  • Wedding: May 2015

OK, here goes!!! My fiance and I just decided on sometime in May last night, a little more than a week after we got engaged!! This is exciting. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am going to leave out our names and the photo of us. I’ve been on the boards for a long time and want to protect my privacy. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Age: 26

  • Location: Northern Vermont– we live in a small town in the Northeast Kingdom and are planning on having our wedding either in our own fields or at an old summer camp a couple miles away. Or maybe somewhere else nearby, depending on costs. We have a few months to figure out our venue!

  • Occupation: Master’s student/plant ecologist

  • FI’s age: 41. Works well for us!

  • FI’s occupation: Freelance editor, writer, and builder with his father’s construction company

  • Kids: None yet! Maybe a couple years after we get married. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Pets: 2 crazy cats. I want to get chickens but first we have to build a coop!

  • About you: I adore being outdoors, gardening, plants (obviously since I’m a plant ecologist ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), and sewing. My FI’s and my home is in the middle of nowhere in the the woods, and we love that we are able to be pretty self-sufficient; we have a huge vegetable garden, and he built our house. I’ve partially supported myself in the past by being a professional seamstress, and once I’m done with my grad school classes in December, I’ll be sewing for others again on top of my regular job. . . and I’m making my own dress!!! I am SO excited to start designing my dress and finding fabrics and laces and digging through my mom’s and my collection of vintage lace. The dress is going to be a pretty detailed creation with a lot of fabric flowers and lace applique, so I’m glad we have a year and a half before the wedding!

  • Engagement Date: October 25, 2013

  • Wedding Date & Significance: We haven’t set an exact date yet. I’ve always wanted to get married when the apple trees are in bloom, and I’d love to be married under a blossoming apple tree. I recorded when the wild apples near our house bloomed this year, and we’ll pay attention to that next spring, and based on that info, we’ll pick a date this coming May.

  • Wedding Venue: Not sure yet, maybe our own fields or maybe a summer camp near us, or maybe somewhere else. . . the Old Stone House Museum in Brownington VT comes to mind.

  • Wedding Colors: No idea!!! Probably they’ll involve green, since that is a mutual favorite color for my Fiance and me. I’m not really into having set wedding colors, anyway.

  • Honeymoon Location: Britain? Out West? Maritime provinces of Canada? Depends on the budget we have, and we will not know what that is for a little while.

  • What are you most excited about going through this planning process: Figuring out a lovely wedding that expresses something about who we both are; we’re going to write our own vows and I think the ceremony will involve aspects of a handfasting. Making my dress.

  • What are you least excited about going though this planning process: Oh, my. Family drama. There have been a lot of complicated issues both in my family and between his and my families, so I am expecting some rotten drama. Crossing my fingers that everyone behaves most of the time, though!
