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!
