Katie and Rob married on the most beautiful August day, at the West Mountain Inn in Arlington, Vermont.
I’m beside myself to realize I haven’t yet blogged Katie and Rob’s wedding! It happens for various reasons, namely when other publications are interested in sharing a wedding exclusively, or when the details of a wedding are so seasonal that I’m excited to post at a certain time. I do try to share every single wedding, but there are a handful still holding – and I’m bursting with excitement for you to see them!
As for Katie and Rob – it just doesn’t get any more perfect for a Vermont wedding! Green Mountains, summer sunshine, llamas, a barn… and so much laughter and love!
It rained until five minutes before their ceremony start, but then what a beautiful light we had among the Green Mountains of Vermont!
The flowers were among the most amazing I’ve ever seen, created by a friend of the couple, and grower at Green Peak Farm in Dorset, VT, Megan Osterhout. I love the local and in-season sourcing, perfect for a summer day!
My own wedding was at the West Mountain Inn as well, in the middle of a snowy winter. The barn wasn’t yet restored for weddings at the time, so it was really amazing to see such a lovely spot open up for Katie and Rob’s dinner and celebration! It was also pretty darn cool to have my husband alongside to assist in photographing this special day!
I loved the wooden tray used as a guest book. The journals on each table were meant to be filled by guests, capturing stories to combine into one whole. Quite a unique take – similar in concept to the disposable camera idea, but in words!
The cake and incredible spread of desserts was a contribution from the groom’s sister, a dessert chef in Boston (and I’m also pretty excited to photographer HER wedding this coming summer!).
So many personal touches and contributions made Katie and Rob’s day unique. There was a Laphroaig station in honor of their dog, named after their favorite scotch, and as a surprise, Katie’s dad came out in full bag-piper glory to cheer the newlyweds!
Congratulations to you both, Katie and Rob! It was truly been an honor and a pleasure hangin’ with you guys over the last year and a half! Our snowy Stowe engagement session goes down in history for one of my all-time favorites as well! See you soon again! XO
