Any fan of Shel Silverstein has probably dreamed of living in a treehouse at some point. I know I have! This treehouse elopement inspiration shoot captures the adventurous and laid back spirit that so many couples who choose to get married in Vermont share. The Moose Meadow Lodge, a log home and tree house wedding venue on 86 secluded acres in the Green Mountains is well-known for holding intimate weddings and elopements. It was the perfect place for these simple and beautiful, outdoorsy details! Somerby Jones Photography is behind the lens.
From (DIY Wedding Mentor & Somerby Jones Photography):
We wanted to incorporate simple DIY elements into the shoot that could be easily replicated for an elopement or small wedding. On the sweetheart table, the menu holder is a simple piece of moss-covered kindling with a slit we made to hold the menu. It’s something that anyone with a wood pile–which pretty much everyone in Vermont has–could easily make. The bride’s bouquet and the groom’s flask are wrapped in a blue and white baker’s twine to add a crafty feel and pick up on the blues that were subtly woven into the shoot. The florist, Laura from Unfurled Vermont, foraged for flowers to include in the all the florals, and Brittany from Bridge Street Hair kept both the bride’s hair and makeup simple as we envisioned the couple preferring to spend their time during their elopement weekend exploring the hiking trails with their dog and local area.
Waterbury is known for its craft beer, and with the craft beer in the final shots, we included a nod to the many couples who visit here each year to sample some of the world’s best beer. And we couldn’t have asked for a better pair of models, Dani and Corey, who are engaged and getting married in Vermont in just a few weeks. Being a couple who is getting married in the area, they perfectly understood the style we were going for it and fit it perfectly–right down to Corey’s beard!
