This Vermont wedding by Dreamlove Wedding Photography is bursting with personality. I love when a couple takes a wedding trend and totally infuses their own individuality and style into it. The wild, overgrown and bushy initials against rustic doors are an awesome take on the traditional moss letters. And I love that the entire venue is covered in the paper cranes handmade by the groom’s brother even the wrought-iron chandeliers. There are even more funky finds in the full gallery so make sure you head on over there!
From Dreamlove Wedding Photography… Emelia and Tony had a gorgeous wedding in Burlington, Vermont. Their ceremony and reception had tones of urban hip, blended with country vintage charm that seemed to fit both the bride and groom’s personalities perfectly.
So many friends and family played a role in this wedding, it was touching to see a community come together to create an amazing wedding day! Paul, the groom’s brother, and an artist based in Barcelona, folded one thousand paper cranes to hang in the entry way to their reception, and to decorate the tables with. In Japan, a thousand paper cranes are given as a gift, by someone who wishes a thousand years of happiness and prosperity upon the couple. A family friend of the bride designed and built their ceremony arch, which was made from bent branches and decorated with hydrangeas, the flower of choice for the reception. A close friend of Emelia’s, Casey Reynolds, and Emelia’s mother, Kendree Parker, designed and decorated the reception with flowers that poured from antique ball jars and vases.
Emelia surprised Tony by wearing a pair of adorable red flats, a gift from Tony early in their relationship. Tony was overjoyed when he saw her in them! The couple also designed their own cookbooks as wedding favors to guests, and brought out chalkboards at the reception for guests to write messages on!
Emelia and Tony had their wedding at a country club, but this hardly felt like a country club wedding. It just goes to show, that with a unique vision and friends and family to lend their creative skill, weddings can have all of the charm of a vintage country setting, no matter where they are!
