"Vermont is where we fell in love," says bride Sarah. "We knew our wedding had to be local." Frequent visitors of the Champlain Islands, Sarah and Robert celebrated at the North Hero House on a brilliant summer day.

The couple wanted their nuptials to be intimate and romantic. To that end, they invited only immediate family. "There was something special about only having 15 people present to witness such a special moment," says Sarah. "It allowed Rob and I to really live our day, and focus on our love." 

Sarah worked with Emily of Tipsy Tulip Designs to create a red white and blue bouquet, which was a surprise for her military husband. "He loved it so much he sent it out to be pressed and framed for her!" says Emily. "It just warms my heart every time I see a photo of it and think of Sarah and Robert."

Congratulations, Sarah and Robert!
