Jay and Sandi had a pretty good idea of what the Mountain Top Venue was going to look like weeks before we arrived for Cary and Kelly’s Vermont destination wedding. Since Cary is a talented wedding photographer himself, he had made several trips up to the venue during the months leading up the wedding. Each time sending plenty of pics for them to see. As they drove up to the Mountain Top Inn on the morning of Cary and Kelly’s wedding, the first thing that came to their mind was that the photos they had seen simply did not do this place justice. It was from that moment on that their goal was simple. They were going to do everything they could to capture Cary and Kelly’s wedding in a way that showed off just how beautiful this place was since that was the main reason they chose the Mountain Top Inn to get married at.
Cary and Jay first me at one Jay’s workshops and the two of them have been friends ever since. Once engaged, Cary had a pretty good idea that Jay and Sandi were going to be the ones to photograph his wedding. He introduced them to Kelly and it became an even easier decision as the two of them fell in love with the engagement photos that Jay and Sandi captured for them. Due to running the studio, Jay and Sandi only take on a handful of destination weddings per year but this was far from a tough decision. Even though it was a 6-hour drive they had been looking forward to this wedding from the moment they booked it.
Jay and Sandi drove up the night before the wedding, stayed at an AirBnB only minutes from the Mountain Top Inn. As they drove up the venue the next morning they couldn’t help but think about how lucky they are to call this work. It was easily one of the most picturesque looking landscapes they had seen on the East Coast, and the ceremony location couldn’t have been any prettier. The arbor was set in a field with a beautiful lake and forest green mountain range just behind it as a backdrop. The weather was perfect, the sun was out, and the entire day couldn’t have gone any more perfect than it did. The day was filled with emotional moments that filled everyone’s eyes with tears of joy to moments of laughter that left us with memories that will surely last many years to come.
We couldn’t be happier for the new Mr. and Mrs. McCaughey and couldn’t be more thankful that the two of them chose Twisted Oaks to be the ones to capture their big day.
