Tara Lynn Blrdal Gown | Styled by Blomma Flicka | Vermont Bride Magazine

One of our favorite inspiration features from the new Summer/Fall 2015 edition of Vermont Bride Magazine, is the Something Old, Something Blue fashion spotlight. A dramatic, old-world theme styled by Danika Johnson, of Blomma Flicka, set at the rusticly elegant Samuel Read Hall House in Brownington. Bold patterned walls, charmingly innocent farmhouse character, and a weather-worn barn are the perfect contrast to Danika's lush, colorful bouquet design and the custom gown from Tara Lynn Bridal.

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!

Fenway Wedding Main

Nothing evokes the feeling of summer quite like hot dogs, Cracker Jacks, and baseball. As the snow starts to melt and we gear up for the next season, let your heart warm up with this gorgeous styled shoot from Kelly Cronin Photography. Set in Fenway, our country's oldest baseball stadium, with it's just-worn-enough patina and charming, vintage style, it has all the necessary elements for an iconic event.

A light blue summer suit with shorts paired with a bowtie and navy Keds is a perfect pairing to the bride's short and sleeveless sheer number. The kelly green backdrop of the Green Monster goes perfectly with glittery, gold accessories and who wouldn't love to find this bling as their Cracker Jack prize?

The winter landscape in Vermont can start to look a little monochrome after a while, with snow-covered mountains, trees, and the pale gray, cloudy sky that typically dominates from December through March. To cut through the stark white, we love the idea of using deep, rich jewel tones to add warmth and sparkle to a winter season wedding. Dark purples, reds, studded with glittering gold, are the perfect foil to the ice and frost.

Dark chocolate whoopie pies are a perfect match for delicate gold calligraphy. Lots of shiny, vintage decorations give tabletops luxurious charm and interest. The sage and lime greenery pairs nicely with the more saturated garnet and plum colored flowers. Strings of cafe lights hang as a backdrop and give the entire area a warm glow that will last well into the evening.

Jeannette and Joseph's nature themed wedding was full of enchanting details that blended in beautifully with the breathtaking Lake Elmore landscape. The L.A. based couple chose Vermont for their destination nuptials because of Jeannette's fond childhood vacation memories. They chose butterflies to tie in Joseph's Chinese heritage and birds to honor Jeannette's grandmother, an avid bird watcher and painter, who passed away a few months before their wedding. Here are some other detailes Jeannette shared with us about their big day:

With so many natural waterways, lakes and ponds, it's no wonder that water plays a large part in Vermont weddings. Combine some H2O with hand-hewn post and beams, tree branch details, and a secluded mountaintop location and you pretty much have everything that is wondeful about Vermont in the Summer. Here are some gorgeous inspirational images Vermont Bride photographed, with the help of Stacie Maddox, at The Ponds at Bolton Valley. Lakeside details with rustic, vintage charm, combined with some amazing vendors!

Nothing is more classic that a red, white, and blue color palette. With iconic stars and stripes, it's no wonder that a patriotic themed wedding has been popular for as long as we've been baking apple pies. We here at Vermont Bride wish you and your families a very Happy Fourth of July!

 

Essex-Carnival-1

If you like having fun, games, and pops of bright color, then a carnival themed wedding will be right up your alley. Carnivals evoke an old-fashioned feel of ring-toss, balloons, and strolling under strings of lights. Add in the aroma of fried dough, candy apples, and popcorn - and you have yourself a perfect, fun-filled day. It's no wonder that carnival and fair themed weddings have been popular for many years and are still going strong. There is unlimited color palette potential, as long as you incorporate something bright, bold, and cheerful. And you can make it as casual or elaborate as you want - with custom candy stations, lawn games, fair-inspired appetizers, bunches of balloons, and punchy fabrics.

Something-blue-3

 

The old saying, "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue", still has a lot of meaning to modern-day brides. Fun and meaningful traditions such as these are at the heart of wedding history and give ample room for injecting your own personal spin on things. The color blue is a classic in wedding design and easily coordinates with a myriad of other colors. From elegent to bohemian, the options are endless when starting with blue as your foundation.
