big event: Vermont Wedding Affair: Fun Captured Photo Booth!

A couple years ago we started offering a photo booth to couples for their wedding celebrations. Wedding guests were crazy for it, so we named it the Fun Captured Photo Booth! Andy and I decided it would be fun to bring along our photo booth to the Vermont Vows Wedding Affair at  at Shelburne Farms this year. We invested in a sparkly, fabulous backdrop to go with the sparkly, fabulous room we were in. Vermont Vows had some gorgeous vintage props for us and Lasso’d Moon created some lovely signs for us. It was so much fun and we couldn’t help but jump in a couple times ourselves.:)Thanks to our wonderful photographer friend Kathleen Landwehrle, we even got a few photos of our Daria Bishop Photographers team!! Thanks Kathleen!

I posted a handful of highlights here, but there are oodles more photos in an online gallery found HERE!! If you were a guest in our photo booth, you are welcome to download as many as you like…as long as you promise to keep our logo on them. And by the way, we loved meeting you!! xoxo

    flask - daria, andy-

    mostly i just follow your posts and look at your photos and don’t comment but i am looking at your photo booth collection and i am struck by how beautifully you have captured joy and love and spirit of people as kind of a universal concept and not just “wedding photography”.

    you guys are about nine different kinds of awesome.

big event: The Vermont Vows Wedding Affair: Shelburne Farms, VT

Andy and I were honored to participate in this year’s Vermont Vows’ Wedding Affair. It’s the most elegant and spectacular wedding show in Vermont and it’s held at the truly majestic Shelburne Farms. We have taken part in this event in years past, but for the last two years we had conflicts in our schedule. This year the format was a bit different than we experienced before. Each area of the Coach Barn was divided into sections with unique wedding themes. Our room was the west hall and it was all about elegance, sophistication and sparkle. There was another room that was a farm to table theme and, honestly, I never got much of a chance to wander about because we were too busy, but I know there were a couple other areas that were amazing as well. In any case I was very pleased with our fancy room. It was absolutely stunning and was designed and brought to life by creatives at Vermont Tent, A Schoolhouse Garden and Let’s Pretend Catering. Lasso’d Moon created the most beautiful paper products, like the program below, for table menus, for vendor tables and for our photo booth props. Wait, what was that? A photo booth? Yes, we brought along our open-air Fun Captured photo booth and it was super fun!  We met so many fabulous people and I was so proud of the way our team worked together to make it such a beautiful event!!

Vermont Tent’s lovely table setting was just one of the areas they contributed to. They also had places to lounge and a big, beautiful bar area. The fab Vermont Tent team are pictured on the bottom left.

Let’s Pretend Catering had AMAZING food!! I know because I might have sampled a few delicious treats myself!;-)

Let’s Pretend also had cute little bags of yummy pretzel snacks to take home.

Photographer fail…I was so busy meeting wonderful people that I forgot to actually take a photo of our own booth set up. Thankfully, we have tons of fun photos from our photo booth…which will be on the very next post!! Yay!! Didn’t Lasso’d Moon make such pretty signs for us?!?

Andy and I had a beautiful assistant for the show…our very own daughter. She was so charming and super helpful.

Best Bands had this wonderful duo to keep us humming along while we were busy mixing and mingling.

When the show was over, Daniel from Let’s Pretend (top left) led our fellow vendors in a toast to celebrate the retirement of our dear friend Andrea (bottom right), who is the wedding coordinator extraordinaire at Shelburne Farms. She is leaving this spring and leaving some very big shoes to fill. We loved working with her and will truly miss not having her as part of some of the most fabulous weddings we’ve taken part in.

Floral Design: Floral Artistry
Cake: Irene’s Cakes by Design
Ceremony Music: Dorset Trio
Band: Radiance, Boston
Catering: Lily and the Rose
Hair: Green Door Day Spa + Salon

Beth and Danny were married at one of our very favorite Vermont venues, Hildene. It was Abraham Lincoln’s son’s estate in the lovely town of Manchester, Vermont. It’s gorgeous and historical and some even say it’s haunted! All we know is that it’s dreamy to work at Hildene and the backdrops for creating amazing images is endless. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite moments from Beth and Danny’s beautiful wedding day!

We’ll start with a few pretty details…

Beth was such a happy bride!

Danny and his boys prepared for the day.

I’m pretty sure that President Lincoln smiled as Beth walked by.;-)

Danny was a little excited to see his bride-to-be!!

So stunning!!

Beth + Danny really wanted to have some photos down on the dirt road. We were happy to make that happen!

I love love love this moment during the ketubah signing.

Time for the big ceremony…

Definitely one of the most amazing spots to get married!!

They really adore each other!

The newlyweds built in plenty of time for photos before their party started. This always makes us very pleased!:)

Cocktails in the tent!

Alison from Floral Artistry is always a bright sunshine of smiles and her flowers are always so beautiful too!!

A few fun, colorful things…

Yum!!

Beth and Danny and their loved ones really know how to celebrate to the fullest!! And one of the craziest moments I’ve photographed is the last image in this series!!

And they lived happily ever after…

xoxo

    Alison Ellis - Daria and Andy,
    These shots are fantastic! The colors look amazing! I remember hearing the beginning of “Eye of the Tiger” as the wedding party was being introduced in the tent. Such a fun couple.

    Hope Murphy - This couple’s wedding site reminds me of your wedding site!! What a romantic wedding that was. :) I love love love your pix.

married: Devon + Brian: Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm

Location: Quechee Inn at Marshland Farms
Flowers: Valley Flower Company

Devon + Brian were married on a gorgeous summer day at the Quechee Inn. It’s always wonderful to have a wedding where everything is on location from the getting ready to the ceremony to the cocktails and reception. The day just flows so nicely without any shuffling around. This place really does have it all too with such lovely backdrops for photos and lots of privacy from the outside world. Devon + Brian were just bubbling over with excitement about their day. Their ceremony, in particular their vows,  were so adorable with so much genuine love for one another. They had everyone in giggles several times. Even me! I hope you enjoy a selection of my favorite images from their bright and sunny day!

All kinds of pretty!

I just love the bright, cheerful colors at this wedding!

Brian quietly prepares for the day…

Devon’s room was a big getting ready party!

The flower girls did such an excellent job with the petals!

Brian spies his wife-to-be!

Here comes the bride…

Such a pretty spot for the ceremony!

Wedded bliss!

Such a vibrant wedding party!:)

I do love some funky old red barns! Especially when I have such a cute couple to stick in front of them!

The way the napkins were folded was cute! Being yellow made them even cuter!

Jazz hands and spirit fingers!!

Brian was a bit on the reserved side…until this dance!!!

I love it when toasts are funny, because the reactions are so great!!

Devon + Brian opted for a sundae bar instead of a traditional cake cutting. So sweet!

The parting shot…
