Whimsical and Elegant Summer Wedding at Lake Willoughby

This lakeside summer wedding at Lake Willoughby was right out of a dream! Jess and Jared’s love story began in Vermont over a cup of 802 coffee, and they’ve loved exploring Vermont together ever since. When they across Lake Willoughby together, they immediately fell in love. 

Jess and Jared knew this was the perfect place to invite their family and friends to celebrate their marriage. The summery pastel colors tied everything together and blended perfectly with the lake backdrop. All of the amazing florals were locally sourced by Blossoming Bough Flowers

Quintessential Vermont Summer Wedding

Of all the seasons, summer in the Northeast Kingdom is nothing short of magical. Jess and Jared aimed to curate a wedding weekend full of everything they love about Vermont. The venue and cabins at Willoughby Haven and the Willoughvale Inn brought everyone together in beautiful accommodations for all of their guests.

The weekend offered a delicate balance of whimsical elegance and a summer camp reunion. Jess and Jared made food and entertainment top priorities for their guests complete with kayaks, maple creemees, local beverages, wood-fired fare, campfires, and even a signature wild blueberry basil mocktail.

The welcome bags for their guests included gifts, jam, and maple candies sourced from Willey’s general store in Greensboro.

Breathtaking Lake Views at Lake Willoughby

This couple took advantage of the lake views whenever possible! They chose to do the first look out on the dock and had their ceremony on the beach overlooking the water and the mountains. The portraits on the beach at sunset are some of my favorites!  They hosted the reception under a beautifully decorated tent for dinner and dancing.  Amanda at Pine Events Co. offered invaluable support as the executive designer and planner to make everything perfect for this wedding!

AN CLASSICALLY ELEGANT INTIMATE WEDDING AT THE INN AT WEATHERSFIELD

This lovely wedding is prettier than a picture. Hosted at the Inn at Weathersfield, beautiful details and heartfelt celebration combine for this wow-worthy, intimate wedding. (Which happened to fall on the bride’s parents’ 39th wedding anniversary!) Honestly, we can’t say we’re surprised; the bride, Liz, is the wedding sales manager at Topnotch Resort, so she has an industry insider’s perspective! 

The Benefits of a Microwedding

Liz and Scott had to reschedule their wedding not once, but three times due to the pandemic. They ended up dropping their guest list from 120 people to 25, and although the hassle of rescheduling was exhausting, the end result was amazing. “We never would have been ones to suggest a microwedding, but after it happened, we realized that we got to spend a full weekend with our immediate families and closest friends without distractions,” says Liz. 

Inspired by the Vermont lakes and a breezy vibe, they created a truly magical setting. Classic white and pastel blooms by Blossoming Bough added effortless elegance to the event. Kelsey Regan Photography captured the beauty and love of the day. Check out the full gallery below!

BLACK TIE STOWE WEDDING FILLED WITH HAPPY TEARS

Elegant and joyful – those were the two words that came to mind when I saw Olivia and Jake’s wedding gallery. The UVM sweethearts tied the knot at Topnotch Resort in Stowe with an elegant, black tie, tent wedding this summer. 

The details of their day are gorgeous. From Olivia’s beaded-back wedding dress (with pockets!), to classic black wedding party attire, to the lush florals and exquisite decor throughout the reception tent, their style is so elegant. The couple also wove countless meaningful details into their decor, including their Chuppah, which was built by Olivia’s family from trees from where she grew up!

The couple’s excitement is also palpable. “There were many happy tears!” says photographer Danielle Allendorf. The joy radiating from this couple is what truly stands out in their gallery, and makes it such a fun one to share.
