Getting Married in Vermont

Plan a magical wedding day in Vermont amid the wondrous Green Mountains, whether ablaze with fall color, capped with snow, or lush with the green of summer. Golden sunsets. White Camelot tents. Antique barns. Vermont’s allure as a wedding destination is matched only by the caliber of topnotch professionals ready to help plan your most special day.

The music at your wedding will be with you for a long, long time. Make sure it’s something you will be happy to have echoing on a perpetual replay as reminiscences sneak up on you for years and years to come.

So when the big day comes, whether you want to highlight family heritage or a missing loved one, or you’re looking for ways to celebrate the blending of cultures, how do you weave it all into your wedding?

Makeup, hair, nails — these services have become standard for most wedding parties. But what about options to enhance your appearance on your wedding day, and beyond? Confidence boosters that aren’t whisked away with the swipe of a washcloth at midnight?

Jeff proposed to Jennifer on top of snowy Stratton Mountain, later marrying at Spruce Peak at Stowe in the fall of 2020, in an intimate ceremony surrounded by the reds, oranges and yellows of fall.

Hannah and Ross married in an intimate ceremony at Starry Night Café in North Ferrisburgh last fall, officiated by close friend, Brian McVey, and surrounded by a small gathering of friends and family members.

Does love at first sight sound too cliché? Very well. Julie and Mike’s story — how they both fell in love on their first date, how they drove home that night in a blizzard as chunky snowflakes floated past, how they braved the pangs of a long-distance relationship — is a cliché. A sweet one, all the same.

"For years my wedding ring has done its job. It has led me not into temptation. It has reminded my husband numerous times at parties that it’s time to go home. It has been a source of relief to a dinner companion. It has been a status symbol in the maternity ward."

"Love is the answer, and you know that for sure; Love is a flower, you’ve got to let it grow."

It’s a rare sense of place that makes a Vermont wedding stand out, from the food that’s grown on the farm just down the road to the verdant rolling hills and sparkling silver waters that twist and turn through the countryside. And then there are the people who become as much a part of your wedding experience as the scenery itself. Vermont’s small business owners take pride in helping you select the perfect dress, an eye-catching bouquet, and the most scrumptious dessert — all of the details that make your wedding your very own.
