Amanda &  Ben Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Country Inn Wedding at the Lilac Inn | Cozy Vermont Wedding at a Country Inn | Vermont Bride Magazine

 

How and where did you meet? Benjamin and I met in Philadelphia at the, now closed 941 Theatre, on New Year’s Eve 2008. It was love at first sight. I thought he was so handsome! We were friends for a few years, then started dating long-distance in 2011, i was in rutland and he was in Philadelphia, I eventually moved to Philadelphia by the end of that summer.

What was the proposal like? Benjamin proposed on Christmas morning in our living room in Philadelphia. It was just the two of us and it was so personal and romantic I still can’t believe how surprised I was. It was so special!

Modern and Feminine Ballet Wedding Inspiration | Airy, Dreamy Pink and Blue Wedding Design | Vermont Bride Magazine

Initially inspired by the Pantone Colors of the Year, “Serenity” and “Rose Quartz”, this wedding inspiration photo shoot is soft, dreamy, and playful in nature. The soft, feminine pink and powdery blue complement each other so beautifully. Fluid and airy link the art of ballet, the classically modern backdrop of the Olympic Rooftop Pavilion provided a perfect canvas to bring the vision to life. The breezy open air patio gave the Sarah Seven gown from The Dress Theory the most ideal flowy and fluttery feel. Floaty, hanging, and free moving florals and modern details mixed with elegant, vintage feeling props come together with the pinks and blues to create an elegant and dreamy combination.

Bevin & Thom Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Rustic and Elegant Country Wedding in Dorset Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

 

How and where did you meet? We both worked at the Huntington Theatre Company together, though Thom likes to tell it that they really started talking and flirting when Bevin directed a play he wrote for another theatre company.

What was the proposal like? We’d been talking about marriage in the abstract for a while, so Thom eventually got around to buying a ring. A few days later — and before he had a chance to come up with any kind of grand scheme worthy of a proposal — he was sitting at his writing desk when Bevin walked over in a towel, fresh out of the shower. She was in a sentimental mood, crying as she spoke about something she wanted to do at that abstract future wedding, whenever it might be.

So naturally, Thom got up and walked away without a word, leaving her standing there, dripping wet and sobbing in a towel. (He doesn’t always think things through.)

This would have probably been the end of their relationship if he hadn’t returned with the ring he’d just bought, dropped down on one knee, and said, “Okay, so let’s do it.” Later, after they called their families, he would clarify that the “it” was “get married,” and officially asked her to marry him in a yes-or-no way to avoid any confusing.

Spring Wedding In the Woods Inspiration | Woodland Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

This gorgeous woods wedding inspiration started with the Pantone 2017 colors of Kale, Greenery, and Pale Dogwood. With a color palette like that the thought of a woodland setting immediately springs to mind. The Fernwood Cellars' Redwood Retreat in Gilroy California was the perfect setting for bringing out all of the greens and browns. Paired with dramatic florals and ferns everything comes together to create a very romantic theme with a touch of mystery.

Patricia & Nicholas Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Country Wedding with a Barn | Vermont Bride Magazine

How and Where did you meet? Nicholas and I met back in High School- The first time we dated Patricia was 18 and Nicholas was 20- we were smitten with each other telling everyone we would marry all our family said it was just puppy love- as typical teens we broke up. A couple years later we dated again then dated long distance while Patricia was in Utah again we broke up. Lived life separately without any communication for nearly 9 years. Then a Facebook message changed that- Patricia Messaged Nicholas December 11, 2012 to see where and how He was. He actually responded- at that time I was living in West Palm Beach Florida and Nick was in Vermont with now a son; Evan he was 6 year old. He later would fly and we would reunite, truly 3rd time is a charm! We hit it off, almost like we never lost that connection and our love was still there. I moved back to Vermont and we moved in together July 13, 2013. By Dec 08. 2013 we found out we were pregnant creating our family! 

What was the proposal like? After our daughter was born July 27, 2014 I was still wondering when will he propose? I gave him some guidelines- not on my birthday, not on a holiday and not in front of family or strangers! LOL Dec 18, 2014 Nicholas got on one knee and asked me if I would be by his side for the rest of our lives! He started celebrating I then asked would he like to know my answer LOL I said yes! MInd you I was just literally holding our daughter after nursing her and was getting us ready to visit santa in the Mall for a photo- so he totally caught me off guard.
