This Vermont destination wedding at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe was gorgeous. Just look at the view. This is a must visit spot in Vermont, and is very near the top on the list of destination weddings spots of Vermont. The views are stunning in every direction. There’s a field of Highland Long Hair cows and lots of really, really good beer. It’s the pinnacle of the Vermont experience as far as I’m concerned.
The groom was from France and I’m a bit of a Francophile, so with that and this amazing spot I was excited to second shoot this wedding for the absolutely amazing Danijela of Danijela Weddings from Toronto. I’m a huge fan of Danijela’s work, real moments uniquely captured, moody and edgy–perfection.
I followed the groom and his crew around and captured the day from their end while Danijela captured the bride. So often the spotlight is on the bride but I want to question the way weddings have traditionally been handled. Why do we do these things? I want to approach my work in a more intentional way. I believe my clients, and everyone deserves that. The way weddings have traditionally been handled isn’t always the best. There’s a lot about them and attitudes that go with gendered roles that are problematic. That’s not me and I want to be a part of changing that.
The Lodge is a luxurious Austrian-inspired ski lodge nestled in the mountains of Vermont. The lodge is rustic and the wedding party was classically chic–a great combination. It was a quiet and emotional day filled with plenty of emotion, hugs, fist bumps, champaign, and tears. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed capturing these moments.
