Sarah’s delicate vintage wedding dress had previously been worn by her mother and her grandmother and had been carefully altered and restored to be worn one final time.

Doing a site visit with Sarah & Josh just two weeks before their wedding, I was amazed by the easy-going nature of our hosts, Rebecca & Dan, who go above and beyond to make sure every tiny little detail is taken care of. Sarah & Josh’s wedding ceremony inside a circle of sunflowers, surrounded by their families & friends with the gorgeous Green Mountains as a backdrop was so incredibly heartfelt – it was such an incredible honor to witness two people so perfect for each other swear to love and to protect one other … in good times and during challenging times.

I love this wedding party! A word about the best man. He truly was the best “best man” in the history of best men. He took care of so many little things behind the scenes that made for an incredibly smooth day!

Ah, the decor. A wedding photographer’s dream. I absolutely loved everything about this wedding. The “family tree” was literally a beautiful strong tree with Sarah & Josh’s loved ones’ family photos.

The wedding cake was also a labor of love with the cake topper being another family heirloom.

The custom wine bottles, rustic wooden table signs paired with wildflowers in different sized vases added the perfect touch to this Vermont wedding…

… the various blue and white plates & goblets were from Petunia Rose because that’s what both of their parents collected when they were growing up.

The toasts were amazing. There were tears, there was laughter and there was heartfelt screaming … which I truly hope somebody captured on video. 🙂

After dinner, the party moved from the tent to the Bartlett House and then the Party Started. Josh’s band, Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band, brought down the house and Sarah finally got her wish: to dance with Josh while his band was playing!
