fall in Vermont

About a month ago we went to a wedding in Stannard, Vermont for a wedding.  I had always wanted to go to New England in the fall and was VERY excited to see Jeff and Mona get married against a backdrop of fiery rolling hills.

First stop?  The original Ben and Jerry's in Waterbury, VT.  I usually don't like Ben and Jerry's as much as I like Bryers (mint chocolate chip) - but chocolate fudge brownie from time to time is pretty awesome.

I thought this list of the top ten B&J's flavors was interesting.

Because Stannard is a pretty small town, we stayed in rented houses to share with 10 or 12 other friends. Check out our view from the front porch.  If you are wondering, it is much colder than it looks.

 Jeff and Mona were married in a little church that her father helped restore.  It was built in the mid to late 1800's (can't remember the exact date).  It was really sparse on the inside, but I really liked it.

The flowers were a gorgeous mix of fall colors and textures (note the apples on the window sill).  You know I never go to a wedding without stopping to enjoy the flowers.

The light fixture inside the church held oil lamps that had to be lit by hand.  The entire fixture then could be raised back toward the ceiling.

Even though this wedding was an hour and a half away from Burlington, the entire college crew came for the occasion.  It was such a great weekend.

Congratulations to the bride and groom!
