Vermont Wedding at Hildene

Even though I’m from NJ I grew up skiing in the Manchester, VT area so it’s always fun when weddings bring us down that way.  Bethany and Danny chose the historic Lincoln family home, Hildene, to host their destination Vermont wedding.  Beth described a “luxe garden party” as the theme for this colorful summer wedding and with the vibrant purples, pinks, yellows, greens and orange tones of the flowers along with the gorgeous setting this wedding was clearly garden inspired.

The bride carried a bouquet of pink ‘Tiega’ roses, deep pink peonies, two shades of purple dahlias, sweet peas, lisianthus, yellow freesia and bupleurum.

 The groom wore a boutonniere of green kermit palms and a lisianthus bud.  Green mums were one of the bride’s favorite flowers.

A birch chuppah in the garden complemented the natural setting.

Another wife-husband team, Daria and Andy Bishop, were on the scene to capture the couple getting their “first look” at one another.

 It really is a beautiful setting…even on a cloudy day!

Deep purple linens added the perfect pop to the tent at Hildene.  Centerpieces of dahlias, gerberas, roses, sweet William, sweet peas, Kermit poms, bupleurum and royal purple stock brought a burst of color to the tabletops.

The tables were named with different flowers including orchid, peony, daisy, iris & poppy.  We placed flowers at each setting…a special touch to greet guests!

 Here’s another look at the summery centerpieces.

I’m a sucker for cute signs on the backs of the bride and groom’s chairs so I grabbed this final shot before heading home.

Congratulations to Beth and Danny!  We first started planning your wedding details last June and it’s hard to believe your big day has come and gone already!  When we caught the tail end of the cocktail hour it seemed like guests were enjoying quite a party and all of your thoughtful details (including the beautiful silk fabric you chose for your chuppah!) came together in a fabulous way.  A beautiful setting and a beautiful couple…what more do you need?!
