We spoke, with Steve DePalma, one of the owner operators of The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch. He stated, “We want our clients to enjoy their wedding day. To that end, we strongly encourage the development of a timeline that lends itself to a stress free and seamless event day experience.

We offer this service where we coach and coordinate the vendor team to orchestrate an event that follows the set timeline.

“Timing is Everything”
This old adage is especially true in the seamless coordination of a spectacular wedding event.
💍 Local Wedding photographer @ashleylargesse posted this image and some thoughts on this subject, that we share below:
I am [very] often asked for wedding planning advice. I think that most brides and grooms expect my answer to be related to the pretty color scheme or other lovely details . . .
So they are usually a bit taken back when I immediately go to the timeline. It's my number one area of focus.
Why? Because far too many couples accidentally create wedding day timelines that invite constant rushing alongside more opportunities for stress and anxiety.
Which to me, is a serious no-no on the wedding day. My best advice: build a timeline that allows for more soaking in. Soaking in the moments with your people. Soaking in the moments with your new wifey or hubs. Soaking in the music, actually eating the food and taking photos without a care about what's next in the day.
Spread it all out, and remember that this day will fly by as quickly as yesterday. Give yourselves a chance to be present
Couples are in love when they a Stowe Wedding Venue for their Vermont Wedding. However, life is full of twists and turns and at times things do not go according to plan. One of the things that both couples and venues for a New England Wedding never want to encounter is the cancellation of a wedding event. But sometimes things happen that are beyond a couple’s control or they simply have a change of heart.
We recently spoke with Steve DePalma of The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch, a Stowe Wedding Venue about the subject of cancellations and his response follows. “Venues never like to see a couple cancel a wedding. This is especially true when events are cancelled within months of the event. As a venue that is high in popularity and demand, couples quite often book years before their event. One things couples may want to consider when signing a contract for a wedding, is the purchase of cancellation insurance.. For a nominal fee couples can be covered in case of unforeseen circumstances or simply a change of heart. “
There are several companies that sell wedding cancellation insurance and depending on the company and coverage, can cover many reasons for cancellation as well as many different aspects of the event. The only company we have seen which covers a “change of heart” is Wedsure. According to their website, quotes take 15 seconds and start for a little as $95. When couples are planning destination weddings, there are many pieces that need to come together to pull off a successful event. Choosing a venue with a reputation for service and responsiveness, such as The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch, is a good start. But consideration of wedding insurance may be an option for you to consider as well.

Kriti and Kunal, a Boston couple came to us with a vision and we worked together for over a year to bring it to fruition. Their Stowe Wedding included a Indian Sangeet, which was a unique and colorful event where guests from around the world performed in the main venue, while we set up luxury henna stations and Indian and Mediterranean Food Stations in a large Tent on the great lawn. Although Kriti was a Boston Bride her guests came from all over the world for this destination wedding. The event was so much fun and we loved working with this couple to create this luxury New England Wedding. Enjoy the video below provided by Love Buzz.
