Jessica & Chris Real Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Rustic Barn Wedding in Essex Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine | Winter/Spring 2017 issue

We have several gorgeous real weddings featured in our newest issue, the Winter/Spring 2017 issue of Vermont Bride Magazine. Over the course of the next two weeks we will be giving little sneak previews of each wedding, with additional photos to the ones that are featured in the magazine itself. Each one is unique and beautiful in it's own way, and Jessican and Chris' wedding is no exception to that, with its bright and airy details like blush pink table runners and pink and white bouquets.

Jessica and Chris are the opposite of fussy-they wanted a wedding that was simple, inclusive, and above all, authentic. They wanted their family and friends to feel how important they meant and how they each played a role on their journey that led to their union. Every detail that went into their wedding had a personal touch and held special significance to the couple. To read more about their love story and to see more photos from their wedding, pick up your copy of the Winter/Spring 2017 issue now! Available in retailers throughout New England or for sale on our website here.

Rachel & Michael | Grafton, Vermont

 

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!

Diana & Warren Real Vermont Wedding | Waitsfield Vermont Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

Diana and Warren were married on a beautiful summer day at Lareau Farm Inn, tucked away in the green mountains. The farm has plenty of rolling land, with a rustic Vermont barn and breathtaking views of the mountains as a backdrop. The path to the wooden chuppah was lined with mason jars filled with flowers and the guests sat on long wooden benches for the ceremony. Warren’s Dad officiated the ceremony, which was very intimate and family oriented. Afterwards, guests played croquet and corn hole during cocktail hour, and there was a fire pit for roasting marshmallows later on in the evening. Once the sky had darkened, Diana, Warren, and some of their guests lit off floating lanterns to end their incredible wedding celebration.
