Jean and Bob’s Wedding

What do you get when you take a gorgeous couple in love, add in a slew of adorable toddlers in tuxedos and party dresses and top it off with a perfect summer day?

Bob and Jean were married on August 29 at The Vermont National County Club in South Burlington and it was nothing short of magical!

Corralling this energetic bridal party together for a portrait was no small task!

Both the bride and groom looked gorgeous in their eloquent wedding clothes and I loved Bob’s little flash of ORANGE whimsy along with his formal tux and tails:

It was so fun making portraits of this love struck couple.

Many giggles from the crowd watching this bridal procession…

…And so touching to watch Jean‘s son escort her down the aisle and “give away” the bride!

The whole event was just beautiful, from the flowers to the food to the personal details like pictures of Bob and Jean’s children at the entrance table. Their wedding bible was a gift from Bob‘s aunt, who officiated the ceremony.

The first dance as husband and wife..

A perfect moment for “grandma” Jean and one of her bridesmaids!

Here’s a fun slideshow recapping Bob and Jean’s beautiful wedding day, timed to the song they shared their first dance together, Ed Sheeran‘s Thinking Out Loud. The slideshow is in FLASH, so you need to watch this on a laptop or computer (Blame Steve Jobs for not allowing it to be viewed on your iPhone!)

Congratulations Bob and Jean! I’m so happy for you!!
