Any time of year is the perfect time of year for a Vermont wedding in my opinion, but there’s something especially magical about fall weddings and today I’m so happy to share a few beautiful images shot by Garter And Whiskey at Boyden Barn last October.
The bride’s father made the arbor for the ceremony and it was so fun to decorate it! Including when I drove back out to the field to add a dreamcatcher that Lauren’s dad found for the occasion!….it was the perfect finishing touch! (scroll down to see a quick video of the arbor that I shared on Instagram…)
Lauren was the most easy-going, low-key client with very few requests other than a color palette of whites, greens, blue, and burgundy…and when I mentioned a few touches of orange, she happily agreed…then, the rest, she left to me.
I usually like to start a blog post with a shot of the bridal bouquet, but I have to start off with this gorgeous shot of the happy couple….
(Behind the scenes it was a chilly day, but these photos sure do look cozy!)
I really dig the color story here. The pashminas were a last-minute addition and I think they’re the perfect touch. Flowers featured in this wedding include dahlias, scabiosa, roses, hydrangea, amaranthus, agonis, seeded eucalyptus, ruscus and safari sunset.
Fun Fact: Not only was it a pleasure to design for this couple, but as a special surprise treat I got to meet one of my 2019 brides who was attending as a guest! (She’s planning a beautiful August wedding which I am so looking forward to!)

It’s been 7 years since I’ve blogged one of my “Wonderful Wife Tips” because it was about that long ago when I became a mom, so I’ve been more focused on “mom hacks” than “wife tips”!…..but I shared a pic of my crusty bread the other day on Instagram and with a few requests for
There are many hidden gems in Vermont and when it comes to beautiful historic barns, The Barn at Boyden Farm, just up Rte. 15–not too far from my home in Jericho–is not only an authentic Vermont wedding barn, it’s also a working farm and winery. The flowers for this wedding were inspired by a casual, country-inspired feeling
I’ve been designing wedding flowers for over 16 years and while I’ve been fortunate to work on hundreds of weddings and worked with many wonderful couples and their families, I never, ever take for granted the extreme amount of trust clients place in me as a wedding florist.

From June to August in a blink of an eye! That’s what summers as a floral designer feel like sometimes. Now that it’s August, it’s finally time to share this wedding from earlier this summer at The Round Barn! First, the bride’s bouquet! Flowers featured in this bouquet include peonies, roses, freesia, stock, sweet peas,
June is usually when I officially kick off my wedding season in Vermont, but for my first wedding this June I took a little trip across the lake to Whiteface Club in Lake Placid, NY, for a beautiful wedding in a soft, romantic palette of whites, greens, pale pinks, buttery yellows, and a few touches
There’s not much I can say about weddings at The Round Barn that I haven’t said before….it’s one of the best locations for a Vermont wedding. Period. I have this tradition of always photographing my bridal bouquets in the same spot upon my arrival on the wedding day. With snow on the ground for Christine
A big thanks to Amy Bennett for sharing these beautiful photos of Kelsey and Anthony’s destination wedding at The Lang Barn Farm in Essex, VT. The inspiration for this wedding was a natural, romantic vibe with lots of greenery and a palette of whites, pinks and touches of lilac. A fresh table runner on the
Each year Pantone selects a “color of the year” and in truth, I don’t find that it often has much of an impact on the floral choices I see in Vermont weddings, however, Pantone’s color of the year for 2018 is “Ultra Violet”, which I must say does not come as a surprise to me!
I learned about floral couture when I attended my first Chapel Designer Workshop where Francoise Weeks was teaching. She was so patient and strategic about her work. It was truly inspiring. A few years ago when I decided to make a concerted effort to “perfect” my corsage and boutonniere work, I drew upon what I
