Glenna & Jon Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Winter Barn Wedding in Waitsfield Vermont | Winter/Spring 2017 Issue | Vermont Bride Magazine

Glenna and Jon had one of those rare, yet fabulous, winter Vermont weddings. It takes a special someone to want to have their wedding during the cold and snowy months in the Green Mountains, but since she was a young girl, Glenna had always dreamt of a winter engagement. The snow, the cold, and the rustic charm of the winter all seemed so romantic! So, in early June with a newly purchased engagement ring burning a hole in his pocket, Jon was confronted with a logistical problem. With the summer heat rising, Jon quickly thought of a plan. Jon contacted the hotel in DC that he stayed at during the weekend of his first date with Glenna and made special arrangements with them for the big day.

When the day came, Jon drove Glenna down to DC ostensibly to have dinner with friends. Jon explained that he had reserved the hotel room so that they could celebrate their 2 year anniversary in the city. Upon entering the room, Glenna realized that there was much more to the surprise. Jon had arranged for the hotel to decorate the room in a winter wonderland theme, thus creating the winter engagement Glenna had always wanted, despite the fact that it was the middle of the summer. A Christmas tree, garland, and fake snow covered the hotel suite along with a dusting of rose petals, pine cones, and presents wrapped for Christmas. On the floor, white rose petals spelled out the words, "Will you marry me?". When Glenna turned around to look at Jon he was on bended knee with an engagement ring featuring the center stone from her grandmother's engagement ring...And the rest, as they say, is history!
