Gorgeous Views | All Souls Interfaith Gathering Wedding | Shelburne Vermont

    It’s hard to believe that wedding season is just around the corner…especially since spring seems to be returning very reluctantly. I can’t wait to kick things off at The Essex Resort at the end of May! Before we get there, however, it’s time to finish posting my weddings from last season.

    It was a spectacular day for this All Souls Interfaith Gathering wedding in Shelburne, Vermont. A crisp, clear day warmed by the late September sun and perfect for taking advantage of the sweeping Lake Champlain views at the venue.

    I first visited the couple at the Hilton Hotel in Burlington where they were getting ready. While waiting for the bride to finish hair and makeup at Indigo Salon just down the street I took a peek and some shots of her details. I loved all the gold accents. The mother of the groom showed me her necklace which was given to her by the groom’s grandmother who had passed away. It was a touching way to remember her in spirit. The groom also had a beautiful pair of simply monogrammed cufflinks. The bride arrived with enough time to spare for some bubbly celebration before heading to the venue.

    The day had the feel of summer but with a hint of fall. My favorite time of year! The decor and rentals were provided by the always amazing Vermont Tent Company. The birch tree wedding cake came from the talented Birchgrove Bakery.

    The couple opted for a first look in order to maximize their time with their guests during the day and we found this perfect secluded spot under an apple tree at the end of a wooded path for their rendezvous. After a few nice quiet moments, we checked several family photos off their group portrait list.

    The ceremony was held in the venue’s stunning sanctuary. Look at that view! Between the view and the incredible architecture of the sanctuary it would be hard not to feel inspired and uplifted.

    Post ceremony I had time to meander with the couple around the All Souls property for couple portraits. All of the mature maple trees provide beautiful shade which is best the light. Some of these spots may look familiar from the couple’s engagement shoot from the fall before. The bride had a classically beautiful look. Her bright gem-toned bouquet as well as the rest of the florals were from A Schoolhouse Garden. One of my favorite shots of the two was a candid moment as they walked back to the car to head to cocktail hour.

    Back at cocktail hour the guests were enjoying the stunning day with drinks provided by Fluid Bar Service and lawn games. The late day sun was warm and cast such lovely shadows. Heartfelt toasts were spoken on the lawn in the amazing light. I’m definitely craving a little bit of the sunshine from these shots right about now.

    I’m not sure I can say enough about both the presentation and variety of tasty treats that made the rounds from Let’s Pretend Catering. The couple chose to offer small passed plates in lieu of a seated meal and while that may sound like a small amount of food for guests it was an incredible variety and it never stopped coming. I think everyone was more than satisfied!

    The light only grew more amazing as the evening progressed including the sunset over the Adirondacks. Once the sun set the reception was lit by the warm glow of s’mores campfires, tree hung lanterns and the stars. The couple shared their first dance which finally lured guests inside. After that music from DJ Luis Calderin lit up the dance floor.

    I hope you enjoyed soaking in the beauty of this day! Congratulations to the lucky couple!
