anne and adam (and louis) | the wedding

First of all, get comfortable. This is going to take a moment (and apologies to my friend B who thinks I blog too many images [and who is usually right]… I couldn’t help it in this case. I tried.)

I just love Anne and Adam. From the first time I spoke with Anne, and she said that their vision was “an overgrown dinner party”, I knew I was in. And then their plan came together LIKE I NEVER COULD HAVE IMAGINED. Perfect weather. An unbelievable team. DIY details that I can’t even say enough amazing things about. Louis, the dog. A perfect wedding party. Backdrops that I couldn’t love more. And time. Just a lot of time. Plenty of time. And, voilĂ … an overgrown dinner party and a photographer’s dream come true.

Anne’s family lake house couldn’t have been a better setting for the PERFECT day. The ladies were right at home, while the gentlemen got ready next door. Easy peasy, friends. It was a dream.

It’s perfection. And the details? They just keep coming.

Next, it was off to Bonnyville Mills, a gorgeous spot in Middlebury should you ever find yourself up that way… a charming place for photos.

Then, they got on board a boat and sailed right on over. I love this wedding.
