Karen and Bill travel a lot, so when it came to a theme for their wedding, they ran with the Air McNamara theme. It was a wonderful fit for the ballroom at the Stowe Mountain Lodge. This was my first time at the Lodge and I must say for a resort that has only been around for 6 years they are seasoned professionals. I go to enough of these luxury resorts to notice when a place is top-notch, such as the valet leaving my car in an accessible spot all day and remembering me, just like they said he would, when I picked up my keys. And the wedding coordinator, Gabbie, who knew my name when I arrived and was at the event well into the evening. That is truly above and beyond my typical experience.
