Scotland is one of my favorite places on earth and since Nathan had yet to be out of the borders of the US, I knew this was the place we would spend our honeymoon. The weather was absolutely gorgeous with only a few days of rain. We rented a lovely flat in the heart of Edinburgh’s old city. We decided to venture out of the city and traveled to Dunfermline, St. Andrews and Dundee. What a wonderful time we had – can’t wait to go back!
We are so excited to share our wedding photos with everyone! Our wonderful friend and photographer, John R. Andersen Photography, captured all of our wonderful moments! We were so blessed to have him be a part of our day and to put the cherries on top, he allowed us to do all of our own edits to the photos. And it wouldn’t be the true nature of a photographer to not shoot something, even for his own wedding! Nathan captured all of the product photographer of our accessories. I must say, Marcelo Makar at MK Diamond Studio did a fabulous job on all of our rings and the necklace!!!
All of our festivities took place in Woodstock, Vermont. Rachel got ready at The Blue Horse Inn, an inn built in 1831 and has rumored to have been a stop on the Underground Railroad – so much history! Nathan got ready at a beautiful rental home in South Woodstock and had photographs taken of him and his groomsmen at the Woodstock Town Hall. Rachel’s dad gave them a special surprise and was able to get them a 1951 Candy-Apple-Red Ford!!
The ceremony took place at Cloudland Farm, a working farm with cows, chickens and turkeys! They have a restaurant on site where they hold gourmet dinners made from organic ingredients grown on the farm or local organic farms. The food was absolutely delicious and we can’t wait to go back and visit for another dinner!
Our lovely friend, David Wimbish, did all of our music. I’m not sure there is another accordion, cellist, violinist all in one???
We hope you enjoy all of the photos. We are so thankful to our parents and family and friends who made this possible. We put so much work into everything and handmade almost every detail. It all turned out beautiful, don’t you think?
