I’m so excited to share these gorgeous Hildene wedding photos this afternoon! Paige+Rich had one of the most beautiful summer days we’ve had all years, even though rain was in the forecast the entire previous week. We worked quickly, and tried to take advantage of the weather as much as possible “before the rain hit,” and since it never actually came, we ended up with an array of incredible photos. Before we dive into these Hildene wedding photos though, I want to share some of Paige’s comments from the wedding:
What are your wedding colors and/or themes?
I wanted everything to be soft and whimsical – I tried to incorporate colors that worked with the breathtaking beauty of Hildene. My bridesmaids wore a soft blue tulle gown and the flowers were primarily white and green with pops of pink.
What is your inspiration when planning your wedding?
The garden and landscape at hildene is so beautiful so it wasn’t difficult to find inspiration. I wanted a whimsical romantic wedding and I got just that!
Did you incorporate any fun themes/motifs or design elements?
Hildene is such a unique a beautiful place; the luscious green landscape, rolling mountains and beautiful flowers provide for a stunning venue – the vision was to truly incorporate this surrounding into the theme.
Did you include any special traditions, old or new?
I loved planning my wedding so I had a lot of fun incorporating all the traditional elements. The bouquet and garter tosses were hilarious!
The getting ready was at the Equinox Resort, and the room we had was perfect
Paige keeps the string of amazingly gorgeous C+W brides alive and well!
Rich and the guys were at a rental house for the getting ready
Love this capture
The church wedding ceremony was beautiful
We’re always waiting for moments like these to happen
After the ceremony it was time for some Hildene wedding photos! This bridal party shot is the banner on our facebook page right now
So many great backdrops for these bridal party images
Of course you know I love my bride+groom stuff – and this car with the Vermont mountains in the backdrop was heaven for me
Vermont wedding photos at their best right here – in love

The reception tent was designed beautiful by Paige and her mother
The lighting really made the reception come together
Again, the real moments we’re always looking to capture…
And what’s a Vermont wedding without a Ben and Jerry’s cart!?
