We started the day with a first look for the bride and groom and it almost brought tears to my eyes. They were both so excited to see each other in their wedding outfits!

Add some fun oversized lawn games and a VW Bus Photo booth and it’s a party!

At the end of the night, Brad and Elise escaped for some private time (but I followed them!)

It was was such a memorable day and I created a love-filled slide show to the music of Vermont’s own Kat Wright– So, go find a laptop to watch this (because it’s made in FLASH and wont run on your iPhone or iPad-sorry!)
