Jillian & Zach Colby, May 2009 Lunenburg, Vermont with Brian Post

It was a pleasure to work with Jillian and Zach Colby last May!  They put so much time, hard work, and love into their day — from the centerpieces (Zach cut all the birch logs to use as pedestals for the table arrangements), the tent floor (also built by Zach), the lights in the trees (which they started as soon as the snow began to melt in March), to the lanterns in the tent (Jill spent hours!)…they did it all!  They had a beautiful spring wedding on the Colby’s property in Lunenburg, Vermont!
 I thought this would be a good time to share their beautiful day. I hope you are inspired! 
Plum and eggplant purples, spring lime green and white were the theme colors.
Peonies, calla lilies, cymbidium orchids, lily of the valley, lisianthus, green roses, hydrangea, lady’s mantle, and touches of dusty miller were the featured flowers of Jill’s bouquet.
The bridesmaids carried small hand held bouquets with purple and lime green hydrangea, purple calla lilies, mini cymbidium orchids, lady’s mantle, and dusty miller.
The programs for the wedding were hand made books with wooden jackets burned with their Jill and Zach’s initials. 
The escort table is always a favorite table or display of mine…  This one especially, with moss, birch, and tons of candle light was extra special.
The reception was festive and inviting with great bold color.  Jillian had fun with celadon green table lines and plum napkins.  The birch stumps were perfect pedestals.
Fruitwood ballroom chairs were a must!  The purple sashes gave it a formal finished look.
No detail was overlooked!
Zach cut extra birch logs and hollowed them out for the head table.  The bridesmaid’s bouquets were set into the logs to be transformed in the head table centerpieces.
This is the floor that Zach built!
