THE BRANDON INN BRANDON, VERMONT Photography by Rodeo & Co. Photography

hen planning our wedding, we wanted to create a celebration of the communities that we belong to -- the people and experiences that ultimately brought us together and who continue to support us along the way. We chose to get married in my hometown in Vermont, at The Brandon Inn. The Inn is a lovely four-story brick Victorian, right on the town green. The proprietors, Sarah and Louis Pattis, are two of my parents’ closest friends, and in high school I worked the front desk in the evenings, often helping out with weddings and dreaming about getting married there myself. We wanted the decor to show off the Inn’s authentic beauty, so we focused on flowers -- lots of them! As a couple we really love to travel, so we named all the tables after cities we’ve visited together, like Marrakech, Beijing, and Cape Town. Ben’s childhood rabbi came up from New York City to marry us in the Inn’s backyard next to the Neshobe River, in an interdenominational ceremony. We were married under a chuppah that we built from birch saplings I cut from my family’s land, with a canopy made from my grandmother’s handmade lace and the tallit, or prayer shawl, that Ben got at his bar mitzvah. Part of the Jewish ceremony involves breaking a glass, so Ben’s brother Andrew, who is an artist, created a custom piece that we’ve since framed. The reception afterward was inside the Inn, with a buffet dinner featuring lots of locally grown and raised food, a vintage photobooth, and then dancing to our DJ friend’s rare Motown record collection late into the night. Since it was Labor Day weekend, most of our guests came up for a few days, and the weekend was full of activities for them to explore and enjoy Brandon, like hiking, golf, antiquing, and a whiffle ball game and BBQ the day before the wedding. The whole thing came off like magic, thanks to our inspiring family and friends who celebrated with us. - Jessica & Benjamin

GRAND ISLE LAKE HOUSE SOUTH HERO, VERMONT Photography by Lucas deSousa Photography

e never really considered getting married anywhere other than Vermont. Aside from being Erica’s home, the beautiful scenery was something that we wanted to share with our friends and family for the outdoor wedding that we envisioned. Once we saw the Grand Isle Lake House, no other venue could compare.

The

breathtaking setting overlooking Lake Champlain, with a backdrop of gorgeous mountains and the unique character of the historic Lake House represented everything that we love about Vermont. Our goal was to create a weekend getaway that our family and friends would never forget while sharing our special day. To have all that only minutes from where Erica grew up in Grand Isle made it feel like home while giving our guests a truly authentic Vermont experience. - Erica & Mike

VERMONT EXPERIENCE

Imagine giving a gift that will be talked about for years to come, long after the ribbons have been untied and wrapping paper has been thrown away. A Vermont Experience is a gift that truly suprises, delights and excites the recipient. Whether it’s watching the sun rise from a hot air balloon, learning to fly fish on a beautiful summer evening, or feeling the adrenaline rush of dogsledding through the woods of Vermont, your fiance, family, friends, wedding paty, guests will be forever grateful for the lifelong memories you helped them create.

VERMONT SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA www.vso.org “Vermont is fortunate to be home to one of the finest symphony orchestras in the country. The VSO has brought a love of classical music to all corners of our state, and should be a great source of pride to all Vermonters. The VSO truly embodies what is best about Vermont…” – Governor Jim Douglas The

WEDDINGS WE LOVE

AMELIA

&

DILLON

THE HAMPTON INN COLCHESTER, VERMONT Photography by Studio SB

t was a sweltering July day in Vermont, but Dillon and Amelia kept their cool. Maybe it was because the couple had survived the pressure of pulling together the final details of their wedding day with Dillon deployed to South America for the entire month of June. Or maybe it was because Amelia grew up on a farm in Northern Vermont and she was no stranger to hot summers. But it also could have been because the couple decided not to risk the weather when planning their wedding that allowed them not to sweat it. The added benefit of choosing an indoor venue for their wedding day was taking advantage of the urban beauty of downtown Winooski. In between the ceremony at St. Francis Xavier Church in Winooski and their reception at the Hampton Inn in Colchester the couple spent time soaking in their new marriage and posing for photos around the historic Champlain Mill. It’s a side of Vermont that doesn’t get as much credit as the rustic barns and grassy meadows so often seen in featured Vermont weddings. But some of Vermont’s urban centers boast both historic and new architecture that can make for some stunning backgrounds. The charming brick of the surrounding buildings where Dillon and Amelia lingered was a beautiful match to the couple’s vintage style. And just a short walk away was a leafy walking path to also capture some of Vermont’s natural beauty. It was the best of both worlds! - Stina Booth, Photographer
