Sylvia & Tim

Winter Wedding in Essex Vermont The Ponds at Bolton Valley

This last weekend we celebrated in a winter wonderland in Essex, Vermont at The Essex Resort and their secluded mountain venue, The Ponds at Bolton Valley. Sylvia & Tim could not have chosen a more perfect setting!! We were nervous at first about the weather because it was looking like the forecast on Saturday was turning into rain instead of snow. But a miracle happened just in time to make all our dreams come true! The rain stopped just in time for their first look and portraits!!

This was our first time shooting a wedding in the winter cold and honestly, I would do it a million times over!! Between the lingering snow on the ground, the leaves in the trees, the overcast skies, and the fire in the fireplace, it was simply a perfect day.

Sylvia & Tim were supposed to celebrate in Vermont last December, but due to the pandemic, they decided to have an intimate ceremony in Orlando, FL and postpone their Vermont event until this year. The ceremony itself was a beautiful vow renewal and this time, they were in the place where they dreamed of having their big day. We are so grateful to have been able to share it with them and their friends and family!

The florals were stunning!!!

Sylvia is a vision in that gorgeous light!!

Tim is one of Cody’s good friends and he got to be part of the wedding party! So special!

Cody was still as helpful as could be though throughout the day, playing double duty… look at that man. The absolute best! haha

Sylvia & Tim still did a first look and it was just as sweet as the first time!

Also, look at those smiles!! Their joy just radiates!

Then we made our way to The Ponds for the Ceremony & Reception. What an awesome venue!

These two have been taking ballroom lessons for the last two years in preparation for this moment!! They are amazing!

Thank you to these wonderful vendors!
