Lauren & David Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Stratton Mountain Resort | Ski Resort Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Lauren grew up visiting Vermont to ski with her family, Stratton Mountain being a favorite destination. After She and David started dating, he quickly learned to ski and the couple spent many weekends in the winter traveling up to Stratton to ski, and in the fall and spring to hike. It became such a special place to them that David chose it as the location to propose to Lauren. On a rainy Saturday he surprised Lauren with an ATV ride up the mountain. With a beautiful view of Stratton Village and Bromley in the distance, David got down on one knee and popped the question! He even had champagne for a toast before they rode back down the mountain to enjoy a couple’s massage and a special dinner at her favorite restaurant.

With all of their history there, it came as no surprise that they chose Stratton for the location of their wedding celebration. The village also offered the perfect playground for their guests with an abundance of restaurants, bars, shopping, and activities - plus there was lodging available for everyone. They carried the theme of their location into their place cards, which were shaped like gondolas, and their tables which they named after their favorite trails on the mountain. Another Vermont favorite, maple cotton candy, was a hit during dessert and was a way for the couple to share their love of the Peru Fair, which they go to every year.

Some of their favorite moments involved how happy their families were throughout the day. Lauren’s father danced better, faster, and harder than anyone else and his joy was radiating with every move. They also loved their first look at the covered bridge, something they have skied under many times but had not gone inside of very often. It was a special moment that they took to reflect and relax before the ceremony.

Their advice for other couples; “Make your wedding about you!  Choose the things you love and that will make you happy on your special day.  Capture as many moments of happiness and joy as you can.  And in the end, just relax and enjoy it all because the day goes by entirely too fast!”

Fruitful Fall Inspiration

 

Fruitful Fall Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Autumn Harvest | Vermont Bride Magazine | Ashley Largesse Photography

Fall is both a welcome and dissapointing season in Vermont. It is a reminder of what is coming in a few short weeks, that summer is over and the snow is imminent. But you can't beat the colors of the fall leaves, the bountiful harvest of fruits and vegetables, crisp afternoons spent at the fair, and cozy evenings around bonfires with some apple cider. It is also a favorite time to have a wedding and we love these gorgeous and inspiring images from Ashley Largesse Photography. It is a fresh departure from the typical deep plums and burnt oranges you typically see for an autumn celebration. A crisp, clean white and brigher orange hues are the perfect contrast to muted honeyed wheat and the faded greens of succulents.
