An Intimate Vermont Wedding on Grand Isle: Jamie & Jordan

Often my favorite weddings to capture are those with only a handful of guests, a private residence and a thoughtful and creative approach to decor and atmosphere.  Jaime and Jordan got married at a family property on Grand Isle, Vermont, over looking the beautiful Lake Champlain in August.  Photographers love these small intimate settings because it offers something unique and special you may not always find at a bigger, venue-hosted event.  The bride and groom designed most of their own decor, flowers, settings, and favors.  Plus, the smaller guest list usually means a more casual and personal experience for everyone present.  I’ve been a guest at weddings like this myself and it’s so nice to have more time with the bride and groom instead of a few minutes with them at a huge gathering when their time is divided across several hundred guests.  As the photographer at a wedding like this, I found many more real moments between the guests and bride and groom, it was a pleasure and honor to be present.

The walk down the aisle with Dad, which in this case was a walk down to the water from the back yard!  So perfect.

Jamie’s family’s property was complete with several acres of farm land in the front, with the lake in back.  It made for a great place to take sunset photos.
