My favorite parts about photographing weddings are the unique touches that couples add to their wedding, making it their own. Brooke and Bobby filled their celebration with reminders of their love of farming, and their ties to family and friends. The couple, who both grew up in Central Vermont, met at Bobby's family's sugarhouse, and were engaged there as well! How fitting that their ceremony take place in a field adjacent to that same sugarhouse, complete with sunny blue skies and a breathtaking view of the mountains. Throughout the day, it was easy to see the respect that Brook and Bobby's friends and family had for them, and how their calm, constant personalities put everyone at ease.
*An antique truck driven by Brooke's brother Buck carted Brooke and her bridesmaids from her house to the wedding site, with the bridesmaids riding on hay bales in the bed of the truck.
*Two calves, wedding gifts to Brooke and Bobby, were tied behind them during their ceremony. Once the wedding was over, they were moved to the reception venue where guests enjoyed meeting them!
*Cory Chapman, the dairy farmer who Brooke works for, gave a wonderful, humorous toast at the reception, comparing Brooke's hard-working, no-nonsense attitude to that of a good dairy cow.
*The thousands of maple sugar candies that Brooke and Bobby made a few weeks before the wedding, handed out as favors to guests.
