Vermont Barn Wedding at Lareau Farm Inn

Vermont and barn weddings just seem to make perfect sense. It’s as if they were created just to compliment each other, just like these two lovebirds saying I do below. Their farm fête is packed with personality and pretty, and thanks to Dreamlove Photography you can soak up all the sweetness here.


From Dreamlove PhotographyWhere is the perfect place for two star-crossed mountain bike lovers to tie the knot? At the Lareau Farm Inn of course, in the heart of the Mad River Valley and the epicenter of great mountain biking in Vermont!

These two really spiffed up for their big day, but we managed to get a photo of them on their bicycles so they could remember their other love when they look back at their wedding photos. 

Chelsea and her bridesmaids prepared for the day at the Pitcher Inn, a local spot steeped in vintage ski accessories. These two went for a first look at their rustic red barn wedding venue, the Lareau Farm Inn in Waitsfield, and then said their, I do’s” in a lovely field ceremony beneath a rustic tree branch arbor.

Their ceremony was filled wild wildflower bouquets in studded glass vases, and dinner was served by the fantastic local Flat Bread Pizza, conveniently located right next door to their venue. Guests, who were invited to this celebration by gorgeous letter-pressed invitations, were given local maple syrup as favors, and a bridesmaid of Chelsea’s surprised everyone by scooping up ice cream she had found in town earlier that day!

From the Bride…Pick awesome vendors who you feel comfortable with!  There is so much out there and on the web that it can seem overwhelming when initially looking for people to help support your big day.  Have conversations with a few folks, and see what conversations click. Many people make beautiful wedding things, but only some will be able to match your vision and feel like friends as they do so.  We felt like we could converse and laugh with all of the people who were a part of our wedding during the planning stages, and that sense of relaxation really transferred to the wedding day itself.  Because we picked vendors who were masters of their craft but who also had knowledge of how weddings in general run smoothly, everything turned out perfectly!  My husband, who bore the brunt of my freak outs about wedding details in the few weeks leading up to the wedding, will probably kill me for saying this, but looking at the venue on the day of, I felt like I barely did any of the nitty gritty planning (even though I didn’t have a wedding planner)! That was because our vendors were so awesome!! They just made things happen, and happen beautifully!

Baroque meets Gothic Inspired Wedding Shoot

We’re all about light, blush infused festivities but sometimes moody, dark details are wildly gorgeous. Take a cue from Christina Bernales Photography + Erin Ostreicher Designs who were inspired by gothic and baroque art and how those dark details could be infused into a modern day wedding. With a simple color palette, touches of gold and historic details, this inspiration is all at once elegant and modern but with a gorgeous old world feel

From Christina Bernales PhotographyWe incorporated shed antlers, magnolias and very subtle shades of black, ivory and grey with hints of gold. Our goal was to use texture to add depth and keep our color palette clean and simple. A color palette reminiscent of Gothic or Baroque art. We also incorporated plum into the decor to add a little pop of color to the shoot. We were super excited to collaborate with the amazingly talented Rebecca Schoneveld who was kind enough to lend us a couple of dresses for the shoot from Brooklyn and worked with so many wonderful vendors in Vermont. While we used these historic elements to make the shoot unique, we still tried to maintain a clean, elegant aesthetic.
