From the Bride… I met Patrick as a young child and although we don’t remember meeting, our parents remember him chasing me around and saying he would marry me one day. Patrick’s parents moved away and all that was left were a few photos of our childhood friendship. It wasn’t until twenty-something years later that we would serendipitously meet again on Christmas! We bonded over our love for skiing, and Patrick would bring me to his family vacation home near Stratton Mountain in Vermont.

After spending many long weekends in the area, we wanted our friends and family to experience our love for Vermont. On our very first day of venue searching, we immediately and completely fell in love with Hildene, Robert Todd Lincoln’s summer estate. The rest fell into place and it was only fitting that we held our ceremony at St. Paul’s Roman Catholic Church in Manchester, as we had met as little kids at our local St. Paul’s in New York.

We both wanted the process to be fun and as relaxed as possible, so we made sure we had ample time for planning. Not too long thereafter, we received the terrifying news that Patrick was diagnosed with Burkitt’s lymphoma. That year was the scariest time of our lives and the last thing on my mind was planning a wedding, but Patrick insisted on not pushing back our wedding date. He proved time and time again to be my emotional rock and it made me love him more fiercely. We are incredibly blessed to announce that he is cancer-free and in remission!

Throughout the entire planning process, we focused on one goal: to share a memorable celebration with the people who mean the world to us, and who fill our lives with their love, support, and happiness. We wanted the mood of our wedding to be romantic and playful, with handmade touches we put together with our family and friends: golden animal drink stirrers and magnets to hold the escort cards, floral bases for our centerpieces, and watercolor menus and table names. Jonathan Young and Elisabeth Millay perfectly captured this feeling through their stunning photography. And we loved how Valerie Barnes swept us off our feet with her artistic, creative filmmaking. Our day would not have been the same without them and all of our amazing vendors.

They say weddings never go exactly as planned, and with so many little details ours was no exception. But it was without a doubt the best day of our lives. The wedding was everything we envisioned – intimate, beautiful, a celebration of our everlasting bond, and the best dance party we could hope for!

From Julia Wade PhotographyI loved this wedding because it was so unique.. It’s not every day you get to photograph a ceremony outside in Vermont in February!! The light was absolutely beautiful and Colleen and Misha did such a beautiful job honoring their history together and their loved ones. They met and fell in love on these beautiful slopes so I truly couldn’t imagine a more perfect place for them to start their marriage together.

From the Bride… I entered into the wedding world with absolutely no knowledge of top designers, trends or what style I wanted – all I was sure of was a classic vision without any overwhelming glitz or embellishments. I tried on several gowns before I knew that I wanted to go with a form fitting and tailored design.

I decided to take a solo trip to Malinda Macari’s store, Your Dream Bridal, without my mom, in favor of a clear head needed to make a decision on my own. Lucky for me, Malinda’s peaceful boutique provided me with the perfect space to find the gown I would later call my own. My first love about the Anne Barge Collette dress was the color. Being a red-head, champagne was a hue I felt complemented me and my vision for the day. I also loved the structure of the dress, it had that “wow effect” I was looking for without being too flashy. The pleats and buttons were a beautiful addition to a simple gown, which I made even more unique by accessorizing with a retro gold veil and a handmade beaded belt. My mom ended up coming back with me once I knew I had found ‘the dress,’ which ended with the emotional reaction I was hoping for and gave me every sense of confidence in my choice.

As for Michael and me. We met online and swiped right.  The old fashioned “Hey, I have a friend I would like to set you up with,” seems to be a thing of the past!

Coincidentally, we only lived one block away from each other in Charlestown, MA. Our relationship went pretty quickly and within nine months, Michael proposed. He was finishing up his MBA and working full time. I planned a weekend getaway in Kennebunkport for his 34th birthday. On our way up we stopped at Nubble Lighthouse in York, ME. He decided to ask me to marry him on his birthday…I was completely shocked! It was such a memorable weekend.

We decided since we were engaged, why wait to get married? We found a venue and set a date within a month and got married three months later! Our wedding date took place on September 11th, 2015. Michael spent much of his life in the Army, fighting for our country in different parts of the world. September 11th has had a lasting impact on all of our lives. Michael and some of his friends in attendance spent multiple years at war as a result of that day. Yet, we chose to marry on this day to also remember it as a day of celebration in the future.
