Heather and John were married on September 3rd, with a ceremony and reception at John’s parents home in Middlebury, VT.

These two had known each other for several years before they started dating. They went skiing in the same group, but one day, they went up just the two of them and realized that they might just be more than friends. After that, John asked her out on an official date to a comedy club, and the rest is history!

On the day of the wedding, I met up with the girls at the Swift House. Heather had decorated the room, and it was so much fun to capture all of the adorable details—she really thought of everything! After that, I headed over to John’s parents’ place for the wedding. The property was absolutely gorgeous—the perfect backdrop to the wedding. I loved the chance to get to joke around with the guys before the ceremony as they were getting ready—they had amazing energy and humor.

I love how Heather had her initials and wedding date embroidered on a patch and then sewn into the dress—such a special touch!

Heather arrived in her uncle’s vintage car and scurried inside to await the beginning of the ceremony, after making sure that the coast was clear and John was in a different part of the house, of course!

The day was sunny and clear, and the outdoor ceremony went off without a hitch.

Heather and John’s son, Theron, served as the ring bearer, squired by his cousin, Elle, and they made an adorable match as they (very!) slowly made their way down the aisle. Elle was so patient with Theron, who is a relatively recent walker, and despite being the center of attention, he focused on Dad at the bottom of the aisle and just kept trucking.

The party kicked off with Heather and John’s introduction, and they donned some awesome glasses just for the occasion. They really had thought of all the little details, not only with things like the glasses but also with how every decoration and detail tied in. The colors meshed beautifully with the girls’ dresses and everything else!

The toasts during the reception were more like roasts and had us all in stitches. The best man, Cam, described his adventures with John over the years, and it was especially funny to watch John’s parents’ expressions as more stories of trouble came out—I guess they figured it all turned out okay in the end!

This was a great moment—John’s nephew, Jack, decided he wanted to be part of his uncle and grandmother dancing, so he wandered onto the floor with his head covered by a blanket. They both took it in stride and John gave him a loving pat!

After that, the dancing began in earnest, and people hardly left the dance floor all night—except of course to sample the delicious cakes and eat Ben & Jerry’s, which was provided in individual cups, yum!
