About Emilie @ Emilie Inc. Photography

Cathleen and Jeff brought their black lab puppy, Jackson, to our initial meeting and I immediately knew we’d get along just fine.

Jeff proposed in a snowstorm while on a horse-drawn carriage ride in Stowe, VT. Although they live in Newburyport, MA (such an adorable town), they decided to marry in Vermont, too. They chose a gorgeous venue in East Burke (north of St. Johnsbury, not far from Canada!).

Jeff, who is in graphic design, made their wedding invitations and had them letter pressed at William Arthur. Aren’t they gorgeous? I love the variety of color.

This is the Morgan Barn where the reception was held.

I was so excited when I saw the room Cathleen would be getting ready in. It had great light, and I loved that I could capture both the dress and Cathleen in the same frame!

A horse and carriage transported the guests to the meadow at a top of a hill for the ceremony. Great shot, J!

While I was at the front of the aisle, J captured Cathleen awaiting her cue. Beautiful.

It was very cold at the ceremony site (many guests were bundled in blankets!). As Cathleen was walking up the aisle w/her father she asked her guests if they were doing ok! I have never seen a bride chat walking up the aisle and it definitely made everyone giggle.

Even despite the overcast day, the scenery was still spectacular.

J caught this image of the guests walking down the hill from the meadow after the ceremony (I was up top shooting Cathleen and Jeff getting into the carriage).

In many of their portraits, Cathleen’s veil is vertical from the wind. I love, love, love that their mouths are the only part of their faces exposed in this image.

The Morgan Barn is one of the neatest barn reception sites I have ever seen. It’s very clean, well lit, and spacious. This was the set-up for dinner. Notice the tables in the stalls!

And during dinner. Loved the overhead and Christmas tree lights. Great ambiance!

A western swing band entertained the guests on the dance floor. It was very different, and very fun!

Thank you so much for having us, Cathleen and Jeff! Many congratulations! I hope you are having a blast in Italy (and I hope Jackson is doing well at his therapy-dog training!).

As a side note, we had a fabulous dinner at Elements in St. Johnsbury. If you are ever in the area and looking for a great meal, definitely go there! Thanks for the recommendation, Cathleen and Jeff!
