The Wedding of Alisha & Galen | Mountain Top Inn Wedding | Vermont Destination Wedding
We love weddings in the mountains. So when Alisha and Galen reached out to us for their Vermont destination wedding we couldn’t be more excited. Although from Boston, they chose to celebrate their wedding in the Green Mountains at the Mountain Top Inn and Resort in Chittenden, Vermont. The venue sits right on a gorgeous lake and is surrounded by mountains and meadows everywhere you look. It is truly one of the most breathtaking views we’ve witnessed at a wedding. There is something so romantic and whimsical about being surrounded by the beauty of nature, especially on a wedding day.
Alisha & Galen are seriously the sweetest couple and it was so obvious on their wedding day how in love they are. One of the most rewarding parts of our job is witnessing a couples’ love for one another. Alisha and Galen exchanged letters with each other on their wedding day and it was such a joy to hear each of them. Through their letters to one another, it was so clear how much these two mean to each other. It was hard not to shed a few tears.
One of the most incredible parts of this wedding has to be the story behind Alisha’s wedding dress. She actually wore her mother’s wedding dress. She had it whitened and altered and oh my gosh it was seriously the sweetest thing ever. Alisha and her mom have a very special and close relationship. Alisha and her mom are so close, Alisha even made her mother her Matron of Honor… it doesn't get any cuter than that. Also, it just happened to be around her parent’s 30th wedding anniversary. What an amazing gift to her parents to wear her mother’s wedding dress almost exactly 30 after they were married.
Alisha & Galen’s wedding was picture perfect. The sun set beautifully, and throughout the day there were these huge dark puffy clouds that made the sky look incredible! The Barn at the Mountain Top Inn is a perfect reception spot and was beautifully decorated with twinkle lights and candles. It really had such a romantic, cozy vibe. Galen and his mother shared one the most memorable mother/son dances we’ve seen! They seriously tore up the dance floor and had everyone else pumped up for a night full of unforgettable memories and dancing. Oh, and did I mention they had a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream cake?! How sweet is that! Watch Alisha & Galen’s wedding film at the top of this blog to truly experience their Vermont destination wedding!
