Bekah and Bobby live around Boston but with Bekah growing up in VT and both Bekah and Bobby attending UVM, a wedding in Vermont was the perfect spot for the happy couple’s nuptials. I am always happy to take the ride up to Vermont, as I grew up outside of Burlington and love to get back and visit as much as I can. Especially during the Summer in picturesque Stowe!
The day started inside the bridal suite at The Stowehof Inn where Bekah and her eight bridesmaids gathered before the ceremony. Bekah’s gorgeous lace dress looked right at home hanging from the four poster bed inside the suite.
Bekah’s grandmother came into the suite and gave her a blue vintage handkerchief to carry with her – a beautiful something old and something blue.
Getting the party started off right!
While the ladies helped Bekah select her earrings for the big day and sipped on champagne, the guys were downstairs hanging with my second shooter, Louisa.
Bobby looking cool and collected (with a haircut if you recall their Boston engagement session!) hanging out on the porch spying on the tent and ceremony site below.
His eight groomsmen weren’t looking too shabby either.
I grabbed this shot of a few guys relaxing by the pool enjoying a drink from the bridal suite.
Meanwhile Bekah was looking absolutely stunning.
A proud father waits to walk down the aisle…
The officiant was wonderful and kept the ceremony lively and fun – I love this shot of real raw laughter from the bride and groom – its OK to be yourselves up there!
While the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour by the pool with this stunning afternoon view…
…I snuck off with Bekah and Bobby to have a quiet moment alone and capture some beautiful portraits of them. Hilarious moment of the afternoon – jumping into my car to drive up the road a bit and forgetting that my muffler busted on the drive up to the wedding – it was a loud ride in my chariot! But it was worth it to photograph images like these.
And my favorite… isn’t it so ‘Sound of Music’?
Then off to celebrate with family and friends!
A heartfelt toast from Best Man Nick
I think this was about the time Bobby was grateful to have the band welcome other couples onto the dance floor ;)
Bekah & Bobby, thank you so much for trusting me to capture your big day, best wishes for the many wonderful years I know you two will share together!
