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.

Loft Wedding Inspiration

Loft Wedding Inspiration | Modern Urban Weddings | Vermont Bride Magazine

With a laid-back, urban vibe and industrial feel, hosting your wedding in a loft style space can be the perfect way to acheive a modern, casual-chic theme. The bare bones architectural details of a loft are the perfect blank canvas for you to style and decorate in a million different ways. From a minimilist, all white pallette, to more intricate installations of flowering vines and hundreds of candles - it is open to your interpretation and inspiration.

In the Summer 2015 Lookbook, we feature a light and airy styled photo shoot showcasing bright yellows, vibrant greens, and a concrete block centerpiece. Fun vintage furniture is placed for lounging and drinking, and the bright white accents shower the space with light and warmth. But this is certainly not the only direction you can take for loft decor. We gathered together some of our favorite inspiration from all over to show a few other options in loft wedding style.

Inspiration | Meant To Bee

Honey Yellow and Purple Wedding Inspiration | Vermont Bride Magazine

We can't get enough of this gorgeous inspiration photo shoot from Lis Photography and Sarah Jo Willey, owner of Creative Muse Floral Design, featuring deep, luxurious purples and rich, golden honey! It is one of our favorite features from the current Summer/Fall issue of Vermont Bride Magazine (get your copy here!), but there were so many amazing photos that we knew we needed to share a few more on the blog. There are so many eye-catching details; from the amazing floral arrangements by Creative Muse, to the oh-so-chic yellow fascinator with a black veil and purple flower. The color combinations are warm and rich - a perfect combination for a late summer or fall wedding.

Following with the "Bee" theme, they cleverly used a vintage bee hive poster and some local Vermont honey for favors. Pops of yellow brighten up the saturated purples and the tablescape looks like it was meant to be sitting amongst the fallen autumn leaves. The real show stopper, though, is the delicately lace adorned bridal gown from Fiori Bridal. In an antique white, it adds a breath of fresh air to the rest of the heavy color scheme. The vintage feel is lovely with the old-fashioned feeling fascinator and the added black velvet bolero kicks the wow factor up a notch.

We love the addition of the violin and the Vermont farmhouse backdrop - it really transports you to a different, and more romantic, time period. A beautifully artistic design that captures the victorian passion and romance. To view more from this feature, pick up the Summer/Fall 2015 issue of Vermont Bride!

Real Wedding | Amy & Joel

Amy & Joel | Vintage Wedding | Vermont Bride Magazine

Amy and Joel’s vintage inspired wedding was truly a blend of cultures. Joel and Amy met overseas and dated long-distance— she was living in Rome, and he in Ohio. They gave their relationship a fair chance though. After months of Skype sessions and handwritten letters, they found themselves in love. Joel proposed shortly after moving to Rome, and they began planning a perfect-for-them wedding that reflected all they hold dear: friends, family, and special touches. They had many Italian friends fly in for it, and had Italian traditions incorporated into their wedding day— Scripture read in Italian during their ceremony, Italian food at their reception, gelato with the wedding cake, and the Italian ribbon-cutting ceremony as Amy left for the wedding ceremony. We also fell in love with all of the charming, special details from the day.

Amy is a darling artistic person, and made most of the decor herself. Including the vintage paper backdrop at the reception. The bunting is made from her grandmother’s scrap fabric bin and Amy hand-drew the olive-leaf motif on their invitations and program. Vintage also played a big role in the decor — They served dinner and dessert on china that Amy collected at vintage stores and yard sales for months before the wedding. It’s the little, personal details that always end up being the most meaningful. Amy wore a gold bracelet — the same one worn by her mother, sister and grandmother on their wedding days. While out on a regular weekend trip to the farmer’s market near her parents’ house, Amy met a woman selling flowers and decided that wildflower bouquets would be the most natural accompaniment to her sweet wedding decor. Homemade buckeyes and maple syrup favors were the finishing touch to their heartfelt, made-with-love celebration.

Angela & Shawn's Wedding | VermontBrideMagazine.com

Angela and Shawn's wedding was full of handmade details, from Angela's sister sewing and crafting much of the decor, to her mom picking and canning jam for the favors. It was a gorgeously sunny and blue skied day, gathered with their closest friends and family at The Old Lantern in Charlotte. Their picture-perfect moment was topped with stunning view of Lake Champlain and timeless photos taken on the covered bridge nearby. It simply could not have been any more idyllic!

Natural elegance was the theme for this light and fresh wedding, captured by Civic Photos. Morgan and Kyle were married under a vine covered pergola at the Tuscan Courtyards, in Texas City, as ribbons and candles swayed around them in the breeze. Lots of personal history could be found in the details, like the program which featured fun facts about the couple and their relationship. Each bridesmaid wore a different style of dress, befit their personality, which went perfectly with the laid back, casual feel the couple wanted to portray. It was the perfect blend of traditional, sophisticated decor and comfortable, home-spun ambiance.

Burke Mountain, Burke, Vermont

The weather in Vermont is unpredictable and, especially in the late Spring, the chance of rain is always imminent. Despite the drizzle, or perhaps because of it, Erica and Andrew's Burke Mountain wedding was ethereal and romantic. Soft mist enveloped their ceremony and the dewy landscape came alive with life and new growth all around them. Quite the perfect reception for a new marriage! Here is what Erica had to say about the highlights of the day:

If you like having fun, games, and pops of bright color, then a carnival themed wedding will be right up your alley. Carnivals evoke an old-fashioned feel of ring-toss, balloons, and strolling under strings of lights. Add in the aroma of fried dough, candy apples, and popcorn - and you have yourself a perfect, fun-filled day. It's no wonder that carnival and fair themed weddings have been popular for many years and are still going strong. There is unlimited color palette potential, as long as you incorporate something bright, bold, and cheerful. And you can make it as casual or elaborate as you want - with custom candy stations, lawn games, fair-inspired appetizers, bunches of balloons, and punchy fabrics.

Something-blue-3

 

The old saying, "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue", still has a lot of meaning to modern-day brides. Fun and meaningful traditions such as these are at the heart of wedding history and give ample room for injecting your own personal spin on things. The color blue is a classic in wedding design and easily coordinates with a myriad of other colors. From elegent to bohemian, the options are endless when starting with blue as your foundation.
