Stacy & Russ Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Intimate and Small Wedding at a Victorian Inn | Vermont Bride Magazine

Stacy and Russ knew they had something special from the moment they met at a local tea shop. They soon fell into a familiar and comfortable pattern of sharing their life and love together and eventually were married in a small, initimate wedding at Back Inn Time, a classy, Victorian inn in Saint Albans. Here is what Stacy shared with us about her and Russ' relationship and how they planned their wedding:

We met online, through a website called OK Cupid. The site gives you a ton of questions to answer and evaluate, and they use that data to help you identify people you might be compatible with. Russ messaged me one night, and we chatted for a while, and kept chatting for a few days after that. When we decided to meet up in person, I suggested we meet at Dobra Tea. It was close to home for me, so I could walk their easily, and it’s not too noisy or full of drunk people, so I figured it would be a place we could actually talk and get to know one another. We ended up drinking tea and talking to one another until they were closing the shop around us. On the way out, he asked if I would want to go out again, and actually made plans for later that week. At the risk of sounding like every cheesy love story ever told, I felt like that night was really the start of something special.

The first time I saw his apartment was a few weeks later, and I walked in, and immediately noticed that he had owls everywhere. I’ve been collecting (obsessed with) owl things for years, so it felt a little spooky, but in a good way. 

Carie & Michael Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Rustic Elegant Barn Wedding | Intimate Wedding at Vermont Inn | Vermont Bride Magazine

On Carie’s first day at her new job in Newark, New Jersey, Mike promised to show her the beautiful parts of the state. He chose to first take her kayaking in Sea Bright and the pair started dating soon after. Carie is originally from Vermont and it was on a trip back there for Thanksgiving that the couple were planning on an overnight stay at the Red Clover Inn on their way to Saint Albans. Mike had originally planned on proposing that night, then sharing their big news over the holiday, but a snowstorm derailed his plans and they had to drive straight to Saint Albans without stopping. With a new reservation for the night after Thanksgiving, Mike proposed while they were enjoying the hot tub under the stars. Then they promptly celebrated by jumping out of the hot tub and making snow angels in the fresh snow!

Both Carie and Mike have high stress jobs yet always feel an immediate sense of calm, freshness, and serenity when they cross over the border into Vermont. Perhaps they were also swayed by the pictures of beautiful, rustic, chic barn weddings in Vermont Bride magazine, which confirmed to them that they must have their wedding in the Green Mountain state. The Red Clover Inn had sentimental value to Carie and Mike, plus the Inn features a quant, red barn, and a superb restaurant and awesome staff, making it the perfect choice for the reception.

Carie chose lavender as the theme for the wedding, as it has mind, body, and spiritual benefits in addition to a pleasant aroma and a pretty purple flower. There were shades of purple in the decor, hand drawn lavender on the invitations, and a lavender infused frosting on the cake. Since lavender promotes calmness and tranquility it was perfect for a laid back atmosphere during the entire celebration. Carie and Mike wanted a smaller wedding for a more intimate setting. Their friends and family mostly stayed at the Inn and were able to celebrate for an entire weekend of events. 

Carie and Mike’s advice for other couples planning a wedding is: “Plan the wedding that is in your heart and not the wedding you think others expect of you. Relax and enjoy the day. What really matters is that you are marrying “the one” and the people most important to you are there to celebrate with you. What more could you ask for?”

Suzanne and Joe Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Themed Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Suzanne and Joe wanted to keep their wedding as "Vermont" as possible, working with many amazing local vendors to bring their vision to life. From the cozy rooms at the Inn at Weathersfield, to the antler centerpieces (a nod to Joe's passion for hunting), their efforts resulted in a hearfelt and home spun celebration full of Vermont charm. The menu at their rehearsal dinner and the reception was mostly sourced from Vermont, and they gave each guest a small burlap bag filled with amazing locally made products. Suzanne and Joe are both from Vermont and could not have imagined having their wedding anywhere else.

Jessica and Justin Cape Cod Wedding Inspiration | Beachside Wedding and Clambake | Vermont Bride Magazine

In case the snow is starting to get to you, we thought it would be nice to share a sunny, warm celebration on the beach! With softly flowing beach grass and a quintessential East Coast stone staircase leading to a ceremony overlooking the Atlantic, we hope Jessica and Justin's wedding warms your heart as much as it did ours. Jessica and Justin's casual, chic celebration on Cape Cod featured a private Polish ceremony with their parents followed by a ceremony on the beach overlooking the ocean. What else would be fitting for an oceanside, Cape Cod wedding then a traditional Cape Cod Clambake dinner?

Elizabeth and Heather Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Same Sex Marriage | Intimate Bed and Breakfast Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

It seems fitting that Heather and Elizabeth first met while working at a bridal gown store - a fitting omen to their future. Another magical omen occured on the night Heather proposed to Elizabeth, at a Michael Buble concert. What started out as a bad experience with fraudulent tickets turned into the perfect proposal experience, with a cannon firing off red and white hearts exactly as Elizabeth said yes! The couple chose to have their destination wedding in Vermont since it was not legal for them to marry in their home state, and Elizabeth has always loved the East Coast.

The Readmore Inn had everything they were looking for in terms of accommodations and ambiance, and they chose the theme of "Books" to play along with the name of the Inn. Simple and family oriented, everyone stayed with them at the Inn and they enjoyed spending time with those closest to them every morning at breakfast. They shared a bridesmaid and Elizabeth had their florist create a ring corsage for her to carry instead of the traditional bouquet.

Some of their favorite moments from the celebration included;

  • How beautiful the Popolo was for their reception, including vases of flowers that the owner took upon himself to place on each table.
  • The most amazing carrot cake they hadd ever eaten - a naket carrot cake with salted caramel drizzled on top - made by the Popolo.
  • Being able to get dressed up the next day for a second photo shoot with Cricket Polis of Polis Photography, who offered to do that in place of her usual engagement photos since Elizabeth and Heather were from out of state.

Elizabeth and Heather's advice for other couples planning their wedding is; "Make it simple and make you and your partner the priority."

Rachel & Michael Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Grafton Inn Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Rachel and Michael met in Cape Town, South Africa, while on a study abroad program in law school. Rachel had almost decided to not attend the program as her father had passed away right before she left. Her family and friends encouraged her to go, despite her sadness, and now she is ever so grateful she did. Fate would have it that the two would meet and, within days, they were inseperable. They studied together, explored the country together - even dove with great white shark together! They enjoyed the trip so much that they decided to extend it, renting a car and driving along the South African coast. Eventually the day came that they had to return to their respective law schools, which were far apart in different cities. But they were determined to make the long distance work and many plane trips, phone calls, and emails later - they were finally ready to tie the knot. Because their relationship had been scattered across the country, it only made sense to Rachel and Micael that they should have a destination wedding - in Vermont!

Rachel & Michael Real Vermont Wedding | Woodstock Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

Despite several attempts by their friends to set them up, Rachel and Mike only knew each other as acquaintances for a few years. Finally at a bar in Washington DC on Saint Patrick’s Day, Rachel’s favorite holiday, they agreed to date. It was another of Rachel’s favorites- this time a place- where Mike popped the question. Outside the Plaza in New York City, Mike convinced Rachel to take a walk to the fountains. Rachel was convinced he was just trying to keep her from her favorite bar, but seconds later he surprised her with a ring. All she remembers after that is the cheering and flashing of cameras from nearby tourists.

Rachel attended Law School in Vermont and her family frequently vacationed in Woodstock. Since they both wanted a location that would feel like a getaway for their guests and themselves, Woodstock was the perfect choice. They also loved that all of the festivities were accessible just a few steps away from the front door of the Woodstock Inn.

Once their guests arrived they were able to park their cards and forget about needing transportation for the rest of the weekend. The Woodstock Inn was a great gathering space so their guests could relax, catch up, and then go out to pursue fall activities in town. It was hard to leave the Inn without bumping into one of their guests, which is exactly the way Rachel and Mike wanted it.

They had a color palette of navy, gold, blush, and silver. To incorporate silver into the table settings they used the bride’s family’s collection of silver. The light from the candles reflecting off of the silver all around the room created a beautiful, warm glow. They also represented Mike’s upbringing in New Hampshire and upstate New York by using a birch tree they cut down from his family’s property in New Hampshire. They used the birch tree for centerpieces, place cards, and candle holders. Mike even carved a design from their Save The Dates into the candle holders. Instead of having many smaller tables, Rachel wanted two large tables to have as many people sitting together as possible. Covered with blush colored tulle, there was one table representing the bride’s family and friends, and a second table representing the groom’s family and friends. 

Rachel and Mike worked together, making all of the planning decisions together, and trying to cut through all of the wedding clichés. Their families were also very involved with planning and executing the wedding. Rachel’s grandparents were unable to attend due to illness, but they took time out from their reception to FaceTime with them in Oklahoma. It ended up being the last time they would talk with her grandfather and they will always cherish being able to include them on their wedding day.

Some of their other favorite moments from the weekend include being able to have a final toast with friends at Longtrail Brewery on Sunday, where they were able to sit around and chat about all the memorable moments of the weekend. Also, their friends Kathryn Zaremba, who was Broadway’s Annie Warlocks as a child, and her husband Jeremy Ney, a classically trained pianist, performed for their first dance as well as the Father/Daughter dance and the Mother/Son dance.

Rachel and Mike’s advice for other couples:  “Determine what is important to you and then cut out the rest.  You probably won’t remember how much effort you spent on details that don’t matter to you or don’t reflect your personality.”

Sarah & Michael | Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Stowe, Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

Sarah and Michael may have fallen in love in Florida, but when it came time to plan their wedding they wanted to have it in Sarah's home state-Vermont. After touring the Stowehof, in Stowe, they knew the cozy and welcoming feel of the inn was exactly what they were looking for. It also helped that it is surrounded by the beautiful mountains. Their wedding celebration was fun, cozy, and carefree - just like their personalities.

It was important to them both that they honored their families. The talit over the chuppah was from Mike's relatives and Sarah's hairpeice was originally worn by her great-grandmother when she was married. Their advice to other couples planning their wedding; "Take your time and follow your heart!"

Cyndie & Josh Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Blueberry Hill Inn, Goshen Vermont | Rustic, Country Fall Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

After Cyndie and Josh were put in charge of the same account at the ad agency they worked at—she was the project manager, he was the art directorthey could feel a special connection. Countless laugh filled chats, long hours battling deadlines, and after work beers, they were officially more than just work associates. Both Josh and Cyndie love adventures and spending time in nature, so it was a very special place that Josh chose to propose. Lake Pemaquid Campground in Maine is where Cyndie, her father, and sister have been camping for the last twenty-six years. When she and Josh rented a cabin there for a relaxing weekend getaway Josh took the opportunity to propose on the beach of their usual site, number 41, with the lake and fall leaves surrounding them.

Originally the couple actually assumed they would marry in Maine, but recently both of their sisters were married at their childhood spots. Wanting to keep those locations special to them, Cyndie and Josh decided to officially start their life together in a place that reflected them as a couple. Their first trip together was to Burlington, Vermont - where neither had been before. They spent the weekend exploring the town’s boutiques, artists, and restaurants, and were instantly hooked. Since then the couple have traveled to Vermont many times, so it was a natural choice to host their wedding there.

Cyndie and Josh describe themselves as simple and casual, so they took to the internet in search of small, rustic venues for their wedding. They spent a busy two-day trip exploring six different venues, the last being Blueberry Hill in Goshen, Vermont. They instantly knew it was the one. It was the perfect combination of casual yet beautiful, rustic yet updated, charming yet elegant. The fact that the inn also featured a classically trained chef, and a charming resident pug named Wheezer, clinched it for them.

Their theme of rustic, country, with fall colors went perfectly with the feel of the venue. With the beautiful green mountains in the backdrop, they chose small, simple details that would accentuate the natural beauty around them. They scoured yard sales for mismatched antique dinner and salad plates and hand made centerpieces of fall flowers in mason jars. In fact, everything from the card box to the cake stand and popcorn bar featured wooden accents that were hand crafted by Cyndie and Josh. Their favors of s’mores kits with raspberry, caramel, and coconut marshmallows rounded out the woodsy theme.

Their wedding reflected their crafty side, but the piece de resistance was a fully functioning 80s style arcade, which they completely refurbished and resurfaced with rustic scrap wood pieces stamped with their favorite childhood video games. At the end of the night their guests enjoyed a mouth-watering display of donuts instead of cake, and a s’mores filled bonfire.

Cyndie and Josh’s advice for other couples: “Don’t be afraid to be different. We made a LOT of choices that other people thought were untraditional or just plain odd. You might start to doubt those decisions as the day comes closer, but WAIT. Don’t lose sight of the fact that everything that will make your day unique about YOU as a couple will be the very same things that people will remember the most.”
