katy & stephen's idyllic vermont wedding

Sunday, September 13, 2009

Congratulations to my cousin Stephen and his bride Katy who tied the knot this weekend near Woodstock, Vermont!
The bride was radiant and unconventional in an apricot jersey gown. The groom complemented her well in a vintage vest, sepia-colored chinos and- we may not see this again for a while- a tie! The outdoor ceremony was punctuated with the crows of wandering chickens.
The reception was held at a lovely old farmhouse belonging to Katy's family surrounded by wildflower meadows and sheltering pines.
All the couple's choices reflected their laid-back personalities and environmental consciousness. Rather than renting dishes and tablecloths, they rescued mismatched china and tablecloths from thrift stores.
The meal featured a roast pig and thoughtful selection of locally grown organic foods. Katy actually baked the cake herself. Her mother made the frosting and her friend did the decorating with poppy seeds and flowers right from the garden.
The festivities continued late into the night with live bluegrass and a bonfire. Some guests even camped on the property.

What a memorable good time! Congratulations again Katy & Stephen!
