L and J's Equestrian Estate Wedding - PART 2

Updated: Jul 7

South Woodstock, Vermont

Part 2: A casual BBQ and the most country formal wedding ceremony

When meeting L + J, their strong family values were immediately apparent. With a focus on family involvement, we crafted a weekend event blending formality with whimsy, tailored to a farrier and creative writer/artist couple.

From building event sites and transforming the indoor riding arena, to personalizing large and small details, our mission was to deliver exceptional guest experiences for a global gathering of loved ones.


Friday evening the couple hosted an outdoor casual bbq for all guests. Everyone arrived to the country tunes of Nashville singer-songwriter Bobby Cool and throughout the evening enjoyed farm to table grazing stations, lawn games, maple sugar house tours, and carriage rides.

Saturday, L:+J's traditional ceremony was held at a nearby quintessential Vermont church. Guests were greeted by children waiving handmade ribbon wands as the bride and her father riding in the horse and carriage proceeded down the highway to the church. Custom programs adorned with horseshoe charms designed by Emily Rose Ink to complement the stationery suite were passed out by groomsmen (aka cowboys!).

Subtle touches of greenery and flowers were added to the church pews and entrance by Birds of a Flower. The show stopper was the Bride's gown. Custom made and hand sewn in Europe (a reference to her family's heritage) layers of lace graced the long sleeves and high neck, defining her style for the formal marriage vows.
