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.

The idea of getting married — that special day and all the associated trappings — never took up space in my head other than, as a man, this is what would happen some — one — day.

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.
