Winter Wedding at the Equinox Resort from A Brit and a Blonde

Yes. This winter wedding near the ski lifts of Vermont wins. At least in my heart. Winter weddings are the absolute best. All that beautiful white snow, and the gray, cold skies make for perfectly rosy cheeks and bright eyes. And this one. Oy, this one is fabulous. A Brit and a Blonde outdid themselves with the beautiful images from the gorgeous winter day.

From Jason & JessicaKarima & Mike are big skiers. They both grew up heading to ski hills with their families. So they knew for their big day – it needed to be a winter wedding near a ski hill. They fell in love with the Equinox hotel in Manchester, Vermont which is nestled right in the mountains and really close to Stratton where Karima went on many ski trips with her family as a child. It was perfect. Right across the street was the 1811 House – where some of their guests stayed and made for some great photos too.

Mike designed a really cute Save the Date which was a lift ticket that they sent to guests. And he also created the vintage ski table numbers for each table and the vintage ski signage. The couple also found old vintage skis which they used instead of having guests sign a book. Such a cool idea and they have them up in their house now as a sweet memory of the day. The flowers were so beautiful and had a wintery feel to them.

We adore Karima’s gorgeous Vera Wang wedding dress. She looked stunning and that black sash really completed the look. Since it was winter, and the couple really wanted some images taken outside – Karima opted for a really gorgeous fur shrug that she bought at a vintage store which kept her nice and warm. Her Kate Spade shoes were picture perfect too.

Manchester, Vermont Wedding from Paper Antler

Since moving to New England, my hubster and I have made it a point to try and travel here, there and everywhere on the weekends. And from Mass. to Maine, Rhode Island to New Hampshire — we’ve seen a lot. But Vermont is that one state we’ve left undiscovered. And you know what? This stunning affair from Paper Antler is JUST the kick in the toosh I need to set our Vermont trip into motion. But until the weekend rolls around, I know exactly where I’ll be spending my time — right here in full gallery of mountainside scenery.


From Paper AntlerMeg and Wade celebrated their wedding day at the base of the Vermont Taconic Mountains in the pond pavilion of the Equinox Resort. Their colors of bright verdant green and soft pink highlighted the surrounding nature. Meg wore her grandmother’s fur stole to keep warm from the Vermont spring breeze. There were so many fun personal details from the “love vermont” gift bags, to the giant “M” for Machon shaped seating guide nailed to an old door.

Montpellier, South France Wedding from Shoot In Love

Oh France. You just know how to wrap me around me your pretty little finger, don’t you? And after seeing Montpellier through the talented lens of Shoot In Love via this completely perfect wedding, I do believe I’m wrapped that much tighter. Because this is the dreamiest of destination weddings complete with a guest list so awesome they all dressed in retro fo the ceremony. It doesn’t get much more fabulous than that, and you can see precisely what I am talking about right here.

Al Fresco

From Shoot In LoveMarie and Armand married in Montpellier in South France. They put a lot of care in details, old bike, old french car, candles, a lot of flowers. The wedding took place in two parts. First the civil ceremony, all the guests wore retro costumes. To go to the town hall, the couple had organized a cortege of bike.  After the first ceremony, they organized a beautiful “cérémonie laïque” outside. Laugh, tears, songs, braces it was a very emotional ceremony. The cocktail was a celebration of friendship and family, rhythm by old songs played on the accordion. 

From the Bride… The magical site, surrounded by old stone, our guest’s retro costumes, who all played the game, the whole procession accompanying us bike to City Hall…the sun, the excitement, surprises, smiles, love everywhere we look, made this day a wonderful memory…UNFORGETTABLE!
