Alyce + Ed | Hildene Wedding Photography | Manchester, Vermont

How do we begin to say how much we love working at Hildene? It’s a place that seems untouched by the passage of time, and lets you have a truly old-world feel at a facility with modern conveniences. Working with Nicole (the stellar wedding coordinator on-site) is an added bonus; she cares deeply for all of her wedding clients, and you can really see how much she puts into these events!

Many couples choose to get ready at the nearby Wilburton Inn, owned and operated by dedicated innkeeper and hostess Melissa Levis. When we’ve stayed at the Wilburton we’ve had a wonderfully relaxing time, with top notch amenities and all the mountain air you can breathe. (Not to mention breakfast. Those breakfasts are to die for.) Ed got ready in the RKO Movie Star Room in the main house, while Alyce and her girls got ready at the Green Mountain house across the lawn, which gave them some privacy and space. Their wedding day dawned blue and hot, with a late summer sun that was just short of oppressive, but the happy couple hardly seemed to notice once they laid eyes on each other. After their touching ceremony and grinning exit, we spent some time on the grounds of the historic home before joining their guests at the reception.

(Planning a Hildene wedding? Because of the sprawling grounds and extensive photographic opportunities at Hildene, we highly recommend scheduling a first look and a long stretch of private portrait time so we can explore with you and really take advantage of the location! This has the added bonus of getting you to your party faster after the ceremony; and who would want to miss cocktail hour in gardens as grand and beautiful as these?)
