Jojo and Kelly got married this past Sunday, on the most perfect September day! This wedding was like a breath of fresh air, both the bride and groom were so relaxed and everyone was full of joy and laughter! Kelly got ready at her sisters house, surrounded by family and friends, and some of the cutest flower girls! Kelly is one of ten kids and Jojo is one of seven so they both had lots of help getting ready and keeping the day on track. The ceremony was conducted by an old friend, and four of Kelly’s sisters performed the music for the ceremony. After the ceremony we did all of the formals, and even had a visit from their dog, Boba. The reception was so fun, filled with lots of amazing dance moves!
This past weekend I had the honor of taking part in a vow renewal and bridal show at one of my favorite venues, Oakholm Farm. Meg and Tim were a real life couple, who had been married for five years, and had graciously volunteered to renew their vows in front of some family and some strangers. The day was absolutely perfect, we could not have asked for better weather! A horse drawn carriage escorted Meg to their ceremony down by the river, and the two exchanged sweet reminders of why they love each other and vowed to continue. I am so grateful for all of the vendors that came together to make this happen and worked together so well.

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!
