Over Labor Day weekend, I shot my first destination wedding. Erin and Curtis decided to host their wedding in a unique country home housing great architectural details and modern art overlooking the Green Mountains in Vermont. Surrounded by an ever present group of people coming and going over the course of the weekend, they were able to have fun while setting up for the big event in a relaxed environment. On Sunday August 31st, as rain poured down over the entire East Coast, the festivities soared at the estate. As Erin descended down the stairs in the wedding dress she made herself, making her first appearance a collective ahhh came from all of those anxiously watching from below. In the kitchen her sister Mel diligently worked on the wedding cake. After their first look, Erin and Curtis agreed to host the ceremony under the large tent due to the rain. As guests moved along outside they enjoyed spirits hand crafted by their distillery friend which flowed in abundance. A portable wood firing oven prepared delicious pizza from local Burlington eatery American Flatbread. Despite the dampness, the guests and their dogs celebrated the couple in full excitement. Married by close friend and artist, Travis Iurato, the couple read their handwritten vows in a laid back ceremony honoring their love and mutual sense of adventure. Special thanks to my backup photographer Samantha Seeley of Sweet Remedy for her assistance and company during the course of the weekend. I'd also like to acknowledge that all of the beautiful centerpieces, boutonnieres, and Erin's bouquet were all made with love by Curtis' mother. Enjoy!
