Enchanted Forest Wedding Inspiration | Nature Lover Flowers and Moss | Pink and Green Wedding Color Palette

We love this fresh take on an ethereal wedding with an enchanted forest vibe from Kaemere Photography and Design. Cascading displays of brightly colored roses and tons of moss drape over the scene, which is lush and green with natural elements perfect for any fairytale fan or nature lover. A deer skull adds a unique and unexpected element amid all of the delicate roses. Even a whimsical bicycle is decked out with moss and flowers! Looking at these beautifully vivid photos you can almost smell the pine needles and feel the breeze rustling through the trees.

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.

Kristin & Walter Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Lakeside Elegant Black Tie Wedding | Highgate Springs, Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

Kristin and Walter, who goes by Woody, are avid travelers and they often take little weekend getaways when their schedule allows it. One such weekend, they headed to Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, for one such trip. After pushing through the jet lag Saturday morning, Kristin was ready to take a nap but Woody insisted they meet up with a tour group he had already paid for. As they stood waiting on a stunning bridge in the middle of Amsterdam, they spent a couple of minutes just taking in the beauty all around them. Kristin started to suspect there really was no tour group coming and then suddenly Woody got down on one knee and proposed! He had even arranged for a photographer to capture the entire thing and then they had an hour long engagement shoot around the city.

Kristin spent the first ten years of her life living in Vermont and even after her family moved to Florida they often vacationed at a summer camp in Highgate Springs. The family lake house is a beautiful spot and perfect for Kristin and Woody to hold their wedding. Having their celebration in a place that held so many childhood memories, set on a beautiful cliff overlooking the lake, was the perfect fit for the couple. The weather was gorgeous and every detail came together better than they had imagined. It was an intimate gathering of their closest friends and family with a balance of their love of the outdoors and Vermont, but still formal and elegant. 

Some of their favorite moments happen to have stemmed from mishaps. After all of the flowers died due to a heatwave, Kristin and her bridesmaids went out into the nearby fields and picked buckets of wildflowers. The flowers ended up being more beautiful than Kristin had imagined. While lighting off their wish lanterns some became caught in the trees. There was a brief panic that they would catch the trees on fire, but they eventually floated away in a beautiful display. The lanterns floated across the lake and into the water, which made for a stunning sight for all of their guests.
