Elizabeth & Dylan Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Waitsfield Vermont Barn Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Elizabeth and Dylan’s relationship evolved from friendship to something more during their time at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York. On their eighth anniversary they planned a hiking trip in New Hampshire but what Elizabeth thought would be a day trip was really a romantic weekend getaway in a log cabin that Dylan had planned. On the first evening while sitting by a waterfall at sunset, Dylan proposed!

Elizabeth grew up in Vermont and always envisions having her wedding there someday. The couple wanted a vanue that was both indoors and outdoors, with a beautiful view. The Skinner Barn had everything on their checklist, and more. While the day of their wedding seems like a blur of amazing events, the feeling of love and support from their friends and family is what stands out to them most. An indescribable feeling of joy to accompany a surreal weekend of celebrating their relationship and marriage.

Elizabeth and Dylan have this advice for other couples: “All the details are fun (and sometimes stressful) to plan but remember what it’s all about.  No matter what the details look like, it will be the most amazing day, celebrating you and your partner with so much love from family and friends.  One thing we did is we took a moment to ourselves right after the ceremony, we walked down the aisle and went straight to the side of the barn, where they had set up a glass or champagne for us and we just had a few minutes to reflect and be alone, it was one of the most memorable moments of our wedding.  So even if it’s only a few minutes, take it, spend a few minutes alone with your new husband/wife.”

Erin & Paul Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Rustic Mountain Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Erin had no idea that she would meet her future husband when she embarked on her Appalachian Trail thru-hike (hiking the entire trail from Maine to Georgia), but when she met Paul on a section of the trail in Sunfish Pond, New Jersey they swapped emails after eating lunch together. Paul had hiked from Georgia to Maine the year before and was working as a Ridge Runner on the trail. He met up with Erin for one of her final weeks of her hike and they had their first date. The Sunfish Pond section of the trail would later have even more significance as it is the spot where Erin proposed to Paul! She convinced him to go on an impromptu hike on their way to Vermont for Thanksgiving and surprised him with handmade wooden engagement rings.

Erin and Paul decided on Vermont for the location of their wedding because it fit the bill for the outdoor, mountain wedding they wanted. It also helped that Erin’s parent’s home was the perfect location to hold it. Included in their invitations were prayer flags, which they asked their guests to do something creative with and mail them back. The couple then took the flags and hung them in the trees at the site of their ceremony.
