Colorful Farm Fresh Flower Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

Weddings are the perfect opportunity to show your true color personality. Don't be afraid to bust out the vibrant, bold hues that are usually too loud for a fancy event. Have fun with your color pairings and feel free to break old-school rules about which hues go together. This bright and cheery combination of pink, orange, yellow, and purple is balanced with crisp white linens and plates, while the earthy tones of wood chargers and chairs highlight the natural element.

These gorgeous inspiration photos, from our Summer/Fall 2016 edition of Vermont Bride are overflowing with color! Just about every hue of the rainbow is represented here and it is an elegant showcase of Vermont's floral bounty. To see more images from this inspiration shoot, pick up a copy of the Summer/Fall Vermont Bride today! Available in grocery stores, Barns N Noble, and other fine retailers throughout New England, as well as on our website!

Spring Garden Wedding Inspiration | Gay Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

We are in love with the gorgeous and stunning colors in this greenhouse garden inspired wedding photo shoot from Jaclyn Schmitz Photography. With vibrant reds, oranges, pinks, and purples as a backdrop there is really no need for more decoration. Although some vintage Franciscan Ware dishes definitely add an elegant touch to the already ethereal surroundings. Spring and summer in Vermont features a plethora of lush flora and this is a perfect example of how to use Mother Nature to do your decorating for you!

The lovely brides features in this same-sex photo shoot are wearing different, but equally beautiful, gowns from Fiori Bridal Boutique. The intricate beadwork and lace details gives that mimic the floral surroundings. A lovely pairing of gowns that are similar but each a work of art in their own right. Their soft and romantic hair is also the perfect match for the sweet garden setting.

Love Sets Sail | Wedding Inspiration | Nautical Lake Ideas | Navy Blue and Yellow Color Palette | Anchors and Chevron Stripes

For the next week we will be showing you some sneak peaks of the inspiration features from this issue. Today we are starting with one of our favorites from Sarah Jo Willey, of Creative Muse Floral Design, and Jackie Watson, of Jaclyn Watson Events, and photographed by Paul Reynolds. It is an elegant, nautical design set on the shores of Lake Champlain. With charming white sail boats in the background, and the sparkly blue waters of the lake, and a perfect combination of navy blue stripes and sunny, yellow accents.

Some of our favorite details are the mini messages-in-a-bottle that sever as the place cards for the guests; the eye-catching anchor adorned bread plates; and the fun lemon accents that tie everything together, from the signature cocktail to the centerpiece arrangement.

Alex & Doug | Cape Cod Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

Doug and Alex met during summer orientation at Chatham Bars Inn, where they were both working on their summer break from Hobart and William Smith Colleges. It was Chatham Bars Inn that brought them together so when they got engaged in October 2013 there was no need to venue shop! What Doug and Alex loved about April in Chatham is that their family and friends were able to truly enjoy the beauty of Chatham and Chatham Bars Inn without the hustle and bustle of the summer traffic and tourism. The views from the Main Inn are unbeatable, clear views of the ocean, seals on the sandbar and sunset! Alex wanted bright, cheery spring flowers, lots of tulips, cherry blossoms, garden roses and of course, peonies!

The bridal party consisted of all family; Alex's two sisters, her twin brother's fiancé, and her two sisters-in-law made up the bridal party. Doug’s brother was the best man and the groomsmen were Doug’s brother-in-law, two cousins, and Alex's twin brother. The champagne bridesmaid dresses and classic black tuxes were classic Cape Cod. Doug, an avid fisherman and a licensed boat captain spends most of his weekends fishing the waters surrounding Cape Cod and the islands, so they knew they had to go out on CBI’s boat, The Bartender, for some formal photos. Alex and Doug mingled with friends and family over Champagne & Cranberries and Dark & Stormy’s in the South Lounge, and then carry over to STARS for the reception where they literally danced the night away. It was the most perfect evening at their favorite place in the world which will forever hold a special place in their hearts.
