Vermont Wedding: Sue & Jeff, Essex, Vermont

Having planned and pulled off a private home wedding for my own wedding, I can understand and relate to all the work and planning that goes into things. There are so many extra details that need attending too, but in the end when everything comes together, all of the extra work and attention was worth it because the location has such meaning!

Sue & Jeff were married at Jeff’s dad’s home. The property has beautiful flower gardens and landscaping thanks to Jeff’s dad’s wife and on a good day there is a beautiful view of Mount Mansfield. Getting to wedding day took a few mishaps and glitches though, such as having to replace the whole driveway after heavy rain washed it out and having to replace all the garden mulch when rain washed the mulch away. But once wedding day came, things came together. 🙂 Despite the ever present fog and hint of rain, Sue & Jeff were married amongst their family and friends in the beautiful gardens and celebrated well into the night enjoying every moment! The beautiful summer colors they chose for their decorations and flowers added the pop of color that they gray skies denied us and the sturdy tent protected the guests from getting wet and cold.

Congratulations again Sue & Jeff! It was such a pleasure to get to know you both. 🙂 Enjoy a selection of my favorite images from the day and check out the slide show below. All the best, Kathleen

I love the age/photo table numbers! Guests really enjoy them too. 🙂

Custom beverage glass favors for guests to use throughout the night and take home later. They read, “Vows are done, now let’s have some fun!”

Sue wore her mom’s garter.

Maggie & Lydia were such good girls doing their job as ring bearers!


After the ceremony Sue & Jeff snuck out the back and made a surprise entrance to the reception with Jeff’s dad at the wheel!

Lot’s of local goodies!

Jeff is a hot air balloon pilot (yes, how awesome is that?!) and another pilot friend gave him the cork balloon. I thought it was perfect for the rings and super adorable!

Candy table for dessert!

Candy sushi?! Awesome!

Jeff created a super sweet slideshow to surprise Sue with. Everyone enjoyed it immensely!
