Say it with me: Miracles do happen! What started out as resignation to a day full of gloomy rain, turned into joy and happiness as the clouds parted and gave Chris and Meg full sun while the forecast called for torrential downpours!

The day began in the absolutely charming Connecticut River Valley Inn, where Meg and Chris each got ready in the company of their family. Later, the Barns at Wesleyan Hills gave us the perfect background of green grass and willow trees to highlight their rustic, natural wedding! Slate blue and muted greenery along with white accent flowers could be found everywhere from the invitations, their attire, the ceremony arch, and the barn itself! 

Guests enjoyed lawn games, specialty cocktails, and even a Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream bar! Chris and Meg just radiate a faithful love. I don't know if it's their 10 years together or their genuine joy, but when you look at them you just know they'll love each other forever! 💕 

Chris, describe Meg in 5 words:

"Excited, Reliable, Caring, Brilliant, Ambitious"

Is this not the sweetest First Look?!?!

Meg, describe Chris in 5 words:

"Goofy, Humble, Caring, Dedicated, Amazing"

I know I'm biased, but red-headed flower girls are THE CUTEST!!! 

I think this is my new favorite photo!!! 

A sunset photo is a wedding day essential!! 

Farm tables were decorated with garlands of greenery and white blooms, and birch tree ladders were hanging high, adorned with small mason jars of white flowers.

What are you most excited about for your wedding day?

"Walking into the reception and getting to see the space filled with all of our close friends and family!"
