Janie & Blake | Manchester, Vermont

Janie & Blake | Real Vermont Wedding | The Hildene Manchester, Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine


On a rainy night in March, Janie and Blake were grabbing cocktails with friends in Manhattan. Their eyes met from across the room and Blake came over to introduce himself and they have been together ever since. Fast forward to another rainy day, this time in Vermont, Blake and Janie had attempted to tour the Hildene mansion but were thwarted by the rain and returned to her parent’s home in Winhall. As they ran to the porch for cover, Blake got down on one knee and popped the question.

Janie and Blake equally love the mountains of Vermont and the outdoors, and after they visited Hildene, this time without the rain, they both knew it was the perfect place to exchange their vows. Wanting to respect the natural beauty of the gardens at the mansion, the couple kept their color palette true to the surrounding flora with shades of green, pink, orange, and white. Gold metallic and mercury glass added some sparkle and shine to the cocktail hour and reception.
