This beautiful Vermont wedding sent us up to Woodstock, VT on Friday night to capture the rehearsal at the beautiful Billings Farm. We were meeting Callie and Mike for the first time, since they found us online and we had online spoken over the phone! We couldn’t wait to meet the incredibly nice couple we had spoken to for the last couple months.Callie and Mike were even sweeter in person than we could have imagined and after meeting them, their families, and their wedding party it was clear that their Vermont wedding was going to be incredibly fun and filled with laughter and love!The ceremony location, Billings Farm, was absolutely stunning! The couple was planning to get married surrounded by friends and family with the Green Mountains behind them, in front of the rolling hills of the horse pastures and the ever-glowing fields of corn. The weather was gorgeous and we couldn’t wait to film the ceremony the next day.
After the rehearsal was finished, we all headed to the Longtrail Brewery, where they had rented the entire restaurant for their rehearsal dinner. Since Mike and Callie are from Massachusetts, this was a destination wedding, which meant that many people came from out of town to celebrate with them, and their rehearsal dinner was packed with friends and family getting ready to celebrate their marriage. There were toasts, outdoor games, good food and lots of laughter. We headed out while the celebration was still in full swing, and got a good night’s rest before the big day tomorrow.In the morning, we headed over to the Woodstock Inn where Mike and Callie would be getting ready. We found Mike and the guys hanging around outside, playing bags and enjoying the beautiful day. Callie and her girls were inside the Inn, getting hair and makeup done and listening to some Taylor Swift pandora radio. Everyone was all smiles and really enjoying each special moment of their Vermont wedding. It was clear that everyone was super excited the big day was here!
After the girls and guys were all dressed and ready to go, we headed to a barn across the street for the first look. Mike and Callie shared a private moment and the look on Mike’s face when he sees his soon-to-be-wife all dressed up was just priceless. We took some photos with the whole wedding party and then headed over to Billings Farm for the main event!This Vermont wedding ceremony was simply beautiful. Callie was just stunning in her dress, but nothing would outshine her glowing smile as she walked down the aisle to her groom. Mike and Callie exchanged vows and included beautiful readings from Mike’s little cousin and Callie’s happily married Aunt and Uncle. The ceremony chairs we decorated with quotes from Mike and Callie’s elementary school students’ advice on what love is. Every detail was just as precious as the next and it truly reflected their love and devotion to one another.After the ceremony, Rhiannon stayed with Mike and Callie and their photographers as they captured some intimate moments with the recently announced “Mr and Mrs. Aliberte! After watching these two love birds walk around the gorgeous grounds at Billings Farm, we watched them discover the adorably decorated car waiting to transport them to the reception at the Woodstock Inn.On the way back to the Inn, we stopped at the adorable covered bridge in town for some epic photos and video footage. Then it was time to capture the end of cocktail hour before lining up for introductions. The gorgeous white tent was set up in the back garden and was filled with beautiful flowers and decor all outlined and put together by Callie over the last 8 plus months. What a true blissful vision!! The happy couple and their wedding party were announced into the tent and then graced the dance floor for a first dance, followed by sweet toasts from Callie’s parents, sister and Mike’s brother.After dinner the dance floor opened up with some explosive fun that their band kicked off. Everyone was on the dance floor and having an absolute blast. It was a wedding and party for the ages! Callie and Mike, your happiness was so evident and your honest and sweet love was such a joy to be around. Thank you for letting us capture all the amazing moments from your Vermont wedding and we cannot wait to hear of the joys and laughter your married life will bring. Congratulations and cheers to love and life long memories!
