As many of you are probably aware, Vermont was hit hard last weekend by tropical storm Irene. Monica, who was helping Dan from Kapitol Photography shoot a wedding at Sugarbush on Sunday, ended up having to stay the night due to impassable roads and flash flooding (though the wedding party had tons of fun regardless!). She has been documenting some of the recovery process on her blog.
Several wedding venues and vendors were affected by the flooding, and many people are working as quickly as possible to recover their homes and businesses. There has been an absolutely amazing effort from volunteers showing up to lend a hand and donating supplies and money. For our part, we are going to be donating 5% of our total shooting fee to the United Way’s Vermont Disaster Relief Fund for all weddings booked during the month of September. So if, between now and September 30, you book a package with eight hours of shooting, $140 will go to the relief fund. Check out this Seven Days post and the #VTResponse website for other ways to help.
Hope everyone is staying safe and dry!
