Lee Ann and Margaret traveled from Texas to Stowe, Vt, to be able to look each other in the eyes and proclaim their marriage vows each other. Under a Chupah, and the watchful eyes of a rabbi and a few witnesses, the two women exchanged rings, signed the ketubah (the Jewish marriage license), stepped on the glass (Mazel Tov!) and were proclaimed, with the power vested by the State of Vermont… MARRIED!
IT is always exciting to be a part of a same sex wedding in Vermont, because I am so proud and happy to live in a state where all marriages are honored and LEGAL. And, of course, I have the greatest job in the world, which allows me to be as part of such joyous celebrations most every week (at least from May through October!). So, on this wet, rainy day, after a lovely ceremony and some champagne (while the skies cleared from the third or fourth rainstorm of the afternoon), the couple walked the gorgeous grounds at Stone Hill Inn and we made some romantic and beautiful pictures. Here is a sample of images from the memorable afternoon, to Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love.”
