Inspiration Board: The Ceremony

Having a wedding ceremony in a church can be gorgeous. My fiance and I are choosing to have our ceremony outdoors and recently discussed having a romantic and ethereal ceremony in the middle of the forest…yes, I know, it sounds totally crazy but it can and will be done!

Logistically, this could be a tricky feat. I have yet to find the perfect spot, and I’m a bit worried about making an ample pathway for guests to walk through. With all logistics aside (for now!) WT&E has everything we need to make the ceremony special. Their birch archway or handcrafted huppa, wooden benches or even the rich, mahogany chivari chairs would be lovely.

What is the most bizarre place that you have witnessed a wedding ceremony?

Featured Wedding: Bethany & Jon

Bethany was the perfect example of our favorite brides…she was so involved with the planning of her wedding and design and truly excited about it every step of the way. With guidance from Jenna at Piper Designs (also event coordinator here at WT&E) Bethany chose luxurious fabrics and colors inspired by Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’ and peppered the event with floral designs from Silver Toad. Susanna’s Catering provided a delicious spread for dinner.

Newly Engaged? Begin with us!

I am happy to hear about so many new engagements that happened during the Holidays or New Years Eve…I like to think that this may be the year of love!

For those of you who will choose an indoor venue for your reception such as a barn or inn , be sure to find out what they do not provide and then give us a call so that we can supply the rest.


If you choose the wonderful Vermont landscape as your venue (or a tent, rather) than you should begin your planning with us.

We can begin my making an appointment to visit in our new, Waterbury showroom where we can discuss all of the details and even refer you to other vendors such as caterers, floral designers and photographers. We offer complimentary site visits to determine the location of the tent on the chosen property. Next, we will put together a rental quote and tent layout.

We can provide the tent and everything you need inside! From lounge furniture to dance floors, linen and all that is in between, we literally offer it all. We can also offer custom furniture and pieces upon request, so don’t be afraid to let your imagination run wild.

I look forward to hearing from you…

Spotlight: Vermont Wedding Style

Vermont has an abundance of fabulous wedding vendors and one great way to locate them is through Vermont Wedding Style’s website.  It is such a great resource to not only find the right floral designer, caterer and photographer, but they also offer great tips for wedding planning including their ‘Wedding Tool Kit’. I checked it out this week and found it so helpful…just print it out and use it as part of your wedding binder!

Afterthought: After-party Dresses

Although this may be an afterthought for some, one of my first searches for wedding day clothing and accessories was my after-party dress. I want something modern, chic and non-typical…here are a few of my faves right now.
