Avery & Kensley | Bolton, Vermont

Avery & Kensley | Real Vermont Wedding | The Ponds at Bolton Valley | Vermont Bride Magazine

Avery and Kensley initially met and started dating in Connecticut, but Kensley soon moved to Burlington and Vermont quickly became Avery’s home away from home as well. Vermont is where they fell in love and so they knew it was where they would say “I do.” Even before they became engaged they dreamed of the perfect Vermont Wedding. Avery even began collecting Vermont Bride magazines for inspiration.

All of their favorite memories of falling in love in Vermont was the inspiration for their theme. Their favorite season, summer, the picturesque green mountains, local gourmet food, and native Vermont flowers all played an important role. A cool, natural color palette of greens, gray, with pops of white and purple worked well with the rustic vibe of The Ponds interior. The strength of the tree, with its branches twisting together to form stronger limbs, has always been important to Avery and Kensley, so they used the idea of the Tree of Love throughout their wedding.
