Vermont Winter Wedding: Gina and Nate’s Dance Like You Don’t Give a Buck Reception

I love when clients can bring me ideas but need help putting it all together. Gina, a news anchor here in Vermont and her groom, Nate, a marketing expert wanted something different, something that screamed who they were as individuals, and who they were as a couple. For them, this meant a formal event, but with a casual environment with dancing and food all night, nothing too traditional while combining their love for a luxury mountain lodge in winter, lots of sparkle and one big party. Got it? Well, we did and we are so glad we met and worked with Our Two Hearts Photography – they captured all these amazing details and moments!

The ceremony environment was classically elegant. Simple in design, the focus was on Gina and Nate and their marriage vows.

A sparkly – winter wedding needs quite a bit of sparkle right? Well, we draped tables for  with sequined linen, produced sparkly risers for all the details and then let the candle light bring the natural twinkle. OH, and finding a small gold buck for a “dance like you don’t give a buck” reception was a definite bonus.

Vermont Real Wedding: Sweet Citrus Shades and Peaches

This was our first wedding at Reading Farms Estate and our first time working with Grazier Photography. All I can say is I am overwhelmed with how wonderful Enna and Matt captured this fabulous Estate. Reading Farms is about 20 minutes South of Woodstock. Its location allows guests to make the most of the Woodstock area, while still hosting your wedding at a very private, luxury estate.  Reading-Farms-Estate-Wedding in VermontPrivate Estate Wedding in Vermont by Storied Events Vermont Private Estate Wedding With Storid Events Private home destination wedding in Vermont

The grounds at Reading Farms Estate have it all. Gardens, Ponds, rolling hills, tree lined paths, barns and of course a great tent site. But as beautiful as the estate is, nothing compared to our bride this sun-soaked afternoon.  Vermont destination wedding planner Storied Events Vermont Destination Wedding Design Vermont Destination Wedding Flowers and Design Citrus inspired wedding in Vermont

Blomma Flicka worked their magic to create a clean, citrus / peach inspired wedding. With a tree-lined ceremony site, a beautiful barn to display escort “felt acorns” to the clean lines of the reception tent, this couple’s vision was captured perfectly.  Private Estate Wedding in New England New England Destination Wedding Planner Vermont Wedding Planner Vermont Wedding Design by Storied Events

A farm to table reception prepared by Let’s Pretend is always delicious and far from “wedding food.” Each bite is worthy of praise. Their creativity shines in all their presentations  – and guests (and wedding professionals alike) were drooling over the Lincoln log bacon towers.  Vermont Wedding Design Vermont Wedding Citrus Colors Vermont Wedding yellows and navy blue Vermont Destination Wedding Designer Vermont Wedding Planner Vermont Outdoor Tent Weddings Vermont Luxury Wedding Vermont Luxury Wedding Planner

Real Wedding: Culinary delight in Barnard, Vermont

With frigid temperatures outside this morning, we are warming up with a bit of sunshine and warm colors! One of our sweetest couples (we are respecting their privacy – and their names/faces will be withheld) hosted their wedding and reception at one of our favorite locations, the Barnard Inn.

This is one of those great wedding locations we can always count on for AMAZING food, great service and a fantastic environment. The close proximity to Woodstock is also a bonus. There are no rooms here, but you will find breathtaking gardens, several opportunities for ceremony locations and a true farm to table dining experience. Dinner is often gathered from the gardens in the back field.

When our couple from Washington, D. C. placed their trust in Storied Events to find the perfect location for them, we knew right away the Barnard Inn was perfect for their ceremony and reception. Turned out we were right and the details were stunning.

We were so thrilled to work with one of our favorite photographers, Orchard Cove and collaborate with the very talented Erin Ostreicher Designs to make this wedding day a laid back, yet elegant affair.

A little sparkle and elegance was added to the tent via sequin chevron runners on farm tables. Complimenting linens dressed the remainder of the dining tables.
