Favorite Moment During a Wedding: Wedding reception entrances….We had a recent wedding that had such a memorable entrance, the FOB did a ‘Sports Announcement’ to introduce the entire wedding party, and then the couple entered, it was perfect! It had that ‘school spirit vibe’ – we don’t think we will see one like that again!

Favorite Vermont Activity: The local Farmers Market here in Waitsfield every Saturday morning!
