Sonja & Phillip | September 4, 2021 –

The picturesque weekend of Labor Day, September 2021 sets itself apart from many of the elegant wedding weekends at Edson Hill. Sonja & Phillip’s wedding fell on what many would argue was the most alluring day of the late Vermont summer; the warm sun and cool breeze was filled with birds songs and fresh summer air amidst the lush, mossy green Vermont landscapes. The couple planned their Stowe wedding weekend with fifty of their closest friends and family that lit up Edson Hill with joyous energy in every stride from beginning to end. 

S + P’s intimate weekend began on Friday evening with their rehearsal, where the couple and their guests gathered on the Tavern patio and exchanged warm smiles, laughs, and cheers before gathering to dine in The Dining Room at Edson Hill for dinner. The couple enlisted the talent of Randi Nonni Events to plan and design, combined with the distinct style of Blomma Flicka for an event filled with lush florals that spoke to the couple’s esthetic.

The groom designed one of the most unique ceremonies we have hosted at Edson Hill. A ceremony in the round on the Upper Wedding Meadow, Phillip had even carefully considered the exact position and trajectory of the sun for perfect light and their guest’s comfort that was captured by Two of Us Photography. The circular reception was truly stunning and unlike anything we have witnessed on the distinctive property. The aesthetic of Sonja & Phil’s special day was topped off by Phillip’s grandfather’s 1990’s Hasselblad 503cw camera; which gave him the honor of capturing their official formal wedding portrait on film on the camera he had brought all over the country during his travels.

The evening transpired with a picture perfect dinner on the patio that graciously overlooked the Worcester mountains in the distance. Blomma Flicka’s late summer florals popped with the array of greens that surrounded the couple’s Vermont wedding venue. Sonja & Phil cut their wedding cake from the one and only North Country Donuts as Africa by Toto played in the background; one of the couple’s favorite songs. Sonja danced to Sunshine on my Shoulders by John Denver for her father-daughter dance followed by Philip and Bobbi danced to My Wish by Rascal Flatts. Sonja & Phil complimented one another perfectly as they danced the night away with their closest friends and family.
