Lisa & David Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Barn Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Feeling a connection to the Vermont landscape and people from their very first visit, Lisa and David chose it for their dream destination wedding. They knew they wanted a barn venue and after viewing a video on the Alerin Barn website, they decided to go check it out. It was love at first sight with the perfect outdoor space for the ceremony and a rustic, chic feel that Lisa was looking for. They went with a soft, romantic color palette of dusty shale, soft mint, blush, ivory, and gold—all colors that their wedding photographer knew would look wonderful in the photos as well. Lisa and David DIY’d a lot of the decor, such as the “LUEA” letters hanging in a door frame, centerpieces made of family photos, a suitcase that belonged to Lisa’s aunt became their card holder, and they had little colorful books from Black Ink for guests to write stories or well wishes in.

Lindsay & Finn Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Mountain Top Inn and Resort Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Vermont is a place that is very dear to both Finn and Lindsay. Finn grew up there and over the last several years it has become a second home to Lindsay. Plus you can’t beat the beautiful, natural backdrop! The couple wanted to share their favorite spot with Lindsay’s family and all of their friends. It was important that their guests could stay on property and have plenty to do together, since most would be coming from out of town. The Mountain Top Inn & Resort had all of the amenities, and the breathtaking vistas, that they were looking for. Their entire wedding weekend was held on site, from the rehearsal dinner down by the lake, to a Sunday farewell brunch. Their guests enjoyed horseback riding, playing tennis, walking the trails, and even skeet shooting. Not only is the Mountain Top Inn beautiful, but it is practically a “summer camp for adults,” as Lindsay puts it. From s’mores around the fire pit to sipping drinks by the pool—there was something for everyone.

Laura & Patrick Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Basin Harbor Club Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Laura lived in Vermont her entire life, before moving to Nashville for college, and had brought Patrick there for many trips to visit her family. They both love Vermont in the fall and after Laura saw the wedding arch at Basin Harbor Club, she knew it was the place they should get married. Their families were deeply involved with the wedding planning–Laura’s sister was Maid of Honor, Patrick’s brother was Best Man, Laura’s brothers walked her down the aisle and read passages at the wedding, and her father officiated the ceremony. Right before she put on her wedding gown, Laura’s Aunt brought her a gift from her greatgrandmother. It was a bracelet that her great-grandfather had made for her great-grandmother many years ago. Laura also used the ring pillow both her mother and grandmother had used in their weddings. One of their favorite details from their wedding also was crafted by a family member. Laura’s sister created custom table numbers which featured a photo of Laura and Patrick from that age. The photos of them as babies were adorable and the ones from awkward middle school years provided lots of laughter and entertainment!

Glenna & Jon Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Winter Barn Wedding in Waitsfield Vermont | Winter/Spring 2017 Issue | Vermont Bride Magazine

Glenna and Jon had one of those rare, yet fabulous, winter Vermont weddings. It takes a special someone to want to have their wedding during the cold and snowy months in the Green Mountains, but since she was a young girl, Glenna had always dreamt of a winter engagement. The snow, the cold, and the rustic charm of the winter all seemed so romantic! So, in early June with a newly purchased engagement ring burning a hole in his pocket, Jon was confronted with a logistical problem. With the summer heat rising, Jon quickly thought of a plan. Jon contacted the hotel in DC that he stayed at during the weekend of his first date with Glenna and made special arrangements with them for the big day.

When the day came, Jon drove Glenna down to DC ostensibly to have dinner with friends. Jon explained that he had reserved the hotel room so that they could celebrate their 2 year anniversary in the city. Upon entering the room, Glenna realized that there was much more to the surprise. Jon had arranged for the hotel to decorate the room in a winter wonderland theme, thus creating the winter engagement Glenna had always wanted, despite the fact that it was the middle of the summer. A Christmas tree, garland, and fake snow covered the hotel suite along with a dusting of rose petals, pine cones, and presents wrapped for Christmas. On the floor, white rose petals spelled out the words, "Will you marry me?". When Glenna turned around to look at Jon he was on bended knee with an engagement ring featuring the center stone from her grandmother's engagement ring...And the rest, as they say, is history!

Fruitful Fall Inspiration

Fruitful Fall Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Autumn Harvest | Vermont Bride Magazine | Ashley Largesse Photography

Fall is both a welcome and dissapointing season in Vermont. It is a reminder of what is coming in a few short weeks, that summer is over and the snow is imminent. But you can't beat the colors of the fall leaves, the bountiful harvest of fruits and vegetables, crisp afternoons spent at the fair, and cozy evenings around bonfires with some apple cider. It is also a favorite time to have a wedding and we love these gorgeous and inspiring images from Ashley Largesse Photography. It is a fresh departure from the typical deep plums and burnt oranges you typically see for an autumn celebration. A crisp, clean white and brigher orange hues are the perfect contrast to muted honeyed wheat and the faded greens of succulents. 

To see more images from this feature, and tons of other inspiring ideas and photos, be sure to check out the Vermont Bride LOOKBOOK issue 7! Check it out here.

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.”

Courtney & Seth Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Mountain Top Inn & Resort Emerald Green and Mint Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Courtney and Seth could not have asked for a more stunning or breathtaking wedding. Held at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort, they enjoyed getting ready in the luxury cabin and their ceremony took place on a charming knoll with the majestic green mountains in the background. Despite a brief drizzle following their personally written vows, they managed to capture many tender and heartfelt moments outside. They even had their one year old Bernese Mountain Dog present for the ceremony!

We love their emerald green and mint color palette, especially in the hand crafted details that were abundant in the decor. From the planter seating charts to the embroidered table numbers, every detail was warm and inviting. The groom's father built the birdhouse card holder using wood from a tree he planted on Seth's first birthday. For favors the couple chose lottery scratch off tickets in a fun play on the saying "For Richer, For Poorer", and instead of a traditional guest book the bride and groom asked their guests to find a word in the dictionary that they felt best described them and to leave a message next to it.

The night was filled with lots of dancing and laughter as guests flooded the dance floor and Photobooth. The night ended with a glow stick exit and memories to last a lifetime.

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.
