Bee Themed Vermont Wedding

Casey and John started dating in high school and grew up in the Oyster Bay area with frequent trips to a family home in Vermont. When John proposed to Casey after thirteen years of dating they knew Vermont would be the perfect place to say their vows. Park McCullough House is a thirty-five room mansion that sits on a 200 acre estate. It is considered one of New England’s finest preserved mansions and it served as the perfect vintage vibe the couple were looking for. The couple loves visiting tag and estate sales collecting all things vintage. Tablescapes contained various vases, containers and trays that held classic white florals. For a fun element, the couple collected vintage hats, glasses, umbrellas and other various accessories to accompany a hanging, vintage gold frame from a large maple tree outside the reception area to create a custom vintage photo booth.

Special elements included bee stamped zipped hoodies for the bridesmaids made by the bride and jars of honey for all their guests harvested from the couple’s beehive.

The couple loves to travel, making Japan their honeymoon destination, and collected vintage postcards for their guests to sign in place of a traditional guest book.

Fall nights can get cool in Vermont so the couple had flannel shirts available for guests to stay warm from Vermont Flannel Co.

To incorporate elements of Oyster Bay, the couple used vintage stamps from Oyster Bay on their wedding invitations.
