Justin and Karen’s Wedding

Karen and Justin were married on the Sunday, the second of a 3-wedding weekend for me! Saturday’s wedding (see Kristin and David) fell on one of the hottest days of the summer, so I was sure that Sunday would be more of the same. Wrong. It was a glorious day–sunny, but much cooler , with a light breeze that was made to order for a late July wedding. The celebration took place at The Essex, one of my favorite venues in Chittenden County and every detail was perfect.

From the fun Beach-themed place settings to the cupcake table to the well choreographed “Ra-Ra-Football Team entrance” by the wedding party (ending with a human tunnel for the bridal couple to storm through into the reception), this was one fun wedding and a very festive group! Jim Provost of Moonlight Entertainment kept everyone moving throughout the night, My “Fun Framed Fotos” Booth was a huge hit (with guests using the props as much on the dance floor as in the booth!) and the evening ended with the ever-popular lighting of sparklers out on the patio.

Karen and Justin both have such enormous spirit, a sense of adventure and huge family loyalty. I look forward to seeing them many times in the years to come, just to soak up some of that energy and loving devotion from being near them. Congratulations, you two!


Below is the “Fun FRamed Fotos” Booth in action. If you want to see ALL of the goofy fotos from the booth, visit the album on my Facebook Page:
