My first contact with Jessica was on October 21, 2018. Her and Brian were planning for their May 2020 wedding at a beautiful wedding venue in Maine. Sweet! Fast forward a few months and she gets word that their venue had been sold and was cancelling all of the 2020 wedding season…this was BEFORE COVID-19 was even a word in this world. Bummer.
So they took action and found another beautiful venue, The Mountain Top Inn, in the classic Vermont town of Chittenden. I had photographed at the Mountain Top Inn about 6 years prior and was so excited to go back! Done and done- second wedding date had been set for June of 2020. Sweet!
Then, of course, a global pandemic hit and changed the course of everyone and everything in 2020. Jessica and Brian, AGAIN, had to deal with a curveball and change their wedding plans for the second time. Bummer.
However, they decided to have a small ceremony despite all the chaos and locked in their marriage. Sweet!
Fast forward to this past week- Jess and Brian were finally able to celebrate with their amazing friends and beautiful family. It was perfectly warm and sunny- Vermont did not disappoint! It was so lovely to be back at the Mountain Top Inn, especially with this crew. The bridesmaids were so welcoming and beautiful and the guys were fun, goofy and ready to party!
Jess and Brian had some ups and downs in their wedding planning process, but they handled it like champs. As their two amazing officiants made them swear they would be together “when life is sweet and when it’s a bummer” I couldn’t help think that they are going to be able to hold strong through all the storms life throws their way. I hope the bummer moments are few and far between, but if a bummer moment does roll in Jess and Brian will stand tall and face it hand in hand with their huge love for each other.
Congratulations guys… I hope you enjoy a sweet, sweet life together!
