Meghann & James Real Vermont Love Story | Jay Peak Resort | Jay Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

Meghann and James are both passionate skiers, James even proposed during a backcountry skiing adventure, and have been to Jay Peak Resort many times. Once they learned that Jay Peak also hosted weddings they jumped at the chance to exchange vows with the gorgeous mountain views in the background. The day was beautifully sunny and clear, allowing them to take pictures on the mountain summit. The ceremony took place at the barn on property, which was beautifully decorated with bouquets of baby's breath in sap buckets. Meghann and James hand made the signs for the tables with names of trails at Jay Peak and they continued the ski theme with a pair of vintage skis that Meghann sanded down for their guests to sign in lieu of a guest book. The skis now hang in their home as a constant reminder of the day.

Janie & Blake | Real Vermont Wedding | The Hildene Manchester, Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine


On a rainy night in March, Janie and Blake were grabbing cocktails with friends in Manhattan. Their eyes met from across the room and Blake came over to introduce himself and they have been together ever since. Fast forward to another rainy day, this time in Vermont, Blake and Janie had attempted to tour the Hildene mansion but were thwarted by the rain and returned to her parent’s home in Winhall. As they ran to the porch for cover, Blake got down on one knee and popped the question.

Janie and Blake equally love the mountains of Vermont and the outdoors, and after they visited Hildene, this time without the rain, they both knew it was the perfect place to exchange their vows. Wanting to respect the natural beauty of the gardens at the mansion, the couple kept their color palette true to the surrounding flora with shades of green, pink, orange, and white. Gold metallic and mercury glass added some sparkle and shine to the cocktail hour and reception.

Alex & Doug | Cape Cod Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

Doug and Alex met during summer orientation at Chatham Bars Inn, where they were both working on their summer break from Hobart and William Smith Colleges. It was Chatham Bars Inn that brought them together so when they got engaged in October 2013 there was no need to venue shop! What Doug and Alex loved about April in Chatham is that their family and friends were able to truly enjoy the beauty of Chatham and Chatham Bars Inn without the hustle and bustle of the summer traffic and tourism. The views from the Main Inn are unbeatable, clear views of the ocean, seals on the sandbar and sunset! Alex wanted bright, cheery spring flowers, lots of tulips, cherry blossoms, garden roses and of course, peonies!

The bridal party consisted of all family; Alex's two sisters, her twin brother's fiancé, and her two sisters-in-law made up the bridal party. Doug’s brother was the best man and the groomsmen were Doug’s brother-in-law, two cousins, and Alex's twin brother. The champagne bridesmaid dresses and classic black tuxes were classic Cape Cod. Doug, an avid fisherman and a licensed boat captain spends most of his weekends fishing the waters surrounding Cape Cod and the islands, so they knew they had to go out on CBI’s boat, The Bartender, for some formal photos. Alex and Doug mingled with friends and family over Champagne & Cranberries and Dark & Stormy’s in the South Lounge, and then carry over to STARS for the reception where they literally danced the night away. It was the most perfect evening at their favorite place in the world which will forever hold a special place in their hearts.

Amy & Andrew Woodstock Vermont Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine | Summer Fall Issue

We are so excited about our newest issue for Fall and Summer 2016 - it is at the printer as I type this! It is full of amazing real weddings from all over Vermont, as well as fun, whimiscal, colorful, and enchanting ideas and inspiration. I know we say this every time, but it is our best issue yet. We love to share even more pictures of our real wedding love story features right here on the blog. There is only so much room in the magazine pages and there are always loads of other beautiful pictures to share. So today we are giving you a sneak peak of the wedding of Amy and Andrew at The Woodstock Inn in Woodstock, Vermont.

Amy and Andrew grew up in the same small town but their paths had never crossed. It was fate that the two should meet, years later, at a bar in Boston and discover how close they had been yet what they had been missing. After Andy proposed, on a snowy winter day in a state park walking their dog Leroy, the couple decided that Vermont would be the perfect place to exchange their vows. The enchanting front gardens at The Woodstock Inn immediately spoke to the couple and the rest of the details fell together. A romantic Vermont theme full of greenery and flowers, with accents of white, champagne, and light coral were used to make things pop.

To see more photos from Amy and Andrew's wedding and to read their entire love story, be sure to pick up a copy of the Vermont Bride Summer/Fall 2016 issue, out in stores at the end of May!

 Alexis & Andrew | Real Vermont Wedding | Pink and Gold Modern Love Story | Vermont Bride Magazine

Alexis and Andrew had an elegantly modern wedding celebration at The Holiday Inn in Rutland, with a stunning pink and gold color palette. Lots of love and art deco influences in the decor, which glittered and shined amid sparkling candles. Gilded birdcages and a phenomenal four-tiered, gold striped, cake furthered the fairytale-esque atmosphere. While an old fashioned popcorn cart, a hot dog station, and a colorful candy bar kept things fun and whimsical.

With the recent rise in microbreweries, and their loyal followers, it is not surprising that many couples are making their favorite beer selections a focal point of their reception. It certainly helps that Vermont boasts forty microbreweries of its own, making it number one in the nation for microbrews per capita. With so many to choose from it is easy to find something for every discerning taste.

This beer infused wedding inspiration is fun, fresh, and casual - with a good dose of romantic pink touches and vintage flair. We love the incorporation of hop buds in the tablescape and who wouldn't want a set of customized pint glasses or a growler etched with your wedding date?

Julianne & Jim Maine Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

Julianne and Jim had the kind of wedding that leaves you feeling happy. Maybe it was the sunshine or the springtime flowers, or maybe it was all the beautiful country setting at a barn in Maine. Or perhaps it was Julianne and Jim themselves, their love radiating to everyone around them. Despite their frequent time apart, due to Jim's position as a captain and pilot in the US Air Force, they have the kind of closeness and connection that comes from true love and respect for one another.

Despite the forecast of 100% rain, the skies magically were blue and sunny for their outdoor ceremony. The ethereal rays of sunshine illuminating the lovely and romantic flowers that were in abundance. It was New England springtime at it's best!

Caitlin and Dan Real Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine | Stowe Mountain Resort

Caitlin and Dan's wedding at Stowe Mountain Resort was elegant with a touch of fun, and lots of meaningful details. Stowe is a favorite place for Vermont weddings and it is not hard to see why. With stunning mountain views and a modern twist on the classic ski lodge, it is a beautiful atmosphere to exchange your vows and throw an epic party. Caitlin and Dan's reception was no exception, with a signature Maple Old Fashioned drink, customized wooden signs made out of tree trunks, and we especially love the "Jenga" alternative to a guest book where guests wrote well wishes on wooden blocks.
