Alyson and Don’s wedding at The Inn at the Round Barn took place on the most perfect September day in Vermont. The style for their wedding was a local vibe with rustic, gardeny elements and handmade details. The palette was bright and colorful for a fun, seasonal feeling.
The bride wanted a wildflower feeling for her bouquet which included hydrangea, magenta stock, dahlias, delphinium, purple lisianthus, orange ranunculus, rudbekia (aka black-eyed-susans), freesia and fresh mint.
Her 9 attendants wore Spiced Wine dresses from J. Crew and carried slightly smaller bouquets of stock, delphinium, hydrangea, spray roses, lisianthus and orange dahlias.
The flower girl carried a small birch basket to match the girls.
Their ceremony took place by the pond with sap buckets on each side of the “altar” filled with purple gladiolus, blue delphinium, orange snapdragons, green hydrangea, magenta stock, yellow Asiatic lilies and sunflowers .
Centerpieces designed in mini-sap buckets were filled with fresh mint, snapdragons, delphinium, stock, ranunculus, dahlias, tulips, lilies and hydrangea for an eclectic, end-of-summer feeling.
The couple lived in Spain for a while and are wine lovers so table numbers sewn onto wine bottles wrapped in burlap sacks pointed guests in the right direction. Small mason jars with votive candles completed the tablescape.
Their DIY placecard display had a rustic, homemade style.
A few floral accents finished the display.
Here’s one more look at the colorful bride’s bouquet.
