We were engaged in Monserrat, Spain and wanted to bring that spirit back with us for our wedding day in Vermont. Our theme, “From Monserrat to Middlebury,” came to life as Spanish Black Tie in a Barn. Our priority was blending refined sophistication with elements of nature and summer. Middlebury, with its rolling green hills, mountains and clean summer air was the perfect place to bring it to life.

Jason & Genevieve had incredible taste and a refined pallet both for the culinary and aesthetic experience of their wedding. With incorporated Spanish nuances in thier Vermont countryside destination wedding, the vibrant colors and bold statement pieces were met with a classy entourage of friends and family from all over the world. It was a weekend to be remembered in style.

We had been looking for a documentary-style photographer with a sense of magic in the work—which we saw immediately when discovering Laura’s style. It captured everything we were looking for—natural moments that felt dreamy, and above all, romantic.

After a relaxed morning getting ready, a massive tour bus came and picked up the entourage of guests and took a couple shuttles to the wedding venue Tourterelle Inn in New Haven, Vermont. The weather was surprisingly warm and we paced portraits with bouts of AC and cold champagne in the shade.

She was as excited about our big day as we were. She was so thorough and attentive without ever coming across as demanding or intrusive. She was always on the lookout for the right light and mood. She just went above and beyond in amplifying the magic of our day.

VENDOR SHOUT OUT: Tourterelle Inn wedding event staff were incredible to work with. Their sense of class and pacing with food and even gentle attentiveness to nurture the guests on an unusually hot day—it was beautiful working with such a thoughtful team. Polka Dot Events from New York also brought their a-game and thought of the details and changes and obstacles without ever letting the guests feel the behind-the-scene hubbub. I really can’t say enough about either wedding masters. They know their trade and they are genuinely concerned about delivering the vision and beauty they’ve fleshed out for months prior. It was inspiring to see the initiative and endless energy and disposition of the whole event team and collaborative force to be reckoned with.

Our planners, Polka Dot Events, were complete rockstars and helped make our Vermont wedding possible! They were there for us every step of the way and made the day flawless. New Leaf Organics, the local florists we worked with, did outstanding work to create a lush ambiance inside and outside the barn. I still get questions about who did the flowers! And of course, the masters of ambiance: the Spanish Guitar duo Jason and Elysa Hochman. They brought true soul and romance to our weekend.
Laura has a real talent for documenting love. She is passionate about capturing the energy of a relationship and the little moments in the day that create lasting memories. We loved working with her and are in love with our photos!

J + G, what a privilege to have been trusted with your destination wedding in Vermont and storyteller for such an incredible weekend of festivities with friends from all over the globe. We look forward to your future and wish you the sweetest of newlywed seasons :) // LKM
