Peter & Emily’s Mountain Top Inn Wedding

Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0032

Peter & Emily were married on October 5, 2014 with a ceremony at the Pittsford Congregational Church and a reception at The Mountain Top Inn. This beautiful Mountain Top Inn Wedding was amazing with the fall colors of the Green Mountains as a backdrop.

Peter & Emily both attended the University of Vermont, but didn’t actually meet until a few years after they graduated at an alumni event in Boston. They bonded over their birthdays, which are one day apart, and their mutual ownership of old school flip phones!

On the wedding day I spent time in the morning with both the girls and Peter and his family as they were getting ready. I was able to capture photos with the guys and then zipped back to photograph Emily getting her dress on. Then we did photos with the girls before heading off to the church! After the ceremony we did the rest of the formal and family photos and then Peter, Emily, and I did some exploring to a covered bridge and beautiful woods. They were able to attend almost their entire cocktail party where people were enjoying lawn games (including a custom cornhole set). As the sun began to set guests were invited into the barn and the reception began!

Kerry Armstrong did Emily’s hair. I first worked with her earlier this year at James & Katie’s wedding and was so impressed by both her work and her professionalism – she is so easy to be around and keeps everything running on time while doing beautiful work! Emily’s makeup was done by Mirror Mirror.

Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0010It was impeccable Vermont autumn weather. Emily had been so concerned about it raining or being freezing on the wedding day but it was neither – the foliage was spectacular, the skies were blue and it was unseasonably warm for early October – perfect!  Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0012 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0013 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0014 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0015 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0016 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0017 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0018 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0019 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0020 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0021 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0022 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0023 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0024 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0025 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0026 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0027 Mountain-Top-Inn-Wedding-Vermont-Orchard-Cove-Photography_0028I love working with A Schoolhouse Garden for the flowers.

Peter’s Dad let them borrow his fabulous vintage truck. We used it for couple’s photos of Peter & Emily but then rounded up the bridal party at the end of cocktail hour and used the beautiful trees as a background for a full group shot.

It was so fun seeing James & Natalie again – they have grown up a lot in two years! We met up at Shelburne Farms and enjoyed being on a beach and throwing rocks and then exploring the art installation near the inn – what a beautiful backdrop! Enjoy the photos!

Fall Engagement Vermont

I had such a fun time meeting up with Rebecca & Tim last week at Shelburne Farms. They brought along their fur babies Molly & Miles who ADORED leaping and running through the open fields – it made us all laugh! Rebecca & Tim are getting married this winter at Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe….I’ll keep fingers crossed for freshly fallen (or falling!) snow – Tim is a ski coach so perhaps he has a good connection to the snow gods :) Enjoy the photos!
