Abbie & Dan Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Vintage Romantic Wedding at The Ponds at Bolton Valley | Vermont Bride Magazine

Abbie and Dan met during their freshman year at Ithaca College in history class, where Abbie would sit next to Dan and nervously try to start conversations with him. It took a few years, but eventually Dan finally asked her out on a date and soon the pair were inseperable. After a year and eight months of long distance dating between Boston and New York City, Dan moved to Boston to be with Abbie. Their wedding at The Ponds at Bolton Valley was full of romantic, elegant flowers in shades of pink and cream, and loaded with gorgeous vintage details. You can read their entire Lobe Sotry and see more photos from their wedding in the Summer/Fall 2017 issue of Vermont Bride magazine, available for pre-order now on our website and available on newsstands throughout New England starting the second week of June.

Spring Garden Wedding Inspiration | Gay Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

We are in love with the gorgeous and stunning colors in this greenhouse garden inspired wedding photo shoot from Jaclyn Schmitz Photography. With vibrant reds, oranges, pinks, and purples as a backdrop there is really no need for more decoration. Although some vintage Franciscan Ware dishes definitely add an elegant touch to the already ethereal surroundings. Spring and summer in Vermont features a plethora of lush flora and this is a perfect example of how to use Mother Nature to do your decorating for you!

The lovely brides features in this same-sex photo shoot are wearing different, but equally beautiful, gowns from Fiori Bridal Boutique. The intricate beadwork and lace details gives that mimic the floral surroundings. A lovely pairing of gowns that are similar but each a work of art in their own right. Their soft and romantic hair is also the perfect match for the sweet garden setting.

Fall Inspiration

Fall is a gorgeous time of the year in Vermont, when the mountains get to show off their colors and the temperature cools enough for warm, knit sweaters and bonfires in the evening. Rich hues of red, orange, yellow, and brown are everywhere and the fruits from the labors of summer are harvested. It's no wonder that it is many of the locals' favorite season. Summer may have the distinction of being "wedding season", but there is something about a fall wedding in Vermont that conjurs cozy, romantic thoughts. Today, we put together some inspiring fall images to get you excited for the cooler weather.

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.
