 Modern Urban Wedding Inspiration in Downtown Burlington Vermont | Same Sex Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

With so many rustic, barn Vermont weddings, it can be refreshing to see something a little different - like this contemporary, urban styled event in downtown Burlington. With a hip, modern feel and a bold cobalt blue and orange color palette, we think it fits right in with Burlington's artsy vibe. Marriam Khan, of Just Weddings and The Little Purple Cake Shoppe, and Lindsey at Farmhouse Group Events, collaborated to create the vibrant, fun theme that took place at The Farmhouse Tap and Grill. To check out more photos from this feature, see the Vermont Bride Lookbook, volume 6!

The bold bright colors & textures of locally sourced flowers, in a clean contemporary metal container, paired with the angles and clean lines make a more masculine atmosphere.  Use of metallic colors, like wire on the bout stems also gives it an urban and manly touch. Jamie of Letter10 Creative designed the invitation using 100% cotton paper with a modern lattice design inspired by the couple’s unity rings and customized to feature their initials. A bit of ribbon adds the perfect detail, and coordinated perfectly with the groom’s ties.

With all of the impromptu musical performances and entertainers that frequent downtown Burlington in the summer months, it's the perfect place for a casual reception with a little bit of something for everyone. Enjoy a stroll down the brick street, stopping at art galleries and taking in historical city hall and the church that gives the street it's name.

Mini, bite-sized cupcakes made of red velvet with a cream cheese frosting are tastefully decorated with custom cupcake wraps, hand cut to match the color theme and topped with the couple's initials. Matching cake pops are a fun and delicious favor and go perfectly with the menus and place setting. Both grooms are sporting bold and eye-catching ties from Beau Ties Ltd. The “Gerbera” pattern of the fabric is a soft woven silk. The bow tie is a standard prettied, and the necktie is a standard skinny.

 Vintage Tea Party By The Lake | Romantic Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

When you think of classic, timeless wedding style you probably think of soft, romantic colors and textures. The pink of a budding rose, the delicate ivory of heirloom lace, opulant pearls and sparkling jewels. Those are the exact same ideas that inspired this gorgeous photo shoot from Ashley Largesse Photography. It is one of our favorite features from the Winter/Spring edition of Vermont Bride Magazine, but as with all of our features, we could not fit every amazing photo into the pages of our publication. So without further adieu - here are some of our other favorite images of the beautiful and elegant details from this truly inspiring design.

Fair Isle Fete

 

Fair Isle Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

"Fair Isle" refers to both a style of knitting, but also a tiny island off the northern coast of Scotland. Noted for its charming graphic patterns and colors, Fair Isle is a cozy accent that is equally at home in the wintery lodge or a country garden. The lush mountains of Vermont are the perfect place for recreating the rugged, hilly landscape of the northern British Isles. Add in some fairy-inspired flower crowns, rustic wooden bowls, a soft cable-knit sweater or scarf, and you have the ingredients for a timeless, old-world celebration.

For more gorgeous photos of this feature, check out the Winter/Spring 2016 print edition, availabe for purchase now!

Snowy Pond Winter Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

The weather is finally turning cold and the snow is on it's way to cover the Vermont countryside in a peaceful blanket of white. It's time to cuddle up by the fire with a chunky, knit blanket and a warm cup of cocoa and dream about summer. The time between Christmas and Valentine's Day is also affectionately known as "Engagement Season" - full of romantic proclamations of love and the exciting beginning of life's next chapter. More engagements occur during these two months then at any other point of the year. Funny how the coldest part of the year holds the most warmth for the heart.

We thought it appropriate to share a little sneak peak of one of the features in the Vermont Bride Winter/Spring issue, now available for purchase. It features a serene, snowy pond and a cozy, rustic lodge adorned with winter's finest greenery and some pops of yellow and red to brighten the mood. Candles, hot cocoa, and tasty pastries warm everything up and it's the perfect time to break out the scarves and shawls. And maybe a pair of ice skates, too!
