For Caitlin and Jarred, it was important for their wedding to be both fun, while also eco-conscious. The couple chose to use local vendors for every aspect of the day, creating a menu that used locally sourced ingredients and selecting a venue that is also the home of the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps, a non-profit that works with young people to maintain and preserve the natural spaces in Vermont. The couple went with a rustic theme for their wedding, with bright wildflowers and lots of DIY projects that gave the day a truly personal touch.

Paper lanterns in different shades of yellow gave the rustic barn space a bright pop of color.
