Charlotte and Matt hosted their summer wedding at the Topnotch Resort in Stowe, VT. We have photographed a Topnotch summer wedding before and it has quickly become one of our favorite rustic wedding venues. We loved that this bride and groom incorporated a little bit of Vermont into all of the details of the day. Handmade bridesmaid gift bags were filled with locally made products from the Green Mountain State.  The birch-themed wedding cake seemed like a perfect fit for this wedding. We loved the bicycle cake topper, which also matched the graphics on the invitation!

After photographing dozens of weddings in Vermont, we have learned that the weather can be a bit unpredictable. After a very dark and cloudy morning, the sun came out during Charlotte and Matt’s picturesque meadow ceremony. It was obvious that luck was on their side!

Charlotte and Matt said their “I do’s” while under a beautiful chuppa, crafted out of birch wood and decorated with white roses and baby’s breath. Matt’s sister-in-law officiated the ceremony (her first ever) and she was a natural! Everything came together seamlessly.

We always enjoy capturing great candid moments of wedding guests on the dance floor, but I have to say, the traditional Hora dance is our favorite. Any photographer will tell you, hoisting the bride and groom up on chairs in the middle of a spinning frenzy of people just makes for fantastic photos. Charlotte and Matt’s Hora dance did not disappoint!

We had such a blast spending the day with these two and wish them the best of luck!

If you are looking for that perfect outdoor NH camp wedding venue, you have to check out the Woodbound Inn in Rindge, NH. Keriann and Alex couldn’t have chosen a more perfect place to host their wedding. This venue in southern NH has it all–a lakeside ceremony space under a canopy of trees, gorgeous views of Mount Monadnock, and a quaint Inn full of New England charm for wedding guests to stay overnight! These two seemed right at home here, and to be honest, this NH camp wedding conjured up lots of memories of our own wedding in the woods of this beautiful state.

When Keriann and Alex first inquired with us about documenting their NH camp wedding at Woodbound, we couldn’t write back fast enough. We have photographed other weddings at this venue before and absolutely love how relaxing of a space this venue is. Keriann prepared for the day in the bridal suite at the Inn, and Alex got ready with his groomsmen in the rustic lakeside cabin. These two chose to have a first look before the ceremony. After a few family portraits, they were able to kick back and enjoy their cocktail hour after saying “I do!”.

Keri and Alex’s dog Bentley is definitely a very important member of their family. One of my favorite photos from the day was when Bentley laid down between them during portraits. For the record, we absolutely love it when four-legged-friends are part of the wedding day, and the photos!

After dinner in the tent, a stunning orange and pink sunset swept over the lake. I was so happy when Keri and Alex were up for taking a few more photos on the beach with the mountains and sunset behind them! DJ Dave Nadeau kept the guests moving on the dance floor while guests found creative ways to incorporate the glow stick necklaces and bracelets that were handed out. One of my favorite moments of this wedding was when Keriann and Alex decided to take a moment to themselves and dance under the stars outside of the tent. Congratulations to these two newlyweds, who are currently honeymooning in Hawaii!

This summer wedding at the 1824 House in Vermont had us absolutely swooning. Hints of ethereal, romantic details were around every corner. From the strapless fairytale dress that Kelley wore to the dapper groomsmen in suspenders, we tried to capture all of the loveliness that this wedding was rocking! We have photographed tons of weddings in Waitsfield, but this was our first time at the 1824 House. After a bit of research, this wedding venue seemed like the perfect blend of rustic and elegance, and we were so excited to see it in person. Scroll down to see our favorite photos from the day!

Romantic Summer Wedding at the 1824 House

Vermont is a special place for this bride and groom. Kelley and Stephen met at Middlebury College where they fell in love with each other and this beautiful state. It only made sense that they would say their “I do’s” while surrounded by the Green Mountains. In addition to suspenders, Stephen wore a blue bowtie and a white button-up shirt to go along with his navy suit. Kelley wore flowers in her hair and a dress that had pockets! The pockets came in handy, as she could keep her sunglasses tucked away for those brighter moments during the outdoor ceremony.

We loved that the bridesmaids all wore different styles of white dresses–something that really looked fantastic in the wedding party pictures! The florist for the wedding was Jayson Munn, a renowned floral stylist based in Burlington, VT. He created a set of stunning rustic wedding bouquets made of purple thistles, seafoam poppy pods, succulents and white peonies.

Following the hilltop ceremony, guests were invited into the sailcloth tent for a rustic and cozy reception. Raw linen table runners with garlands of eucalyptus adorned the long dinner tables. Jars of honey personalized with the bride and groom’s pictures served as unique guest favors for everyone! There were several heartfelt speeches during the evening. Kelley’s sisters followed up their toasts with an amazing rendition of songs. They, along with many of their extended family, welcomed Stephen into the family by singing “We Are Family”!

As the sun went down, the dance floor picked up with the twinkling cafe lights of the tent overhead. A campfire outside set the scene for a delicious smore-making party outside and it seemed like the perfect ending to such a lovely wedding day. Congratulations to these two newlyweds. Thank you for including us in such a joyful day in the mountains of Vermont!

Thank you to all of amazing vendors who helped make the day so amazing!
