Make your shotgun special

If you want to get married quickly, it should still be special. Anne’s Shotgun Wedding Tips: 1) Get your license, every state is different in their policies. 2) Don’t worry about your rings. Chose something that has meaning rather than cost and save for later. 3) Wear what you want. Dressy or casual, this is your day and you need to enjoy yourself. 4) Shotgun wedding doesn’t mean going without.

Elizabeth & Ford's Lakeside Wedding

"This Basin Harbor wedding was FUN! Elizabeth & Ford worked with Claire L’Esperance for their beautiful and unique flowers that complemented the multi-colored bridesmaids dresses from Alfred Sung. Elizabeth wore her Mother’s dress from 1977 originally purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue – love it! All of the ladies spent the morning at Shear Cuts in Vergennes getting their hair and makeup done with great results! The ceremony was wonderfully and personally officiated by Wendy Bratt who is THE BEST. That evening all the guests rocked out to The Pulse of Boston one of my absolute favorite bands!!"

Jackie & Jono's Autumn Wedding

Middlebury graduates, Jackie & Jono wanted to be in Vermont for their wedding. Rehearsal dinner on the North Dock, their October wedding was planned to the nines. The outdoor ceremony went on with the skys dripping a bit but as they neared the altar a double rainbow appeared over the harbor. We think that meant good luck!

Andrew & Jonathan's Wedding

Andrew & Jonathan had some of the most fun photography we had the pleasure of seeing despite the on again off again rain. Their wedding party was so very fun and willing to try all sorts of great vignettes despite the weather. Jonathans's mom did all the flowers including the cake and charming boutonnieres . Their signature drinks featured VT rhubarb juice from Jonathan's family home. The whole weekend resonated with love and friendship as guests played from Friday to Sunday brunch. North Dock rehearsal dinner, Town Hall ceremony...(rainsite) and Ranger Room reception.
