BEAUTY BUZZ

celebrating the over forty brides By: Jennifer Goslovich, Owner; PierVana Hair-Spa-Jewels

Wedding celebrations are not just for the young. I have had the greatest pleasure in helping many a mature bride get ready for her special day. Whether a first time wedding, second time around or a special commitment ceremony, these ladies glow in the light of happiness. To keep them that way throughout their day, I reach for my favorite go to make-up, Mirabella. To achieve your best look start with your skin. HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE! Always drink plenty of water. The experts say drink half your weight in ounces. It really does make a difference, so drink up! Your best defense against skin imperfections actually comes before applying any makeup. Make sure you are moisturizing your face and neck, as well as protecting your skin from the sun all year round. I use Mirabella CC Creame on a daily basis. It's like a moisturizer, light concealer and sun block with a SPF of 20 all in one. It's best applied with your fingers to break up the vitamins in the product. If you need a bit more coverage for blemishes or redness on your wedding day, or in general, use the Mirabella Skin Tint Creme, best applied with a Mirabella Foundation Brush. Make sure to match the foundation color to your skin tone, so your skin won't be a shade or two off from your neck and shoulders. Now that we have a clean smooth face, lets add a bit of color. Starting with the eyes, create the best frame for your eyes by making sure your eyebrows are shaped and filled in with an eyebrow pencil. Mirabella Brow Pencil comes in three different shades. I love them; they go on easy, they last and they don't smudge. Apply a little concealer on your eyelids and under the eyes with a Mirabella Concealer Brush. Used to lighten bluish or dark tones, this also helps eye shadow stay on longer. 12 | Vermont Bride LOOKBOOK

Choosing a natural matte eye shadow through the crease of the eyes, creates a better illusion for maturing eyes. Shimmery eye shadow draws attention to fine lines on the eyes. If there is any puffiness – it will also be exaggerated by using shimmer through the crease of the eyes. Keep it light and simple. To give your lash line a defined fine line I use Mirabella's Magic Marker which comes in black and brown. Follow with two applications of Mirabella's Waterproof Mascara. Lets move on to lips next. Some woman may be nervous to use color, thinking that it will "bleed" or "feather" through the fine creaks around the lips. Not my Brides! I use the Mirabella Perfecting Lip Definer, simply outlining your lips with this clear pencil. It forms a protective barrier that stops bleeding and feathering in its tracks. Follow with Mirabella Colour Vinyl Lipstick. Choose a color that is a shade lighter or darker then your natural lip color. If you have small lips, go brighter or lighter rather than darker. Darker will make your lips look smaller and your face more severe. For the final step, add a little color to your cheeks. Stay close to your lip color family when choosing your blush. You don't want a peach blush with pink lips. Mirabella Blush Colour Duo is wonderful in that it has a darker shade to apply right under your cheek bone and a lighter color to apply on the bone, giving both softness and dimension. High-quality make-up is important for a great finished look, as well as for the condition of your skin.

beauty buzz The tools used are also very important; you just can’t apply makeup in a flawless way without the right brushes! I have found the best way to help ladies of all ages, is to point out their best features, and show them how to make the most of them. They then start to see themselves differently. Looking good is a game that anyone can learn to play. And once you learn how to play by the rules, it makes the game more fun and the end result more interesting. I am happy to share these tips on doing your own make-up, although I highly recommend having a professional make-up Artist on your special day. Chances are you have financially invested in this day with a beautiful dress, an amazing venue, great friends... Give yourself that extra love, and attention, you'll be thankful when you see your transformed self in your forever photos!

LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS

vermontbridemagazine.com


inspiration

During the Victorian era, floral arrangements were exchanged between a suitor and his love interest to convey messages of love. There are whole dictionaries written on the symbolism of plants and how they are used to express certain sentiments and deeper meanings. The “Language of Flowers” collection of bridal accessories by Edera Jewelry, featured here, was inspired by these symbolic meanings of flowers that are connected to love and marriage. Orange blossoms symbolize eternal love and marriage. Camellias express sentiments of adoration and perfection. Peonies convey romance and a happy marriage. Ivy translates to wedded bliss. Gypsophila means everlasting love. And Myrtle Flowers represent love and marriage.

Sometimes the most romantic things in life are the simplest moments. Sweet nothings whispered in your ear, a soft kiss, or a subtle blush when you catch each other's eye. Understated and intimate celebrations do not necessarily mean less beautiful, as there is a special kind of beauty found in a more classic, no-frills setting. Each element is allowed to speak for itself and draw you in. A color palette of pinks and whites is a traditional wedding combination perfect for a less-is-more design.

A beautiful desserts table features a floral waterfall design flows down from an antique teapot, framing the delicious spread. Whimsical and romantic lace is used to form a swing and nearby is a rustic ladder with more luscious florals.

The Perfect Vermont Wedding Favor If you are having your wedding in Vermont then chances are you have a great fondness for the Green Mountain State and are eager to share it’s beauty and splendor with all of your closest friends and family. A common thread with Vermont weddings is the desire to showcase Vermont made products and, especially, food. No matter where your guests are from they have most likely heard of Vermont maple syrup—a sweet delicacy that conjures images of red, maple leaf covered

hills, stone walls, and rustic barns in bucolic farm fields. It is widely coveted for it’s unique flavor and can be quite hard to find, as well as expensive, once you get outside the boundaries of New England. This is what makes maple syrup the perfect Vermont wedding favor. It is something your guests will both love and are guaranteed to use and enjoy. Give them a piece of Vermont to take home and remember your celebration with every delicious drop.

WEDDED BLISS

when selecting your wedding date By: Carmen George

5 THINGS TO CONSIDER

BUDGET FRIENDLY: Ask your venue about rates for off peak

hours for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Prices are often less. If you marry by a crackling fire in the off-season of November and January through May, except holidays, you will see great discounts. If you marry in the evening during the week (year round) your savings will be significant.

SARAH LAVOIE PHOTOGRAPHY

SEASONAL CONSIDERATIONS: Summer tends to be popular for

You said “Yes!”—now what? It’s time to pick your wedding date! You need to take time to consider the following before you send “save the date” cards. MEANING OF THE DATE: Is there a date that is special to the

two of you, such as the day you met? Are their dates that should avoid because they remind you or those closest to you of something sad, like the anniversary of a beloved relative’s death? You may want to pick a date that isn’t associated with any other event and let your wedding day have its own meaning. CHERISHED GUESTS: You want the people you love there to cel-

ebrate with you. For extra special guests, give them a call to find out which dates won’t work for them. This is critically important for parents, siblings, anyone helping to pay for the wedding, and people you want in the wedding party. VENUE AVAILABILITY: Friday evenings (for rehearsals) and

Saturday evening during high wedding season are often booked a year or more in advance. Seasonal venues, such as state parks, generally close after Columbus Day weekend and reopen Memorial Day weekend. If you do find an opening on the venue’s calendar, remember it is not reserved for your date until you have a signed contract and your deposit check is cashed.

weddings. You need to be prepared, there is lots of competition for venues and vendors. It can also be hot which can be tough on men in suits if your venue doesn’t have air conditioning. Fall is a gorgeous time of year in Vermont, the vibrant colors can reduce your need for flowers, however after mid-October temperatures tend to drop dramatically. Check online for peak foliage for your venue location. If your wedding is during snowstorm months, guests flying or driving may be delayed by the weather but if all guests are local, this should not be a problem attending your cosy wedding. Spring tends to be wet, chilly and muddy, at the same time the trees are bursting with lush new leaves making a nice photo backdrop. After you have selected your date, you need to think about the time of day. Morning weddings are rare since everyone needs time to prepare. The best wedding photos are during what photographers refer to as the Golden Hour, which is an hour after sunrise or an hour before sunset. You should allow an hour for your ceremony. That would mean having your wedding two hours before sunset. Check sunset times online. In the warmer months you need a shaded area to avoid having photos with everyone squinting. Having your wedding date selected is your starting point. After securing the venue, which is the most important thing checklist item, you can move on to finding all of the other necessary supporting cast, such as a great photographer, creative florist and musical talent.

EVERY NIGHT SHE WOULD GO HOME AND NOTICE HOW SORE HER STOMACH WAS FROM LAUGHING WITH MATT SO MUCH THROUGHOUT THEIR WORK DAY. EVENTUALLY THE TWO STARTED DATING, AND EVEN THOUGH THEY DON’T WORK TOGETHER ANY MORE, LARA KNOWS EVERY DAY WILL END WITH PLENTY OF LAUGHTER AND SMILES AT HOME. WHEN MATT BEGAN CONSTRUCTING A SECRET PROJECT IN THEIR GARAGE, LARA DILIGENTLY KEPT HERSELF FROM PEAKING AS SHE LOVES SURPRISES. AND A SURPRISE IS WHAT SHE GOT, WHEN FOUR MONTHS LATER SHE CAME HOME TO FIND A FULL SIZE PHOTO BOOTH IN THE LIVING ROOM! COMPLETE WITH COLOR CHANGING LEDS THAT SPELLED OUT “PHOTOBOOTH” AND A SPECIAL PRINTER. LARA LOVES PHOTO BOOTHS BUT THE FACT THAT MATT HAD BUILT THIS ONE WITH HIS BAR HANDS MADE IT THAT MUCH MORE AMAZING. IN THE FIRST RUN OF PICTURES THEY COUPLE TOOK, MATT ASKED LARA TO MARRY HIM. GOING ALONG WITH THE “PHOTO” THEME, LARA AND MATT USED OLD FASHIONED CAMERAS TO DECORATE THE TABLES AT THEIR WEDDING, AS WELL AS OLD PHOTOS OF THEIR FAMILIES. AND OF COURSE, THE PHOTO BOOTH WAS THERE TOO! F: facebook.com/vermontbridemagazine | P: pinterest.com/vermontbride | T: @vermontbride | I: instagram.com/vermontbride

FROM AMY BENNETT, THEIR PHOTOGRAPHER, WHO WAS GAME FOR TAKING PRE-CEREMONY PHOTOS ON TOP OF MOUNT MANSFIELD, TO DANIKA OF BLOMMA FLICKA WHO FOUND THE LAST BLOOMING PEONIES IN VERMONT TO CREATE LARA’S GORGEOUS BOUQUET, AND MARION OF VERMONT SWEET TOOTH WHO TURNED THEIR VISION OF A PALE BLUE OMBRE CAKE WITH SUGAR FLOWERS INTO A REALITY. THEIR BAND, THE RED LINE BAND FROM BOSTON, EVEN LEARNED TO PLAY “SWINGING ON STAR”- A SONG THAT WAS VERY SPECIAL TO LARA AND HER FATHER WHO PASSED AWAY SHORTLY AFTER THE WEDDING. SHARING THAT MOMENT WITH HER DAD WAS AN EXTRA SPECIAL GIFT.

KEVIN AND MEGAN BOTH ATTENDED DARTMOUTH, WHERE KEVIN TOOK NOTICE OF MEGAN IN CLASS, AND WHEN A CHANCE MEETING OCCURRED AT THE BEACON HILL PUB IN BOSTON, HE SEIZED THE OPPORTUNITY TO ASK HER OUT ON A DATE TO FENWAY. DESPITE LAKE SUPERIOR, MICHIGAN BEING MEGAN’S FAVORITE PLACE, AND WHERE KEVIN PROPOSED, THE COUPLE CHOSE WOODSTOCK, VERMONT FOR THE LOCATION OF THEIR SMALL, FAMILY WEDDING. THEY HAVE LOVED VISITING WOODSTOCK AS A COUPLE AND THOUGHT IT WOULD BE THE PERFECT DESTINATION FOR ALL OF THEIR FAMILY THAT WAS TRAVELING TO JOIN THEM IN THEIR CELEBRATION. SIMON PEARCE IS THEIR FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN WOODSTOCK SO IT WAS THE PERFECT SPOT TO PLAN A BEAUTIFUL AND INTIMATE DINNER. FOLLOWING THEIR CEREMONY, EVERYONE TOOK A BUS FROM THE CHURCH TO THE RESTAURANT AND SINCE IT WAS A SMALL, INTIMATE WEDDING, EVERYONE FIT TOGETHER ON ONE BUS. ONE OF THE COUPLE’S FAVORITE MOMENTS WAS GETTING TO LAUGH AND CELEBRATE WITH ALL OF THEIR GUESTS ON THE RIDE TO THE RECEPTION, WITH LOTS OF CHAMPAGNE! RIGHT BEFORE DINNER SEVERAL HOT AIR BALLOONS LIFTED OFF FROM THE FIELD NEXT TO SIMON PEARCE. IT WAS AN UNEXPECTED, BUT WONDERFUL, ADDITION TO THE DAY.

WHILE DAN AND MARIELLE WORKED AT THE SAME COMPANY, THEY RARELY CROSSED PATHS. DAN TRIED IN VAIN TO CATCH MARIELLE’S EYE AND EVENTUALLY WENT A MORE STRAIGHT-FORWARD ROUTE AND JUST GAVE HER HIS NUMBER, SAYING THEY SHOULD GO OUT SOMETIME. MARIELLE DECIDED TO GIVE DAN A CHANCE AND NEVER LOOKED BACK! SINCE THEY BOTH LIVE FAR AWAY FROM THEIR HOMETOWNS AND IMMEDIATE FAMILY, DAN WAITED UNTIL MARIELLE’S BEST FRIEND WAS VISITING TO PROPOSE. HE WANTED HER TO BE ABLE TO CELEBRATE WITH SOMEONE CLOSE TO HER AND HIS THOUGHTFULNESS MEANT A LOT TO MARIELLE. SHE WAS ABLE TO SHARE HER EXCITEMENT AND ASK HER TO BE THE MAID OF HONOR IN PERSON.

VERMONT BRIDE WAS AN INCREDIBLY HELPFUL SOURCE WHEN IT CAME TO FINDING THEIR VENDORS. REALIZING HOW LARGE THE WEDDING INDUSTRY IS IN VERMONT, MARIELLE AND DAN UTILIZED THE VERMONT BRIDE LOOKBOOK TO SEE POTENTIAL VENDORS IN ACTION, HELPING NARROW THE OPTIONS.

real wedding TRANSPLANTS FROM THE SOUTH, DAN AND MARIELLE WANTED TO SHARE THEIR NEW HOME WITH THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. THEY WANTED AN OUTDOOR WEDDING AND TO SHOW THEIR GUESTS THE QUINTESSENTIAL VERMONT FALL LANDSCAPE. THEY CHOSE A COLOR PALETTE OF RICH PURPLES, DARK GRAY, AND ORANGE., ENCOURAGING THEIR FLORIST TO USE OTHER FALL COLORS FOR A BRIGHT AND VIBRANT LOOK. DAN AND MARIELLE ENJOY HIKING AND FORAGING IN THE WOODS SO THEY INCORPORATED THIS HOBBY BY CHOOSING MUSHROOM THEMED TABLES AND PLACE CARDS. THEY ALSO GAVE THEIR GUESTS A SAMPLING OF THE FABULOUS FOODS THAT ARE FOUND IN VERMONT, LIKE CHEESES, MEATS, AND OF COURSE MAPLE SYRUP.

WE COULDN’T FIND THE RIGHT ITEM IN A STORE AND DIDN’T WANT TO PAY A FORTUNE FOR TEN TABLE NUMBER HOLDERS, SO WE DECIDED TO MAKE OUR OWN—BY HAND WITHOUT ANY POWER TOOLS. IT WAS A LABOR OF LOVE, BUT THEY TURNED OUT GREAT"!

WHILE IN COLLEGE BOTH NATALIE AND ZACH WORKED FOR THE SAME GYM IN CAPE COD. DESPITE BOTH BEING INVOLVED WITH OTHER PEOPLE WHEN THEY MET, EVENTUALLY THEIR FRIENDSHIP TURNED INTO SOMETHING MORE. ON THEIR SIXTH ANNIVERSARY ZACH RECREATED THEIR FIRST DATE- A ROMANTIC STROLL ON A PRIVATE BEACH WITH WINE, CHARCUTERIE, AND CHEESE. AT SUNSET HE WALKED NATALIE TO THE WATER’S EDGE AND PROPOSED, THEN TOOK HER TO THE SAME RESTAURANT THEY WENT TO ON THEIR FIRST DATE. BOTH NATALIE AND ZACH LOVE NATURE AND ARE AVID SNOWBOARDERS, HAVING GROWN UP LEARNING TO RIDE AT JAY PEAK. IT ONLY MADE SENSE THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE THEIR WEDDING ON THE VERY MOUNTAIN THEY SNOWBOARD AT EVERY WINTER. THE OUTDOORSY FEEL OF THE RESORT AND THE VIEW OF THE MOUNTAIN WAS ALSO PERFECT FOR THEIR VISION OF A FOREST FAIRYTALE THEME. VERMONT BRIDE MAGAZINE WAS ALSO VERY USEFUL IN HELPING NATALIE FIND DIFFERENT DECORATING IDEAS THAT MATCHED THE RUSTIC-CHIC THEME THEY WERE LOOKING FOR.

AFTER THREE HOURS OF PHOTOS, MY HAIR DEFINITELY NEEDED A TOUCH-UP. ALSO, MAKE SURE YOU PRE-ORDER FOOD TO BE DELIVERED TO YOUR WEDDING PARTY ROOMS FOR BREAKFAST, LUNCH, AND SNACKS. YOU WILL BE HUNGRY AND THE LAST THING YOU WANT TO THINK ABOUT IS TRYING TO ORDER FOOD LAST MINUTE FOR EVERYONE”.

MARCY WAS ALSO SERVING IN THE AIR FORCE AND STATIONED IN ENGLAND, BUT THEY HAD TO WAIT FIVE MONTHS FOR JUSTIN TO RETURN BEFORE THEY OFFICIALLY STARTED DATING. A HUGE MANCHESTER UNITED SOCCER FAN, MARCY WAS EXCITED TO SCORE TICKETS TO THEIR LAST HOME MATCH. SHE WAS EVEN MORE EXCITED WHEN JUSTIN PROPOSED RIGHT IN THE STANDS BEFORE THE START OF THE MATCH! MARCY AND JUSTIN CHOSE VERMONT FOR IT’S PROXIMITY TO WHERE THEIR FAMILIES LIVE IN NEW YORK-FAR ENOUGH AWAY TO FEEL LIKE A DESTINATION BUT CLOSE ENOUGH FOR THEIR GRANDPARENTS TO ATTEND. AS FATE WOULD HAVE IT, AFTER CHOOSING THE STATE FOR THEIR WEDDING MARCY ACCEPTED A JOB IN SOUTH BURLINGTON AND THE COUPLE MOVED THERE, MAKING PLANNING THAT MUCH EASIER.

AT FIRST MATTHEW THOUGHT ALEX WAS DATING ONE OF THE CYCLISTS, BUT SOON LEARNED SHE WAS SINGLE. EVEN THOUGH HE HAD ONE OF HIS WORST RACES OF THE SEASON, FEARING HE HAD DASHED HIS HOPES OF WINNING HER OVER, THE TWO WERE SOON DATING. ALEX WAS IN FLORENCE, ITALY FOR A SCHOOL STUDY TOUR AND MATTHEW JOINED HER FOR THE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY. JUST AFTER CLIMBING A HILL ON THE EDGE OF THE CITY, WITH ALL OF FLORENCE SPREAD OUT BELOW THEM, MATTHEW GOT DOWN ON ONE KNEE AND ASKED ALEX TO MARRY HIM. THEN THE COUPLE HOPPED ON A TRAIN TO THE ROMANTIC CITY OF VENICE TO SPEND A FEW NIGHTS CELEBRATING. VERMONT WAS THE IDEAL LOCATION FOR THE PAIR TO CELEBRATE THEIR UNION. IT IS WHERE ALEX SPENT MANY OF HER WINTERS GROWING UP SKIING WITH HER FAMILY THE COUPLE HAD VISITED THE WOODSTOCK INN SEVERAL TIMES FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS AND IT WAS THEIR DREAM LOCATION FOR A WEDDING.

THIS THEME WAS INSPIRED BY THE ROMANTIC LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS OF THE 17TH AND 18TH CENTURIES. MATTHEW AND ALEX WANTED TO EMPHASIZE VERMONT’S ABUNDANT NATURAL BEAUTY AND CASCADING GREENERY. THE HEAD TABLE HIGHLIGHTED THE THEME WITH A PASTORAL MURAL OF A LANDSCAPE ETCHING. THEY ALSO COLLABORATED TOGETHER TO DESIGNED THEIR ARBOR, MAKING IT SIMILAR IN STYLE TO A JAPANESE TORII GATE, AND THEY HAD A SPECIAL PLANTING DURING THEIR CEREMONY WHERE THEY EACH PLACED SOIL IN THE POT OF A TREE.

ANNIE KNEW OF DENNY BEFORE THEY OFFICIALLY MET—HER BROTHER HAD COACHED DENNY ON THE YALE HOCKEY TEAM. WHEN THEY MET AT A BAR IN BOSTON ONE NIGHT, THE PAIR HIT IT OFF. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY WERE BOTH ABOUT TO EMBARK ON SEPARATE ADVENTURES—HER TO A NEW JOB TEACHING IN VERMONT AND HE WAS TO PLAY HOCKEY IN FRANCE. FOR SEVEN MONTHS THEY GRADUALLY GOT TO KNOW ONE ANOTHER AND THEN FINALLY WENT ON THEIR FIRST DATE WHEN DENNY RETURNED TO VERMONT. ON A HIKE UP THE DARTMOUTH SKI WAY DENNY POPPED THE QUESTION. ANNIE HAD A FEW HINTS ABOUT WHAT WAS COMING—SPECIFICALLY DENNY INSISTING ON BRINGING HIS RAIN COAT EVEN THOUGH THERE WASN’T A CLOUD IN THE SKY—BUT THE MOMENT WAS STILL EMOTIONAL. DENNY, WHO HAS BEEN PLAYING HOCKEY HIS WHOLE LIFE, TOLD ANNIE THAT HE HAD, “…BEEN ON A LOT OF TEAMS, BUT THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST TEAM I HAVE EVER BEEN ON”. ANNIE AND DENNY CHOSE TO HAVE THEIR WEDDING AT DENNY’S CHILDHOOD HOME IN NORWICH, VERMONT-WHICH HAPPENS TO BE WHERE THEY LIVE IN THE OFF SEASON AS WELL. IT IS A HAPPY PLACE WITH A LOT OF MEANING FOR THE COUPLE AS IT IS WHERE THEY SPENT A LOT OF TIME IN THE EARLY RELATIONSHIP, GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER AND FALLING IN LOVE.

ANNIE AND DENNY WENT WITH A COLOR PALETTE OF CREAM AND NAVY, WITH SELECT ELEMENTS HAVING A BOHEMIAN TWIST. THE SETTING ALREADY HAD PLENTY OF NATURAL GREENERY SO THEY KEPT THE REST OF THE FLORALS SIMPLE. THEIR FAMILY WAS VERY INVOLVED WITH CREATING MANY OF THE ELEMENTS, WITH ANNIE’S MOM HEMMING THE TABLE RUNNERS AND DENNY AND HIS FATHER BUILT THE PERGOLA, OFFICIANT STAND, AND TURNED THE BARN INTO A BAR. ONE OF ANNIE’S BRIDESMAIDS BAKED THE CUPCAKES AND THE MORNING BEFORE THE WEDDING THE BRIDESMAIDS WERE STRINGING TWINKLE LIGHTS. 106 | Vermont Bride LOOKBOOK

DANIELLE AND TIM MET AT A YOUTH ADVISORY COUNCIL CONFERENCE, WHERE THEY WERE EACH REPRESENTING THEIR RESPECTIVE COLLEGES, AND IMMEDIATELY HIT IT OFF. AFTER GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER BETTER, AND SPENDING A COMPETITIVE NIGH BOWLING, IT DID NOT TAKE LONG FOR THE PAIR TO BECOME “OFFICIAL”. WHEN TIM DECIDED TO PROPOSE HE DREW INSPIRATION FROM DANIELLE’S LOVE OF CLASSIC MUSICALS AND PLANNED A FLASH MOB WITH THE HELP OF DANIELLE’S FRIEND, AND DANCER, MICHELE MACKAY. DANIELLE KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO WATCH THE FLASH MOB, BUT HAD NO IDEA THAT TIM WAS PLAYING AN IMPORTANT ROLE. TIM HAD EVEN ARRANGED FOR THEIR CLOSE FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO BE HIDING OUT NEARBY AND FOR A LOCAL BROADCASTING COMPANY TO FILM THE ENTIRE THING. WHEN TIM JUMPED INTO THE CENTER OF THE FLASH MOB DANIELLE WAS SHOCKED BUT STILL DID NOT REALIZE WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN, UNTIL TIM KNELT TO THE GROUND AND BROUGHT OUT THE RING. EVEN THOUGH THE COUPLE MOVED TO FLORIDA SHORTLY AFTER THEIR ENGAGEMENT, THEY KNEW THAT VERMONT WAS WHERE THEY WANTED TO HAVE THEIR WEDDING. HAVING THE CELEBRATION AT A RESORT WHERE ALL OF THEIR GUESTS COULD STAY WITH THEM WAS IMPORTANT TO THEM, AND THEY QUICKLY FELL IN LOVE WITH MOUNT SNOW FOR THE BEAUTY OF THE RESORT, BOTH INSIDE AND OUT, AND THE HELPFULNESS OF THE STAFF.

TIM LEFT HIS TOUCH ON THE DECOR BY CHOOSING HIS FAVORITE ATHLETES TO REPRESENT EACH TABLE, WHICH THEY THEN PRINTED PICTURES OF TO FRAME. OVERALL THEY WANTED EVERYONE TO BE COMFORTABLE AND HAVE FUN.

real wedding THEIR ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLE’S PLANNING THEIR WEDDING IS; “LISTEN TO YOUR MOM, SHE IS ALWAYS RIGHT. GET ADVICE FROM FRIENDS THAT WERE RECENTLY MARRIED—THEY KNOW THE DRILL, AND THEY KNOW YOU. DON’T EVEN THINK FOR A MOMENT ABOUT ANYTHING NEGATIVE- YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL AND SO DOES YOUR WEDDING! JUST ENJOY THE DAY AND DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE LITTLE DETAILS. IT REALLY WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE.”

BOTH JENNA AND MICHAEL’S FAMILY ARE SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, SO THE COUPLE KNEW THEY WOULD HAVE TO HOST A DESTINATION WEDDING. THEY FELL IN LOVE WITH BARROWS HOUSE IN DORSET BOTH DUE TO IT’S BREATHTAKING MOUNTAIN VIEW, BUT ALSO FOR THE SMALL, CHIC RESORT FEEL OF THE VENUE. IT WAS THE PERFECT PLACE FOR THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO ARRIVE ON THE FRIDAY BEFORE THE BIG DAY AND NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT GOING ANYWHERE ELSE FOR THE REST OF THE WEEKEND. JENNA AND MICHAEL OPTED FOR A CLEAR TOPPED TENT FOR THEIR RECEPTION SO THE TENT COULD INVITE IN THE NATURAL SURROUNDINGS AND THEIR GUESTS WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE MOON AND STARS AS THE EVENING PROGRESSED. THE COUPLE WERE INSPIRED BY PARIS, ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES ON EARTH, FOR THEIR THEME. A COLOR PALETTE OF NEUTRAL CREAMS AND WHITES, PAIRED WITH A SOFT BLUSH PINK AND A CLASSIC FRENCH BLUE, PLAYED PERFECTLY WITH THE ROMANTIC AND ELEGANT FEEL OF THE DÉCOR. WOODEN BOXES, WITH FRENCH WORDS OF LOVE STENCILED ON THE SIDES, OVERFLOWING WITH TULIPS ON THE TABLES CREATED A SCENE STRAIGHT FROM A PARISIAN FLOWER MARKET. GUESTS ALSO SIGNED “LOVE LOCKS” TO LEAVE BEHIND FOR THE COUPLE TO REMEMBER THEM BY—AS INSPIRED BY THE PONT DE L’A RCHEVÊCHÉ BRIDGE IN PARIS.

IT'S HELPFUL IN DECIDING WHERE TO SPEND YOUR WEDDING BUDGET AND WHAT YOU CAN CUT BACK ON.

honeymoon hot spots

Most of the high-rise hotels and resorts are located on Palm Beach, this area is more active and a hub for day time activities and nightlife all within steps from most of the hotels in the area. On Eagle Beach, you can find more of the smaller resorts most of which are two stories or no higher than the palm trees. This area is more laid back and still only about a 5-minute drive to Oranjestad and the Palm beach area. If you are looking for a little fun and nightlight most of the resorts have their own in-house casinos and entertainment. There are many options as well around the island mostly in the Palm Beach area where you can enjoy a wide range of activities including a quiet dinner on the beach, listening to a local band or strolling along one of the many piers in Palm Beach. Aruba is full of fun! With the many white sandy beaches and many water activities which include sailing, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, kite-surfing, deep-sea fishing and many other water activities you are sure to have some fun in the sun. There are also a ton of land activities including atv adventures, museums, caves, natural bridges, and jeep tours that will take you around the island to include stops at the California lighthouse, the charming Alto Vista chapel, Bushiribana gold mill ruins, and finishing off on a private island. There are so many different things you can check out you will never be bored. Aruba is an island that offers so much before you leave you will be planning your next trip back for more adventure and relaxation! While I have enjoyed sharing the above information about Aruba I do not want to give away all the secrets!!! If you are looking for more information about Aruba or any other destination, please contact us for more information as we look forward to planning your romantic getaway! – Jessica Fuster, Destinations Found Travel - destinationsfound.com 136 | Vermont Bride LOOKBOOK
