If you’ve ever had the chance to take the drive up to Woodstock, Vermont, you know it’s just about one of the cutest places you ever did see. So when weddings from that quaint little place land in my lap, I take note. And when that wedding is from Kate Dawson of Storied Events? I stop everything I am doing to see what piece of perfection she whipped together for me to drool over today. And she definitely did not disappoint with this beauty, where every nook and cranny is filled to the brim with details, but most importantly, love. Lauren Methia Photography captured every moment so we don’t have to miss a single sweet touch, and you can see it all here.
From the Bride… I am orginally from Chicago and my husband is from New York. We met in a bar in New York City on Halloween four years ago and have been together ever since. On our first weekends away together, he took me to his most favorite place, Vermont. During our stay, we visited Woodstock and had such a great time walking through the beautiful, quaint town, and enjoying the gorgeous landscape. We loved it so much that we returned each year for our anniversary on Halloween.
After we got engaged, there was some back and forth about where to get married with his family in New York and mine in Chicago but it didn’t take long for us to choose Woodstock, Vermont because that was “our” place. Since Woodstock is so small, it was the perfect location to be able to spend time with everyone as all of the weekend festivities were within steps of each other.
Our vision for the weekend was to make it fun! We created a madlib for our invitation response card, we brought lawn games for the cocktail hour, we served mac and cheese with dinner, we booked a fun band to pack the dancefloor, and we didn’t take anything too seriously. That’s why when the power went out two hours before the ceremony until the priest pronounced us husband and wife, we didn’t worry. It was the greatest day to be surrounded by everyone we loved and marrying our best friend! Not to mention, the candlelight ceremony was really romantic.
I spent a lot of time on SMP while engaged looking for wedding inspiration and I was very happy with how all of our little details turned out. I couldn’t have done it without the BEST wedding coordinator in the world, Kate Dawson, and I can’t say enough about our photographer, Lauren Methia, she captured the most incredible photos!
