Sugarbush Resort is, of course, a huge ski destination in the winter, but it’s also the perfect venue for a May wedding! Liz and Nick had been together for ten years and engaged for three when COVID forced them to push their wedding an extra year. Everyone was SO excited to finally have their special day; plus, it was one of the first events post-Covid shut down and everyone was ready to party! Kelsey Regan Photography was there to capture it all.
Both Liz and Nick went to college in Vermont and loved it so much they have chosen to build their life here post-college. They specifically chose Sugarbush Resort for their wedding so all of their guests could stay with them on the property. They were able to spend lots of quality time with their guests for the entire weekend and it made for a fun after-party!
Bright Florals & Meaningful Wedding Details
Liz’s mom, Linda, is a florist, so flowers were a huge focus of the day – both for the ceremony and the reception. It was Linda’s dream to make these flowers ones to remember, and they certainly were! She designed an incredible arch with flowers covering the entire arch from start to finish. At the end of the aisle, there were big, bright arrangements atop two whiskey barrels. Everything from the bouquets to the table arrangements looks gorgeous for a spring wedding! Plus they complimented the unique floral bridesmaid dresses!
Liz and Nick are big hikers, so the entire day had a mountain theme. Each table was named after a Vermont mountain that they’ve hiked together. Next to each mountain sign was a photo of the couple at the summit of that mountain and the date that they hiked it. “Since we have been together for a decade, it wasn’t hard to collect 15 summit photos,” says Liz. We love this how this detail both compliments the ski resort venue and gives guests a glimpse into the couple’s life together!
They also helped Justice of the Peace Greg Trulson write their ceremony because it was very important for the couple to have it be personalized with their love story. He knocked it out of the park and it was such a beautiful ceremony.
Spring Wedding at Sugarbush Resort
Using a ski resort in the “off-season” is a great option for Vermont weddings! The mountain views are a stunning backdrop to an outdoor ceremony! (Also take advantage of the ski lift for a photo opportunity!) Their guests had access to the entire property all weekend and got to enjoy all of the springtime activities at Sugarbush Resort!
