2. ITALY & NATURE-INSPIRED NEW ENGLAND SUMMER WEDDING IN SHELBURNE, VERMONT – LIZZIE & JASON
“I was hoping to create an elegant summer Italian style picnic experience mixed with the honest simplicity and natural beauty of Vermont. The unbelievable green space at All Souls, which overlooks the lake with the Adirondacks in the distance, felt like the perfect embodiment of that aesthetic. Aside from the ceremony itself, our “first look” was the most calming and meaningful moment of the day for me – all the anticipation and nerves of the morning melted away as soon as we saw each other, and it was incredible to just take a breath, be together, and acknowledge that the wedding was finally upon us.” – Lizzie

“We chose Sarah’s family’s home because of the meaning the place has to us. We spent many weekends there when we lived in Williamstown and Sarah’s parents came to know Tom and our friends very quickly with all of our Party Barn parties, hiking and biking weekends, paddle tennis tournaments and all the many meals we cooked together in the kitchen. The property is exceptionally beautiful and ever since Sarah’s parents moved there and ever since Sarah knew she wanted to marry Tom, there was never any other option – it was an easy choice.”
“There were many wonderful emotional parts of the day. It started with the private moment I shared with my mom as we got dressed. She zipped me up and we both put on our matching earrings (custom made by my mom and me from a combination of jewelry from both my grandmothers). My mom and my bridesmaids helped me for me pin on my veil (worn by three generations before me, including my mom on her wedding day) – it was a delicate process and many hands were necessary!” – Sarah

The reception was held at the elegant New England Coach Barn, where Tara’s vision of luxurious florals and candlelit details came together perfectly. “We will never forget how proud our parents were when they saw the Coach Barn reception setup for the first time.” The bride’s father, Bill, kicked off things off with a touching, hilarious toast, recounting Tara’s performance of “I’m a little teapot” as a child. “All the speeches were unforgettable. The maid of honor’s speech was powerful, eloquent, and touched everyone in the room.”
7. LUSH FLORAL WEDDING AT MAQUAM BARN AND WINERY – MELANIE & MAX
Melanie and Max held their lush floral wedding at Maquam Barn & Winery in Vermont. A floral arch framed their outdoor ceremony and elegant florals adorned the reception. The wedding was full of beautiful moments beneath a cloudless summer sky, sweet moments with loved ones, and the gorgeous vistas.
The ceremony was framed by a lush arbor of white hydrangea, blush pink chrysanthemum and champagne roses by Clayton Floral. The backdrop to such an opulent floral arch was an ocean of green bound by distant mountains, making the scene truly picture-perfect. It is also the location for their private vow reading. A private vow exchange offers the opportunity for the wedding couple to connect in whatever way they like best.

“We chose our beautiful venue in New Haven, VT because Mitch grew up in Montpelier, VT and much of his family still lives in the area and I also have ties to VT having worked for VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations for many years. Our friends were gracious enough to allow us to be married on their property and have our reception at their quintessential VT barn. We couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful setting than Vermont.”
11. CROSS STREET FLOWER FARM WEDDING INSPIRATION – IN NORWELL, MASSACHUSETTS
