You may recall Karen + Alex
from their fabulous e-session last autumn. It was a perfect autumn day and they lucked out with the weather on their wedding day as well. They scheduled plenty of time for photos, so it was very relaxed and fun day!
Karen + Alex are so completely crazy in love and their friends and family are some of the nicest people imaginable, so it was a true honor to be a part of their celebration!
And now for the photos....
Andy met up with Karen and her girls in Burlington to capture some of the getting ready moments.
Andy grabbed this great shot of Alex and his brother getting ready at the Heart of the Village Inn
I started the day at Karen's parents' home. Karen looked absolutely stunning in her dress!
The handsome guys.
Adorning the bouquet with a beautiful brooch.
Karen + Alex chose to see each other before the ceremony. So we made a plan to meet up at the Shelburne Museum
for some photos. Karen's sister was so sweet as she made sure the dress didn't drag as we walked around the grounds in search of fun backdrops.
The first look....
There was no shortage of gorgeous spots for some relaxed portraits.
Andy caught this one. I love it!
We met the family and wedding party back at the Heart of the Village Inn to photograph the groups. We had some extra time for some fun ones too!
It was finally time for the ceremony. Here, Alex waits for the his cue to go inside.
A couple of my favorite ceremony moments...
This is my favorite image of the day...it melts my heart.
Karen had her heart set on a photo of the wedding party in front of the covered bridge. We like making wishes come true. :)
Karen was inspired to do these cute little drink tags from a wedding she saw here on the blog last summer. So fun!!
I loved Karen's colors! Here are a handful of details from the day....
I've never seen the Old Lantern look more beautiful than at Karen + Alex's wedding!!
A very romantic first dance.
The toasts were full of emotion!
I love this!
