Engagements Weddings

Whitney and Ed’s Mountain Top Inn Wedding

You guys, wedding season is finally underway and I absolutely cannot wait to meet all of the wonderful couples we will have the privilege of working with this year.

Whitney and Ed’s wedding at the Mountain Top Inn in Chittenden, Vermont was our very first wedding of the season and we couldn’t have asked for a more kind and amazing couple to inspire us and get us excited for the months to come. From the spectacular weather they had all day (despite a nerve-racking week of rainy weather forecasts) through their sweet sparkler exit. Every moment of their day brings a smile to our faces.

Here are some of the very talented folks that helped make this beautiful couple’s day happen:

Mary and Paul – York Harbor Maine Wedding

I have such wonderful memories from this wedding. From the beautiful views on the warm Maine coast, to the magical light we had throughout the day, to how amazingly wonderful Mary and Paul and their entire crew were to work with all day.

The setting for Mary and Paul’s wedding was the York Harbor Reading Room: a private club on the coast of Maine. It’s an intimate place with a great ballroom and lots of ocean-view windows. I feel so lucky we get to work with such awesome people who take us to places like this and let us document their wedding celebration.

So without further ado, here are my favorite photos from their wedding day, plus a few sprinkled photos here and there of their cute nautical inspired wedding details:

Haley & Jared’s Portrait Session at The Merck Forest in Rupert, Vermont

Haley wanted to take advantage of a visit to Boston to see Jared to get some portraits done to celebrate their new engagement. I’m not sure how she found the Merck Forest in Rupert, Vermont having planned this from the West Coast but I’m so happy she chose this as the location for their portraits. The fall colors were still incredible and we had amazing light in the evening.

Whatta cute couple!
