Ayla and Andrew's wedding

Ayla and Andrew were married on a beautiful sunny day in September in an intimate backyard wedding in North Ferrisburgh, attended by about 40 close friends and family. It was such a fun and festive day and I arrived just in time to photograph the “first look” for the bride and groom…

The smiles and laughter continued as we added in the bridal party…

The ceremony was lovely and the location by a pond couldn’t have been more idyllic…Since the couple met while rowing for the Dragonheart Vermont, they were married by a fellow rower and were presented with an oar during the ceremony.

After the ceremony, the couple led the procession from the pond back up to the reception…

Now, while I said that it was a backyard wedding, it wasn’t just any backyard- it belonged to Ayla’s uncle, Gardening Extraordinaire Charlie Nardozzi. His breathtaking flower gardens were right near the tent and his floral arrangements graced the dining area…

Delicious food, loving friends and family, toasts, and each other. What more could they want!

Congratulations, Ayla and Andrea and may you paddle on together, both in and out of the water, for years to come!
