Vermont winter weddings are so magical! Angela and Matt planned their day at Lake Bomoseen Lodge with hints of vintage glamour and Vermont charm. Tipsy Tulip Designs created beautiful wintry floral designs and McNeil Reedy created a timeless look for Matt and his groomsmen. We always recommend hiring a videographer, and they chose Eightzero2 Productions to capture their wedding day perfectly (see their wedding video below)!
Six years earlier, Angela and Matt attended a winter wedding together in Vermont. Even though they had initially never pictured a winter wedding for themselves, it was so beautiful and enchanting, they knew one day a Vermont winter wedding would be a part of their story as well.
Gorgeous Winter Wedding Details
Instead of a first look before the ceremony, Angela and Matt decided to do a first touch instead. Matt didn’t want to see Angela in her dress before the ceremony, but she knew her nerves could not withstand waiting until the ceremony entrance. They stood around the corner of the front porch on Pine Cottage and held hands, laughed, cried, and exchanged a couple of cheeky remarks.
Romantic Reception at Lake Bomoseen Lodge
After their ceremony, the couple headed out onto the frozen Lake Bomoseen to take portraits. With temperatures in the mid-teens, Angela came prepared with her fur shrug, snow books, and her “something blue”: Vermont Darn Tough boot socks!
Right before their reception began they decided to do a private reveal of their reception space upstairs in the Loft. While everyone was downstairs in the Taproom wrapping up cocktail hour it gave them 10 minutes to just stop and be present with each other, and savor the bliss of finally being husband and wife. Like everyone says, the day flies by, so one of my biggest tips is to find a few minutes for just the two of you!
Taking these few minutes allowed them to take in all of the details of the reception space (without the blur of the music or people). It ended up being their favorite moment because the DJ was setting up and offered to cue their first dance song, “Joy of My Life” by Chris Stapleton, so they had an impromptu “unofficial” first dance just the two of them surrounded by romantic candlelight.
