Modern and Feminine Ballet Wedding Inspiration | Airy, Dreamy Pink and Blue Wedding Design | Vermont Bride Magazine

Initially inspired by the Pantone Colors of the Year, “Serenity” and “Rose Quartz”, this wedding inspiration photo shoot is soft, dreamy, and playful in nature. The soft, feminine pink and powdery blue complement each other so beautifully. Fluid and airy link the art of ballet, the classically modern backdrop of the Olympic Rooftop Pavilion provided a perfect canvas to bring the vision to life. The breezy open air patio gave the Sarah Seven gown from The Dress Theory the most ideal flowy and fluttery feel. Floaty, hanging, and free moving florals and modern details mixed with elegant, vintage feeling props come together with the pinks and blues to create an elegant and dreamy combination.

Sharon & Mike Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Lakeside Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Both Sharon and Mike practically lived at Bolton Valley Resort, but their paths had never crossed until they met online. After a few dates they lost touch for a while, but fate would have it that Mike would run into Sharon snowboarding at Bolton alone one afternoon. He gave her a call that day and the rest is history! Since Vermont is where they met, it was inevitable that it was the place they wanted to celebrate their marriage. Sharon had her heart set for a location on the water and discovered Basin Harbor while flipping through an issue of Vermont Bride. The couple loved that Basin Harbor combined both their love of the water and of the mountains, and it was a true destination location allowing all of their gusts to stay in one place and enjoy the entire weekend together.

Meghan & Chris Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Elegant and Rustic Nature Inspired Wedding at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort | Vermont Bride Magazine

Meghan and Chris both love the outdoors and wanted to incorporate nature into their wedding as much as possible. They fell in love with the relaxed atmosphere at the Mountain Top Inn & Spa, as well as the stunning view of the mountains, and the abundance of activities that their guests would be able to enjoy throughout their weekend long celebration. They also used birch branches in many of the decorations and had a tree potting ritual as part of their ceremony--their guests were asked to sprinkle water onto the soil to help it grow and now the tree is planted in Vermont where the couple can visit it often.

Erin & Paul Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Rustic Mountain Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Erin had no idea that she would meet her future husband when she embarked on her Appalachian Trail thru-hike (hiking the entire trail from Maine to Georgia), but when she met Paul on a section of the trail in Sunfish Pond, New Jersey they swapped emails after eating lunch together. Paul had hiked from Georgia to Maine the year before and was working as a Ridge Runner on the trail. He met up with Erin for one of her final weeks of her hike and they had their first date. The Sunfish Pond section of the trail would later have even more significance as it is the spot where Erin proposed to Paul! She convinced him to go on an impromptu hike on their way to Vermont for Thanksgiving and surprised him with handmade wooden engagement rings.

Erin and Paul decided on Vermont for the location of their wedding because it fit the bill for the outdoor, mountain wedding they wanted. It also helped that Erin’s parent’s home was the perfect location to hold it. Included in their invitations were prayer flags, which they asked their guests to do something creative with and mail them back. The couple then took the flags and hung them in the trees at the site of their ceremony.

Rick & Megan Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Tyler Place Family Resort | Vermont Bride Magazine

Megan and Rick initially met at a cafe at the University of Vermont, but it wasn't until Rick invited Megan boating on Malletts Bay that they sparked a connection. Their engagement was picture-perfect, with champagne by the fire at the Von Trapp Lodge in Stowe, followed by a horse drawn sleigh ride at sunset where Rick got down on one knee in the sleigh and proposed. The couple already knew the perfect place to hold their wedding—The Tyler Place Family Resortwhich is owned by Rick’s family. Their guests were able to stay on the property in the resort's cabins, where they were greeted by welcome bags filled with Vermont organic products.

The Tyler Place Resort offered a beautiful backdrop to their celebration, which included an outdoor ceremony under an arbor, and signature cocktails and appetizers on the lawn. Their advice for other couples planning their wedding: “Keep it simple and don’t spend more than you can afford.  People will remember the good times and human interactions, not the expensive items littering your wedding site.

Bekki & Alex Real New Hampshire Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine | New England Wedding Inspiration

Alex and Bekki discovered some interesting commonalities when they met at a bar in Haverhill, Massachusettes. Bekki is a high school ceramics teacher and Alex happens to enjoy ceramics as a hobby. They were also surprised to learn that Bekki’s apartment was located right next to Alex’s parent’s house. It was not long after their first meeting that they went out for their first date. 

On a trip to Bekki’s family’s lake house in Maine, Alex surprised her with his grandmother’s engagement ring in a handmade birch box one early morning on the front porch as she was reading. They decided to have their wedding in Bekki’s home town of Lyme, New Hampshire and they knew the are would be beautiful in the fall. Being a teacher herself, Bekki liked the idea of getting married in an old school house and the Lyme Academy Building had a wonderful old charm- plus enough space to comfortably fit all of their guests. The nearby Dartmouth Skiway had a post and beam interior that they both loved, plus a beautiful overlook of the mountain from the large deck.

Their color palette of slate blue, orange, and cream was perfect for a fall harvest theme. They had gorgeous centerpieces of pumpkins, gourds, bittersweet, and vines. Bekki’s mother made table runners with sunflowers on them and Bekki created ceramic acorns for decorations that doubled as favors. They used names of New Hampshire mountains for the different tables. Their love of New England was apparent and their wedding perfectly blended into the fall landscape.

This gorgeous indigo and silver inspiration is one of our favorite features of the Summer/Fall 2016 issue of Vermont Bride magazine.

Originating in India, it also has the distinction of being one of the world's first widely used dyes for fabrics and textiles. With such an exotic history, it is no surprise that indigo pairs well with lustrous and sparkly silver. The cool tones of silver cut through the depth of indigo for a balance and contrast that is elegant and regal.
