Alison � Joseph REAL WEDDING

JUNE 14, 2014 HARMONY POND FANCY GRADE FARM, WINHALL VERMONT PHOTOS BY POLIS PHOTOGRAPHY


ALI AND JOE ARE THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF HOW ONLINE DATING IS A REAL CHOICE FOR THE MODERN COUPLE. THEIR FIRST DATE WAS SUPPOSED TO JUST ENTAIL DRINKS, BUT DRINKS QUICKLY BECAME DINNER AS THEY DISCOVERED ALL THEY HAD IN COMMON INCLUDING OWNING THE SAME EXACT CAR (COLOR AND EVERYTHING). SOUTHERN VERMONT IS WHERE ALI GREW UP AND MUCH OF HER EXTENDED FAMILY STILL LIVES THERE, WHICH MADE IT THE OBVIOUS CHOICE FOR HOSTING THEIR WEDDING. THEY LOVED THAT ST. JOSEPH’S CHURCH WAS LARGE ENOUGH TO HOLD ALL OF THEIR GUESTS, YET STILL HAD THE COZY CHARM OF VERMONT. A BARN WAS AT THE TOP OF THEIR LIST FOR A VENUE LOCATION AND FANCY GRADE FARM FIT THE BILL, ALLOWING THE COUPLE TO DECORATE IT HOWEVER THEY CHOSE AND USE THE GORGEOUS LAND SURROUNDING IT FOR PHOTOS.

Erin � John REAL WEDDING

JULY 12, 2014 THE PONDS AT BOLTON VALLEY BOLTON, VERMONT PHOTOS BY FLOOR THREE PHOTOGRAPHY


AN OUTDOOR SPORT (RUNNING) IS WHAT BROUGHT JOHN AND ERIN TOGETHER IN THE BEGINNING, SO IT WAS ONLY FITTING THAT IT WAS IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS THAT JOHN PROPOSED. ON THE TOP OF A SNOW-COVERED BOLTON MOUNTAIN, ERIN SAID ‘YES’, THEN THEY SKIED DOWN THE TRAIL TO THEIR FUTURE. BOLTON MOUNTAIN WAS A FAVORITE CHILDHOOD VACATION FOR ERIN GROWING UP, AND ALSO THE SETTING FOR THEIR ENGAGEMENT. SO IT JUST MADE SENSE THAT THEY SHOULD HOST THEIR RECEPTION IN THE SAME MEMORABLE PLACE. THE NEARBY, HISTORIC ROUND CHURCH IN RICHMOND WAS AN EASY CHOICE FOR THE CEREMONY.

PLANNING A WEDDING IN VERMONT WHILE ERIN FINISHED GRADUATE SCHOOL IN VIRGINIA WAS QUITE THE CHALLENGE. THANKFULLY, THE COUPLE MOVED TO NEW HAMPSHIRE A COUPLE OF MONTHS BEFORE THE WEDDING, GIVING THEM TIME TO FINISH THE LAST DIY DETAILS. PAINTING CORNHOLE BOARDS (CONSTRUCTED BY ERIN’S DAD), SPRAY PAINTING VASES AND BASKETS, DESIGNING THE PROGRAMS, AND WRITING THEIR VOWS - IT ALL CAME TOGETHER TO CREATE THE RUSTIC-CHIC THEME THAT ERIN ENVISIONED.

JUNE 29, 2013 THE BARN AT BOYDEN FARM CAMBRIDGE, VERMONT PHOTOS BY LETTER10 CREATIVE


ERIN AND JOE KNEW THEY WANTED A DESTINATION WEDDING, BUT AFTER VISITING A FEW TROPICAL LOCALES, THEY REALIZED THE BEACH THEME WASN’T FOR THEM. LUCKILY, THEY SOON REALIZED THAT ANOTHER DESTINATION OPTION WAS CLOSER THAN THEY THOUGHT IN THE LUSH, GREEN MOUNTAINS OF VERMONT. ONCE THEY SAW THE BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF MT. MANSFIELD, THE PERFECTLY MANICURED GROUNDS OF THE FARM WITHIN THE LAMOILLE RIVER VALLEY, AND THE STUNNING WELL-KEPT BARN ITSELF – THEY KNEW BOYDEN FARM WAS A PERFECT FIT.
