From traditional and elegant to boho and casual, a couple's style informs each design choice and detail on their wedding day. Here are a few of our favorite details and designs from 2021 Vermont weddings.

FRESH & FLORAL
As a nod to the groom's Georgia roots, Lindsey added whole and halved peaches into Clayton Floral's amazing green garlands (also peep that archway installation - it's UNBELIEVABLE), and painted custom place cards, menus and table numbers to include peaches as well. This Maquam Barn wedding is definitely a highlight of the year. (Photo: Julia Luckett Photography)
THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL
This "camp" inspired lakeside wedding designed by I Dews Design & Events was equal parts fun, beautiful, and sentimental. Their wedding incorporated nods to their family, including the groom's grandfather's UVM beer stein in their tablescapes. The mother of the Groom handcrafted the bride's bold, beautiful floral crown.

A CELEBRATION OF CAKES
Why have one cake when you can have a whole table of them? We love this display of multiple cakes (we especially love the gold brushstroke design) by The Goose Chase Cake Designs. It creates a huge visual impact and provides a variety of flavor options for guests! (Photo: Dear Edith & Lily)
FRESH & FESTIVE
The chandeliers, the drapery, the neon sign and the pink tufted chairs ... we can't get enough of this design by Jaclyn Watson Events. It's classically beautiful, but with a bit of a fresh update! (Photo: Rodeo & Co)
ELEGANCE UNDER THE TENT
This couple, both graphic designers, designed their own (super cool) wedding logo, and made these candles - holders and all - as gifts for all their guests. (Photo: K Lenhart Photography)
THE SEATING CHART THAT MAKE US STAND UP
This seating chart floral display by Nectar and Root is one of the most unique, lovely design choices we've seen this year. It's a small sample of the gorgeousness that is this wedding by Lindsey Leichthammer Events at the Inn at Grace Farm is gorgeous. (Photo: Jenna Brisson Photography)
The bride, a teacher, asked her students to write down what love and marriage mean to them. The resulting cards are sweet, adorable, and unique additions to each table. (Photo: Love Wins Photography)
DINNER PARTY GOALS
This al fresco dinner party at The Grafton Inn is stunning; we love the bright florals and lanterns down the center of the table. It's casually elegant, and oh-so-fun. (Photo: Loveland Creative)
THE PERFECT VERMONT CHEESEBOARD
We love how The Linen Shop's neutral table liners show off the long farmhouse tables and lay the perfect backdrop for the lush greenery. Topped off with oodles of greenery and twinkling lights, and we feel like we're in a garden paradise! (Photo: Cassi Claire)

Quick recap: what is Vermont Weddings Best of 2021 Series?
A little backstory if you're unfamiliar: we started the Best of series last year (2020) to highlight some of the amazing work by the talented teams in the Vermont wedding industry. It's an opportunity to both celebrate a year's worth of weddings and inspire couples who are planning a future Vermont wedding. (A quick note on the word "best": the intention isn't to make this a competition between weddings, but to share a small, but representative, sample of the weddings in Vermont this year. To that end, please know that we love each and every wedding that was submitted, and the final picks are carefully chosen based on a variety of factors to create a compelling series.)
