Chittenden, Vermont Wedding: Kaitlin + Aldo Reception

Jul 3, 2010 | Weddings

This final installment of Aldo and Kaitlin’s wedding might just be my favorite … these guys had such an awesome party!  I started cocktail hour with some detail shots of the reception setup in the big tent at the Mountain Top Inn.  I loved the fresh blues and greens, and the centerpieces were so pretty with the wrapped leaves:


The rain finally cleared and everyone spilled out onto the patio.  I am loving the shot of Aldo and all his cousins – they were giving me their best “crazy”.  🙂


We moved back into the tent for dinner, and Kaitlin and Aldo went straight into their first dance:


Toasts were held both before and after dinner, and Aldo’s aunt did an awesome performance for them too:


The parent dances started so sweetly and ended with crazy dance moves – love it!


From there we went straight into a raucous dance party.  DJ Nate Oinonen was fantastic – he kept the party building throughout the night (and he’s also such a great guy to work with – I highly recommend meeting with him if you haven’t booked your DJ yet!)


There’s a Dominican wedding tradition of bringing out some kind of fun surprise during the party … in this case crazy foam hats, huge glasses, glowing shot glasses, noisemakers and more.  I was in HEAVEN!  It elevated the reception into the most spectacular party I’ve ever attended!  I can’t even begin to explain how much fun this was to photograph … hopefully the photos convey a little of the amazing atmosphere in the tent that night.


Huge thanks to Kaitlin, Aldo, and their wonderful families for bringing me out to Vermont and for showing me such a good time.  I hope you’ve enjoyed the teasers!
