Rustic Meets Glamour in a Winter Wonderland: Erin + Chase

Erin & Chase drew inspiration for their wedding from their life on their dairy farm in Salisbury, Vermont. Erin explains, My inspiration came from Chase and my lifestyle. We own a large dairy farm and I wanted to incorporate the country and rustic feel to the wedding. We knew we wanted a winter wedding due to it being a slow time for work for Chase. We played off of the winter theme as well, with lots of cozy ideas to warm up the space.

Carr's Florist captured the perfect balance of winter whites mixed with beautiful pops of blues and purple.  

A perfect match! Solos Salon created elegant mix of curls and braids and Paige Carrara of Mountain Top Spa gave the bridal party rose kissed cheeks, fresh dewy skin with a little pop of color on the lips. 

Elysa of Ever After Photography beautifully captures this touching moment.

What a location! This winter wonderland is breathtaking. Erin talked to us about budget, The bulk of the budget went to the venue itself. We loved the Mountain Top Inn because it's so beautiful and it was like a one stop shop for us. You could decorate it as much or as little as you wanted because it was a gorgeous location. Take note brides! Picking a location that you are in love with can help you save on the decor expenses, just like Erin, find a venue whose esthetic aligns with your vision for your big day.

We asked Erin for her best advice for future brides and grooms on their big day. And she couldn't have said it better, To stop and enjoy the moment, it goes very fast. We spend so much time thinking about the little details and at the end of the day remember the only thing that matters is that you are marrying your best friend.
