Early Fall Nuptials in Nature

Mallery and Ryan tied the knot on a perfect early fall day in the wooded beauty surrounding Jay Peak in Northeastern Vermont.  Sheady Acres provided the laid-back, natural ambiance that the couple wanted for their intimate gathering of friends and family.  Mallery was a relaxed bride with a clear vision for natural simplicity.  We accented the space with lots of eucalyptus and sourced locally-grown dahlias for the lush bouquets.  Natural simplicity: mission accomplished!  Check out these breathtaking photos by Jennifer Langille Photography.  Be inspired!

Spring in the Garden

Elaine and Matt traveled from NYC to get married on the grounds of The Barns at Lang Farm.  The bucolic surroundings, stone patios, gardens in full bloom, and rustic barn were the perfect setting for their June nuptials.  Elaine and Matt chose a palette anchored in bold blue and yellow.  We added pops of pink, violet, and lavender and used lots of locally sourced flowers and botanicals.  Fragrant lavender, oriental lilies, and lupines were fragrant stand-outs in all of the floral designs.  I'm drooling over these images by Boris Zaretsky.  If this first kiss capture isn't the most emotive, raw moment of pure bliss, I'm not sure what is!  Be inspired.

Romance on the Summer Slopes

Jackie and Eric tied the knot on a lovely summer day in August.  Early morning rain moved the ceremony inside.  They rolled with it and the weather nodded back in return with beautiful sun and dramatic skies all afternoon.  The summer slopes of Sugarbush Resort was the perfect destination for their family and friends to join them in celebration.  Enjoy these photographs by Root and Bud Weddings.

Rustic Glam Wedding on the Mountainside

Caity & Jake tied the knot at Sheady Acres, a unique destination on Jay Peak in the heart of the northern Green Mountains of Vermont.  Caity's vision for a rustic glam event came together in shades of blush and rose gold with lots of wood and glass details.  We featured roses, lisianthus, and peonies in her floral palette.  Enjoy these gorgeous photos by Sabin Gratz.

Blushy Summer Romance

Kelly & Pat's Fourth of July wedding at Jay Peak Resort brought elements of shabby chic, summer whimsy, and romantic elegance together in a way that was a true reflection of Kelly's personality. The bride made the bridesmaid dresses and collected countless vessels, candelabras, vintage books, and eclectic decor items for the reception.  We brought her vision together with a palette of blush, soft blues and greens, white, and ivory.  Featured flowers and botanicals included roses, peonies, ranunculus, tweedia, amaranthus, astilbe, nigella, and sea star fern.

Why I Love April

There are many reasons why I love the month of April...
It's my birthday monthIt really starts to feel like Spring in Northern VermontMigrating birds come back and fill the previously empty winter air with songThe evening chorus of spring peepers DaffodilsCool damp earthWaking up to the sun through my east-facing bedroom windowFuzzy gray pussy willowsTaking my '62 Chrysler Newport out of winter storageWatching my son jump in puddlesDigging out the little stream that runs across the side hill Morning coffee on the deckThe feeling of rebirth and rising up that comes after a long northern winter Do you love April, too?  I'd love to hear why!
Creatively Yours, SJ
