From Jaclyn Watson Events:  In the midst of winter in Vermont, and with Kirsty Mitchell’s Daughter of Narnia in mind, a storybook design came together. The White Queen bride amongst the snowy birch in her stunning caped Alexandra Grecco gown. The grandiose feasts featured in A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin created this image of an over-the-top feast for a Queen and her King. The warmer temperatures allowed for glimpses of the soft browns and muted golds hiding beneath the white blanket of snow. The unexpected colors played off the tones hidden in our centerpieces, beautifully created by Apotheca Flowers, and the pops of color from the extravagant feast laid out by Let’s Pretend Catering. Our clean and crisp, woodsy cake was a perfect touch to this come to life adventure. Be Our Guest included unique china pieces that embodied the story  while Ferro Jewelers included beautiful vintage estate pieces that matched the era.

Katie & Robert and Bethany & Jameson | December 10th | Stowe, Vermont

We’ve featured a few double weddings in the past, but never one with identical twin sisters!  Katie & Robert and Bethany & Jameson shared a wonderful winter wedding day at Stowe Mountain Lodge. The twin sisters spent time helping each other plan their big days after their individual engagements. While in this process, they decided to share the day together.  A total of 12 bridesmaids and 11 groomsmen accompanied the couples. The gentlemen got ready at the Lodge while the ladies got ready in the HGTV Dream Home overlooking Mount Mansfield. The twins stood as maid of honor for each other, sharing a bridesmaid gown and changing between ceremonies. With different ceremonies and cocktail hours, each couple was able to add their own personal details ending this special day with a combined reception. Truly a wonderfully unique wedding day with two fantastic couples.

Karen & Mike | February 14th | Stowe, VT

From the bride:
Our day was magical! We got married on Valentine’s Day, and everything was very romantic. Valentine’s Day has always been very special to us – it was the day that we began dating in high school, it was the day we got engaged, and it is our favorite holiday each year to spend time with each other and take an exciting weekend trip to celebrate.

Many of our guests came up to Stowe several days before our wedding to relax and enjoy the many winter activities available there, such as horse drawn carriages, skiing, and shopping.  We planned events in the morning and in the evening (like a Welcome Breakfast and Game Night).  It was nice because our friends and family got to meet and create memories before the wedding.  Many of our guests told us that this was “the best vacation” they have ever had.The ceremony took place in a cozy log cabin that is a restaurant in the warm months, right in front of a beautiful fireplace.  It was beautifully decorated with a long, bright red aisle that had scattered white rose petals.  It provided a grand and dramatic entrance and there were beautiful views of the mountains, too.

 We sat a small sweetheart table in the middle of the room with dramatic red and white drapery framing the table.  Candles were everywhere, which provided a very romantic and intimate ambience. We named each table a city or state that we love, like “Paris” or “Bar Harbor, Maine”.On each guest table we placed photos of us in our favorite places and a small description of why we love it.We served apple cider and apple cider donuts from our favorite local place (which our guests loved).  We also had s’mores and hot chocolate after dinner.
