Glam Mountain Wedding With Fun Pops of Red

Mountain brides, be prepared to take cues from Melissa and Morgan’s rustic-glam day. Designed with vibrant pops of red, burgundy and accented with gold, it’s a wedding design done right and you can see it all here captured by Ruth Eileen.


Al Fresco

From Jenna Piper Emrich at Topnotch ResortMelissa and Morgan’s wedding style has been described by their Wedding Planner, Jaclyn Watson, as an “elegant epic party”…and that it was! Melissa and Morgan were dreaming of that perfect mix of a personal and timeless wedding that also turned into a throw-down party with everyone on the dance floor.

With luscious, vibrant hues of red and burgundy and gold accents carefully placed within natural, neutral grey and taupe tones, Melissa and Morgan’s wedding style was classic and fit so well nestled into the Modern-Vermont styled spaces at Topnotch Resort.

Their ceremony, at the Meadowlark Pavilion, just outside the Resort was deeply personal, very unique in tradition (as described below by Melissa and Morgan) and just gorgeous under the natural wood pergola that framed them.

Guests enjoyed fun, small bites like New Zealand Lamb Chops with Mustard-Herb Crust, Spicy Tuna Poke with Avocado on Won ton Crisps, Fried Vegetable Spring Rolls with Spicy Chili Sauce and Mini Lobster BLTs as they mingled on the Mansfield Overlook Lawn amongst the mountain backdrop and modern architecture of Topnotch Resort.

The reception, held in the Mansfield Pavilion Tent, was warm and vibrant with candlelight, lush centerpieces accented by vintage gold vases and modern gold table numbers and a romantic, gauzy fabric draped ceiling. Surrounded by gardens and views of Mount Mansfield, guests enjoyed a three-course meal focused on Vermont flavors of the season including heirloom tomatoes, local cheese, fresh garden vegetables and local beef. Milo Z, the band, really did bring on the party as guests danced well into the evening while enjoying local craft brews and a cigar bar.

From the happy couple, Melissa and Morgan…Our favorite part was the ceremony. We made it deeply personal by writing our own vows and having Morgan’s brother officiate. It was a non denominational ceremony but we wanted to infuse both our Jewish and Armenian cultures so we took the blessing of the common cup tradition that is practiced in Armenian weddings, known as the Kiddish Cup in Judaism, and made it our own by each pouring some of our favorite Vermont beer into a shared cup. Our beloved dog, Jezzie, was also part of the ceremony (roaming around) and she was the inspiration for one of our readings, “How Falling in Love is like Owning a Dog” by Taylor Mali. We were told by countless people that our ceremony was very “us” which we loved.”
