Lindsay & Finn Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Mountain Top Inn and Resort Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Vermont is a place that is very dear to both Finn and Lindsay. Finn grew up there and over the last several years it has become a second home to Lindsay. Plus you can’t beat the beautiful, natural backdrop! The couple wanted to share their favorite spot with Lindsay’s family and all of their friends. It was important that their guests could stay on property and have plenty to do together, since most would be coming from out of town. The Mountain Top Inn & Resort had all of the amenities, and the breathtaking vistas, that they were looking for. Their entire wedding weekend was held on site, from the rehearsal dinner down by the lake, to a Sunday farewell brunch. Their guests enjoyed horseback riding, playing tennis, walking the trails, and even skeet shooting. Not only is the Mountain Top Inn beautiful, but it is practically a “summer camp for adults,” as Lindsay puts it. From s’mores around the fire pit to sipping drinks by the pool—there was something for everyone.

To read more of Lindsay and Finn's love story and to see more photos from their wedding, check out the Winter/Spring 2017 issue of Vermont Bride Magazine, now available for purchase in select retailers throughout New England or on our website.

Laura & Patrick Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Basin Harbor Club Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Laura lived in Vermont her entire life, before moving to Nashville for college, and had brought Patrick there for many trips to visit her family. They both love Vermont in the fall and after Laura saw the wedding arch at Basin Harbor Club, she knew it was the place they should get married. Their families were deeply involved with the wedding planning–Laura’s sister was Maid of Honor, Patrick’s brother was Best Man, Laura’s brothers walked her down the aisle and read passages at the wedding, and her father officiated the ceremony. Right before she put on her wedding gown, Laura’s Aunt brought her a gift from her greatgrandmother. It was a bracelet that her great-grandfather had made for her great-grandmother many years ago. Laura also used the ring pillow both her mother and grandmother had used in their weddings. One of their favorite details from their wedding also was crafted by a family member. Laura’s sister created custom table numbers which featured a photo of Laura and Patrick from that age. The photos of them as babies were adorable and the ones from awkward middle school years provided lots of laughter and entertainment!

Kellie & Steven Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Space Themed Wedding | Storm Troopers | NASA Astronauts | Woodstock, Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

After Kellie’s parents built a home in Queechee, Vermont, Kellie and Steven have enjoyed numerous relaxing visits as a reprieve to their normal lives in New York City. The area always relaxes and rejuvenates them with an abundance of nature, fresh air, and starry skies. After they became engaged, the couple knew they needed to share this experience with all of their friends and family. Space exploration is an important passion to Kellie, both personally and professionally, so it felt natural to incorporate it into their wedding. A former NASA astronaut and Space Station Commander officiated the ceremony and they included Storm Troopers during the recessional for a bit of fun and lightheartedness. “Starry Night” was the theme for the reception, with lots of twinkling lights and orbs throughout the tent.

Katie & Ben | Shelburne, Vermont

 

Katie & Ben Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Lake Champlain Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Ben and Katie believe that fate was trying to bring them together for years. Both grew up in Vermont and they both attended and graduated from UVM the same year, yet somehow never met. After college, Katie worked for a while at Shearer Acura/Audi and VW, which Ben’s family owns, and he even started working there a few months after Katie left, yet they still did not meet. Finally a mutual friend invited Katie for a dinner with her former coworkers and Ben was there as well. They talked for hours that evening and six months later Ben gave Katie his number and asked her out on a date. Ben’s parent’s home overlooks Lake Champlain and was their immediate choice for hosting their celebration. It was also the perfect backdrop for their romantic, whimsical lakeside wedding theme in blushes, corals, gold, ivory, and green.

Kamala & Amr | Essex, Vermont

 

Kamala & Amr Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Colorful Indian Wedding | Essex Resort and Spa | Vermont Bride Magazine

Kamala and Amr had a gorgeously, darmatic Indian themed wedding featuring a bold color palette of deep raspberry, purple, and gold. Rich tapestries, known as saris, were draped over the rafters in the atrium which perfectly captured the essence of their theme and gave an elegant and dramatic touch to the room. Each table was covered with exquisitely colored linens and unique candle holders that are typically used in Indian weddings. Kamala and Amr’s favorite moments were from their ceremony-the unity sand ceremony, vows, and readings created a beautiful and amazing sequence of events that reflected their deep love for each other and perfectly combined their personalities. Sharing those moments with all of their guests made the whole day magical.
