We were instantly excited when Sean and Krissy reached out to us about photographing their elegant Shelburne Farms wedding in Vermont. We’ve seen so many weddings from this venue and couldn’t wait to photograph a wedding there. After seeing Krissy’s Etsy shop, Cottage Farm, we knew this wedding would have some seriously gorgeous vintage styling. She has an amazing eye for design and it was on full display for the reception at the Coach Barn. These two planned their New England wedding from their home in San Francisco. I can only imagine the challenges of planning such a big event from 3,000 miles away!
Elegant Shelburne Farms Wedding Photography
After doing a “first look” on the lawn in front of the Shelburne Farms Inn, we moved outside. The colorful flower garden was a perfect spot with the mountains over Lake Champlain as the backdrop. Krissy wore a stunning gown with a brocade pattern and lace sleeves. We couldn’t get enough detail photos of this amazing dress! When the weather started to get misty, Krissy pulled out two clear bubble umbrellas for just such an occasion. Not only did they provide a little relief from the rain, but they turned out to make a great prop for the photos.
The ceremony was held out on the lawn, right next to Lake Champlain hence the stunning view! The water, mountains, and nearby pines provided a serene ceremony setting. Guests were then invited into the beautiful Coach Barn for the cocktail hour. Inside the barn, small tea lights in glass globes hung from the ceiling and two long family style tables were set for dinner. Unique flowers decorated the tables, and included what I think were pitcher plants. It looked like a fairytale. ;)
We just loved this wedding and enjoy every chance we get to photograph weddings at Shelburne Farms! Here’s another Shelburne Farms Wedding we photographed at this stunning venue!
