Last June I was very lucky to second shoot for Emma Dodge Hanson for Liz & Jeremiah's wedding in Manchester, Vermont. It was a spectacular day, and an incredibly beautiful wedding.

For me, the wedding began with the bachelors.

Hildene has an incredible wedding team. It was my job to photograph the details of the party while cocktails continued in the garden.

Everyone started to let loose - the band was too good to ignore.

A few minutes before this happened, several of the groom's party came over to me and told me something was going to happen and that I should make sure I was there. For some reason, I think this was not the first time they have lifted a friend over their heads!

No less than an incredible party. The big send off to the couple was a parade of sparklers and cheers.
