I loved every single thing about this wedding. It was SO pretty!!! Two people who are both so kind and welcoming had a classy and classic destination wedding in the mountains of Vermont. Hailing from NYC, they brought their favorite people with them to this gorgeous setting. We were so glad to be there too!
The ladies took a very un-rushed and casual approach to the day, getting ready, dancing, laughing, and cheer-sing the morning away. I can’t speak for the guys but I know it felt like a sleepover/slumber party in the ladies getting ready area. When we were ready to go we headed to the church and Amanda walked straight down the aisle in a matter of moments. Ian was waiting right there with his cute smile on his face. There was a collective gasp when she walked in… I mean… LOOK at her, and that DRESS!!! They even had a Bishop there to help in the ceremony, her great uncle Monseor Juan Antonio Flores (who sadly passed away mere days after the wedding).
After the ceremony, we headed into the Vermont wilds to take family photos, bridal party photos, and photos of just the two of them. It was calm and quiet and just the way we like to do it. No distractions, just us, them, and a gorgeous backdrop, (I know that makes every photographer jealous, myself included). Once we had the images that we loved, we all headed back to Sugarbush for a party of dancing dancing dancing!!

Pat and Amanda… the couple we were late toÂ theirÂ 6:00am engagement session for… sigh. Answering the phone that morning in my pajamas sent my blood to run cold. We felt so bad we believed they would hate us forever. On the contrary, Pat and Amanda are gracious, forgiving, and just too in love to worry about that kind of thing. I can assure you were were there the night BEFOREÂ theirÂ wedding.
God was blessing this day with some sprinkles and best of all, a majestic overcast sky. It was was ridiculously beautiful in Vermont that weekend, and it was hard not to believe it was that way just for the wedding of Pat and Amanda. As you will see, the landscape was over the top lovely and the couple was rivaling that with their looks. Despite a hot church with no a/c, the ceremony was respectful and beautiful. We went up to the top of a mountain for the portraits and it was worth the drive, let me tell you. Afterwards we all headed to their reception at the Sugarbush Resort, where we danced the night away.
