Both from Rhode Island, Courtney and Reilly fell in love with Vermont, not only recently buying a house in a quiet little Burlington neighborhood, but also centering their wedding around one of their favorite places to hang out with their dog- the Ethan Allen Homestead, which is the coolest (free!!) place to catch a bit of history, go for a run, and explore the wide variety of nature areas that make up the expansive park. They decided to nestle their ceremony in a light-dappled grove of apple trees, inviting their families and a few close friends to witness their marriage, building in a nice big chunk of time before an intimate dinner for us to roam around the property and everyone else to let their dogs out (my favorite detail). Days like this are so wonderful for me as a photographer (especially when the weather and light were as awesome as they were on Saturday), quiet, non-rushed time, and a chance to get to know all the guests as well!
