Married In Vermont Chris & Nikki, Red Clover Inn, Mendon, VT

Warm and cozy is a great way to describe Chris & Nikki’s wedding day. Yes, it was a typical chilly Winter day in Vermont and there were a few goosebumps, but between the roaring fireplaces, the cozy barn, beautiful scarves & mittens, the intimate setting, and a beyond fabulous custom coat, the day was perfectly warm and cozy. The Red Clover Inn blew the socks off all the guests with their amazing 5-course meal and a trio of talented musicians entertained with beautiful music throughout the evening. It was a wonderful kick-off to the 2015 wedding season!

Congratulations Chris & Nikki! It has been a real joy to get to know you both over the past few months. Your playful natures, beautiful love, and thoughtful organization always put a smile on my face. Thank you for choosing me!

Enjoy a few of my favorite images from Chris & Nikki’s wedding day.

 Chris helped Nikki get ready. It was really sweet and a definite change from the norm.

Per a special request I dusted off my medium format film camera to play with some film! Unlike digital it definitely took a little time to pause, meter light, compose in reverse, manual focus and then actually take the picture, but I am pleased with the results.:)Film is and always will be so delicious!

The barn at Red Clover Inn is really nice for a smaller wedding ceremony. They had a heater to keep is nice and toasty.

It was such fun watching the kitchen at Red Clover Inn whip out these amazing dishes! They do chef wine pairing dinners which I definitely need to check out!

The snow started falling just as dinner started. Luckily all of the guests were staying onsite or nearby because the roads became messier as the night went on. It did make for a beautiful portrait though! Winter romance at its finest.

Congratulations Chris & Nikki! You two are tops in my book.:)To enjoy more of Chris & Nikki’s wedding day, check out their slideshow below.:) Be sure to leave them some love in the comments section below. Couples love seeing who has checked out their wedding feature!

Thank you to the awesome team of vendors, family, and friends that helped to make Chris & Nikki’s wedding day picture perfect!!

2014 Year in Review with North Photography

As we prepare to welcome in 2015, I want to take a moment to extend a special thank you all of the couples, families, professionals, and businesses I had the opportunity to work with in 2014. Without each of you, I would not have a purpose in the photography world.:)

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to be witness to and capture some of your beautiful moments in 2014. It is an honor, a pleasure, and a joy.

Here’s to another beautiful year ahead!

December 30, 2014 - 10:04 am

Suz - What beautiful photos! What a talent you are! I love that the couple who had their engagement session with the Christmas trees now have a baby and did a retake in the same spot! I think we need to have a reshoot with you in our woods and our babes in the fall of 2015! xoxo and Happy New Year Kaht — you know I think of you always, but especially this time of year — 4 years on Thursday :)

Married in Vermont: Amy & Mike, Mountain View Farm, E. Burke, VT

Amy & Mike were married on this amazing fall day at Mountain View Farm in East Burke. It was unseasonably warm, but that just made for a perfect outdoor ceremony, amazing portraits, a fun cocktail hour in the amazing sunset and allowed the kiddos to run and play on the beautiful lawns. There were so many beautiful moments that I had a hard time narrowing things down for this post, but since this is the last wedding of 2014 to be featured, I figured I would make it a nice long one.;)Enjoy the story! xoxo Kathleen

A little de-linting help from Mike’s son.:)

The barn was decorated SO beautifully! I just loved all of the details and autumn decorations.

Grandmother <3

Mike’s daughter Evie had the idea for this next photo and everyone was happy to oblige her! Amy also loves the endless starry skies in Vermont so I made sure to include those just for her.;)

Married in Vermont: Andrea & Evan, Derby Pond Barn, Derby, VT

Andrea & Evan’s wedding took place at one of the prettiest places in Vermont. The Derby Pond Barn in Derby, Vermont is a beautiful oasis set right on Lake Derby. The barn itself is reclaimed from another Vermont barn and rebuilt onsite! The perfect setting for two amazing people to start their life together. The day started out very windy but turned into such a perfect Autumn day! Enjoy some of my favorites below and I’ll let the photos tell you the rest of the story.:)xoxo Kathleen

I felt like I was walking through a photo shoot set-up because the details were all so perfect and amazing!

Autumn color is by far my favorite.:)

So beautiful Andrea!

Andrea & Evan opted to do a First Look before their ceremony so that they could relieve wedding day jitters and do some family pictures and wedding party portraits!

TBT Married in Vermont:Karina & Christopher, Essex Inn, Vermont

Almost 1 year ago this charming face decided to jump the gun and arrive 6 weeks ahead of schedule. Surprise!

Major editing and orders were completed so that clients had their images and albums, however blogging of images from the 2013 wedding season was put on the back burner so that I could focus on my new role as ‘Mama’. Now that 2014 weddings are well underway and being featured on the blog, I wanted to take the opportunity and embrace “Throwback Thursday” by highlighting my wonderful couples from last year.  Enjoy this weeks Throwback Thursday Wedding Edition! Be well, Kathleen

Karina & Christopher were married on a beautiful Fall day! Everything was just perfect after months of planning. Karina was working abroad leading up to their wedding and I was impressed with how she accomplished everything from overseas! Enjoy some of my favorites below from their amazing day. xoxo Kathleen

Karina & Christopher decided to do a First Look before their ceremony in order to take advantage of doing portraits before and getting to visit with guests after the ceremony.:)

I sure do LOVE fall colors!!

Robert captured this of me doing the following portraits. Brennan arrived 2 days later!

*LOVE*

Karina’s dad made the table numbers. Each bird was handmade with real feathers! Aren’t they amazing?!

Congratulations again Karina & Christopher! And I hope you have a beautiful first anniversary together.:)

Married in Vermont: Kathleen & Lewis, Private Home, Vermont

 Kathleen & Lewis were married on an amazing late Summer day at Kathleen’s beautiful family home. Everything about their wedding was just perfection from the colorful details to the sweet ceremony to the family style dinner to the rockin’ rock band! Not to mention the amazing wedding party and awesome couple themselves!:)I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story. Enjoy!! xoxo Kathleen 

Kathleen wore her mom’s wedding gown. It was really just perfect on her!

Sisters!

And sweet Gussie.:)

A little funny story for you. I was photographing various details and saw these stamped name cards at each place. I assumed the stamp indicted which meal the guest was receiving: beef, chicken, pork or rabbit (fancy!). Well…

Then I saw an owl, a cat, and a mouse…Interesting menu items! Turns out the stamps were only decorative.:)
