Cecilia and Jake : Sugarbush Resort : Wedding (Part 1)

This is the first of two times I get to shoot a wedding at Sugarbush this season (next is with two house photo in September).  Man I love this venue.  It's GORGEOUS, tucked in the Green Mountains in the breathtaking Mad River Valley. When Cecilia and Jake got in touch, as soon as I heard Sugarbush I was all over it.  Then when I met them for their engagement shoot, it was clear the location wasn't going to be the best part about this wedding. They were so sweet and so in love . . . photographing them was easy. 

Driving to Sugarbush is a treat, through some of the prettiest parts of Vermont, and the blue sky and reasonable temps (it's been a little hot around here lately) had us super excited (the other part of 'us' being Elizabeth, second shooter extraordinaire!).    We were greeted by gardens in bloom, the mountain breeze waving through the Queen Annes Lace, and the chair lift cranking along, full of mountain bikers. But that chair was also waiting for a bride (mountain top wedding!)  Since we arrived early we checked out so many of the beautiful details. The flowers, the dress! the best woman's dress (fuchsia crinoline!), pinwheels and sunglasses . .   oh my, so much to capture.  I can't show it all to you, but here's a little taste from the first part of the day.  Stay tuned for more!
