We’ve had a rainy start to the spring here in Vermont which has resulted in a lot of soggy weddings across the state. Luckily mother nature decided to shine down on Saturday for Jess & John’s wedding at The Ponds at Bolton Valley. It was a perfectly beautiful day and their multi-colored designs fit the scene.
Flowers included a colorful array of blooms with a summery, seasonal feeling for a rustic vibe that is uniquely Vermont.
The bride carried a bouquet of dark pink peonies, purple clematis, white roses, freesia and lavender and dark purple sweet peas for a palette that is both bridal, yet bold!
Here is another view of the bride’s bouquet. I’m crazy for the clematis and I cut these peonies from my garden.
The scene was absolutely beautiful for their outdoor ceremony!
The natural wood arbor comes to life with bright blooms to frame the couple as they exchange vows. Wooden sap buckets also added an authentic Vermont detail.
Small floral details on the chairs bring color down the aisle.
The centerpieces were arranged in wooden boxes to accentuate the rustic feeling including snapdragons, delphinium, sweet peas, stock, yellow roses, orange ranunculus, bupleurum and sweet William.
I snapped a shot of the centerpieces with my phone before boxing them up for delivery. All these colors just make me happy.
The Ponds has a huge mantelpiece as a focal point so we added lanterns and flowers to complete the room.
Congratulations to Jess and John! It sounds like you had a perfect day! As a native Vermonter returning home for a “destination wedding” all the details came together so nicely. I’m so glad we had the chance to work together.
