Brette & Jared envisioned their wedding to feel like their guests had stumbled into a black-tie party in the woods!

Rich jewel tones filled their day, bringing the beauty of nature into their chic tented reception and decor.

Spending the weekend at Flanagan Farm

The Barn at Flanagan Farm is connected to a charming farmhouse, where the couple was able to stay with their siblings before the wedding weekend! It was so special for the family to watch all the wedding magic come together, while enjoying the property and getting ready. Brette was a gorgeous modern bride in a low-back elegant gown from Ines Di Santo and refined glamour by Bei Capelli.

Black tie ceremony in the woods

Black tie attire filled the luscious woods where the ceremony was held under a radiant floral chuppah. The couple enjoyed a two year engagement, where they spent time finding and connecting with the vendors that would bring their vision to life! Lani Toscano Design both planned this gorgeous wedding and created the jewel tone florals that filled every aspect of the day.

The couple was set up by Jared's brother and a dear friend of the bride's - who are now married! Jared's proposal was the most romantic day of Brette's life, as he got down on one knee after a hike to the top Killington Mountain with their dog Ziggy. Afterward he surprised her by renting out one of their favorite restaurants, The Backroom, where their family had come from all over country (mid-pandemic) to celebrate their love!

Jewel tone reception with natural elements

The couple knew they wanted their reception design to embrace deep green and jewel tones paired with earthy accents. Although their inspiration was loose, Lani Toscano Design's dream team transformed the couple's ideas into a stunning sailcloth tented reception. The team brought the woods indoors, with trees and greenery as far as the eye could see!
