Vermont Vendor Recommendations

I've worked in the Vermont wedding industry for almost five years, AND I've planned my own wedding (it was postponed due to COVID but that's a whole other blog post!), so I know the ins and out of the professionals in my industry.

The following are vendors that I know and trust on a professional and personal level. They are organized, prompt, extremely talented, and total sweethearts. I highly recommend reaching out to them in advance, because they are in high demand.


The vendors listed below put their hearts into what they do, and it shows in their work. Many are based in Vermont or can travel. Click on their names to check out their website, and tell them Anne Mientka sent ya! ;)





Makeup/hair

Heather Garrow Studio. She is a total pro, and has been doing makeup for years. She is great at accentuating the features you love about yourself.

Hillary Fay Studios.


(Both of them offer additional hair services as well.)


Hair

Sante Salon: Ashley is a pro at wedding hair and can make everyone in your bridal party look and feel amazing.



Day-of Coordination

You can hire these companies for long-term wedding planning or day-of coordination. Either way, they make your day completely stress-free. No worrying about timelines or if something was set up correctly.

Harlow & Dahlia


Venues

Chances are that you might have already booked a venue because that's usually first on people's To Do lists. Just in case you haven't, here are my absolute favorites! They are not only gorgeous but have top-quality staff that ensure your day goes perfectly.

Vermont Swiss and Bloom Farm

Tourterelle

Inn at Manchester

Middlebury Inn

Florists

Tipsy Tulip Florals

Nancy Bishop Florals


Bakery

Red Poppy Cakery


Officiants

Carmen George of Carmen George Weddings. She has been an officiant for years and has officiated hundreds of weddings!



Kerri Duquette-Hoffman: Kerri's poetic and heartfelt speeches will make you (and me) cry.

Both of these officiants work with you ahead of time to create a custom, personal, heartfelt ceremony that feels true to you and your partner. They also are very considerate, and step out of shots so that she isn't in every photo of you two at the altar.



Invitations

Kate's Calligraphy creates gorgeous, luxe designs. The huge bonus here is that you're going through a local company, who takes great care to make sure your invitations are perfect.

Charlotte Scott

(Charlotte also creates custom Snapchat filters, which guests absolutely love!)



DJs

Vince at Experience Events is the best. This company travels to VT for weddings often. They also have photobooth equipment available for rent! (Vince is my own wedding DJ!)


Live Bands

These bands are great for ceremony music, cocktail hour, and/or receptions.

Randal Pierce

Randal is a musical genius. He plays piano in several bands and solo.

Mae Barron

Mae plays guitar and ukulele, and specializes in romantic ceremony music. She'll play a few originals and mostly covers for your ceremony or cocktail hour.

Videographers

Danielle Hazelton

Eli Homes

Live wedding painting

If you're wanting to seriously WOW your guests and get a one-of-a-kind hierloom, Hope Sharp Art creates live paintings at weddings. Her work is seriously stunning, and she takes great care to make sure your painting is absolutely perfect.
