Working with these two beautiful families on this particular wedding was the best! It's weddings like this that remind me how lucky I am to be a wedding planner here in Vermont. This video will give you a little glimpse into the heart of the wedding of Laurel and Alexander.
Our weekend started off and ended at the Woodstock Inn and Resort where the families hosted a welcome party and a brunch but in between those events was the wedding day. Laurel and Alexander were married at her parents home in Barnard, Vermont. The weather was perfect; we had blue skies and warm temps during the day, with no chance of rain. That evening the temperature dropped into the 40's which is highly unusual for summertime in Vermont but we were prepared with heaters to keep the tent toasty. Laurel and Zandy's day was spent with family and friends who came in from all over the world to celebrate them. The guests started the day with drinks on the back lawn listening to music from our string quartet. The ceremony followed with some of the most heartfelt words I have ever heard by the Honorable Judge Rigsby. You could literally feel the love during the ceremony. After enjoying cocktails and hor d'oeuvres the guests were escorted down past the pond to the tented reception where the band was in full swing. Dinner soon followed with sweet toasts made to the couple and then it was back onto the dance floor for the night. The band kept everyone on the dance floor for hours. There were so many sweet personal touches at this wedding from the beautiful robes, lavender toss post ceremony, signature drinks, specialty appetizers, sweet signs designed by the brides mother, that huge lobster, the sweet candy bar and R2D2 cake that surprised our groom, to him surprising her right back by getting up on the stage and playing with the band. Laurel and Zandy ran through a sea of sparklers at the end of the reception to their golf cart that whisked them away into the night... or back up to the main house for an after party where they enjoyed drinks, grilled cheese and cigars. It truly was one of those days that will stay with you for a life time.
I loved being their planner and working along side this team of amazing vendors:
