Chris & Michelle were married on a bluebell sky spectacular Vermont day. I think they thought by having an early September wedding it might be a bit cooler but someone had other plans and it was unseasonably hot….not quite fall yet! I started the day with Michelle and her ladies at their house where things were relaxed and everyone was having a fun time reminiscing. From there we drove up to the Ponds for Chris & Michelle’s first look. We did all the photos beforehand which meant that Chris & Michelle were able to fully enjoy their guests and the party. A close family friend of Michelle’s created the flowers and the room looked stunning – very understated and elegant. Paul Pecor kept people on the dance floor and it was just a really fun day. Enjoy the photos!
An eyelash for good luck and a lovely reaction (that quickly turned teary!) as Mom saw Michelle’s finished makeup
Meanwhile my second shooter Ben was at The Essex with Chris & his guys as they got ready
I loved this moment when Michelle’s Dad saw her for the first time – it was so sweet and I think we all teared up!
A close family friend officiated and was wonderful
There were a few tears during the personal and emotional vows
The Ponds provides a perfect spot to do a full wedding photo – I wish we had thought to do it when we were married!
Mr. & Mrs!!
I never know quite whether there will be a dip and where/when it will happen but this time I was in the right spot at the right time!
My favorite image
A little cake on the nose is good luck I think!
Caught Ben’s flash on this one and I love the look! They were LAUNCHING Chris up into the air!
Hope you had a fabulous trip to Maine!
