Fall Wedding at the Lareau Farm Inn – Waitsfield, VT – Robyn & Matty

When we first received an inquiry from Robyn & Matty for their fall wedding at the Lareau Farm in Waitsfield, VT, we were instantly smitten with these two. Robyn shared the incredible story of how she and Matty fell in love, and graciously told us that we could also share that story here, as part of their wedding blog post…

With a group of friends, Matty and Robyn went to the Gathering of the Vibes Music Festival in Red Hook, NY. The first night at the festival, their entire campsite was struck by lightening and everyone was electrocuted. As Robyn reminded me on the wedding day, “Sparks literally flew!” Ambulances were called, and after hospital visits, the group realized that everyone would be okay. “Beer-less and exhausted, our group trekked to the main stage for some music. I, however, was still unable to hear. I stood in the crowd upset and shivering. Suddenly, these great big bear arms wrapped around me. Matty had covered me in a blanket. He gently walked me to his chair, sat me down on his lap, and I spent the rest of the night cocooned in his arms. That feeling, that comfort, is how this man would make me feel for the next 13 1/2 years.”

Not many couples can say that lightening literally brought them together! A September wedding at the Lareau Farm Inn seemed to be the perfect venue for these two to declare their love in front of their community. Set in the Mad River Valley, Lareau is surrounded by forests, home to the original Flatbread Pizza company, and a spot where Robyn and Matty have spent many nights around the campfire pit. Their ceremony was held on the back porch of the Inn and during their procession, a surprise flash mob played a rendition of the song “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros! Members of their immediate families spoke and shared heartfelt stories before Robyn’s father officially pronounced them husband and wife.

It was truly a pleasure to document the union of these two, and we can’t thank them enough for including us.
