In the client department, we feel like we are winning. Nothing makes this job more fun than the people we get to work with. It's truly our joy to capture our couple's love stories, and Becca and Dan's Hubbell Homestead Wedding in Vermont is no exception. Chuck has been busy on Summer Street this fall, and he was privileged to capture Becca and Dan's wedding on a perfect September day. Matt and I enjoyed shooting at Hubbell in the past, so it's always fun to see how Chuck will capture the same space. Becca and Dan's wedding did not disappoint, where some of our favorite highlights included family contributions such as the hand made chuppah that Dan's family lovingly crafted with vines over a period of months. Their families also crafted the woodland centerpieces, so there was some serious talent running through their veins. We're obsessed with their sun drenched portraits, and think their newlywed glow is just about as beautiful as Chuck's handiwork behind the camera. Becca and Dan, we are so happy for you guys and know you deserve all the joy in the world. Congratulations!
Ashley and Jamie are beautiful souls. They are gentle, well-spoken, heart-felt and magnificent. Truly. It has been an extreme honor getting to know them during this time of their lives and we are happy to call them new friends. From the beginning of their wedding planning they wanted a wedding day experience that represented their values and taste as well as an enjoyable weekend getaway for their guests. In fact, I think their day could be categorized as part of the "The Slow Wedding Movement" (you know, as compared to The Slow Food Movement" and yes, I just made that up.) They selected The 1768 Hubbell Homestad in Bennington, Vermont as the backdrop to their big day and choose to have a Quaker Ceremony on a high hill overlooking the mountains where guests are asked to bring their thoughts, text, poems and encouragement to contribute as part of the ceremony. It was beautiful. I cried. Three times in fact. After the ceremony we took full advantage of the stunning grounds at the Homestead to grab some photos of Ashley and Jamie as freshly coined husband and wife. They were beaming in their newlywed glow, which made our job a cinch. The evening continued down at the Homestead under a clear night sky and more happy toasts to the couple. We enjoyed watching *all* of the wedding guests boogie down (especially the 50+ crowd) and drove the 3 hour drive back to Boston with a full heart and smile on our face. Ashley and Jamie, we couldn't be more grateful for you in our lives. Congratulations!!
