EDITOR’S NOTE the best celebrations—like the most passionate love stories—are all about heart, feeling & history. so why not cull influence from unexpected yet completely classic sources, like the rustic romance of weathered barn boards, or the intricate beauty of vintage lace & hand-hewn cross-stitch? the storied sense of legacy & profound natural beauty of our state just begs to be explored & to inspire both local & destination couples alike.

whether we’re combing wind-whipped beaches or perusing roadside antique shops, we at vermont vows know that planning your wedding here is as much about the spirit of this enchanted locale as it is about sharing the essence of your personal love story. summer here in vermont, like the best marriages, cherishes the treasures of the past while glorifying in the beauty of the present, and this mix of old and new is gorgeously reflected in timeless color palettes.

our “blackwatch + blueberry” color story page [133] is an unlikely marriage of traditional plaids spiced with woodland-inspired sweetness—think juicy jams and textures of burlap and basket-weave. at the same time, fall in love with the delicious pairing of “lobster + lemon” page [115]. cheery tones set the mood for a visual feast of a new type of nautical, as jaunty sailor stripes come together with coral trinkets and beloved treats (both salty and sweet). discover that there’s no place like home with “home-sweet-home” page [97], which is bursting with details as charming as they are kitschy. garden-grown blooms spill from farmyard-found vessels. for a more exotic look, turn to the dazzling “fuchsia aflame” page [151]. the eccentric elegance of deep pinks shines against a backdrop of burnished copper for an effect that’s as sure-fire as a lucky penny. ultimately, whatever colors and gowns find their way into your day, it’s the special and meaningful-to-you details that will light up your memories of your celebration for a lifetime to come.

LETS PRETEND CATERING: Coming from families of foodies, Liane Mendez and Daniel Samson founded their business, Let’s Pretend Catering, with an aim to craft delectable dishes and unforgettable experiences. Inspired by their own fond memories of family meals, this powerhouse pair loves to see couples and their loved ones make memories of their own. “Dining is a sacred celebratory experience,” Liane says. “At weddings, two families become one, and we love that our work is a part of that special moment.”

Dedicated to the details, Liane and Daniel are involved in every aspect of their business. From the first menu consultation to the finishing touches, they revel in every aspect of the process. The duo is having fun with the latest trends in the food biz. “As intimate gatherings have stolen the spotlight from grand galas, we have seen many weddings this year smaller in size and more detailed in food and service,” Daniel says. “Savory snacks have replaced traditional favors, with couples sending loved ones home with surprise late-night treats.”

from creating inspired floral designs to delivering fresh & fun day-of dining, these vermont wedding professionals use their expertise & passions to make your special day spectacular. for more local talent visit, vtvows.com.

STRAY CAT FLOWER FARM: Diana Doll’s personal passion for flowers blossomed into a business in the winter of 1988. One chilly day, she ventured out on a crosscountry skiing expedition for fresh materials to create custom winter wreaths. The following spring she began sowing, growing, and drying flowers. Today, Stray Cat Flower Farm has expanded into a full-fledged farm and floral design collective, offering on-site services and diy bulk flower orders.

“Our interest in growing fresh-cut flowers followed naturally from our support for smallscale agriculture and our desire to be involved in maintaining the working landscape we all appreciate so much,” Diana says. Inspired by innovation, she loves finding new ways to enliven her arrangements. “Pops of crisp white, poppy pods, and young blueberries can make a bouquet yummy and unique,” she says. When winter’s chill settles over the fields, Diana plans on attending floral design workshops to further her expertise.

ADVICE:

don’t feel pressured to come up with every flower for each boutonniere, bouquet & centerpiece. instead, focus on a desired look. allow your florist flexibility to use materials that bring your vision to life without having to depend on a cookie-cutter recipe.

AT THE CEREMONY:

#TRUELOVE:

You may be fine with your guests snapping your arrival at the ceremony, but many couples prefer to see smiling faces, not a sea of glowing smartphones, as they walk down the aisle. Others prefer not to have ceremony pictures posted to sites like Instagram and Facebook before they have a chance to enjoy the moment fully. (Smartphone and social media use at the reception is much harder to restrict.)

A few weeks before the wedding, consider setting up a Dropbox account, special Facebook page, or Facebook album, in which you add guests as “contributors,” for uploading photos and/or establishing a hashtag to tag photos and posts on Instagram and Twitter— this lets everyone share the memories. Print this information with any needed instructions or passcodes in the ceremony program and on little cards to distribute at the reception.

SPELL IT OUT:

Social media is a great way to share treasured memories and to include loved ones — just make

sure to set the parameters in advance so that sharing online doesn’t eclipse the joy of being in the moment.

shares her top wedding-worthy secrets to social media savvy.

Clue in your guests about your social media and photo-sharing preferences on your wedding website, your ceremony program, or at the ceremony with an announcement by a groomsman just before the mother of the groom is seated: “The bride and groom have requested that you turn off your phones and hold all photos and social media posts until they have exited the ceremony.” In fact, doing all three is a good idea.

prepare f or$ (122)!2$

GO WITH THE FLOW:

Prepare for your loved ones to post the inevitable tweets, status updates, and photos. While you may not want guests taking photos at the ceremony, once they’re at the reception it’s virtually guaranteed they’ll start taking pictures of key moments and friends. Just roll with it —you’re sure to enjoy looking through your friends’ pics in the days after the wedding, as much as you’ll enjoy perusing your professional photographer’s album.

go the$ 4).(1!5'$

GET IT ALL ON FILM:

Consider a different kind of “social” media. When a really close friend or relative can’t be at your wedding, a video chat can bring them into your day in ways a phone call can’t. Schedule ten minutes at your reception when you can slip away from the party and give your longdistance guest your full attention. Show them your dress, rings, bouquet, the venue, and any other special details of the day.

be$ 67'.'!(

LIVE IN THE MOMENT:

While sharing fun moments and capturing each detail on film for your social feed can be lots of fun for everyone, the most important thing to keep in mind is to live in the moment—after all, this day comes once in a lifetime! Throughout the day, remind guests (perhaps through a note in the program) that your photographer will be documenting the day for all to see.

the key to keeping guests in the moment is to establish your preferences clearly and early on. ask your wedding party to help spread the word. anna p"t

BEFORE THE RING. Lauren Evans always had a crush on Matt Wells, a handsome, friendly guy a year ahead of her at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Over the years, the pair moved in the same circles, and though Lauren didn’t know it, Matt harbored a secret crush, too. One night on campus, Lauren caught the wrong bus home and found herself face-to-face with Matt. The couple chatted, and he finally asked her on a date. Over dinner, sparks flew, and Matt confessed he’d been planning to “accidentally” take Lauren’s bus home. Collegiate courtship blossomed into true love, and the rest was history. THE PROPOSAL. In the fall of 2011, Matt planned a weekend retreat to the

couple’s favorite getaway, Nantucket. They arrived on the island, dropped their bags off at the inn, and set out to visit their favorite spots. From the Cisco Brewery out to Great Point, Lauren was completely unsuspecting, until they returned to the Wauwinet instead of the inn where they’d left their luggage. “I had always wanted to stay there — it was so beautiful and elegant,” Lauren remembers. Matt led his sweetheart to the hotel’s luxe library, where a vintage box filled with mementos from their relationship waited. “Will you fill this box with me?” he asked on bended knee. THE DAY & DESIGN. Sharing a love of crafting, the couple and their families worked together to bring every detail of the day to life. “We spent the year before poking through antique shops and hand-cutting confetti in our wedding workshop,” Lauren says. “All of the memories we created getting ready for the big day made our wedding all the more special.” The pair drew inspiration from natural wood textures and antique accessories to channel the rustic romance of the locale. Books and maps accented tables topped with burlap and fresh ivory and peach blossoms, as Scrabble letters spelling out meaningful locations added a playful twist.

BEFORE THE RING. A twist of fate and a long wait brought Kelly Broznya and Matt Journalist together. Kelly, a student at Boston College, found herself stuck in line on a busy Saturday night at Ned Devine’s Pub. Her company was a friendly stranger and recent Eagles alum, Matt. Over conversation to pass the time, something special sparked. The couple stayed in touch over the years, and when Kelly graduated and moved to New York City, they visited back and forth. “Eventually, it was obvious we were meant to be,” Kelly says. “Matt moved to the city, and we never looked back.” THE PROPOSAL. One crisp day in Manhattan, the couple took a leisurely

stroll through Central Park, enjoying the fresh air and lush gardens. With marriage on his mind, Matt led Kelly deeper into the park. In the heart of the city that had played such an important role in their love story, Matt got down on bended knee to ask Kelly to be his wife. Kelly, caught completely off-guard but thrilled to her core, could only say, “Yes.” The pair wound their way back through the park hand-in-hand, eager to return home and share the happy news with their favorite people. THE DAY & DESIGN. Rustic romance met garden-party glam at Kelly and Matt’s warm-hearted celebration. Inspired by the lush scenery surrounding the farm, the couple chose a bright palette of petal pinks, purples, and oranges to enliven the more neutral hues of taupe and ivory. Tea light candles in mason jars welcomed guests to the barn with an inviting glow, and cream linens draped simple tablescapes topped with fresh blooms and birch-bark accessories. Kelly and Matt continued the farm-fresh garden theme by offering pint-sized potted succulents as favors. From the sparkling pond just beyond the farm to the custom bark enrobed card box, every aspect of the day captured the pastoral essence of the Green Mountains.

THE PROPOSAL. One night, while Michael was still in business school, he

staged a mock double-date with a classmate and asked Kristen to be ready at his apartment for a nice night on the town. Planning a heartfelt and personal proposal, he was dismayed when Kristen arrived with her brother, Ryan, in tow. “Kristen hates surprises, so I knew I couldn’t put her on the spot in front of anyone,” Michael said. “It had to be a special moment between just us.” Slyly slipping Ryan some cab fare, Michael seized their moment alone and asked Kristen to be his wife.

Their teenage crush faltered after graduation, and it wasn’t until freshman year of college that Michael gathered the courage to ask Kristen to the movies. On that night, something sparked. Though they pursued their dreams in different cities, the couple stayed in touch over the years and eventually moved to Brooklyn to finally be together.

THE DAY & DESIGN. Dreaming of a day infused with elegance and seasonal

splendor, Kristen and Michael celebrated their “I dos” with an eco-chic fete. “We wanted to keep things simple to highlight Vermont’s natural beauty,” Kristen says. And so began the design of their sophisticated soiree with a rustic twist, a celebration crafted to strike the perfect balance between organic and elegant. It was important to the couple to make their special day locally and environmentally sustainable. “From seasonal flowers to reusable decor details, it was a priority to keep things low-impact,” Kristen says. The rich interior of the solar-powered Hermitage Inn glowed with warm candlelight, as mercury-glass vases dotted tables topped with pops of pink and peach blooms. The intimate affair was complete with a Polaroid sign-in station, where guests snapped instant photos and left happy wishes for the newlyweds.

THE PROPOSAL. Sharing a love for the outdoors, Jenny and Matt decided to spend a lazy summer afternoon fishing on Fairfield Pond. Out in the middle of the crystal-clear water, Matt was anxiously waiting for just the right moment to make his move when a ladybug landed on his shoulder. “I knew they were a sign of good luck, and that was my moment,” Matt says. He presented Jenny with a ring in a porcelain box given to him by his grandmother. The serene pond was the perfect place to pop the question.

BEFORE THE RING. In a classic love story of boy meets girl, Jenny Oddy and Matt Orszulak first met when Jenny went to visit her older sister at Keene State College. Mingling with her sister’s friends one evening, she was introduced to her sister’s boyfriend’s friend, Matt. Coincidentally, years down the road, the pair met again, serving as the maid of honor and best man at Jenny’s sister’s wedding to the very same college sweetheart. That night, love was in the air, and something special sparked between them. Later that evening, in a sweet setup, Matt caught the garter and Jenny caught the bouquet—sealing their fate of years of lasting love.

THE DAY & DESIGN. Inspired by the little ladybug that provoked Matt’s proposal, the couple carried a “lucky in love” theme throughout their special day. A vintage marquee feature spelling out LOVE welcomed guests to the barn reception, as glass orbs hung overhead from the eaves, giving the entire space a wonderfully warm glow. “We wanted a combination of natural elements with glam props,” Jenny says. Family photos and heirlooms dotted the decor, as barnboard table runners, apothecary vases, moss, and succulents gave the design a hand-hewn aesthetic. Driftwood tree lounge seating, a diy project, completed the country-chic vibe.

BEFORE THE RING. Cara Robinson and Andrew King’s love story began a little differently than most. They first met under the harsh beam of a surgical lamp, working together in the operating room of Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts. After the procedure was finished, Andrew paged Cara over the hospital speaker, asking her for a ride to the concert they were both attending later that week. The friendly carpool sparked into a full-fledged first date, leaving the lovebirds absolutely smitten. For the next few years, they were inseparable as they split their time between long hours at the hospital, vacations around the globe, and weekend getaways in Vermont.

and Andrew treated themselves to a weekend at one of their favorite Green Mountain getaways, the Okemo Resort in Ludlow. One brisk winter morning before hitting the slopes, Andrew shakily got down on bended knee and said with sweet sincerity, “Cara, you’re my favorite. Will you marry me?” Against the brilliant backdrop of ice and snow, he slipped an Irish claddagh ring onto his bride-to-be’s finger. “The ring represents love, loyalty, and friendship,” Cara says. “It was the perfect symbol to embody the essence of our connection and commitment.” THE DAY & DESIGN. Cara and Andrew welcomed loved ones to enjoy the

crisp beauty of Vermont in the fall. With multiple accommodations at Riverside Farm and nearby Amee Farm, guests were able to settle in and celebrate with the newlyweds all weekend long. On Saturday evening, loved ones gathered beneath the eaves of the Riverside Farm barn for an elegant affair with personal touches. “Our color palette was inspired by the fall foliage,” Cara says. “We wanted a rustic feel with an elegant edge.” Mismatched china and an old-fashioned typewriter made for romantic accessories, and antique keys served as seating assignments to complete the time-worn elegance and vintage whimsy of the day.

THE PROPOSAL. Back in the Northeast, Laura was finishing up a particularly

difficult semester of graduate school. After her last accounting exam, Laura met Sam to check in on her parents’ home, which they were house-sitting. “As we were leaving, Sam stopped me in the mudroom. This was the place we shared so many long goodbyes as teenagers,” Laura says. “After seven years of hellos and goodbyes there, he asked me to marry him. It was so personal and so perfect.”

BEFORE THE RING. Laura French and Sam Rigby grew up together in the same quaint New Hampshire town. Sam attended boarding school away from home, and didn’t meet Laura until they were both nineteen. Young love was in the air as they got acquainted through mutual friends, and when Laura left to attend Bates College in Maine, Sam followed less than a year later. Their teenage romance blossomed into life-long love. After graduation and a few years of long distance, the couple moved to Chile together. Traveling from South America to Texas and Maryland, they came full circle and returned to New England.

THE DAY & DESIGN. Bright and colorful with homespun accents, Laura and Sam’s wedding was a roaring celebration rife with personal touches. “We wanted our special day to be fun and genuinely us,” Laura says. “To make that happen, I spent a lot of time on diy details to make our personalities shine through.” Opting out of a traditional color scheme, the pair chose a collection of vibrant colors with white floral arrangements to add an air of elegance. Golden party animal escort cards welcomed guests to the celebration, as rainbow ribbon runners and yarn-wrapped table numbers continued the theme of playful whimsy. Guests enjoyed late-night snacks of grilled cheese, sweet potato fries, and popcorn as the evening ended with a bonfire, capping off a night full of love and laughter.

BEFORE THE RING. When Diana Martinez set foot on Columbia University’s historic campus, little did she know her someone special was just around the corner. She met Owen Cornwall while planning a conference for fellow classmates and professors. They were both pursuing their PhDs and clicked instantly. It was no question Diana left a lasting impression, as a fast friendship resulted in many late-night study sessions and coffee dates. Getting to know each other over the books, Diana and Owen’s casual courtship blossomed into everlasting love. THE PROPOSAL. When Owen realized Diana was the woman he wanted

to spend his life with, he knew just the place to pop the question. Inspired by his sweetheart’s love of architecture, he planned to propose in her favorite building in New York City, Grand Central Terminal, followed by a celebratory dinner at her favorite restaurant, Blue Hill at Stone Barns. For weeks he eagerly anticipated the special day, until he couldn’t wait any longer. “Owen was so excited, he proposed to me four days before the big date in our cozy apartment,” Diana says. “We were able to enjoy the celebratory activities without any nerves —it was absolutely amazing.” THE DAY & DESIGN. The couple’s celebration at Owen’s family home was the essence of country-chic, with antique accessories and diy decor. Inspired by the natural and neutral hues of the Vermont landscape, Diana and Owen chose a color palette of soft ivory and cool green with pops of dusty rose. Fresh blooms spilled from vintage pewter vases onto weathered wood tables, topped with linen table runners and radish bulb favors. Guests were guided to their seats by cardboard-tag place cards, whimsically tied to an oak tree. “The most important details of our day were those we made ourselves,” Diana says. From invitations to menus, the bride designed all of the paper goods, completing the personal sentiments of the day.

Polished to perfection, this kitschy-chic palette infuses timeless elegance with playful panache. Inspired by Grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treasures, a garden party-gone-glam comes to life with an eclectic collection of old-fashioned accessories, fresh-picked florals, and dainty chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all dusted with a generous sprinkle of glitter. Shimmer and shine pair perfectly with velvety crimson and hot-pink hues, giving venerable refinement a refreshing note of modern party pizzazz. Unearth the forgotten glow of burnished heirlooms, and infuse your celebration with the sparkle of time-tested love.
