Tara & Matt | June 5, 2021 –
In the midst of a fully booked summer season due to pandemic postponements, combined with couples eager to say “I Do” as outdoor gatherings increased to normalcy, our team at Edson Hill was hesitant to take on any additional celebrations for the 2021 year as we prepared for a wedding season unlike one we had ever seen. Well, that was before we were introduced to Tara & Matt.
After meeting the duo and their families we quickly changed our minds. It was clear from the start that Edson Hill was a perfect match for the pair; from then on both sides were determined to find a way to make Tara & Matt’s dream Vermont micro-wedding come to life. Like many couples who choose Edson Hill for their Stowe wedding, Tara & Matt had deep personal ties to Vermont; so the 38-acre property was the perfect unique wedding venue to bring the two together forever and make the private estate their new “home-away-from-home”.
In what was the most intimate wedding of the season with the Bride & Groom joined by thirteen loved ones, the weekend’s events were just as lively despite the small group! The bride’s elegant dress was complimented perfectly with hair and makeup by H Studio. An outdoor family style Greek barbeque, a nod to the groom’s family heritage, on the Upper Patio on Friday night set with a single, long, family style table kicked off the weekend’s festivities with creamy floral arrangements and touches by the one and only Bramble + Bloom Designs.
The intimate ceremony was set at Edson Hill’s natural arbor overlooking the lush green mountains of Vermont. The beautiful, bubbly bride walked down the aisle with her father to Canon in D, played by the one and only Vermont Symphony Orchestra where she joined the groom to make their love official once and for all.
After the intimate reception, the family headed up to the Manor House to enjoy a gourmet feast in The Dining Room followed by cake cutting from North Country Donuts. While everyone was gathered to celebrate the marriage of Tara and Matt, the bride couldn’t neglect that the event fell on the groom’s birthday. Tara secretly worked on a very special surprise for her new husband and presented a painting of the property that she commissioned from local artist Juliet O’Neil who has deep ties to Edson Hill.
