We’re Calling This the Best Christmas Present EVER

The best Christmas present ever? Meeting your soulmate. That’s what happened to Rachel and Jonathan, a seriously sweet duo that happened to meet at a Christmas dinner hosted by friends and spent the remainder of their winter heading to Vermont to cross country ski together. If it sounds like a romantic movie, you are correct… and just wait until you lay your eyes on their stunning West Mountain Inn wedding, all captured perfectly by Nicole Baas Photography. Head to THE VAULT to soak it all in.

From Nicole Baas Photography… I wanted to share this beautiful Vermont wedding filled with soft color, beautiful design, real emotion and a lot of fun.

Rachel and Jonathan make their home in Brooklyn but head to Vermont any chance that they get. Having their wedding in Vermont was a way to share their special place with their friends and family. Everything was beautifully simple and elevated in the most well-designed and thoughtful way. You could tell from the ceremony that Rachel and Jonathan really felt the importance of their wedding day as Jonathan cried watching Rachel walk down the aisle and she burst into tears mid-walk with her father when she saw Jonathan for the first time that day.

From the Bride… Jonathan and I met over a Christmas dinner with friends. We quickly bonded over our love of the outdoors and spent the rest of that winter cross country skiing in southern Vermont every weekend we could manage.

Since that’s where we fell in love, Vermont was the obvious choice for our wedding. The summer months always promise beautiful weather and the mountains are so green and lush. I really had my heart set on doing everything outdoors. The West Mountain Inn was perfect — the property is so beautiful and they have amazing views of the Green Mountains. We held the ceremony in their labyrinth garden with beautiful rolling pastures and mountains as our backdrop. The reception took place on the sprawling lawn next to the barns where we had ample space for a large white tent and plenty of open grass for guests to spread out and enjoy the sunset over the mountains.

I wanted to keep everything for the wedding very simple and romantic. Our flowers were all white and blush but mostly I wanted everything covered in lush greenery to match the scenery. The stand outs were the beautiful garlands our florist put together for the tables and the hanging greenery over the dance floor complete with ivory ribbons and hanging votives. My bridesmaids and I carried beautifully undone bouquets of roses and each girl wore a long blush dress of her own choosing. The guys wore navy blue suits with pink Liberty of London print ties to match the ladies. My dress had a simple silhouette to match the theme but was done in the most beautiful beaded fabric. We were married under an arbor draped with greenery, white hydrangeas, and blush roses in one of the most simple, heartfelt ceremonies I could’ve imagined– we both cried most of the way through it!

Each of our 94 guests were given a small bottle of local maple syrup, tied to which were their escort cards done in beautiful navy blue calligraphy. They traveled from all over the country and we were so grateful to have everyone we love in one place. We had an amazing 8-piece band that was absolutely phenomenal — the dance floor was packed all night and there were audible groans from the crowd when they announced the party was over.

This is How a Chic City Couple Gets Married in Rustic Vermont

I’m a little biased, but when I hear the Bride discovered her wedding vision after perusing SMP, I know her big day will be beautiful. And this rustic Vermont day does not disappoint. With a gorgeous couple, scenic inn setting and surprise vintage 1960’s Volkswagen Bus photo booth from Photobooth Planet, this day is every kind of charming. See it all thanks to Emily Delamater in The Vault!

From The Bride…I can’t say that I had a true vision for our wedding from the beginning. Deciding on one theme or choosing ‘our colors’ seemed so daunting but I knew it was a path that we’d have to cross eventually. My fiancé, Dan, and I did know that we wanted to get married in Vermont, a place we had shared many great memories together. We also knew that we wanted a summer wedding, either in late June or early July. Vermont’s lush green landscape seemed like the perfect backdrop for our summer wedding, connecting our love for nature with that small town charm that New England is known for.

Getting married in Vermont meant that we’d have a semi-destinational wedding (as most of our family lives in New York) and we loved that idea, however we knew we would need to find a venue to accommodate our families and friends comfortably. Dan and I started our journey searching for the perfect venue which was exhausting and also a huge reality check- wedding’s are expensive! We visited about 6 different venues within a three weeks and it wasn’t until a trip to Woodstock, VT that we stumbled upon The Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm. We drove by this beautifully nestled Inn boasting a big red barn and a large open field and immediately felt drawn to it. Ten minutes later we were walking the grounds with the Inn Keeper and 20 minutes later were putting a soft hold on a date of July 18th, 2015!

My vision started to become more clear when I discovered images of a summer wedding at the Quechee Inn featured on Style Me Pretty! These beautiful images painted a picture for me in my head and it quickly became clear that this is where Dan and I would say “I do”. I immediately reached out to the florist and the photographer credited for these images and to my amazement both were available for our date! As soon as I met Michelle Boleski from Petals Vermont I knew my vision was in good hands. She was able to sift through all my ideas and create a cohesive theme that would carefully blend rustic Vermont with city chic and a touch of vintage. I chose a color scheme consisting of soft pink, gold, and champagne and a theme of gold arrows, since our first date was on Valentine’s Day. We ordered wedding invitations with gold foil arrows and designed a cake adorned with gold arrows and fresh flowers. Our guest book was an oversized image of our thumb prints overlapping to create a heart which we also put an arrow through. When the day finally arrived and I saw how Michelle had transformed our tent I was in awe, the outcome was elegant, romantic, and thoughtful and my vision had come to life!

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. The ceremony was outside between two beautiful old maple trees that created a natural canopy casting shade over our guests. I walked down the isle to a non lyrical version of “A Thousand Years” by The Piano Guys and we walked back up the isle as husband and wife to “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” by Stevie Wonder. For cocktail hour our guests walked up to a beautiful courtyard where they were greeted with his and hers signature drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Just before our reception began our wonderful coordinator gathered our guests to the front lawn for a group shot, that serves as a perfect memory token! To help guests find their seats we had a large vintage mirror propped on an easel that my mother hand wrote every guests name and their assigned table number. Our parties were introduced and Dan and I danced our first dance to “Someone Like You” by Van Morrison. As a surprise for our guests Dan and I arranged for a Vintage 1960’s Volkswagen Bus for our photo booth. This was a huge hit and added such a fun element to our tent and theme. Shortly after dinner our band, Cover Story, started taking requests and really got the party going and for the remaining hours of the night the dance floor was filled, just as we had hoped for!

With an incredible team of vendors and our wonderful coordinator, we were able to relax and enjoy every moment. A special thanks to our photographers, Emily and Matt Delamater, who captured those moments so perfectly too!
