John and Jessica are two of the nicest, most sincere and sweetest people that we have had the pleasure of working with. There were so many elements about this Vermont wedding that we just loved! From Jessica’s amazing dress to all of the rustic details it was a destination wedding dream come true. Shooting at the Inn at Manchester was a first for us this season but we couldn’t have been any more excited! The grounds at the Inn at Manchester are just stunning and adapted to so many perfect backgrounds for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. SPEAKING of Ceremony I have to say what a magical service that was! Set in the lower tree grove – John and Jessica looked angelic while professing their love and promises to one another. There wasn’t a dry eye in attendance (and yes that includes me). The current of connection and deep emotion ran through everyone all day. There were many wonderful toasts, readings, and special moments that one couldn’t walk away with out feeling little lighter! We had such an amazing time at the Inn at Manchester and can not be happier for this amazing couple!
Nestled in the Vermont Valley is this little gem! The Inn at Manchester!

We are dying over the amazing details on Jessica’s Dress! So organic and beautiful!
That is a glowing bride for sure!
She is just stunning and looked amazing in her dress!
How great are John’s shoes?
This was hands down one of the best first looks. ever.
So many people wonder why we love a first look and this reaction will tell you everything (plus you can get a ton of photos done prior to your ceremony, which is always a bonus!)
