Lauren and Dusty are native Vermonters who have been together for 10 years. The timeless, historical, and elegant Hildene was the perfect backdrop for their summer wedding. Lauren and Dusty actually attended a prom at Hildene (as friends) when they were still in high school so they knew it was a perfect place to tie the knot. 

Gorgeous Vermont Mountain Views at Hildene Wedding

Nestled between the Taconic and Green Mountains in Vermont is the glorious Hildene Estate. Hildene was the summer home of Abraham Lincoln's son Robert Todd Lincoln, and it is where Lauren and Dusty chose to begin their marriage with breathtaking mountain views and sweeping valleys below. 

Hildene is located right at the center of historic Manchester Village and encompasses everything charming and classic New England. It is full of interesting shops, excellent restaurants, and beautiful churches. So, even native Vermonters, like Lauren and Dusty, gravitate to it for celebrations.  

The Ideal Tented Wedding Venue

Lauren and Dusty had the perfect summer day for an outdoor tented wedding. They chose a beautiful pastel pink color that was used throughout all of the details, including the flowers and bridesmaid dresses. The sail cloth tent for the reception looked so gorgeous and romantic for all of their guests to enjoy dinner and dancing to celebrate this wonderful couple!
