Allison and Charlie’s Mountain Top Inn wedding in Chittenden, Vermont was one of those weddings right out of a movie. Set in the mountains of Central Vermont, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect backdrop to their joy filled day.
The entire bridal party stayed in a large cabin at the Mountain Top Inn. After they all gathered together for breakfast, the guys left to spend the morning by the pool as the ladies began to prepare for the day.
Once hair and makeup were perfected it was time for Allison to get dressed!
The groom and his closest friends enjoyed a relaxing morning spending time together before they all got dressed and ready for Charlie’s big moment. As his closest friends prepared for the big event in a cabin nearby, Charlie presented them with their gifts, a travel bag filled with thoughtfully picked out items.
Right outside of the cabin on a pathway lined with tall shade trees was the perfect location for Allison and Charlie’s first look.
While waiting for Allison to arrive, Charlie picked some of the yellow wildflowers to present to her when she approached. 100% one of the SWEEETEST first look moments we’ve ever seen.
Remember when we said the Mountain Top Inn was the perfect backdrop for a wedding??? Well, just look at all these perfect portrait locations!
Upon a grassy knoll high above the hotel, Allison was escorted by her parents through rustic sliding barn doors to an awaiting Charlie.
Time to start the party! After their first dances, there was a rousing Horah followed by speeches, dinner and more dancing and celebration!
While all of our weddings are special to us, this one truly stands out. At one time while on the dance floor we, looked around to find we were surrounded by four couples whose weddings we have either already done or will be doing in the coming months! Allison was in Liz and Harry’s wedding, which is how we were connected, as was Erica, whose wedding is coming up in September! It was a pretty incredible feeling!
In a moment that surprised everyone, Allison closed down the reception by joining the band for an EPIC version of Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run. Being a HUGE Springsteen fan, she was completely in her element as she sang every word and had the best time doing it.
As her friends and family cheered for her you could tell that her Mountain Top Inn wedding was everything she could have dreamed it would be!
Congratulations Allison and Charlie! We wish you a lifetime of love and adventure together!
