We've said it before, and we'll say it again – we adore when the Bridesmaids are dressed in all white! This Bride dressed her beautiful 'maids in an array of dreamy, white gowns from Joanna August and Show Me Your Mumu, which popped against the breathtaking grounds of the 1824 House. Michelle Elaine Weddings planned this gorgeous event captured by Dreamlove Wedding Photography, and we have it all for you right here.

From Michelle Elaine Weddings... I have been blessed to be introduced to this beautiful, fun loving, and amazing family. Kelley is the second of four sisters to be married last year. She was a very calm and easy bride to work with, but she also knew exactly what she wanted and how she envisioned the execution on the wedding day to be, which I absolutely loved!

The natural backdrop at the 1824 House is just so stunning that you don't need to go overboard with any decor or detail. Jayson Munn designed everything perfectly. Kelley had wanted the design to flow in a way that it felt as if the tables and tent were a part of the property, keeping the design very green, open, and airy.

The ceremony was absolutely breathtaking, atop the hill at 1824 House, providing guests with the most gorgeous views for miles. Kelley's decision to have her girls dressed in all white was just the right touch – it kept the look simple, clean, and still very pretty while not taking away from the natural beauty of this outdoor space.

From the folk band, to the rustic decor, twinkling lights, homemade pies, and s'mores as the sun went down, this wedding was like a magical wonderland in Vermont!

From Dreamlove Wedding Photography... This summer wedding had us absolutely swooning. Hints of earthy, romantic details were around every corner. Kelley wore flowers in her hair and a dress that had pockets! The pockets came in handy, as she could keep her sunglasses tucked away for those brighter moments during the outdoor ceremony.

The florist created a set of stunning rustic wedding bouquets made of thistles, sea foam poppy pods, succulents, and white peonies. Following the hilltop ceremony, guests were invited into the sailcloth tents for a rustic and cozy reception. Raw linen table runners with garlands of eucalyptus adorned the long dinner tables. Jars of honey personalized with the bride and groom’s pictures served as unique guest favors for everyone!

There were several heartfelt speeches during the evening. Kelley’s sisters followed up the toasts with an amazing rendition of songs. They, along with many of their extended family, welcomed Stephen into the family by singing “We Are Family”! As the sun went down, the dance floor picked up with the twinkling cafe lights. A campfire outside set the scene for a delicious s'more-making party – the perfect ending to such a lovely wedding day.

From the Bride... Stephen and I met roughly nine and a half years ago. It was sophomore year at Middlebury College, and we were at some party. This long-haired hippie wearing a ripped flannel approached me. He reminded me of Mimisiku from "Jungle 2 Jungle," aka my ultimate teenage crush. We exchanged numbers and soon after, he took me on a snowboarding date. I've never looked back.

Steve proposed to me in December of 2014. We went on a getaway weekend up to Bristol, Vermont and stayed at one of our favorite little B&Bs – nothing unusual. We snowshoed up Camel's Hump and there, at the top, amidst a snowy winter wonderland, Stephen proposed. We snowboarded back down to the car, turned off our cell phones, and celebrated with some delicious Vermont brews!

To other brides, my advice is to plan early and and be prepared to finish everything the week before the wedding so you can sit back and simply enjoy. Try to slow down time on the wedding day, take in as much as you can, smile, and EAT!

My favorite thing about my wedding day, well, obviously Steve was (and continues to be) my favorite thing! But despite the obvious, our family and friends were the best part of our wedding day! We were surrounded by our favorite people in the entire world. And it is the people that make the wedding – the speeches, the dancing, the laughs, the love!
