When Jen messaged me saying she wanted to plan a 30th birthday photoshoot I knew we were in for a fun time! Glitter, tulle, prosecco, cake, balloons, oh and that tiny crown... you can't not love everything about this shoot!
It was December and -10 degrees in Vermont when Annaliese and I went to Pink Colony in Stowe Vermont for a Lilly Pulitzer photoshoot. Pink Colony is Vermont's only Lilly Pulitzer signature store and If you have the winter blues and need some shopping therapy this is THE place to go! Surrounded by beautiful bright colors and warm air we could almost forget the outside temperatures and pretend we were on a tiny tropical vacation!
I am so excited to share Mary Jane and Mark's beautiful July wedding with you today! Mary Jane got dressed in her childhood bedroom in Essex Vermont with help from her Mother and her Maid of Honor. After tearful first looks with where Father and Bridesmaids it was off to Holy Family Catholic Church for the ceremony. Mary Jane and Mark exited the church to could of bubbles blown by their wedding party and family! We took some family photos at the church and then Mary Jane, Mark and the wedding party went to the waterfront for the rest. The sun was crazy bright and hot coming off the water so we took a combination of photos in the shade and down by the water before stopping for creemees on the way to the reception! The reception was full of their closest friends and family, many of which had traveled to be there, and they danced the night away to the fantastic music of the Phil Abair Band.
Wow, what a summer it has been! After this crazy summer and fall, during which shooting and editing consumed all my time, and kept me from my usual blogging, I am back at it! So, get ready for some beautiful, sunny, warm summer scenes!
To start us back up, let me tell you a little about Annaliese! She called me last winter from Charlotte, North Carolina. She is a blogger, and was getting ready to make the move to Vermont to pursue her career in Broadcast Journalism! We started our first shoot on Church Street in downtown Burlington and ended on top of a parking garage!
