I dont often meet real-life “cowgirls”, but I think I have to put Suzie and Joni in that category. They came to Vermont to get married all the way from Cheyenne, Wyoming, complete with cowboy boys and two huge hats (maybe not 10-gallon, but pretty darn impressive!)
Their Southern charm was infectious, as was their obvious love for each other and their desire to be legally united. Though their marriage will not be recognized by their home state, here in the great state of Vermont–and certainly forever in their hearts–their union is considered both valid and precious. I was honored to bear witness to their exchange of wedding vows and their declaration of love.
It was one of those overcast Fall days, a little soggy, but the color was gorgeous and Grunberg Haus, a romantic Austrian style bed and breakfast in Waterbury, was a perfect setting for their intimate ceremony (just them and their JP and the innkeeper!).
The service was all of ten minutes, after which the couple drank champagne, ate cake and danced to an playlist on their Iphone. From there, it was to be a celebratory dinner at Michael’s on the Hill (yum!) and then a couple of more days of Vermont R&R, before heading back to Wyoming as Mrs. and Mrs!

Congratulation, Joni and Suzie. and a special YAHOO to both of you!
