Danielle and David – Our Love Story!
We got married at The Old Lantern in Charlotte, Vermont. Photography was provided by Jay.
David and I met our junior year of high school, through mutual friends. His sister was our waitress on our first date! We went on to different colleges with David coming home to Vermont every weekend to see me. David proposed on our 8th anniversary of dating! I came home to our first apartment together and he proposed at the top of the stairs the second I came in. The ring was made by a Designers Circle who made my mother’s and sister-in-laws rings, they used a family diamond as the center stone.My parents live in Essex Junction, Vermont near Fiori Bridal, I received a photo of a dress in the window of the store from my Mother that she thought was perfect. One day that my Mother knew I had off from work, she called me and said she had made an appointment at Fiori for the two of us. After trying on a dozen or more dresses that were not right, I gave in to trying to one my Mother loved. It was clearly the one for me. Sometimes mother knows best. The dress had actually been discontinued, but I was able to take the dress from the store and left that day with it in my hands.
The staff at the Old Lantern there made our experience seamless and as stress free as possible. One of my favorite parts of planning our wedding was writing our ceremony myself.
The flowers and arrangements were also very important to me. We worked with Meredith Clayton of Clayton Florist in South Burlington, Vermont to create the most beautiful arrangements. They were stunning! She created very natural looking arrangements with blush roses of different sizes, Dusty Miller, and other flowers in blush and cream with an array of textures.
We chose Portrait Gallery (in South Burlington, Vermont) to do our wedding photos for a few reasons. One being that friends of ours had worked with Portrait Gallery for their wedding and the pictures were beautiful, and also how many positive reviews there were online. We worked with Jay, who was fantastic, he took many many pictures in every setting possible at our wedding venue, he didn’t miss a thing.
