Holiday Weddings

Posted in: Wedding and Ceremony Rituals

November may not seem like the most romantic month, but it is a great time of the year to plan your joyous wedding or commitment ceremony. Thanksgiving is all about being grateful for our abundant blessings, and a perfect time to honor your love for each other with ceremony and wedding rituals such as a Hand Blessing with Water or a Nature Exchange. December holidays are around the corner – a magical time of the year for candlelight rituals including lighting a Unity Candle, integrating the various spiritual traditions that are celebrated and bringing more love-light to your lives and those who love you. The New Year can be a symbolic new beginning for your relationship and a fun time to make your commitment legal and permanent or to create a Vow Renewal ceremony. Your ritual can be deep and spiritual, to fit the season, or simple, light and magical. There are many venues here in northern Vermont and New Hampshire including, but not limited to, the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont, The Inn at Mountain View Farm in East Burke, Vermont and the Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire that offer that cozy, golden glow of a warm fireplace as well as a more majestic view of snow-covered mountains. I would love to share your Holiday wedding with you!

Brew me a cup for a winter’s night.
For the wind howls loud, and the furies fight;
Spice it with love and stir it with care,
And I’ll toast your bright eyes,
my sweetheart fair.
~Minna Thomas Antrim, “A Night Cap,” A Book of Toasts, 1902

Summer Weddings in Vermont

Posted in: Wedding and Ceremony Rituals

Riverside Farm

The air is redolent with the scents of red clover, wild roses, bedstraw and various other flowers here in Northern Vermont.  The landscape makes for a magical wedding venue. Imagine the sound of moving water as a backdrop to your perfectly customized ceremony, echoing the emotional commitment that you share…..Imagine the ancient mountains, blanketed in leaf green and reflecting the blue of the sky; surrounding and supporting you as you take your vows.  Waterfalls, mountaintops, lakeside parks and the romantically restored historic barns are just some of the options available to couples planning a Vermont wedding.

Certain rituals lend themselves well to outdoor ceremonies including a Nature Exchange – offering each other a found symbol from nature that symbolizes your love for each other.  This symbol can be used later as a reminder of your spoken vows. Another ritual might be a Hand Blessing which can involve the use of natural waters or setting up a small table with a beautiful basin.  Vows and Kisses has added a new Boutique, offering lovely and unique artisan items, including blessing bowls and tables, online for purchase. Whether you plan a large gathering or an intimate commitment ceremony with just the two of you, Summer in Vermont offers romance at its best.

I look forward to sharing these abundant blessings with you!
