Wedding: Anne & Johnmark

Late June in Vermont is really when the summer takes off and produces days of lush vegetation, warm breezes, and flowers on every hillside.  Anne and Johnmark got married on such a day this year.  They were so thoughtful on each detail of this gorgeous day as you’ll see below.  The venue was Edson Hill Manor, in Stowe, Vermont.  For me, as a Vermont photographer I’ve seen and shot at several bed and breakfast establishments, hotels, country inns and other venues.  However, Edson Hill Manor has the feel of a retreat, or some place where you might travel too to unplug from the world and blend in among the horses, rustic architecture and scenic beauty.  Were I not fully engaged in capturing this lively group of family and friends I might have wandered off into the country side with my camera, clicking away at any and all things!  The images below give just a flavor of the incredible day Anne & Johnmark had.

A truly stolen moment here,… just before we left for the venue, her look says it all.

me: “hey Anne, wanna walk outside, through the grass with your dress, and then get dangerously close to falling into a pond?”  Anne: “Sure!”

The processional started from the hill above the ceremony, with Anne and her dad starting at the bottom of the steps.  So great.

Halfway through the reception it started to POUR! I mean, big, loud, fast rain that just didn’t quit.  Water crept onto the dance floor.
No one batted an eye and dancing continued unhindered!
