When it comes to all the things that can go wrong on the day of a wedding, there are few things worse in a bride’s mind than uncooperative weather. Especially when the wedding is outdoors. And on a lake! Luckily when the clouds rolled in over Lake Champlain in Vermont in the days leading up to Caroline and Sean’s June wedding, a little leftover rainwater was no match for their beaming smiles. Judging by Barrie Fisher Photographers‘ photos of the day, they didn’t even notice!
Caroline and Sean filled their reception at Basin Harbor Club in Vergennes, Vermont to the brim with fun touches like colorful oversized chairs, Converse footwear for the groomsmen, and even a gun holster garter and Ben & Jerry’s cake. Despite a little flooding during the ceremony due to such heavy rain prior, Caroline’s disco heels kept right on shining, all the way into an amazing party featuring Joey Scott and the Connection.
Not only did Joey and Co. keep the mood light and the feet moving, but it seems they made quite an impression in Basin Harbor. A week later we received this note from the bride’s mother. We’re not tearing up, it’s the misty images, we swear.
I can’t believe it has taken me a week to write to you…all i have heard from everyone this week is how great the band was. I have one friend who said, “guess what I was doing all week?” i guessed and he said ‘No, I’ve been trolling the Joey Scott website. I love those people!” You told me early on in this process that you wanted Caroline and Sean to walk away from their wedding and say they know it was the best wedding ever. Well, you accomplished that. We ALL loved the music…young and old. You are fabulous, and so is the rest of the band. I will never forget the brass section out in the crowd doing their thing…a highlight! Your female vocalists are amazing….really, I can’t say enough.Thank you for everything. You were so easy to work with and so professional. I hope you get the chance to come back to Basin Harbor and play again some day.
