Jordan and Kevin met in high school in a small Vermont town. After moving across the country together they returned to the beautiful Vermont countryside to have their wedding at Squabetty, a hidden gem in Underhill, Vermont. They decorated with midnight blue, gold, and green. The sunny September day with the Green Mountains in the background was also filled with rustic little details – brass woodland animals, a naked cake, barn reception area, vintage polaroids, wood fired pizza, and fireworks to end the night!

From the Bride…
Before the Ring:
Kevin and I met in high school in our small town in Vermont. Despite having mutual friends, we just never really crossed paths (though I’d heard some of the girls call him “cute” before and was interested). I was actually joking around with some friends at school one day and said that I’d pick my next crush from the wall of student photos, and I randomly picked Kev’s. A friend introduced us, and the rest is history. We went to college together in upstate New York and relocated to Silicon Valley after graduation.
It was a pretty big surprise! Having been together 9+ years, it didn’t seem like the biggest priority. But one weekend last November Kev told me to pack my bags and take time off work for surprise trip to LA. We spent our day exploring the city and ending up at the Getty Museum at dusk. He led me out to a veranda with incredible views as soon as the sun was down and proposed with the city lit up beneath us.
Inspiration/Details of the Day:
I know everybody says this, but we really just wanted a party with the people we loved. We rented out a secluded property in the mountains for three days (it includes a house, a barn, and an upper/lower field among other things) and had time to relax both pre- and post- wedding. We did most everything ourselves, including the wedding playlists, the Bar, appetizers, archway, and flower arrangements. My mother-in-law made our cake and most of the decorations were antiques/thrift items that my mom picked up or already had. We loved the look of gold with our blue, purple and Marsala accents so we used that as a rough color palette. We dip dyed our napkins ourselves 🙂 My family is pretty big on pyrotechnics, so we finished the night with a spectacular fireworks display in the lower field.
