sneak peek for the couple. The thought of them waking up to their day in review makes me so happy :)) 

 

PS. A sneak peek is not necessarily the best of the best- it's what a sleep deprived, dead tired photographer kept awake by only the thought of your happy faces picked...

 

( Here is what I sent to Andrea and Philip after their wedding. I can not wait to share the rest of their pictures!!)

Andrea and Matt's Romantic Vermont Wedding at The Mountain Top Resort | Vermont Wedding Photographer

Andrea and Matt. What can I say. Some people are just pure nuggets of gold walking around with their hearts bursting with love and goodness. Fun, kind, beautiful souls. So happy they managed to find each other in this lifetime.

Their wedding was pure joy to capture. Intimate. Short. Sweet. Love filled.

They chose to have two separate getting ready houses. Meadow's Edge for the groom and Mountain Aire for the bride. Both wonderful choices. Mountain Aire is my top pick at the resort. It is nestled in the woods on a dead end road. It's peaceful, spacious and bright. The kitchen is an absolute dream and the view is wonderful. It also has a tree house attached which makes it even cooler.

After the ceremony on The Knoll with the Green Mountains as their backdrop, they had a cozy and intimate reception diner at the Mountain Aire right in the living room by the stone fireplace. The in house chef prepared the meal right in that perfect kitchen I mentioned earlier and that also added even more to the already wonderful experience.

Intimate Summer Wedding at The Mountain Top Resort | Vermont Wedding Photographer

I am so excited to share this intimate Vermont wedding with you!

 

I met Jamie and Jarred early last year and soon reconnected with an engagement shoot. I showed them around my side of Vermont but really just wanted to click with them. Well, it worked!  They had a small intimate wedding so it was important both for them and for me that we mesh well together. Hands down, two of the most amazing people I've ever met! 

They planned a beautiful relaxed day surrounded by only close family and friends and it was nothing short of amazing. The weather was perfection and there was a sense of calm surrounding us all which I am sure will transpire through the images below. 

The ceremony was on The Knoll with the Green Mountains as backdrop followed by a small reception right at The Jewel at Meadows Edge where the couple was staying. 

June at the Mountain Top Inn is bursting in color: green mountains, fields of gold and blue skies as far as the eye can see. Pure bliss! You have to see it to believe it...

Vermont Winter Wedding At The Mountain Top Inn and Resort | Vermont Wedding Photographer

I have been looking forward to this wedding ever since I first met Rachel and Adrian half a year ago. They made it very clear that the number one thing they wanted on their wedding day was snow. I spent the two weeks before the wedding, checking the weather constantly and keeping my fingers crossed for a beautiful winter day.

 

The Mountain Top Inn was the perfect backdrop for a winter Vermont wedding and I am so happy and grateful that I got to be part of this special day.

The couple got ready at the Campion cottage. This smaller cottage is perfectly located within walking distance to the main building and just the perfect size for the couple and their wedding party of 8.

Rachel and Adrian both have a wonderful sense of style so it was no surprise for me to find that everything was perfectly coordinated.

Rachel wore a beautiful champagne Watters wedding dress with vinttage lace detail on top and sweetheart neckline . She chose to have her hair and make-up done by her bridesmaids which made for a great bonding experience. I think she looked stunning and I looooved her hair. It was unique and matched her personality perfectly. 

Because it was so incredibly cold, they had to move the ceremony inside. The Mountain Top Inn has a lovely mezzanine in the main barn with a unbelievable view of the snowy hills.

 

 

A big THANK YOU! to Rachel and Adrian for being absolutely amazing and a pleasure to work with!

...and a big shout out to all the vendors that came together to make their vision come to life!
