Sarah and Chris met in medical school. "I could tell I liked him right away even in our scrub caps and masks," Sarah recalls. Chris proposed while the couple was on a snowshoeing hike in the Beartooth Mountains in Montana.  Chris hid the ring in one of their dog's backpacks. While reaching in the backpack to get a "treat" for their dog Lucy, he instead pulled out his Grandmother's ring to propose! The couple got married at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont, where Sarah grew up. The ceremony overlooked the Green Mountains, and a Hawaiian musician played "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" on ukulele. Sarah and Chris wanted a very natural feel to their wedding, and the Green Mountains setting, barefoot bridesmaids (and bride!), big open roses mixed with wildflowers, and a color palette of pink, peach, cream and blue brought out the romantic elegance of their wedding. Many guests stayed at the lodge with the couple for a fun weekend of mountain biking and trail running before and after the wedding. "We felt like we were able to connect with our friends and family even though it was a busy event filled weekend," Sarah says.

Pastel pink and white roses made up the romantic bridal bouquet. Sprigs of Baby's Breath completed the soft look.
Sarah's custom made gown had a gorgeous lace overlay train down the back of the dress.
