Craftsbury Pavilion Wedding

DAY 141/365

I should have titled this post "A flatlander Shoots A Country Wedding", but the search engines wouldn't have brought any traffic here, so I decided upon a more appropriate title.
I'm not a professional wedding photographer. I'm just a girl with a camera who likes to take pictures. Sure I have shot a few weddings, but landscapes and nature are my forte......but when Josie called me several months ago and asked me to shoot her wedding, I could not say yes fast enough!

This was such an amazing wedding in every way. These folks know how to do it right.  It was not extravagant and there was nothing artificial about this beautiful celebration. These people are true to who they are and they have their priorities in the right place. This was a day about family. A day about love. A day about simple pleasures and country living.

I started off shooting Josie and the girls at her Mom and Dads house in Barton VT. Can I just say that I love this family????? We have become good friends with them over the years since we bought our vacation home in Vermont. Here's Josie getting ready:

The "Girls"

No fancy high healed shoes for these country girls!

How beautiful is Josie????

Josie's Mom Terri helping with her dress

The flower girl was camera shy, but I was able to sneak a picture. Look at the camo dress. I can't take it!!!!!!

The boys had no problem with me and my camera. Look at the little camo vests. So adorable.

Handsome Logan getting all choked up watching his bride walk down the aisle. So sweet!

Josie's dad Steve in a tender moment with Logan. 

What a gorgeous venue....and the guest were seated on hay bales. Love it!!!!

Josie with her three besties. They are all so beautiful.

Logan with his guys.

My beautiful friend 

Love her eyes

The first dance

Josie and her Dad Steve have a very close relationship. There wasn't a dry eye in the house during this dance.......and the photographer could barely focus with all of my tears. A VERY sweet moment

I always knew I liked Logan, but any boy who cries while dancing with his Mom is a ok in my book. What a great kid he is!

Josie and her Mom Terri. I love these two beautiful women!

Quick dress change for Josie. This was taken as the sun was setting in the hills behind them


Thank you for letting me share this day with you. I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. Don't ever change. You are perfect just the way you are!


  1. Thank you for the beautiful photo's. As you said, they are a beautiful couple and what a beautiful day. As the parents of the Groom we couldn't have asked for more, our son so genuine and pure to himself. You captured so much emotion in every shot. Thanks you.

    1. Hi Amy. Thank you so very much for the response. You have every right to be proud of Logan. He's a wonderful young man, and he and Josie are the sweetest couple.You done good Mom! :-)
