A Rustic Chic Wedding at The Quechee Inn in Quechee, Vermont
Frankie and Nate got engaged at Cape Cod, a frequent vacation spot for the couple in the summer months. After a rainy morning cleared into a sunny late afternoon, Nate asked Frankie if she wanted to go for a walk along the beach since it was low tide. As they made their way out to the mile mark, Nate got down on his knee and proposed. "It was such a quiet and intimate moment I wouldn't change for the world. As we made it back to the house, Nate wouldn't let me call my family so that we could "enjoy the moment." After thirty minutes, a mob of cars pulled into the driveway. Nate had coordinated to have my family come up from Connecticut and his family from Boston to celebrate the engagement," Frankie recalls.The couple got married at The Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm in Quechee, Vermont. "From the beginning of our planning we knew we wanted to get married in Vermont and have an outdoor ceremony with a reception under the tent," Frankie says. The couple had a rustic chic theme, with a color palette of light pinks and grays. The groomsmen wore navy blue suits and the bridesmaids wore blush pink maxi dresses which gave the wedding party a relaxed, casual look. Frankie didn't want to take away from the gorgeous outdoor wildlife of their location so she kept the flower arrangements simple--the day before the wedding she picked and arranged the centerpieces and displayed them in antique vases. The couple closed out their reception cooking s'mores over a huge fire pit.
