Funny story only mildly related to Liz and Kyle’s beautiful Jay Peak wedding and totally related to my clumsiness: The view from the first photo on this post can be seen from the bottom of the road leading up to Jay Peak. I’d seen it before when I photographed Liz and Kyle’s engagement session but the trees were not quite as pretty then as they were on their wedding day so on their wedding day, before arriving to the resort, we stopped to grab a shot of this view.
But that’s not the funny part.
As I pulled off to the side of the road to park the car, I failed to calculate the rate at which the curb declined into a field of tall grass. Long-story-short, thirty minutes later a tow-truck had to winch the car out of the ditch I drove into. I’m still embarrassed about it all and I still get teased for it but I learned my lesson.
Thankfully, I try to arrive at every venue at least an hour before we start shooting so we had plenty of time to scout and meet up with Liz and Kyle.
I’d say that the top of Jay Peak is the closest I’ve felt to being on top of the world. The views, at times, are straight out of a J.R.R. Tolkien novel and the mountains seem to go on forever.
Can’t wait to come back to Jay Peak later this year!
