Lauren & Grant | Lake Champlain Wedding with Baby’s Breath

Living in hectic New York City, Lauren and Grant wanted their wedding to be anything but. So they opted for a romantic, low-key wedding in Vermont, where they both attended college…

Baby’s breath decorated the wedding: a wreath of baby’s breath marked the ceremony site, bridesmaids carried baby’s breath bouquets, and the bride wore baby’s breath in her hair. Baby’s breath even adorned the wedding cake!

Says Lauren: My mother was my Maid of Honor. My mother’s famous line when I was growing up was, “I’m not your friend, I’m your mother,” but at some point she relented and became my best friend. The night I got engaged, my mother was the first person I called and I knew there was no one else I’d rather have next to me while I was saying “I do.”

Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  Grant and I both attended UVM, and we had the most incredible college experience and continue to visit frequently. When we got engaged, we both knew that we wanted to say our “I do’s” in Vermont. The Brick House was the first of 5 venues that we planned to see on our first Vermont wedding planning weekend, and as soon as we got there we both knew The Brick House was where we were meant to get married. The amazing views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks completely blew us away. The house had a warm, cozy, lived in feel. We sat on the screened in porch, overlooking the mountains, picturing our friends and family around us and knew we had found the spot!

What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  Living in fast paced New York City, I knew that I wanted my wedding to be the opposite of that. My inspiration for the wedding was natural, minimalist, elegant and comfortable. We had wood benches for the ceremony, the food was served family style and shoes were optional!

What was your favorite moment or part of the day?  During dinner I looked around the tent and realized that every person that I love was sitting around me. It was surreal. Wedding planning can become extremely stressful, but in that moment I realized that the table linens, matching ties, and stationary really didn’t matter.

What was the best advice you received as a bride?  Delegate! While I was wedding planning, all of my friends and family would check in with me on a weekly basis, asking what they could help with. It was such a relief when I would offload a task. I hope they all know how much I truly appreciated that.

What advice do you have for other brides?  Don’t sweat the small stuff! It is tempting to get involved in every little detail of your wedding but don’t! Hire people and vendors based on their previous work, explain your vision, and let them do their thing. Chances are an experienced florist knows how to put together a beautiful floral arrangement better than a stressed out bride.

  • I agree, Lake Champlain has just breathtaking views. My boyfriend and I had taken an evening cruise on Lake Champlain and it was just dreamlike. We had gone on the Spirit of Ethan Allen cruise ship and along with the evening cruise was a light dinner. We certainly ended our trip with a magical evening. Check out there website, they also host wedding receptions and the weddings themselves!
