2 words…WEDDING FEST! I had SUCH a fun time photographing Kim and Dennis’ wedding today! I just love when couples think outside of the box when planning their wedding! What’s outside of the box you might ask…hmmm, let’s see. How about the groomsmen wearing checkered slip on vans, Kim’s skull reception sneakers, Dennis’ titanium ring, a save the date printed on beer coasters, their gorgeous outdoor ceremony, their reception at a German Beer garden, picking out their own music for the reception, hot pretzels, beer mug favors, a dancing hippopotamus, and a cast of interesting characters! The weather held out all day long and we were able to get some awesome shots of Kim and Dennis at their ceremony site at Ringwood State Park. Thank you so much for letting me in on your wedding fest, I had a blast! Enjoy Vermont!
There are a few things at work in this shot of Kim and Dennis’ rings. The first is that the background depicts a gear which ties into Dennis’ bike and motorcycle riding. Second, Dennis’ ring has those same “gear” like notches in it. Third, the colors match the groomsmen sneakers. Fourth, the officiant made some poignant comments about the circle being a symbol for marriage with no beginning or ending.
Had I known, I would have worn mine too!
The lovely Kim.

They had their ceremony in front of these really cool old iron gates.
1, 2 (bend) , jump on 3!
The next few shots were taken around their ceremony site.
LOVE this one!
And on to Beer/Wedding Fest!
Dennis dancing with Kim and his beer!
We’ve all seen brides maids dancing with elderly gentlemen, but if you look closer, she is actually dancing with an elderly gentleman, AND a stuffed hippopotamus! Beat that!
Drop and give me 20!
Another favorite! Salute to the beer gods!
