Honoring a Decade of Love

“Celebrated nuptials and receptions”, Storied Events’ first tag line. Ten years later, I look back and am speechless. I am truly in awe of the clients and colleagues I work with every day. I am blessed with an incredible staff that is ever-evolving, patient and growing, while at the same time always changing, wearing many hats. To each person and company that helps to create what Storied Event is and will be, I thank you. Thank you to the amazing, creative clients that find their way into our world. We honored to help you create memories. My heart could not be bigger! This year we will be #honoringadecadeoflove on social media and with a few special surprises along the way. 7_gold-heart



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: Laura & Robert in Chester, Vermont

Patience is so difficult when you really want to share something you love! I’ve been holding on to these beautiful images by Belathee Photography forever… and I am so thrilled to finally share the wedding of Laura and Robert. The wedding was featured on Snippet & Ink yesterday, so forgive us if you’ve seen some of these images already, but you can never get too much of stunning wedding!

Fox Chair Mountain Farm in Chester, Vermont was the perfect backdrop to host a weekend full of events. This wedding location is truly a lovely blend of architecture, rivers, and fields. The small barn and perfect tent site are a bonus too! vt wedding_location_MG_2461Working with Laura and Robert was an incredible experience. I felt like I got to know them just a bit more than I do most couples. It might have something to do with switching venues (and regions of Vermont!) mid-way through the planning process, but we certainly found the perfect place for their celebration! From the incredible ceremony and details throughout you can see all the time and love this couple put into the festivities. It helps the bride is a talented graphic designer and the groom, a composer.

Sunshine, music, pre-ceremony lemonade and ice-d tea greeted guests. Vermont Country WeddingStunning florals by Ariella Chezar graced the entire property. Laura’s bouquet was breathtaking.

Vermont Real Wedding: Mandy & Andrew at the Lang Barn

When it comes to Vermont destination weddings, Mandy and Andrew hit it out of the park! Originally, a large, Florida based wedding was in the works, but it never felt right to the two of them. So just a few months before they wanted to tie the knot, I got a call from Mandy’s mom and the rest was history! Shortly after that call, the Lang Barn in Essex was the new destination and well, you can see for yourself everything that followed! The wedding was a magical, love filled day. Storied Events VT Destination Wedding Vermont Catholic WeddingVT DESTINATION WEDDING Vermont Wedding planned by Storied Events Vermont Destination WeddingThe guests stayed at the The Essex Resort, just down the road from the Lang Barn (reception site). In the short time, we also managed to execute a catholic ceremony at the Holy Family Church.  I knew Mandy and Andrew were very much in love, but looking back, these photos really say it all.Vermont Wedding Barn Vermont Wedding Barn Vermont Destination Wedding Location Vermont  Wedding Design Vermont Wedding Design Vermont Destination Wedding Vermont Destination Wedding Vermont Destination Wedding Ben and JerrysOf course the night ended with a sweet tooth – Ben and Jerry’s. I was so honored to work with Mandy, Andrew and their families. It is even a wonderful blessing to keep in touch and watch their beautiful growing family. Thank you for letting me be part of such an amazing wedding and all of your life events!

Happy Valentine’s Week

Love is in the air! It is Valentine’s week and I am going to kick it off by sharing one of the intimate Valentine’s Day weddings Storied Events planned at Stowe Mountain Lodge.  The ceremony, held in the golf cottage, provided a perfect space for guests to gather. Cider donuts, warm cider drinks and a cozy fireplace set the tone. Valetines Day Intimate Ceremony Storied Events.Valetines Day
