Valentine's Day Picnic | Red and Pink Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

Being in the wedding magazine business pretty much sets you up to fall in love with love, so every day is like Valentine's Day. But when February 14th rolls around each year we still get just as excited as you! All the electricity in the air from new relationships to new engagements, it makes our hearts go pitter-patter. So when we saw this Valentine's Day Picnic inspiration, by Staged Fine by Design, we immediately wanted to settle into the soft pillows, pop a chocolate or two, and snuggle with our sweethearts.

It might be too cold still in Vermont for a woodland picnic on V-day, but re-create this scene in front of a nice big fireplace and we're there!

Nikia & Kyle's Real Wedding | Winter Wedding | Mountain Top Inn and Resort | Vermont Bride Magazine

Nikia and Kyle met skiing in Vail, Colorado and soon discovered that they shared a love of the outdoors and snow. After dating and adopting a dog together, aptly named "Vail", they were engaged on the top of Beehive Mountain in Acadia National Park. So it was easy to decide on a season, theme, and location when it came time to plan their wedding. It had to be winter, on a mountain, with lots of skiing references. The Mountain Top Inn and Resort was the perfect place to make all of their wedding dreams come true. Their love for the snow was evident when it started snowing during our outdoor ceremony. It was a good thing they opted for a hot chocolate bar for their guests to enjoy before the ceremony! Bridesmaids, parents of the bride and the bride herself were transported to the ceremony by horse drawn sleigh. Fur coats and wraps were a must for the outdoor ceremony, and snow boots and vintage skis played a major role in the decor. The wedding invitations were ski themed, guests signed a pair of skis in lieu of a traditional guest book, and even the cocktail list was a ski sign.

Lauren & Justin | Real Vermont Wedding | The Round Barn, Warren, Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

We love the rustic, woodsy details of Lauren and Justin's wedding at the Round Barn in Warren. Lauren and Justin chose Vermont for their celebration after enjoying countless weekends skiing in the Green Mountains. The soft, green foliage mixed with weather-worn wood, and a touch of moss, and of course beautiful flowers - it was truly a country fairytale held in a charming barn. How much more "Vermont" can you get than that?

Kristyn & Eric's Bright and Colorful Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

With her background in design and her skills as a baker and business owner, it is no surprise that Kristyn's wedding came together with a bounty of color and stylish details. The jaw droppingly beautiful estate that served as their venue was set in the valley of the foothills of Vermont. Towering trees and soft mossy lawns served as the backdrop and bright pops of color from every direction, made it come alive. Each piece was pulled together effortlessly and created a magical backdrop for Eric and Kristyn's day.

Sweet Inspiration | Wedding Desserts | Vermont Bride Magazine

Here is a little sneak peak of our mouth-watering, gorgeous dessert inspiration, Sweet as Sugar, featured in the Summer/Fall issue of Vermont Bride - pssst, get yours here! There were so many sweet and sugary photos that we couldn't fit into the magazine, that we knew we needed to put some more on the blog!

We just love the soft pink and luxurious gold color combo in the displays of decedant desserts. The delicate flowers and icing details on the cupcakes and cookies almost make them too beautiful to eat. Almost. Who needs dinner when you have a pastry display like this? We say just skip right to the good stuff and have dessert first!

Erica & James Real Wedding in Stowe | Vermont Bride Magazine

Stowe is one of those quintessential Vermont towns where the streets are lined with cute shops and adorable houses, the snow-capped mountains tower in the distance, and everyone you pass waves hello. It's not wonder that it is a favorite destination for weddings. You don't have to look far for inspiration in the natural beauty and local artisans, and you can throw a stone and hit an amazing Resort, Inn, or B & B to host your "I do's". This is one of those simply lovely Stowe weddings where everything looks effortless and carefree. Where the decor perfectly matches the seasonal flowers in a nearby field, blooming, and the bride and groom can't resist a dip in the pool (with their gown and suit on!).

Modern Boardwalk Wedding Inspiration | VermontBrideMagazine.com

Art Deco and the roaring twenties have been inspiring brides and grooms for a few years now and it's clear we can't get enough of the glitz, gold, and glam that oozes from this era. That's why we loved this inspiration, styled shoot sent to us by Edward Lai Photography. From the gorgeously adorned pink flapper gown, to the over-the-top cigar bar, these photos are dripping with timeless elegance and style.

White cafe lights draped against a white, brick wall give a warm, cozy, yet Hollywood feel to the table design. The glam continues with gold, gold, and more gold in the place settings, goblets, and candle holders. The design team from A Day To Remember Wedding & Events perfectly paired the rich, velvety reds with soft peach tones, and sparkly, crystal details.

The decadence continues with the cigar bar, outfitted with all of the accoutrements, any cigar enthusiast would gladly sit and relax here for long into the night. Cigars, from Cigar City, also double as placeholders and favors at each of the place settings. With opulance like this, it's clear that this time period will be inspiring us for decades to come.
