Ross & Annie’s Rehearsal Dinner – August 28th
Venue: Private Home, Middlebury, Vermont
Caterer: Almost Home Market
Bar: Wunder Bar – Ken Bellows
This was a wedding weekend I had been looking forward to all summer….it just got better as Eileen & I rolled into town. It was one of those quintessential perfect Vermont late summer evenings – a bit cool but sunny with beautiful light. Eileen and I just smiled 🙂
The rehearsal took place at the Basin Harbor Club where Annie & Ross grew up visiting. Their families and friends surrounded them and everyone was just beaming the whole weekend as we celebrated this amazing couple.
Ross & Annie were just so expressive and it was so much fun watching them soak in the whole weekend!
Ross’ parents generously hosted the rehearsal dinner at their home outside of Middlebury – I love when there are flags on the tops of tents 🙂
A schoolbus delivered guests from Basin Harbor
I love watching the parents at weddings – this is a big day for them too! Ross & Annie’s parents were loving the weekend as much as they were and were just so kind to Eileen & I all weekend.
We were all in for a treat with the speeches. Ross & Annie were roasted and toasted by an assortment of friends and family resulting in more great reactions and tears rolling down everyone’s faces!
The parents take it all in 🙂
Annie’s childhood girlfriends toasted her and blew up their save the date photo which was designed by her friend Katherine of Tallow – no butts about it!
Annie’s uncle sang “Annie’s Song” by John Denver which brought down the house…..SO sweet.
Then Annie’s cousins brought in a little laughter with a skit about the various parts of Annie’s life complete with wigs and props 🙂
Annie’s Brother’s toast was perfect.
LOVE LOVE LOVE their expressions 🙂
Stay tuned for the wedding!
