Boho Wedding Invitations Vermont Style!

The ceremony site - a double circle of sunflowers in an open field
Vermont suits this couple. Really well. The Bride and Groom met at the University of Vermont in Burlington and since graduation a few years back neither of them have felt the need to leave the Green Mountain State. So when it came to choosing a location for their wedding they searched for an outdoor location and what they found fit them perfectly!

 A simple save-the-date with a photo sticker for the guests to put on their calendar.
Natural, simple, greens. Done.

Homemade jams topped with a brown paper wrapper stamped with the couple's logo were the favors
Surrounded by sunflowers and love
Vintage and earthy. Those are the two words the bride used to describe what she was looking for in an invitation. Bringing in the fern clippings tied to the invitations added the natural touch she was looking for and I have plenty of ferns growing in my yard. Nice. 

As for the vintage part of the wedding? The bride wore her grandmother's wedding dress which was also worn by her mother! A few alterations, one of which was creating cap sleeves instead of long sleeves, and this vintage all-over lace gown became "Sarah". For the reception the vintage china was not matching but was all blue & white. It was truly a beautiful and delicious family-style dining experience for the guests. After dinner, the dancing to five different bands/other guests(!) went on into the wee hours.
