Kate & Jeff planned their wedding to be quintessentially Vermont – most of their guests traveled up from around New York City and they really wanted people to enjoy Vermont and the beautiful surroundings. Riverside Farm was the perfect location – Kate & Jeff’s friends stayed on site in the beautiful outbuildings and their families stayed a mile down the road at Amee Farm. The weather was a bit chillier than they might have envisioned but they just rolled with it and everyone had a blast. Settle in for a lot of photos 🙂

We were greeted at Riverside by this quirky sign showing the way 🙂

The “bride’s cottage” had beautiful light and lots of elegant Vermont touches that made it a dream to photograph in.

Jeff’s Mom and all the parents were radiant all day – just so happy 🙂 It made my heart warm!

We headed over to the Groom’s cottage where the boys were being boys….watching a movie and hanging out 🙂

Jeff, relaxed as always!

Jamie Dragon did a great job with Kate’s hair and makeup

I loved the texture of the wood!

LOVE this one of Kate 🙂

Kate’s Mom takes a break from makeup to see her daughter the bride!

Kate & Jeff left oodles of time for photographs….a dream on a property filled with great spots for portraits.

A beautiful covered bridge 🙂

Love this one.

Kate & Jeff wanted a sign by this post pointing to Manhattan!

A relative kindly gave up his jacket to warm up Kate who insisted she was not cold!

Due to the cold temperatures the ceremony was moved inside – again tons of charm and beautiful details….notice the candles on the beams!

Sweet moments during the ceremony.

Jeff decisively breaks the glass….and they’re married!

Some guests walked up to the cocktail tent but others opted for a ride on the yellow bus 🙂

Love these two.

The reception was simply decorated – the barn is so beautiful it doesn’t need much adornment!

Kate & Jeff enter the party

The horah is danced to express joy. There was A LOT of joy in this room as the Tarbox ramblers played on and on and people kept dancing- moving between the main floor and the porch outside. The energy was just electric and it was fun to get swept up in it!

Let the horah begin!

Jeff’s Mom wasn’t convinced she could grab onto the napkin 🙂

Dancing continues on the porch!

Love this one 🙂

Funny and touching toasts
