Stephanie and Conrad are Brooklyn residents who decided to partake in a growing family tradition: to get married in Conrad's grandfather's back yard. With a clear stream, giant pines, and wide open hills facing the mountains, this secluded spot in Vermont is definitely a family treasure. We felt really lucky to be welcomed there and to be chosen to capture this spectacular event.
Conrad and Stephanie had no specific theme other than a fun day outside with great views, great food, and great people. Stephanie's gorgeous and playful dress (with a pop of light pink!) was custom made by her friend Betsy from Betsy Wise Bridal. It truly reflected her carefree spirit, and served as the perfect compliment to the look of uncontainable joy and excitement that persisted on her face throughout the day.
We kept busy capturing so many meaningful traditions and playful personal touches, like the "otters in love" cake topper, "build your own popcorn" station, riddles, and bubble-blowing area to entertain guests. After a delicious fresh dinner of BBQ and local comfort food, Conrad's grandfather surprised us by performing a song. As the day turned into night they started up the bonfire and set off fireworks across the hill.
Congratulations to Steph, Conrad, and your wonderful families!
