It was a warm, lush and sunny summer day at Riverside Farm in Vermont with potential for afternoon thunderstorms. This gorgeous rustic venue complimented Evan and Jess’s down to earth personalities and relaxed preppy style. It was the perfect location for the intimate feel they were going for and provided a stunning backdrop for all the photos. Jess got ready with her bridesmaids in the Bridal suite while Evan and his groomsmen hung out on the other side of the property in the grooms cabin prepping themselves for the day to come. Once everyone was dressed and ready, we gathered for some pre ceremony pics at the barn before heading across the property to start the ceremony. They tied the knot out in the large farm field in front of their closest family and friends. It was a touching ceremony with love, laughter and sweet tears. The cocktail hour included amazing food, drinks and fun activities (like corn hole) while guests socialized and enjoyed the last bit of sunshine before the clouds started to roll in. Guests soon gathered inside the barn for the reception where toasts were shared, a delicious dinner eaten, and some amazing dancing performed! In lieu of the cake cutting, they decided to honor Vermont with a Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream scooping. It was awesomely tasty! I was able to sneak out with the couple for some great evening shots- even though we didn’t have a sunset, we definitely had a great time taking photos!
Words don’t really come close to describing the magical weekend that was had in Vermont at Riverside Farm this last July. So with out further ado, I’m so excited to be able to finally share these images with you! Congratulations Evan & Jess! You two are so incredible and gorgeous from the inside out. I feel so lucky to have met you and to now have you as friends for life! May you have an amazing future together and thank you for letting us capture your incredible weekend!!
