Courtney & Sevi made the drive from Boston to Stowe last weekend to catch peak foliage season here in Vermont for their engagement photos. Not only did they own fall completely, they absolutely dominated fall. They might have even crushed it.;-)

Courtney & Sevi – you’re so gorgeous & fun together and I had such a great time spending the afternoon with you and taking photos of your gorgeous selves. Can’t wait for your wedding next year! Oh, and Courtney – if you lived any closer, I’d be raiding your closet on a daily basis.;-)

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.

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.

    Thank you Kat, you’ve really capture the fun, laughter & love of Colleen Marie & Evan Rutledge Borden

A couple of birthdays ago, I tried to bake you a cake. A chocolate cheesecake that you mistook for brownies – however, to be fair, baking has never been my strong suit. Neither is telling a story in words and not in photos, I wish I could show you how much you mean to me.

I love how you always find the positive in any situation.
I love how you always believe in me.
I love how you always put our family first.
I love how much you love the dogs.
I love how you always have my back.
I love your smile.
I love you!

Damian

You truly are my better half and I wish you the happiest of birthdays. Oh, and there is an actual cake in the fridge. Just leave some for me.;-)

Nelia & Dave managed to celebrate a casual Vermont wedding with a strong sense for family & tradition and brought to life autumn in the NEK in the most perfect of ways. The Notch House at Lake Willoughby provided the perfect location for their nuptials and the weather gods were on our side the entire weekend – or maybe it was Nelia’s mother, whose stunning wedding dress had been incorporated into many aspects of the day, watching over her daughter’s wedding to Dave.

Nelia & Dave requested an “unplugged wedding” and it was fantastic to see guests actually enjoy the ceremony, watch, cry and not hide behind a sea of phones or ipads. Absolutely beautiful. Nelia also requested that I stay behind the guests during the ceremony as to not obstruct anybody’s view and I happily obliged – these are the times when I really, really love my trusted 70-200 zoom lens so Nelia & Dave still got to have great wedding photos up close.

Loved, loved, loved the ingenious escort card idea that perfectly tied into the fall theme.

During the toasts, we graduated from wedding planning academy, learned the importance of this very simple phrase “sounds like a great idea” and also found some similarities between a visit to the nude beach and public speaking.

Jenn met Lewis when she was prosecuting a case in court and he was there to testify. Nothing happened at the time but as fate would have it, their paths crossed again and here we are today … a super cute couple & dog. I had a great time photographing Jennifer & Lewis’ engagement session a couple of weekends ago – and, of course, Gunny was part of it as well!
