Jess & Chris | Waitsfield, Vermont

Jess & Chris | Real Vermont Love Story | The Skinner Barn | Waitsfield Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

Jess and Chris first met at Saint Michael's College, in Colchester, Vermont, and began dating soon after graduation. They fell in love in Burlington, and Jess grew up in Vermont, so the state had special meaning to them both. Even though they moved out of state they go back to Vermont every chance they get to play outside, eat, drink, and be with friends and family. The special meaning, and natural beauty of the Green Mountain State, made it an obvious choice for the location of their wedding.

Jess and Chris are relaxed and laid back so their celebration was the same. The cocktail hour was held outside on the lawn, compete with lawn games like stilts, corn hole, ladder ball, and bocce. An array of local cured meats and cheese from Vermont, and fresh shucked oysters from Massachusetts (where the couple now reside) were on hand as well. Having good food, drinks, and most importantly fun was the focus of the day.

To read more of Jess and Chris' love story and see more photos of their wedding, pick up a copy of the Summer/Fall issue of Vermont Bride Magazine, out at the end of May!
