Chelsea and Chris were married at the bride’s parent’s home in Chester, Vt. on September 1. “My dad always talked about having his daughter get married there when we were kids,” Chelsea said. “Chris and I had talked about doing it there for years too. So, when the time came, it was practically a foregone conclusion, despite having moved across the country to California a year before!” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with an illusion neckline, accessorized with a fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a patterned tie. The outdoor ceremony’s focal points were a fabulous baby’s breath wreath and mason jars atop tree stumps. Notice benches were used instead of chairs? “After we kissed and walked back down the aisle, we went out into the field and looked back at the barn, tent, and all of our guests,” she said. “Up until then, I had it together, but seeing our vision all come together was incredibly emotional, and I welled up with tears of joy. I often close my eyes and go back to that moment to recapture the feeling.” Signature cocktails such as “rocket man” and “unicorn” and local organic fare were served, thank-you notes were at each place setting, and maple syrup in jars were given out as favors. The newlyweds’ favorite moment? “Having both a first dance and a first karaoke song that we had rehearsed together,” Chelsea said. At the end of the night, everyone was encourage to star gaze!

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

It embodies the feeling of a mountainside inn in Vermont.

A close friend of ours married us; the relaxed feeling of the day; getting to wear my big beautiful dress around.

Sara & Nick

August 3

South Hero, Vermont

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

Nick’s family has owned a beautiful piece of land on Lake Champlain for over 40 years. Growing up, Nick spent nearly every summer there and once we met so did I. We have so many wonderful memories together and with our family at the lake house. We wanted to add our wedding memories to this special place as well.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. We loved our beautiful and delicious wedding cake make by my aunt complete with cute cake toppers made by my good friend Randi. 

2. We tied the Lumineer’s song “Ho Hey” throughout our invites and wedding. We placed one bottle of red with a picture of Nick when he was little and one bottle of white with a picture of me when I was little with our favorite lyrics from the song.

3. We decided that in lieu of a unity candle that we would bring our family and friends together with a group reading. Everyone recited a promise to love and support us through all the days of our marriage. It was very special to feel so loved and supported by everyone we cared about most.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about. 

We closed our ceremony with a “reading” from one of our best friends. He read the lyrics to one of our favorite songs “Power of Love” by Huey Lewis. As people began to figure out what the reading was from, there were some smiles and an indication of the fun that was in store for the next few hours. After we kissed our DJ started playing “Power of Love” as we walked back down the aisle while our friends and family tossed rainbow jimmies. It was the perfect combination of heartfelt, hilarious, and fun. We loved it.

Intimate Rainy Day Wedding in Vermont

Julie & Andrew

July 28

Bristol, Vermont

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The red barn. Andrew and I always knew we would get married in Vermont — we met in Vermont while at school. The Inn at Baldwin Creek is known for their food so it was at the top of our list when we started looking for venues. As soon as we walked on the property, we saw the barn and knew this was the place.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. The ceremony. We planned to have the wedding ceremony in the flower garden, but due to a sudden rain shower, it was moved to the barn. Listening to the rain hit the roof while saying our vows was magical. As soon as we said our I dos, the rain stopped!

2. The best man and maid of honor speeches. They were both so funny and touching.

3. The food was outstanding.

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding you can’t stop thinking about.

Dancing with our friends and family.

Preppy Pink and Navy Mountainside Wedding in Vermont

Jessica & Jack

July 16

East Fairfield, Vermont 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride: 

1. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

I loved them all! The sailcloth tents, the lighting, the flowers, the stationary, the photobooth Jack made, my dress and shoes, the sky lanterns, the fireworks–everything just came together so perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for more.

2. If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

As a floral designer, I always tell brides to pick one theme and stick with it. Once you’ve settled on an idea, you shouldn’t look at or tag anything that doesn’t fit with your vision. Also, offer your guests something to do in addition to dancing, so they don’t leave early. We had tables set up in the lounge tent with a box of board games and cards so that guests, who didn’t want to dance, would have something fun to do instead. 

3. Give us one moment from your wedding day that you can’t stop thinking about. 

When Jack and I talk about our wedding, two things we always mention are how truly happy and in love we both were that day and still are, and how amazing it was to watch 40 sky lanterns (lit by our guests) float away into a sky of fireworks after the sun had set.
