Sugarbush VT Wedding Photography – Sarah & Thierry’s Rustic Mountain Wedding

There is a first time for everything. Sarah and Thierry are the first couple that we’ve had the pleasure of photographing twice on their wedding day. Last June they had a lovely and intimate garden wedding. This past June they invited a lot more wedding guests, and had a much larger Sugarbush VT wedding surrounded by the green mountains. Weddings are always such wonderful celebrations, but Sarah and Thierry really upped the ante with theirs–they are expecting a baby this fall!

More about this Sugarbush, VT Wedding…

There was so much to be happy about at this wedding. Wonderful candid and natural moments were everywhere. One of our favorites was the hilarious toast that Thierry’s son gave, in which he revealed his GPA to them. Another was Sarah’s father seeing her for the first time, with Paul Simon’s “Father and Daughter” song playing randomly in the background. Everyone was smiling when Thierry surprised Sarah at the reception by walking out while holding a stereo above his head just like John Cusack in “Say Anything”.

This wedding went so seamlessly well, we asked Sarah if she had any advice for other couples who might be expecting a baby and planning a wedding at the same time. She sent us some incredibly helpful suggestions that we thought we would share! She said, “Setting a wedding date that falls within your second trimester is key, as that’s when most women typically look and feel their best.” Sarah also suggested not taking on too many DIY projects or trying to coordinate the entire wedding yourself. “Between the hormones, work, doctor appointments and baby brain, DIY can get stressful, and then you and your fiancee suffer.”

During pregnancy, all emotions are heightened, so making sure you have vendors you trust and a great coordinator for the day is essential. She talked about how important it is for expecting brides to EAT throughout the day! “I lost and hour+ of our reception because I forgot to eat something substantial before the ceremony and wasn’t up to all of the mingling and dancing until after we ate dinner”.  Lastly, she points out how important it is to physically take care of yourself both on the wedding day, and the days following the wedding. Sarah said that wearing flats, and putting your feet up whenever you can throughout the day made a big difference. She added, “Make sure you have at least two days after the wedding to do nothing, just unwind and let your body regulate itself again!”.

Thank you to Sarah and Thierry for trusting us to document the memories of not one, but TWO of your wedding days. We wish your growing family all the best!
