Lindsey & David – an intimate / off-beat wedding – Vermont

I travelled all the way up to Vermont for Lindsey & David’s wedding – an intimate event with just their closest friends and family members. Some had traveled from Ireland to be there. And yes, with Irish guests, there was a folk band and a lot of singing and dancing.

Wilmington in Vermont is a quaint town with all kinds of interesting shops on the main street. However, their wedding day was  the day after an intense snow blizzard which made the roads rough going with all the snow and ice. The intensely low temperatures also meant that we only worked inside. So you may well wonder what the weather has to do with their wedding.

The heating in original reception venue turned out to be faulty. With temperatures dropping fast in the evening and guests (and the band) shivering, Lindsey’s dad scrambled around to find an alternative venue. With all the guests relocated to the much more cosy White House In up the road, the party continued. And the reason I mention all this is that even with Lindsey and David taking so much care in personally decorating their original reception venue – (check out some of the photo of the details) – all this uprooting didn’t break their stride and the couple continued having a great time at their wedding. Just as it should be.

The wedding reception decor was appropriate for this down-to-earth, intimate location. Lindsey had checked out the local antique flea markets. They went there every weekend during summer and fall and carefully selected every single decoration. Lindsey said how they even got the plates and bowls there, all mis-matching.

Lindsey and David, congratulations and best wishes!
