I think with last week’s sneak peek, you’re probably aware that I’ve got something fun to share. Not sure where to even start with this one. It’s been nearly 2 years that I’ve been waiting to share these images. Meghan and Chris’ beautiful wedding was just recently featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and I think you’ll see why when you see how stunning this day really was. I was more than honored to be able to capture this day. It was a visual Candyland for me, and after three days of shooting (I slept like never before at the end of it), I was extremely proud of the work I did to capture the moments, the feel and the beauty of this gorgeous day. A special thanks to Mark Davidson for his help during the weekend. A few of the images below belong to Mark and I’m grateful for his help! I think you’ll also see that Meghan and Chris made the task pretty easy and I was so fun to see these two happy faces tie the knot.
Without further adieu, I’ve pulled some of my favorite moments and details from the day to give you a feel for everything. I hope you enjoy!
Nothing like red barn in the Vermont sun to set the scene. Invitations below were designed and printed by Gus and Ruby out of Portsmouth, NH.
Girls started their morning with a little slideshow:
The talented Lena, from Hair that Moves, securing Meghan’s hair into place.
Rain and fog greeted the girls in the morning. Here they look over the ceremony site as it literally pours. Grim outlook for the outdoor ceremony under the tall pines.
Meghan never seemed worried for a moment…. although she did watch the rain closely.
Mark hung out with the guys as they got ready. Chris makes some final adjustments to the wardrobe.
I was able to sneak a quick portrait of Chris before the ceremony.
The girls begin getting ready to wait.

A few of my favorite details from the ceremony. Chalkboard by Gus and Ruby.
Meghan and her father make their way down the isle as Chris watches.
A truly magnificent place to be married.
Klaus seems nonplussed to be part of the action.
More ceremony details:
All smiles during the ceremony.
The couple is literally being pelted with lavender from the guests! Guests get so hostile with things to throw!
A stolen kiss at the end of the isle.
The couple whisked away in a vintage Austin Healy:
The bridal party’s ride wasn’t too shabby either.
A little bubbly to celebrate the moment.
Just enough room for the whole bunch.
These two made my job pretty easy.
Klaus steals the show:
Meghan and her father:
Love this casual formal of the bridal party.
I had a few moments alone with the couple. I wanted to incorporate the old New England stone walls, trees and the gorgeous light pouring through.
Took the couple up to the hilltop for some shots with the view.
One of my favorites from the day.
Wait till you see this cake spread. This is not your ordinary cake station… this is a cake making bar. That’s right… choose your own adventure. And it was A-MAZ-ING. amazing. Kudos to Erin Gardner from Wild Orchid Baking Company for this concept.
The first dance…. so cute.
Watching these two during the toasts just made you giggle because of how happy they were to be together.
Husband and wife.
Congo line? Yes please. Grandma? Check.
Some pyrotechnics to kick off the party before the rain came.
Despite all the shuffle, they were still together. Love this one.
I feel like this one sums up the whole weekend.
