Where to even begin? Ashley & Chris’ wedding had everything.
The venue: an active Alpaca Farm in the heart of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom with the most incredible views. Ah-mah-zing!
The weather gods: We witnessed a horrendous downpour just an hour prior to the ceremony. However, thanks to the power of that third rosary (and Ashley’s grandmother), it didn’t rain at the ceremony/reception site.
The people: Ashley & Chris. They’re amazing people. They’re fun, sweet, goofy, loving, caring and just all around good people. The kind of friends you want in your life. Added bonus when these friends can also do anything from building a bar to brewing their own beer.
The wedding dog: Winston!
And, of course, the families, friends & guests who came from as far as Hawaii to celebrate with Ashley & Chris and worked tirelessly to make their wedding dreams come true!
Mad props to my fabulous 2nd shooter for capturing these images of the groom getting ready with his family.
It’s no secret that I LOVE first look sessions because it’s so awesome to see the couple calm each other before saying their I dos…
… and, of course, rub a dog belly here and there. Nothing better than that.
I think I may have mentioned the view once or twice. Or more. In any case, the only thing rivaling the sweeping vistas was watching Ashley & Chris beam with happiness and joy as they exchanged the vows they had written for each other.
Taking these guys’ wedding photos was such a treat!
We even got the Alpacas to participate (or at least managed to not scare them off entirely!)
Swoon! How adorable are Ashley & Chris?
Love, love, LOVEEEE this photo of Ashley in her stunning wedding dress.
It’s easy to see the countless hours of love & work that went into designing all the amazing wedding details.
So there’s officially photographic evidence to settle the “Who started the cake smash” debate. By a micro-second, Ashley did do the first smashing.
Ashley & Chris – it was such an incredible honor to share your wedding day with you and witness the love you have for each other. I know you’re already back at work but I hope you find a couple of hours this week to sit back and relive some of your wedding day magic!
With much love & appreciation.
