How I met Katie and Adam is a story in itself. My high school guidance counselor (also, an up and coming wedding officiant!) has been following my work since I moved to Florida five years ago. Old college buddies with Adam, he showed them my portfolio. I was ecstatic when Katie contacted me. What? A wedding in Woodstock! At the Woodstock Inn? Not only is this a place where Rockefeller's used to hang, but Woodstock has been coined by National Geographic as "one of America's most picturesque villages". And, it surely is.
Adam and Katie reside in the Boston area but Vermont (and our delicious selection of craft beers) remains in their heart. So their reception was naturally held at Long Trail Brewery.
The day was perfect. The sun was high and fresh mountain air blew lightly around the small village. Family and friends gathered in front of the inn—Adam trying to hold back his tears—as he watched Katie walk down the flowered pathway with her father. Her smile was wide. Her father's face full of happiness.
After the ceremony, portraits were taken on Woodstock's famous covered bridge. Shortly after, the bridal party jumped into a yellow school bus on the way to the brewery. The night rolled on with delicious beer and BBQ. Flowers sat on every picnic table with handmade vases by Katie. A moose glared at the partygoers from the wall. I talked with Vermonters, city-goers who were enjoying their weekend in the green mountains and those behind the bar. It was relaxed and it was "as Vermont as it gets!" And Katie and Adam never stopped smiling.
It was SO difficult choosing only a few photos from each part of the day for this post. I hope you all enjoy and fall in LOVE with this Woodstock wedding.
