Christina and Ryan knew that they wanted to have a barn wedding in the fall in New England. We were thrilled when we heard that they were looking at an October date at the Riverside Farm in Pittsfield, VT. This is one of those wedding venues in Vermont that had been on our “wish list” to photograph for a while now!
Christina and Ryan eloquently summed up why they wanted a rustic wedding. “Rustic weddings are clean and unpretentious, and are charming in their warmth and simplicity. We felt that this would allow our guests to feel the depth and genuineness of our love, and would create an experience that was bigger than just the two of us.”

More about this barn wedding at Riverside Farm:
Surrounded by fall foliage, these two said “I do” during an outdoor ceremony with handwritten vows. After the ceremony guests were invited into the rustic reception barn. They were greeted with hundreds of lit candles in the rafters and family style tables set with burlap runners and garlands of greenery. It was one of the most romantic scenes we have documented! In contrast with the crisp fall weather outside, the barn felt incredibly cozy and welcoming!
Christina spent most of the day barefoot, which we adored! She was happy to romp through the woods without shoes… my kind of girl! This happy couple was also very lucky to have such a talented artist among the bridesmaids. Megan Weaver, owner of 200 Lemons, created all of the florals, stationary, and the tree branch guest book!
Ryan gave an incredibly thoughtful and touching speech that was one of our favorite moments from the day. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room! We loved the “make your own cupcakes” buffet. To wrap things up, guests gathered outside to send Christina and Ryan off with a blaze of sparklers!
