Quick recap: what is Vermont Weddings Best of 2021 Series?

A little backstory if you're unfamiliar: we started the Best of series last year (2020) to highlight some of the amazing work by the talented teams in the Vermont wedding industry. It's an opportunity to both celebrate a year's worth of weddings and inspire couples who are planning a future Vermont wedding. (A quick note on the word "best": the intention isn't to make this a competition between weddings, but to share a small, but representative, sample of the weddings in Vermont this year.  To that end, please know that we love each and every wedding that was submitted, and the final picks are carefully chosen based on a variety of factors to create a compelling series.)

Here's what you can expect:

All December, we'll be rolling out inspiring stories in various categories:

Plus, because the submissions were just THAT good, we're sharing our "semi finalist" picks for each category on Instagram. That means you'll want to follow us to see even more highlights, and come back to the blog each week to see the "best" picks in each category.

We recommend signing up for our newsletter - we'll send you an email each week with the highlights so you won't miss a thing. (Going forward we only send 1 - 2 emails a month.)
