From Julia Wade PhotographyI loved this wedding because it was so unique.. It’s not every day you get to photograph a ceremony outside in Vermont in February!! The light was absolutely beautiful and Colleen and Misha did such a beautiful job honoring their history together and their loved ones. They met and fell in love on these beautiful slopes so I truly couldn’t imagine a more perfect place for them to start their marriage together.

From the Bride… I entered into the wedding world with absolutely no knowledge of top designers, trends or what style I wanted – all I was sure of was a classic vision without any overwhelming glitz or embellishments. I tried on several gowns before I knew that I wanted to go with a form fitting and tailored design.

I decided to take a solo trip to Malinda Macari’s store, Your Dream Bridal, without my mom, in favor of a clear head needed to make a decision on my own. Lucky for me, Malinda’s peaceful boutique provided me with the perfect space to find the gown I would later call my own. My first love about the Anne Barge Collette dress was the color. Being a red-head, champagne was a hue I felt complemented me and my vision for the day. I also loved the structure of the dress, it had that “wow effect” I was looking for without being too flashy. The pleats and buttons were a beautiful addition to a simple gown, which I made even more unique by accessorizing with a retro gold veil and a handmade beaded belt. My mom ended up coming back with me once I knew I had found ‘the dress,’ which ended with the emotional reaction I was hoping for and gave me every sense of confidence in my choice.

As for Michael and me. We met online and swiped right.  The old fashioned “Hey, I have a friend I would like to set you up with,” seems to be a thing of the past!

Coincidentally, we only lived one block away from each other in Charlestown, MA. Our relationship went pretty quickly and within nine months, Michael proposed. He was finishing up his MBA and working full time. I planned a weekend getaway in Kennebunkport for his 34th birthday. On our way up we stopped at Nubble Lighthouse in York, ME. He decided to ask me to marry him on his birthday…I was completely shocked! It was such a memorable weekend.

We decided since we were engaged, why wait to get married? We found a venue and set a date within a month and got married three months later! Our wedding date took place on September 11th, 2015. Michael spent much of his life in the Army, fighting for our country in different parts of the world. September 11th has had a lasting impact on all of our lives. Michael and some of his friends in attendance spent multiple years at war as a result of that day. Yet, we chose to marry on this day to also remember it as a day of celebration in the future.

From the Bride… Trevor and I met in New York City six years ago, got engaged in Middlebury, Vermont (where we decided to marry) two years ago and made it official on September 12th of this year.

During a visit to Trevor’s hometown in Vermont – we were making our usual Maple Syrup run to a family friend who owns a gorgeous property and sugarhouse. Knowing my affections for reclaimed wood and rustic details, Trevor’s father asked if there was a possibility of us hosting the wedding there – and when they agreed, we never looked back. This private property & gorgeous barn was a stunning backdrop to my personal style and wedding inspiration. They had never held a wedding on the property, making it all that much more special.

Despite living in major cities for the last 15 years, we both grew up in small rural towns, and appreciate the beauty of the outdoors. I wanted my personal style to shine through the event – I’m not bohemian, and I’m not completely rustic. So we avoided flower crowns, mason jars, and burlap and kept our aesthetic romantic and chic with a vintage feel.

Trevor and I incorporated some special elements into the wedding to really make it “ours.” I surprised Trevor by walking down the aisle to a string quartet playing Pearl Jam’s “Just Breathe”. We only had one reading – it was a letter than Johnny Cash wrote to June Carter on her birthday. Trevor loves Johnny and had once written it to me on my birthday. Both of our paternal grandmothers have passed away, so as a tribute, I wore my grandmothers antique cameo ring down the aisle and had Trevor’s grandmother’s antique blue brooch attached to my bouquet.

We gifted our best men (that’s how we referenced them) the coolest chambray pocket squares from NY to Nashville – a small company I discovered on a business trip to Nash. We gave our best ladies initial necklaces on long gold chains by Brooklyn based jewelry designer, By boe, along with deep berry nail polish (my accent color) from Smith & Cult.

Our biggest challenge was photos. My husband and his groomsmen were almost all hockey players – and played together at Princeton & Taft. We had a lot of very tall guys and a few hockey mustaches to deal with. With a 5’0 bride – the result was a lot of strategic angles from our amazing photographer and a stiff neck.

We also fashion ourselves “foodies,” and used an amazing local farm to table restaurant to cater our wedding. The menu had a French countryside feel, and we served locally sourced items for our cheese & charcuterie table during cocktail hour. We also served local libations from Otter Creek Brewery, Woodchuck Cidery & Drop-inn Brewery.

With a VERY tight budget, this wedding was truly a labor of love. Our friends and family all contributed in ways to make my vision come to life.  I do a lot of antiquing, and particularly collect antique barware, brass pieces and deer antlers. I came up with an idea to use the antique decanters I collect as our table numbers, along with using my brass candlestick holders and vases to create a romantic tablescape. Turns out, the 30 brass candlesticks I own aren’t enough to decorate an entire wedding – so my mother set out to collect over 500 pieces of brass over the last year. Yes, I said 500!!! Her efforts alone helped set the table (pun intended) for the perfect decor. We also used old crates, vintage maps, vintage cake/dessert platters, and old frames borrowed, shipped from our home, or collected by my mom throughout the wedding.

My wedding planner, Wile Events, custom-designed my save-the-date and invitation suite and had them custom printed. My request was a unique envelope liner – and they created a gorgeous guinea feather print that felt special and luxe.

Trevor’s Aunt & Uncle own a nursery and gifted us all of the succulents used throughout the wedding.

Trevor’s mom was a former florist and along with her sister, hand decorated the florals on our Arch. Our wedding planner and friends also took loose flowers to create supplemental arrangements for the tablescapes and décor.

Trevor’s father built us our Wedding Arch.

The best part of the night was when the two of us we were able to step outside of the barn filled with all of our guests – dancing and enjoying themselves and take it all in. We were surrounded by all of the most important people in our life. Bistro lights above us, I have to say it felt pretty magical.
