July 15th 2017: Allison and Peter's Vermont Barn Wedding
You know those gorgeous summer days you just never want to end? Well to everyone's surprise, we got one this past July on Allison and Peter's wedding day at the Franklin County Field Days barn. It couldn't have been a more perfect day for two of my favorite people to tie the knot and throw a pretty killer party.
I was lucky enough to be a part of documenting the whole day for two of my friends. The couple really wanted for me to be more of a 'guest' then a 'professional,' and working with these two and their closest friends and relatives was so much fun it barely felt like work at all. And I think it really shows in their pictures.
Getting ready always has some chaos to it, but Allison's home was especially packed to the the brim with so many ladies. Despite that, everyone was so excited to be together that the vibe was just fun the entire time. I was pretty astonished at first, but if you know Allison and her family it really shouldn't come as a surprise.
The boys getting ready was a much more somber affair, but I think that mainly had to do with the amount of concentration it took to get those suits done up right.
Allison and Peter decided on doing a first look before the ceremony, so that the reception could be spent with their guests as much as possible.
What's better than the bride and groom dancing down the aisle? The rest of the wedding party dancing down the aisle too.
The reception was such a blast - not only did the lawn games include a giant Jenga set, but there was so.much.food. Two different vendors were on site making pizza and so many kinds of sliders. I may have been too preoccupied eating it all to think to get a picture of it...
One little surprise Allison and Peter set up was having an ice cream truck show up during the reception. It surprised enough people that a few of us thought they were crashing the wedding.
Congratulations Allison and Peter! <3
