Mad River Valley VT – Waitsfield Barn Wedding Photography – Nick & Chelsea

Vermont’s Mad River Valley is home to the quaint little town of Waitsfield where picturesque barns are everywhere, and the rolling green hills seem to go on forever. Nestled just two miles south of Waitsfield is one of our favorite rustic and outdoor barn venues, the Lareau Farm Inn, where Nick and Chelsea decided to tie the knot! Being avid mountain bicyclists, this was the perfect outdoorsy spot for their wedding… Nick even did a mountain bike ride by accessing a trail on the property the morning of the wedding!

Chelsea and her bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done at the Pitcher Inn in Warren, VT, and their vintage-ski themed room was so unique and gorgeous! After getting ready, these two had their first look on the path at Lareau and of course, we had to shoot some portraits on the mountain bike trail! Also, a first for us was getting a photo of Nick and Chelsea actually ON their mountain bikes, in full wedding attire in front of one of the red barns on the property. Amazing.

After their ceremony in a private field, the reception began in the covered pavilion, with dinner catered by Lareau’s next door neighbor, Flatbread Pizza! Reception highlights included a speech by Paul, that reminded every single person listening how fast time can fly when you are spending it with little ones. I’ve never had so many tears in my eyes at once!! Roasting marshmallows, getting wild in the photobooth, and outrageous dancing also ensued, and I think it’s safe to say that everyone at this wedding had an absolute blast.
