Boston natives Jonathan and Kendall reached out to me in early September and when we connected on the phone I could tell they were giddy with excitement.
“We’re planning an adventure elopement!”
After a stressful year of wedding planning (and re-planning), the couple wanted to celebrate in a way that was most meaningful to them, in a special place that had always held fond memories for the two of them.
Visitors come to Stowe all year round for hiking, cider donuts, and skiing…
…but the quaint Vermont town is most popular in the late summer and early fall, when the mountains boast glowing colors and the sunsets cast a magical glow.
Kendall and Jonathan’s Stowe mountain elopement was just that – magical. The stunning bride, donned in a Calla Blanche tulle skirt gown, caught her husband-to-be wiping away tears of joy as she walked towards him, veil flowing graciously behind her. As if walking on top of the world, the couple said their vows with the Vermont Green Mountains resting behind them, the warm September sun low in the sky.
An adventure mountain elopement isn’t complete without a celebration to follow!
After popping a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and hopping on a golf cart to race down the mountain before sunset, the newlyweds made their way down to the Stowe Lodge at Spruce Peak for hordevours and dessert (skipping the cake, these two get down with their favorite pint of Ben & Jerry’s). And what better way to end an incredible evening and celebration with a dance at dusk with the one you love?
I can’t describe how much I loved working with this incredible couple to document the magic of their day. If nothing else, this year has shown us that we can and SHOULD still celebrate love, in whatever way that means most.
