Happy new year! Though fall seems like a distant memory amidst the ice and snow, it was just a few months ago that we had the honor of planning and designing a beautiful country wedding for Ali and Gene in Southern Vermont. They wanted to maintain an atmosphere that was true to the rustic landscape of the Inn at Weathersfield, but elevate the ambiance to add a refinement that was a reflection of their cosmopolitan tastes. After months of working long distance (bride and groom in Boston and me in NYC), I think we achieved a perfect balance that made for an outstanding wedding weekend. Thank you to Elizabeth Antunes for all of the photographs below.
The quaint Inn at Weathersfield
Guest found their table assignments on chalkboard markers arranged in moss
2009 was the year of the rain... but the couple was undeterred!
The Inn at Weathersfield has one of the most well recognized chefs in New England, so the family-style menu was a highlight of the event.
Before the sun set and the candles were lit...
The table landscape was comprised of birch wrapped pillar candles and vases with a mix of white, green and eggplant purple blooms.
Zinc tags sprayed with chalkboard paint and handwritten with chalk pens directed guests to their seats.
