Fall-Colors

Warm, cozy, crisp, vibrant - these are all words that describe Fall in Vermont. We gathered some of our favorite images from this season to inspire your Fall wedding planning!

Top-Left | How inviting are those brightly colored adirondack chairs overlooking the lake, at Basin Harbor Club? We could sit and gaze at the foliage all day long.

Top-Right | Deep red berries paired with pure white flower buds and wrapped in twine make a perfect Fall boutonniere, designed by Sarah's Weddings by Betty's Flower Basket.

Middle | Simple and elegant jewelry set in beautiful pewter adds just the right amount of shine to pair with a rich Fall color palette. From Danforth Pewter.

Bottom-Right | Instead of a traditional cake, add some home-spun charm to your reception with warm apple pie a la mode. This presentation brings it up a notch with an intense caramel drizzle. From Have Your Cake Catering.

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.

Alicia & Kyle

Alicia-Kyle-Main

When we first laid eyes on Alicia and Kyle's bold and colorful wedding, we couldn't take our eyes off the vibrant and unique details. Alicia, an artist, was inspired by a CMYK color palette and went for funky and unique touches that she could DIY. The result? A one-of-a-kind celebration full of eye candy, proving that you don't need a huge budget to achieve some wow factor. Here is what Alicia had to say about the wedding planning and execution:

Budget-Bride-Classy-Wedding-1

When I first met Brandiann Kanya, the first thing I said to her, after the muscle memory response, “Great to meet you,” was, “I love your blouse.”  She told me she got a great deal on it at a secondhand shop. Ah, I thought, a girl after my own heart. I, like Brandi, am a sucker for an honest, can’t-pass-up bargain.  In no time we became fast friends, and I was honored to be invited to her wedding.

The more I got to know Brandi and her family, the more I realized that I, a recently engaged gal, could learn a lot from her.  Not only is she the queen of blouse bargain shopping, she makes saving money an everyday occurrence, whether it’s shopping for her young daughters or planning her own wedding.  She proved to me throwing a classy wedding doesn’t mean breaking the bridal bank.

She was kind enough to share with me (and you!) some ideas that are realistic and will have you saving money for other things, like the honeymoon!
