What can I tell you about Suzanne & Paul besides, well, they are awesome. They are the kind of people that I would sit down and have a beer with, or maybe a glass of wine if we were feeling fancy, and just chat. We would tell funny stories and jokes and then I would mention that ‘HEY! Your initials are S&P. Salt & Pepper. No wonder you are perfect together!’ And they would laugh and sip their drink and then look into one another’s eyes and nod slightly, because yeah, it’s true. They are perfect together.And did I mention that they love winter? Especially a nice snowy Vermont winter? And of course the perfect date for the perfect couple that loves winter to get married on is 1.1.11!
The ceremony and reception took place at The Ponds at Bolton Valley Resort: a beautiful location early-spring, mid-summer, late-fall, or in this case, dead of winter.The ceremony took place outdoors and thanks to the wonderful staff at The Ponds, who kept the site clear of snow, it was beautiful. And despite the super mild winter temperatures and impending rain, the day was perfect and the party memorable.

Just Weddings did a beautiful job with all of the flower arrangements. I loved the inclusion of the pine cone in the boutonnieres!
Suzanne, you are beautiful. End of story.
Suzanne & Paul chose to do a first look so that we could take most of their pictures before their ceremony, which took place at sunset. It is always such a fun moment to observe and capture! Thank you Paul.

And speaking of so cute, look at these three!
Time to get married!
During the ceremony the parents and S&P put logs on the fire to signify two families becoming one. It was a wonderful symbol, although the smoke had S&P choked up at times….or at least that is what they blamed it on.
