Niki ďż˝ Tim real wedding

August 31, 2013 Mountain Meadow Farm weston, Vermont Photos by Kristin Castenschiold photography

niki and tim’s romance is a classic vermont love story, from meeting at the local watering hole where niki first worked after relocating from out of state, to their first date going four wheeling. the ludlow couple may have taken an untraditional route to the alter, but they wouldn’t have had it any other way after looking at dozens of venues, niki and tim finally found the perfect spot for their rustic, country themed nuptuals at a private residence in weston.

the soft peach, white, green, and gray color palette that niki chose was carried through all of the little details of the day. from the flower girl’s bouquet to the embroidery on the bride’s cowgirl boots. guest’s were greeted by a paper lantern lined drive and paper stars hanging from trees. the country style could be seen everywhere, in a tractor backdrop for photos, cowgirl boots, mason jar and burlap decor on the tables, and a rustic barn for dancing.
