Moody Vermont Fall Foliage Wedding At The Gorgeous Skinner Barn

The thought of having a wedding, surrounded by gorgeous golden yellows, vibrant oranges & fiery reds is the exact reason many couples opt to head to New England for a wedding among the stunning fall foliage.  Vermont, being a state that plays host to some of the most amazing viewing around, is definitely a hot bed when it comes to fall weddings.  When Jenna Shea & Ryan Page planned their wedding day, the vision of such an striking organic backdrop like a Vermont fall foliage wedding was exactly what they had hoped for.  Unfortunately mother nature had a different idea, raining the day before, forcing the couple indoors on the wedding day.  As things turned out, Jenna & Ryan actually ended up preferring the vaulted barn wedding, feeling even closer to their friends & family at such an important moment in their lives.

Foliage Accents– Its safe to say that the gorgeous Mad River Valley, come fall, is one of the more stunning photographic backgrounds for sweet couples marrying in the fall and this couple is now exception.  With the moody sky, the foliage takes on another personality, yet still showing off its wide range of colors.  Smartly so, Jenna & Ryan sampled similar tones for their florals, really bringing home that warm fall feeling.

The Best Lil Red Barn– I am playing favorites here, but trust me, The Skinner Barn earns it all on their own.  Little known fact, this is actually the venue that we got married in!  Literally from the moment we drove up to The Skinner Barn for a possible venue visit, we knew we found ‘The One’.  Peter Boynton {current owner} works hard to constantly preserve & improve upon this historic dairy barn originally built in 1891 by the Daniel Skinner family.  The farm is perfectly located in the Mad River Valley in a low key area allowing for your day to truly feel secluded and all your own.  This place is simply beyond!

Savvy Style– Jenna & Ryan really are the picture of the perfect bride & groom.  Jenna’s dress choice, perfectly understand with birdcage veil & fascinator does wonders to bring to life a sweet New England bride.  Ryan’s look is perfectly dapper, opting for a light beige suit with black bow tie accent.  The result is a modern couple with a slight nod to the old school.
