Keely and Tom exchanged their vows at the beautiful and historic Shelburne Museum, http://shelburnemuseum.org/visit/about-the-museum/facility-rentals/. Their wedding was packed full of personal details from start to finish, down to the food, which was lovingly prepared by the groom himself.
The happy couple were even able to find a beautiful covered bridge nearby. A perfect place to pose for some pictures and to celebrate their first few moments as Mr. and Mrs. in privacy.
Recycled mason jars and biodegradable utensils and dishes were just a few of their efforts to have a "green" wedding. Simple arrangements of white lisianthus were breathtaking against the view from this Charlotte lakeside residence.
The love shared by Keely and Tom was abundant to all who were there. In fact, this wedding was filled to the brim with love. From the moment Keely and Tom greeted each other for a private moment before the ceremony, to the speech given by the sister of the bride, tears of joy flowed freely at key moments by many. The father of the groom recited an Irish Blessing, and there couldn't have been a dry eye there.
(Love the leg!)
The cake was as delicious as it was beautiful, and was provided by http://www.facebook.com/CrowningConfections?ref=ts.
These pictures do not do this location justice. Picture a family residence, homey with a lot of family history, located right on the edge of Lake Champlain in beautiful Charlotte, VT. Then add in a peaked white tent, standing tall against a gleaming lake with a spectacular sunset. The day progressed seamlessly and the transition from a bright afternoon to a starlit night sky was perfect!
Keely walked down the aisle to Sea of Love performed by Cat Power, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbMeAOTPJzM. This was such a fitting song for this couple and I still melt whenever I hear it.
An Old Irish BlessingMay the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
