Scarlet and Dusty Blue Wedding Inspiration | Color Palette | Vermont Bride Magazine

Scarlet & Dusty Blue Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

Red and blue is a classic color combination that never goes out of style. Give it a modern twist with a sensuous shade of scarlet red and dusty blue with soft gray accents. This bold and powerful duo fit just as easily in a rustic, barn theme as a modern, industrial setting. With July Fourth right around the corner we couldn't think of a better time to share these gorgeous images from our Summer/Fall 2016 issue of Vermont Bride magazine.

Callie & Canaan Boho Vermont Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

When photographer Lauren Alisse found out her best friend Callie was getting married she knew exactly how she wanted to photograph the boho-beauty. Then the bride asked her to be her Maid-of-honor! Despite it sounding impossible, she pulled out being both the MOH and the photographer for the wedding (thanks to a second-shooter friend). The entire wedding was a group effort of friends and family coming together to make it all happen. A bridesmaid hand crafted the centerpieces out of dried flowers and drift wood that the groom's mother collected. She also made decorations out of wooden circles and yarn - perfect for a bohemian feel! Callie, the bride, purchased fabric from a local shop in Burlington and attached them to mason jars with the help of her mother and another bridesmaid. Lauren also made the bridesmaid's bouquets out of babys breath, and Callie's mom made a handkerchief for her to carry down the aisle as her "something new".

Jess & Chris | Real Vermont Love Story | The Skinner Barn | Waitsfield Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

Jess and Chris first met at Saint Michael's College, in Colchester, Vermont, and began dating soon after graduation. They fell in love in Burlington, and Jess grew up in Vermont, so the state had special meaning to them both. Even though they moved out of state they go back to Vermont every chance they get to play outside, eat, drink, and be with friends and family. The special meaning, and natural beauty of the Green Mountain State, made it an obvious choice for the location of their wedding.

Jess and Chris are relaxed and laid back so their celebration was the same. The cocktail hour was held outside on the lawn, compete with lawn games like stilts, corn hole, ladder ball, and bocce. An array of local cured meats and cheese from Vermont, and fresh shucked oysters from Massachusetts (where the couple now reside) were on hand as well. Having good food, drinks, and most importantly fun was the focus of the day.

To read more of Jess and Chris' love story and see more photos of their wedding, pick up a copy of the Summer/Fall issue of Vermont Bride Magazine, out at the end of May!

Amy & Tim Real Vermont Wedding | Isham Family Farm | Williston, Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

Friends since their freshman year at the University of Vermont, Amy and Tim dated for seven years before Tim popped the question under a giant oak tree at a surprise picnic. The couple were living in New Orleans at the time, which was a consideration at first for their wedding location, but the meaning that Vermont held for them won out in the end. The beautiful views and weather in the summer helped tip the scales as well.

Looking for a venue that was not too cookie-cutter, they fell in love with the laid-back atmosphere at Isham Family Farm. Amy and Tim knew it was a place they would look forward to visiting throughout the years. They even cut down their first Christmas tree as a married couple on the farm this past winter.

Christen & Jeremy Real Vermont Wedding | The Ponds at Bolton Valley | Vermont Bride Magazine

Christen and Jeremy have an impeccable eye for detail and spent countless hours making everything perfect for their big celebration. They taught themselves how to do letterpress for their invites, coasters, and signage. Then they even grew the flowers to place along the fireplace. Handmade table settings and a plethora of family photographs made it clear that everything was done with the utmost care and love.They had beautiful blue skies for their ceremony, and the rains didn't arrive until the reception, which helped to drop the temperature a bit for their guests to dance it up all night on the dance floor. A sparkler sendoff was the picture-perfect ending to a beautiful day.

With the recent rise in microbreweries, and their loyal followers, it is not surprising that many couples are making their favorite beer selections a focal point of their reception. It certainly helps that Vermont boasts forty microbreweries of its own, making it number one in the nation for microbrews per capita. With so many to choose from it is easy to find something for every discerning taste.

This beer infused wedding inspiration is fun, fresh, and casual - with a good dose of romantic pink touches and vintage flair. We love the incorporation of hop buds in the tablescape and who wouldn't want a set of customized pint glasses or a growler etched with your wedding date?

Lauren & Justin | Real Vermont Wedding | The Round Barn, Warren, Vermont | Vermont Bride Magazine

We love the rustic, woodsy details of Lauren and Justin's wedding at the Round Barn in Warren. Lauren and Justin chose Vermont for their celebration after enjoying countless weekends skiing in the Green Mountains. The soft, green foliage mixed with weather-worn wood, and a touch of moss, and of course beautiful flowers - it was truly a country fairytale held in a charming barn. How much more "Vermont" can you get than that?

Maria & Justin | Real Vermont Wedding | Rustic Winter Barn Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

The chill of the winter snow did not dampen the warm, heartfelt mood at Maria and Justin's festive wedding at The Mountain Top Inn & Resort. The softly falling snow only added to the romantic and cozy ambiance of the rustic-barn-in-the-woods feeling. Snowflakes and skis adorned the venue and the newly wed couple took an intimage and magical ride through the snowy trees on a horse-drawn sleigh.

Valerie & Andrew's Vermont Barn Wedding | Real Love Stories | Vermont Bride Magazine

Valerie and Andrew's wedding was full of unique and amazing country details, like antique door frames propped in the field as an entrance to the ceremony, or a rustic barn board surface set up as a guest book where the guests could draw or write messages to the happy couple. The bright yellow sunflowers popped against the deep, blue sky and the rustic, country soiree went on well into the night.
