Essex-Carnival-1

If you like having fun, games, and pops of bright color, then a carnival themed wedding will be right up your alley. Carnivals evoke an old-fashioned feel of ring-toss, balloons, and strolling under strings of lights. Add in the aroma of fried dough, candy apples, and popcorn - and you have yourself a perfect, fun-filled day. It's no wonder that carnival and fair themed weddings have been popular for many years and are still going strong. There is unlimited color palette potential, as long as you incorporate something bright, bold, and cheerful. And you can make it as casual or elaborate as you want - with custom candy stations, lawn games, fair-inspired appetizers, bunches of balloons, and punchy fabrics.

We are in love with the bold, rich colors in this foliage-fueled fantasy design from Sarah Jo Willey. With wood-lined fields, striking fall mountains, and an iconic red barn - Sarah Jo, owner of Creative Muse Floral Design, captures the essence of harvest time in Vermont. Enjoy this preview of all the gorgeousness, and find more from this photo shoot in our Summer/Fall print edition.

Something-blue-3

 

The old saying, "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue", still has a lot of meaning to modern-day brides. Fun and meaningful traditions such as these are at the heart of wedding history and give ample room for injecting your own personal spin on things. The color blue is a classic in wedding design and easily coordinates with a myriad of other colors. From elegent to bohemian, the options are endless when starting with blue as your foundation.

The Kentucky Derby may take place over 900 miles away from Vermont, but that doesn't mean there isn't a trophy cups worth of inspiration that we can find in the iconic style of this beloved, southern event. Our state animal is a horse, after all, and Vermont has a strong history in horse racing. Here are some of our favorite Kentucky Derby inspired wedding images that we hope will sweeten your day.

 

 

We recently had the pleasure of doing an inspiration photo-shoot at Jay Peak Resort in Jay, Vermont. It was early March, but there was still plenty of snow on the mountain to give us the wintery backdrop we were looking for. Spring skiing was in full swing but the breeze still said Winter to us! Our model, Sydney, was a great sport and braved the brisk air for the sake of fashion. She did get to wear a warm and cozy fur shawl (courtesy of Fiori Bridal Boutique, who also provided the gown) for some of the photos, though!
