ceremony & reception: Hawk Mountain Resort, Plymouth VT
flowers: Ellen Snyder Floral Design
You may remember the recent engagement session I posted of Ryan and Breanne, shot in Burlington in the midst of pouring rain. From that shoot I knew this couple would be up for anything. But I was still happy that they got a break from the weather for their wedding day at the Hawk Mountain Resort in Plymouth, Vermont. This was my first visit to “the Hawk” and it was a very romantic, intimate setting.
The day started as I went to see the girls. I spent a few moments capturing some of the day’s details, but was quickly diverted by the pre-wedding dance party going on.
Jason visited the guys who in contrast were very coolly playing pool. They received some intel that the girls were having quite the time so they were worried that they needed to step it up.
Ryan and Breanne opted for a first look prior to the ceremony and after kicking out some sneak-peeking family members they had a nice quiet reveal to themselves in this secluded alcove near the bridal suite. After, we wandered the grounds for a bit to grab some sweet couple shots. It was fun to capture all of their expressive reactions.
The Hawk has a perfect wooded walking bridge for a nice long procession to the ceremony. The light is soft and pretty. Breanne was emotional as she made her way down the aisle.I love to see real emotions during the ceremony.
After the ceremony, the bridge was the perfect spot for one last wedding party portrait and a couple more of the couple.
The tent and decor were very romantically decorated. The flowers by Ellen Snyder Floral Design were so bright and beautiful. Once the real dancing started there weren’t many more quiet moments the rest of the evening. There were a couple of little guys who provided me with some funny dancing shots. One kid demonstrated his break dancing skills. The bride’s brother hopped up on stage to belt out a tune.
Congratulations to Ryan and Breanne. I’m so happy that the day turned out so perfectly for such a deserving couple.
