One of my favorite things about my bigger weddings is seeing how many people I have seen before at a wedding …. I call them threads. Even though I live in a not so big town in Vermont, I still get a little note of happiness when I see a guest from another wedding. Nothing was more true for Carrie & Jean Carlo’s wedding last month. You see, just a few years earlier (although I’m pretty sure it felt like merely months) I had the incredible opportunity of shooting Carrie’s sister Emily’s wedding. I was incredibly honored to be asked back into this family for another marriage ….. their family is so full of love and genuine happiness that after an 8 hour day I felt more refreshed and rejuvenated than most night’s sleep seem to give. I also had a blast watching these guests dance (they can dance for real!) …. and was treated to a demonstration that Bohemian Rhapsody can in fact be a dance song!
Here are a few of my favorite shots throughout the day (we had a jolly fellow join us for a shot of the wedding party!). Carrie honored her mother by wearing her veil, and a grandfather who was unable to make the trip from Europe by having his tau tied into her bouquet. The ceremony took place at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Springfield, VT with the reception following at the VFW. We also made a side trip to the Hartness House for some extra photos because the weather wasn’t particularly cooperative. Woodbury Florist provided the gorgeous flowers with Shaw’s baking the wedding cake.
