KRISTEN & MICHAEL // JUNE 30, 2018 // BARN AT SMUGG'S, JEFFERSONVILLE, VERMONT

i love a simple, laid back wedding, with underlining touches of elegance and creative meaning. this wedding hit all of those notes and i was so honored to have photographed kristen & michael's wedding day at the gorgeous barn at smuggler's notch in jeffersonville, vermont. 

i adore how chic yet simple kristen is - in her wedding planning and everyday life. stylish yet effortless. i also adore the love story of how she ended up walking down the isle to michael - a local bartender at his parents bar in rutland.

"he's the only person other than my mom who makes be feel better,"

she told me over breakfast. their first encounter dates back to high school catechism class, where michael from the city (aka a city boy) high fived kristen, a girl from the town (aka a "townie"), which was a sweet memory to giggle over; From high fives, to kissing in the beer closet to having their gorgeous daughter to now tying the knot!

the florals were perfect, michael indulged in the heat (thanks michael!), their ring barer carried their rings in a toy replica of their red ford truck (you can see their engagement session with it here), and elle was delighted at all opportunities to explore her mother's wedding dress, under & sitting on top!

what a perfectly stunning day, for two perfectly stunning people, inside & out. 
XOXO

NICOLE & JASON // JUNE 10, 2018 // ESSEX RESORT + SPA, VERMONT

when the dj gets married...

i remember the first wedding i worked with jason - because it was the first (and only) time i was actually DANCING while taking the family formals (typically the most hectic part of the day for us photographers)! this kid knows how to ROCK IT! and anyone that shows up to a wedding with actual turn tables and a mixer and i am allll ears! whenever i come in to see the dj set up and it's him, there's this "YASSS" i scream in my head! bottom line..i adore jason and his dj talents and know it's going to be an enjoyable night!

enter this pretty girl, nicole. if a unicorn was human, it would be nicole. she is all the things. sweet, thoughtful, funny, adorable, and a talented hair dresser who has worked some CKPhoto shoots (ppsstt, the Michael Jackson editoral shoot? yep! that was HER!) also not to mention her grandmother. i want to be her grandmother when i grow up! she just could not stop dancing & smiling!

their family & friends were just as sweet, fun and wonderful as they are, and this room was dynomite on the dance floor (i mean, you can imagine!) this is the dj crowd!

i am literally foaming at the mouth to create their wedding album, because there were so many tender & beautiful moments & ALLLLLLL the feels when nicole walked down the isle and jason looses it at the altar!! talk about getting tissues!!

nicole & jason // you incredible humans, keep laughing (making each other laugh, which always makes me laugh), never stop shinning & never stop loving. we all love you so much!

XOXO

DANIELLE & MATT // JUNE 2, 2018 // DORSET, VERMONT

gorgeous, gorgeous!

there could not have been a more delicious spring day for danielle and matt's wedding in dorset, vermont. the temperature was heavenly, the sun was shinning until the gorgeous setting over the outdoor reception & bistro lights took over. 

i know i am not the only one when i say how taken back i was to this breathing taking bride danielle transformed into! every last detail from her earrings, to her dress to her hair & make-up was as elegant as classic! what a lucky guy matt is - he must have a horse shoe up his tush (best man's words, not mine!)

i had a ball with their family & friends, what an intimate setting with all the feelings throughout the day! thank you both, matt & danielle for having me there with you! i have too many favorites from the day!

XOXO
