I’ve been absolutely terrible about blogging… for a year now, to be honest. But every Monday, I’m posting a double-handful of photos from the weekend’s wedding for all to enjoy!!!vermont weddingKathryn and Ross celebrated with an incredible backyard wedding at her family home in Williston, Vermont this weekend. They couldn’t have been sweeter – with each other, with their friends and families, and even with us, their vendors. We walked around downtown Burlington together, enjoying the mountains and views over Lake Champlain, and then returned to their family home in Williston for a lovely ceremony and dinner. I loved that their reception evening centered around lawn games until dark!wedding on church street in burlingtonlake champlain weddingbackyard wedding in vermontevening wedding in vermontHead on over to Stacey Hedman | photography on Facebook for a big glimpse into their beautiful love!

Earlier last week, I shared one of my all-time favorite sessions on my other blog, Cold Nose Photo!

If you didn’t know this about me already, I’m a huge dog-lover, and photographing dogs is actually how my whole business started in 2009!

This session was a gorgeous day out of Boston Sailing Center with two couples and their dogs – all great friends, and a fantastic Saturday morning together! CLICK HERE to follow over to the full post!

Erika and Adam planned their winter elopement at the Chatham Bars Inn this past December!

It’s definitely one of the coolest honors to be alone with a couple as they say their vows to each other, and to no one else. Winter on Cape Cod is one of the best times to do it – a deserted beach, and the quiet noises from the local fishing pier.

Erika and Adam walked down to the Boat House together, and met me and the lovely Rev. Kathleen Geagan in the sand!

Kelly and Darren invited their friends and family to join them for a beautiful destination winter wedding at the Banff Springs Hotel this December!

Winter weddings make my heart go pitter-patter already, and being able to return to the gorgeous region of Banff National Park was the icing on the [very cold] cake! And these two are made of the warmest love ever – thank you, Kelly and Darren, for inviting me in to share this celebration with you!

Those following along on Instagram will have learned I have some close ties to Banff – namely in the neighboring town of Canmore. I lived there in the Rockies in the summer of 2011, found amazing friendships in Julie and Adam, and later spent a month in Italy with Julie last spring. She and I are both photographers, and I was lucky to have her alongside for this beautiful Banff wedding! In turn, I went back to Banff again this March to help her with two weddings! Yep – getting my excellent fill of winter weddings in the mountains – perfect!! Maybe we’ll have Julie out this way for some New England weddings soon! (credit to Julie for the above right image! I love knowing she’s capturing creative mountain angles!)

Kelly and Darren got ready with friends at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. It was a festive morning filled with laughter!

The wedding ceremony took place in the stunning Cascade Ballroom of the Hotel. And my absolute fav was them turning to call their dog, Charlie, up to the top of the aisle to walk out with them!

Below is the view from the ballroom as we moved back indoors for an evening of toasts, stories, dancing, and a photo booth! So much of this gorgeous setting, and the smooth planning of the day is attributed to Callandra of Cherry Tree Occasions! Always such a pleasure working with her and her team!

I didn’t want to sign off on this post without sharing a few peeks from Kelly and Darren’s rehearsal dinner at Rocky Mountain Flatbread in Canmore! An ugly-sweater party, just days before Christmas! BEST. EVER.
