I have literally been so excited for this wedding all year, I adore Vermont…and Ciara and Alec incorporated so much of Vermont into their wedding day, from a first look at a covered bride, flannel shirts for the girls, and Vermont craft ales. Both Alec and Ciara got ready separately at the inn, surrounded by their friends and family. Ciara’s grandmother had eye surgery the prior week and was not able to fly in, so she was face timed into the getting ready with the ladies. Ciara did a first look with her bridesmaids, dad, and Alec….this made my first look heart so happy!
Water is really important to Alec and he wanted to get his toes wet in the Saxton River, so after their first look, we hiked down to the river and did just that. I love when couples take chances on their wedding days and aren’t afraid to get a little dirty 🙂
Alec’s dad preformed their wedding ceremony, and I loved seeing this twist on a JP. I have seen friends perform the wedding ceremony before, but never a parent. It made everything more personal. I loved Ciara and Alec’s nontraditional vows, especially that she promised to not get hangry when fed regularly (a girl after my own heart)! After their first kiss as a married couple, their guests threw confetti, which was a colorful and fun surprise!
The reception was held in the barn and full of desserts, Ciara loves to bake and baked her own wedding cake and cupcakes! I didn’t get to try one (they were gone so fast) but they looked amazing! Ciara’s grandfather started off the festivities with a toast and the crowd danced the night away!

Kamil and Emma got married last weekend at the Wight Barn in Sturbridge, MA. They both got ready at Emma’s childhood home surrounded by family. I loved all of the little thoughtful details that Emma’s family presented them with…her mom had saved her grandmother’s handkerchief from her wedding for Emma. I loved her dad’s reaction to see her for the first time.
They had their first look in the backyard overlooking the Pioneer Valley, and we just managed to miss the torrential thunderstorms. Then we headed over to the barn, I love their indoor ceremony space. It is so bright and clean looking!
The reception hall was decorated with peonies and lots of greenery. Emma’s sister and dad gave some amazing speeches, I was totally tearing up during her dad’s speech. There was lots of dancing throughout the night and we ended the evening with pizza, sliders, and an ice cream bar…the perfect ending!

Kelly and I have known each other for years, so when she asked if I would come up to New Hampshire to capture her engagement photos I was so psyched!! They chose to do their photos at Diana’s Baths and Cathedral Ledge (look for the second half in tomorrow’s blog post!) and I couldn’t have been happier!

Oh my gosh, Carissa and Wes…what can I say?! This wedding was an absolute dream, from start to finish! Things didn’t always go according to plan, like the thunderstorms that interrupted our formals, and the hail that rained down on you on the walk over to the ceremony; but through it all you two never stopped smiling!
