Intimate Sunset Wedding in North Bennington | Vermont Wedding Photographer

This next weeding is close to my heart… Truth be told, I might be a little bit subjective about it as these two beautiful people are good friends of ours. They got married in front of family in friends about a month after this happened. Signing the marriage license and exchanging rings before, happened organically. They simply wanted to have an intimate ceremony in one of their favorite places and take some of the wedding pressure off. It made for such a sweet event. The day was as close to perfect as it could be. The most amazing sunset light bathed them in a warm honey glow.

If you ever feel like a big formal wedding is too stressful, go do you.

Summer Vermont Wedding at Mountain Meadows Lodge | Vermont Wedding Photographer

For me, every wedding is memorable in its own way. In 2018, Gabby and Adam’s wedding was by far the most emotional for me. On so many different levels. I cried sad tears. I laughed happy tears. I danced and celebrated when I found out they have an ice cream bar instead of cake… So. Many. Emotions. I hope I managed to catch all of the little snippets in time for them. It was a truly special day for so many reasons. Not only for them as a couple but I believe for everyone present. 

Gabby’s mom almost didn’t make it to the wedding due to some health issues. Being a mom myself and also a daughter to a mom I absolutely adore, my heart broke into a thousand pieces many times over that day. And then it was put together again and again throughout the day witnessing so much joy and love and kindness. I had a hard time even looking at Gabby’s eyes because they literally broke me. This girl has the most amazing, warm, beautiful blue eyes accompanied by the most infectious smile I have ever photographed… To see them fill up with tears was hard.

I say this a lot and many might not fully understand what I mean. Most other wedding photographers will. I feel my heart grow with every single couple I photograph. I am forever thankful to you all for sharing these precious moments with me…


Their first dance was to Peter Gabriel’s Book of Love

(This song is special to Mike and I and it was the first time I have ever heard it play at a wedding… the moment it started we both locked eyes. It was awesome!)

Best Photographer Ever! Idena captured all of our pure joyous and loving moments in the greatest way possible. We told her we did not want to spend a lot of time taking formal pictures, and she was able to capture every moment we hoped for without having us pull away from the party too long. We had a semi traditional Jewish wedding with many different parts across many different locations and she moved seamlessly and went with the flow not missing a beat. I also had the pleasure of having her in my suite while I got ready with my friends and she was so sweet and funny and brought nothing but good vibes right before the ceremony....”

Summer Wedding at Stoweflake Mountain Resort| Vermont Wedding Photographer

It dawned on me that the day of the wedding is the day I finally get to really know the couple. 

Beth and Dan- I met them for the engagement session, I talked to them on the phone a couple of times and e-mailed back and forth a bunch. But I only knew them, really knew them... when they were surrounded in a big circle of love by all their friends and family at the end of the night. Beth with happy tears in her eyes dancing with this funny, warm hearted man she gets to now call her husband. I get goose bumps just remembering that moment.

I'm looking forward to sharing more of their day soon...

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.

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!
