Vermont Spring Wedding

Fall is almost here. I have been delayed in my blogging. Regardless, revisiting this wedding months brought me back to what an awesome day it was. Sarah and Tyler’s wedding was at Hotel Vermont.

4.1.17 A Vermont White Wedding

An April wedding in Vermont can be a tricky one. Many people don’t know this, but Vermont actually has five seasons. The fifth is wedged between winter and spring. Its called mud season.
