Vermont Spring Wedding at Riverside Farm – Corinne + Brett

Posted on Jul 27, 2014 in Real Weddings, Riverside Farm, Spring, Wedding Photography | 0 comments


For a Vermont wedding venue like Riverside Farm, the arrival of spring brings the arrival of wedding season.  Early Vermont spring has a unique beauty as nature comes back to life.  It’s a wonderful metaphor for a wedding, the start of a new season and a new life for each couple.

This season the first couple to marry at our wedding venue was Corinne and Brett.  They made the most of the Vermont surroundings as you’ll see in the unique photos by Daniel Aaron Sprague.  You’ll see a wedding weekend celebrated in all weather.  White umbrellas decorate the rain drizzled scene as the wedding party leaves the Bridal Cottage, white puffy clouds decorate the blue bird blue sky over the Riverside Farm meadow, the ceremony itself takes place sheltered among the classic hand hewn beams of of Riverside Farm’s Red Barn.

With the variety of spaces (Red Barn, Stonewell Barn, Stone Room, Wedding Meadow, Bride’s Cottage, Groom’s Cottage and even spaces at our own Amee Farm Barn and Amee Farm Lodge) Riverside Farm is a Vermont wedding venue you can make your own in sun, shade, rain and even snow.

Winter Wonderland – Snow, Wedding Barns, Fences + Fields – February 2014 Riverside Farm, Vermont

Posted on Feb 21, 2014 in Behind the Scenes, Riverside Farm, Seasons at Riverside Farm, Wedding Photography, Winter | Comments Off


Days like today it seems that the wedding barns and meadows at Riverside Farm are even more beautiful in winter than any other time of year.  The classic New England barns, the traditional split rail fences, the Green Mountains and broad meadows blanketed in snows are so clean and white and fresh.  The classic New England scene makes  the interior spaces and fireplaces of the farm that much more inviting.  That is until spring comes and we decide spring might be the most spectacular season for a Vermont farm wedding … and then comes full summer truly the ideal season …. until Fall comes to Vermont and brings it’s spectacular color.  We are left to enjoy each season.  Here are some new photos of Riverside Farm from January and February 2014.
