Stephanie & Robby's Safari Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Robby and Stephanie dreamed of a rustic style wedding full of sentiment and designed to pull the heartstrings. They met in Kindergarten and both have a special place in their heart for animals, especially since Stephanie's father is part owner of Safari Wilderness Ranch. Stephanie and Robby decided that the barn at the ranch was the perfect backdrop for their nuptials and celebration. Stephanie's vision of a romantic, simple, rustic, yet elegant wedding was filled with vintage details such as authentic butter churns, mason jars, mini cobbler favors made on site, custom made beer bar, and customized mason jar placecards. The day included the most perfect weather for an outdoor intimate ceremony, breathtaking flowers and gorgeous dresses. Stephanie and Robby were wed surrounded by their loved ones and wild African and Asian animals.

You could not have asked for a more gorgeous day than the one Karla and Miles had for their wedding at The Hildene in Manchester, Vermont. The sky was the perfect shade of blue and the sun illuminated the stunning foliage in the gardens at The Hildene, making it seem like something out of a fairytale. With stunning mountain vistas, bluebird skies, and a garden bursting with colors, it was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple.

Tia and Daniel's beautifully rustic and simple wedding took place down a bumpy, dirt road, far from any cell service but surrounded by the rural oasis of Vermont. Wild flower bouquets a billowy, bohemian gown, and a daisy chain crown set the tone for this down-to-earth celebration of love and togetherness. Throw in some wood-fired pizza, organic honey favors, and a lot of laughter, and you have the makings of a truly Vermont made wedding. Their laid back, campgroud gathering was complete with homemade pies, handmade signs, and a charming cabin.

Chelsea and Thomas had just made a life-altering commitment with each other - the purchase of their first home together, in Underhill, Vermont - when Thomas presented Chelsea with another, his marriage proposal. It may seem a little home-spun, but for Chelsea and Thomas home-spun is just their speed. They grew up together, going to elementary and high school together, in the small town of Hinesburg, Vermont. Their wedding day was full of personal, home-spun touches from their closest friends and family. Here is more on what Chelsea had to share about their special day:

Today we are bringing you some charming wedding inspiration from the peach state of Georgia! Jess and Matt's late May nuptuals took place at Pineola Farms, a 12 acre pecan orchard - a fitting backdrop for their modern-country style. The fusion of styles came together beautifully, from cowgirl boots paired with a crystal belted flare gown, to gray chevron striped tablecloths paired with rustic, wild flowers atop chunky wood slices. The event was capped off with a vintage, green pickup truck for the perfect photo opps.

Jess and Matt's color palette consisted of shades of teal and white, with wood and chalkboard details. The bouquets were rustic bunches of local wild flowers bound with burlap, which were echoed in the centerpieces on the tables. Billowy white paper pom poms adorned the seats and arbor at the ceremony, which echoed Jess' wedding gown skirt. Overall, we think Jess and Matt did a fabulous job at combining sleek, modern elements with a rustic setting.

Probably one of the single most important decisions to make regarding your wedding, after the actual date, would be what venue to host it at. For those that have day-dreamed about their wedding day, and already started planning it pre-engagement, this may be an easy task - but for most it is a difficult decision. Often guest count and budget come into play when narrowing down the options, but also the type of venue is an important factor to consider. Vermont has many different styles of venues and locations to choose from and the number of choices can be overwhelming.

If you live in Vermont, starting with venues close by can be an obvious place to start. However, don't let distance discourage you from venturing out beyond your 'burb. Many venues offer on-site accommodations which can be well worth the cost as it eliminates the need for other expenses, such as transportation, and all of your guests can stay at the same place allowing the party to extend later into the night and the entire weekend. Plus you have the added benefit of discovering a new part of Vermont and avoiding having your wedding at the same venue as all of your friends.

With so many venues to pick from, it can be hard to decide, but there are some basic factors that should go into your decision:
