Maple goodies and photo booths make for sweet weddings in Vermont
Two things surprise outsiders about Vermont — how much natural beauty there is in such a small state and how many marriages take place among the maple trees. People here can pick incredibly scenic venue — such as The Trapp Family Lodge overlooking the classic New England village of Stowe — but weddings here are a personal statement, a symbol and celebration of a deeper commitment. From the Round Barn for the quintessential bed and breakfast experience to the family barn, people consider how to make their wedding meaningful more than how to make them trend on Twitter.
So while trends in weddings may be running toward industrial, rustic is still in in Vermont. Well, rustic chic. And as greenery trends nationally right now, incorporating the beauty of plants and trees is nothing new here. In Vermont the trend for the menu uses local fare, venison, bison, lamb, cheese, and maple. Things others wouldn’t think to add maple syrup to are sweet wedding treats here. Because Vermont hosts many destination weddings, the event often morphs into a multi-day affair. Rehearsal dinners have become welcome receptions. And wedding receptions last so late into the night an after-party menu becomes part of the plan. In addition to more food, Vermont brides and grooms need more entertainment.
Variety will be essential on the entertainment menu, but photo booths are so popular planners rent them over multiple days. They create their own variety. Additionally, it’s become a must-have! The photo booth is as necessary as the wedding ring. It’s as much a mainstay as the first dance tradition. Those getting married in Vermont don’t want to miss a minute of the fun, so they are making sure photo booths are a part of all the wedding events. A good photo booth will capture memories for the wedding guests and for the bride and groom to review later. Choose a high-tech system that boast connections to social media, the ability to text, and will provide an album of the photos taken for the newlyweds. Selfie Station offers all the bells and whistles.
