A Rustic Fall Wedding at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort in Chittenden, Vermont

                    Pam Littmann (28 and a teacher) and Caleb Dorsey (29 and a shipbroker) knew they wanted to get married amid Vermont’s fall folia

Pam Littmann (28 and a teacher) and Caleb Dorsey (29 and a shipbroker) knew they wanted to get married amid Vermont’s fall foliage. As soon as they saw the view from the Mountain Top Inn & Resort in Chittenden, Vermont, they knew they had to host their wedding weekend there. Inspired by the season and Pam’s favorite color, event designer Schoolhouse Garden helped the couple decorate with orange and French blue. Pam and Caleb hand-stamped and embossed all their stationery with their custom monogram in a gold laurel for a touch of elegance. Their ceremony took place on a hilltop, where they said “I do” under a natural wooden arbor crawling with vines, orange berries and flowers. Following a recessional and a shower of heart-shaped paper confetti, Pam and Caleb’s cocktail hour and reception took place in the barn, where their rustic theme came to life with wooden farm tables, neutral chiavari chairs and more fall-colored flowers. A canopy of string lights and paper lanterns lit the dance floor for Pam and Caleb’s first dance, performed by their band Eturnity. One local touch we loved? For wedding favors, Pam and Caleb gave their guests miniature bottles of Vermont maple syrup from a place they had visited together. See all the pretty details and sweet moments below, beautifully captured by Rodeo & Co. Photography—including Pam and Caleb’s fall-inspired four-tier wedding cake.

Pam carried a lush, textured bouquet of neutral blooms, including blush dahlias, peach garden roses and ivory hydrangeas and spray roses. Pops of canary yellow hypericum berries, dusty miller and greenery enhanced the fall feel.
Pam and Caleb wanted to get married outdoors amid the fall foliage, and the Mountain Top Inn & Resort in Chittenden, Vermont, completely won them over. "We chose this location because it was what made us fall in love with the venue—the view was absolutely breathtaking, and it brought us to tears the first time we saw it," Pam says.
Pam and Caleb shared their first kiss under this fall-inspired wedding arch. It had natural wooden posts with an arch crawling with vines, orange berries and pops of white flowers.
Guests tossed heart-shaped confetti over the newlyweds as Pam and Caleb walked up the aisle to Handel's "The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba." And to be environmentally conscious in the gorgeous outdoor locale, the paper hearts were biodegradable.
Pam chose a white fingertip-length veil with a blusher—her mother insisted she'd want one. While she didn't wear it over her face walking down the aisle, it made for some lovely keepsake photographs.
Pam and Caleb hand-embossed their gold custom monogram surrounded by a gold laurel on their stationery, including their folded white ceremony programs. French blue script and a binding ribbon completed the style.
Pam's bridesmaids wore short, turquoise dresses with a strapless sweetheart neckline and ruched bodice. Each bridesmaid bouquet included neutral hues with pops of orange to evoke the fall theme.
Neutral blooms with vibrant orange flowers composed the floral centerpieces, positioned in low mercury glass vases. This arrangement included dahlias, hydrangeas, hypericum berries, eucalyptus and dusty miller.
Wooden farm tables with neutral table runners and brown chiavari chairs added to the rustic ambience inside barn reception at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort in Chittenden, Vermont. Low centerpieces of ivory and orange flowers continued the fall theme, and paper lanterns and string lights overhead brought out a romantic ambience.
Neutral linens covered the round tables, which were surrounded by brown chiavari chairs. A bag of Jordan almonds tied with gold leaf waited atop a peach napkin at each place setting.
Pam and Caleb's band, Eturnity, introduced them at their barn reception and performed their first-dance song, "You Are the Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne. Pam and Caleb took dance lessons to prepare, but they ended up winging it. "It was better that way because we were so nervous," Pam says.
Pam and Caleb had a four-tier ivory cake covered in lined buttercream. A greenery wreath surrounded the confection, and orange and white flowers and yellow hypericum berries added touches of fall hues.
For a locally inspired wedding favor, Pam and Caleb attached hand-printed thank-you tags to miniature bottles of Vermont maple syrup. The syrup came from Sugar House, which they toured during their first visit to Vermont together.
