After 5 years of dating, going on road trips and traveling, graduate school and knowing they could grow together, Evan proposed to Colleen during their trip to Japan, down on one knee while overlooking the sleepy 16th Century town of Takayama. On Saturday, Colleen & Evan tied the knot surrounded by family and friends in the quaint little 18th Century town of Waitsfield, Vermont. I spent some time at the vacation rental the guys were getting ready at … after ironing their ties & having their hair done, they set the fun meter to MAX and that’s where it was going to stay for the rest of the day.
Over at the bride’s headquarters, the always gorgeous 1824 House, the fun meter was also set to “max” despite having been cooped up since 9am to finish hair & make-up and it was incredible to be in the company of such amazing women and such great friends.
Colleen & Evan’s wedding ceremony was moved into the barn and couldn’t have been any more personal and meaningful if they tried. The “rock’n'roll” officiant did an awesome job and many a tear was shed.
We moved the family formals into the barn as well as cocktail hour started in the tent behind the barn and despite the downpour, managed to have an awesome time.
Colleen & Even – along with the world’s most amazing officiant, Tom, who had no problem getting soaked himself so Colleen & Evan could still have stunning outdoor wedding photos.
The beautiful bridal bouquet was created by Nancy from A Schoolhouse Garden.
Absolutely loved the purple wedding decor.
Speaking of purple: Colleen’s Maid of Honor, Cherilyn, dyed her hair purple for the occasion as well.
I admit, I may have cried just a little bit during their first dance as husband and wife because they’re just so perfect together.
The rain was still falling late that night so we decided to sneak out for just more “after dark” wedding photo and I couldn’t have been any happier with the outcome.
Colleen & Evan – It was so much fun being part of your day and I know that your fun & adventure meter will always be set to “MAX”.
