Julianne & Jim Maine Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

Julianne and Jim had the kind of wedding that leaves you feeling happy. Maybe it was the sunshine or the springtime flowers, or maybe it was all the beautiful country setting at a barn in Maine. Or perhaps it was Julianne and Jim themselves, their love radiating to everyone around them. Despite their frequent time apart, due to Jim's position as a captain and pilot in the US Air Force, they have the kind of closeness and connection that comes from true love and respect for one another.

Despite the forecast of 100% rain, the skies magically were blue and sunny for their outdoor ceremony. The ethereal rays of sunshine illuminating the lovely and romantic flowers that were in abundance. It was New England springtime at it's best!

Lauren & Justin | Real Vermont Wedding | The Round Barn, Warren, Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

We love the rustic, woodsy details of Lauren and Justin's wedding at the Round Barn in Warren. Lauren and Justin chose Vermont for their celebration after enjoying countless weekends skiing in the Green Mountains. The soft, green foliage mixed with weather-worn wood, and a touch of moss, and of course beautiful flowers - it was truly a country fairytale held in a charming barn. How much more "Vermont" can you get than that?

Maria & Justin | Real Vermont Wedding | Rustic Winter Barn Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

The chill of the winter snow did not dampen the warm, heartfelt mood at Maria and Justin's festive wedding at The Mountain Top Inn & Resort. The softly falling snow only added to the romantic and cozy ambiance of the rustic-barn-in-the-woods feeling. Snowflakes and skis adorned the venue and the newly wed couple took an intimage and magical ride through the snowy trees on a horse-drawn sleigh.

Valerie & Andrew's Vermont Barn Wedding | Real Love Stories | Vermont Bride Magazine

Valerie and Andrew's wedding was full of unique and amazing country details, like antique door frames propped in the field as an entrance to the ceremony, or a rustic barn board surface set up as a guest book where the guests could draw or write messages to the happy couple. The bright yellow sunflowers popped against the deep, blue sky and the rustic, country soiree went on well into the night.

Rustic Fall Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

It's hard to believe that fall is just around the corner, but soon the leaves of the green mountains will start to explode in vibrant shades or red, orange, and yellow. Autumn in Vermont is truly one of the most beautiful sights, so it is no wonder that many couples choose this time of year to have their wedding. Rustic red barns, exposed beams, candles, and festive pumpkins are just some of the elements that make this fall wedding the perfect inspiration for foliage season.

Laura and Jeremy used lanterns and votive candles to add warmth to the chilly September air, and the color palette of burnt orange, sage green, and apple red brightened the rustic, barn venue. Chinese lanterns lifting off at the end of the evening were a festive and unique alternative to the more summery sparkler send-off.

Dayna & Brad | Dairy Barn Vermont Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

For their wedding, Dayna and Brad wanted the experience to be fun and lighthearted, with personal meaning behind most every aspect. Thanks to the hard work of their family, artist friends, and wedding vendors everything came together beautifully. The venue held exceptional importance to them, as it was a century old barn that Dayna's grandfather and brothers built as their first family dairy farm, milking 12 head of cows. Her father and his six siblings were born at the farm house, and her father farmed with his dad there and at the newer “big farm” his whole life. Overlooking Lake Willoughby and the mountains surrounding it makes the “Little Farm” such a perfect setting for a romantic natural wedding.

Since it had been used for storage for roughly 60 years, it was quite the undertaking to ready the barn for the wedding. The floor and loft needed to be gutted and rebuilt and it took most of the summer, and many helping hands, to complete. Now, with a new floor, polished posts and beams, fixed roof, and new windows, this gorgeous space with an amazing view made a wonderful backdrop for their wedding. They also fixed up the old milk house and renovated it into the “Milk House Bar” where drinks were served.

Angela & Shawn's Wedding | VermontBrideMagazine.com

Angela and Shawn's wedding was full of handmade details, from Angela's sister sewing and crafting much of the decor, to her mom picking and canning jam for the favors. It was a gorgeously sunny and blue skied day, gathered with their closest friends and family at The Old Lantern in Charlotte. Their picture-perfect moment was topped with stunning view of Lake Champlain and timeless photos taken on the covered bridge nearby. It simply could not have been any more idyllic!

Julia and Dave's modern, country style could not have more accurately reflected the beautiful nature of Vermont. With sweeping mountains for a backdrop, and drooping willow trees embracing their outdoor ceremony, Vermon't most glorious season of summer was very apparent. We especially love their watercolored scenic landscape invitation and the warm glow of rustic lanterns adorning every nook and cranny of their charming, old-world barn reception.

Real Wedding | Gina & Tim

GinaTim Main2

Gina and Tim frequently "get away from it all" at Gina's father's log cabin in the woods of Vermont, and they knew they wanted their friends and family to have that same feeling at their June wedding. Their whimsical, rustic celebration started with an intimate ceremony under a covered bridge. With the sound of the babbling brook beneath them, and those closest to their hearts around them, Gina and Tim exchanged "I dos". The elegant Hermitage Inn provided the perfect backdrop for the rest of the day's festivities. Here are some highlights from Gina;
