Hinesburg VT Family Photography

I met up with this sweet family at their home on an early autumn day – the light in the house was beautiful and the sun peeked through during our time together. Their sweet daughter is a little over one and is so curious about the world. Enjoy the images!

Riverside Farm Wedding

It had been many moons since I’d photographed a wedding at Riverside Farm and it’s just as beautiful as I remembered it. Terry and Steph had just about the perfect wedding day with warm temperatures and blue skies….it doesn’t get better than that! They are such a fun and funny couple and of course their families and friends were also lovely. Lindsay Selin came along as a second photographer and a few of these favorites are her images. Enjoy!

Before seeing Step we headed to the groom’s cabin where Terry & the guys were getting dapper!

Beautiful bridal details

A toast before donning the dress!

Flawless!

Scenes from a perfect Vermont day – I so love these signs that Riverside puts up for the wedding and that the middle ones are personalized for each couple….they must have quite a collection now!


The sweetest little ring bearer Jasper


The Ketubah as always was a work of art – this time created by a friend of theirs…..talented!


Although the Rabbi joked that once the Ketubah was signed they were technically married and thus didn’t need to do the ceremony they decided to go ahead with it 😉


Such a gorgeous tree framing the ceremony site


Mr. & Mrs!


I need to find out where these topiaries came from – they were FABULOUS.


Coming in hot to the cocktail hour!


I have many favorite moments of a wedding day but the introduction of the couple into the reception is such a high – time to party!


I loved the idea of having guests sign a globe

A few more portraits in the softer evening light


Steph’s sister in law gave the most touching, emotional, beautiful speech about the importance of Terry & Steph and how much they supported her and Terry’s Brother during Jasper’s birth and baby days – I think everyone welled up!

Such pride and love in Dad’s eyes!


Hora time!


Photo booth shenanigans

Dancing with awesome event planner Kaitlyn who ran a tight ship but kept everyone smiling and the day running smoothly!

BHC Summer Wedding :: Kelly & Pete

I had such a blast being with Kelly & Pete for their rehearsal dinner (I’ll blog that another day!) and wedding at Basin Harbor Club. They and their families were lovely and welcoming and Kelly and her Charlotte (NC!) friends brought their Southern hospitality to Vermont. The beautiful flowers were from In Full Bloom in Shelburne and the groovy music was the Peter Miles Band. Shear Cuts was responsible for hair and makeup – they are wonderful! Enjoy a selection of my favorite images – congratulations Pete & Kelly!!

Erin & Andrew | Basin Harbor Club

 

Erin and Andrew were married on June 17th, with a ceremony at St. Mary’s Church in Middlebury and a reception at the Basin Harbor Club.

I love the story of how they met: Erin was visiting her friend Emily in NYC, and Andrew just so happened to live in the same building. Since Emily wasn’t answering the bell, Andrew let her in and joked that he hoped she wasn’t a serial killer. They followed each other up the 5-floor walkup, and Erin took note of which apartment was his, one floor below.

Later, she wrote him a note and slipped it under his door with her number and the message: “It couldn’t be worse than meeting on Tinder.”

On the day of the wedding, I met up with the girls at the newly-renovated sunset cottage at Basin Harbor and got some shots of Erin donning her dress as well as a few last-minute candids.

Once Erin was ready, we headed to St. Mary’s in Middlebury, where all the flower children were gathering (with various amounts of enthusiasm!) outside of the church. Andrew and his brothers had smartly decided to stay inside to try and beat the heat. St.Mary's Church Basin Harbor Club Vermont Wedding Photographer Orchard Cove Photography

The ceremony location itself was incredibly special to Erin, since she had been confirmed at that church. It was the perfect setting, filled with people who clearly know and love the two of them. Almost all of the kiddos made it down the aisle, and there were a few lighter moments during the Mass as friends and family joked around

The priest even had to gently prompt Andrew to repeat the vows—not just listen to them.

As they exited the church, a bagpiper greeted the two of them.

 They formed a receiving line so they could see all their guests—and it also provided the opportunity for some beautifully-lit candids.

One of the shots we were sure to capture was of all the kids at the wedding. There were 8 flower children, all under the age of 5, so the chance of crashing or melting down was high. We grabbed an “insurance” picture of all of them beforehand before it could get too late—just in case anyone needed to disappear for a nap.

We had plenty of time for portraits back at Basin Harbor outside of the homestead between the ceremony and the reception—and with the gardens in full bloom with peonies galore, we had the perfect backdrop as well! St.Mary's Church Basin Harbor Club Vermont Wedding Photographer Orchard Cove Photography

Happy Meals kept the kids from crashing, and we were able to get pictures with all the kids at Basin Harbor as well. Andrew and Erin were so patient and loving dealing with them!

The summery tent was just beautiful and decorated with thought and care. The cocktail hour itself was held at the newly renovated Burgee bar and under the tent right on the water—a spectacular Vermont evening.

One of my favorite moments of any wedding is the introduction of the couple into the tent and the first dance, since by that part of the night, any nerves are out of the system, and everyone is ready to have a good time. Andrew and Erin were clearly soaking it all in—and loving every second of it!

After the grand entrance, and after some funny and touching toasts, it was time to get the party started. Guests were able to play at the shuffleboard court in addition to flooding the dance floor, though some of my favorite, funniest images came from that floor.

As the sun went down, we got to take advantage of a new feature: an awesome expanded dock area that was perfect for sunset portraits. Guests on a nearby boat cheered on the newlyweds as we took pictures!

 Then at the very end of the night, Northstar wrapped up the evening with fireworks and sent everyone on their way to the Red Mill for the afterparty.
