Erika and Jason hosted a vibrant celebration tucked away in the Green Mountain state.
The bride’s striking bouquet included richly hued dahlias, straw flowers and zinnias with wheat and leafy fern sprigs.
Jason turned a routine weekday morning into a surprise proposal to Erika, which he then extended into an unforgettable, all-day outing to visit their favorite local New York City spots: coffee at Abraço, brunch at the Coffee Shop and massages at Great Jones Spa.
The Manhattanites’ admiration for personalized celebrations led them to host an awe-inspiring, custom-designed wedding at the bride’s childhood home in Putney, Vermont, a quaint town along the state’s southeast border.
Buckets filled with sun flowers and mixed florals added a fresh pop of color to the ceremony site.

Family and friends sipped on carrot bellinis and munched on popcorn before the ceremony.
Popcorn was served to guests to create a "movie moment" feel prior to the start of the ceremony.
The picture-perfect ceremony featured breathtaking views overlooking the Green Mountain National Forest, as well as a wooden entryway crafted by the bride’s neighbor, Faraway Farms.
Standing between two Italian candelabras that had belonged to Erika’s late grandfather, family friend and Bridal Guide’s editor in chief, Diane Forden, officiated the wedding.
