In the summer of 2018, Matt and Flavia hosted their Stowe Wedding at The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch. The Bride and Groom were from NYC and Brazil respectively. They chose The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch as their Vermont Wedding Venue for their destination wedding. Flavia’s sense of design directed the event towards upscale chic while her cultural heritage made certain that both the menu and the design palette were colorful. The the lush lawns, gardens, wildflowers and the surrounding Green Mountains added even more color to the event. The images below were all created by husband and wife team, Geoff & Wendy Portrait Gallery and do a good job of representing the story of this event: High End Brooklyn Chic with a Brazilian Flair! The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch loves a creative challenge and the menu for this wedding was a fusion between the cultures of the two families. The deserts were even shipped in from the couples’ favorite NYC Brazilian favorite bakery in SOHO. The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch is more than happy to accommodate custom requests for their NYC Wedding couples. That is one of the benefits of working with a high-end venue that is owner-operated. “The Barn” cares enough about the details to make your vision for a dream wedding event come true. And the owners are at each event covering every detail! Enjoy the images and imagine your destination wedding or New England Wedding at The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch.
Here at Stowe Wedding blog, we are focused on the covering the best of Vermont Weddings. Today, we focus on one of the most talented young designers we have had the pleasure to work with, Monica Flynn of Drape Art Design. Monica is young, but experienced well beyond her years, having known early on that wedding and event design were her calling. She channels her artistic talents into event planning and design in the form of custom draping, high end lighting, elegant furnishing and custom home sewn upholstery. Though based out of Rhode Island, we have seen Monica’s creations throughout New England and as far south as Maryland. In 2018, Monica and her talented team were chosen to design the event for the Red Sox World Series celebration.
Below is an image at newest Vermont Wedding Venue, The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch. This high end event rented out two other resorts in Stowe and closed them down, except for their guests. However, this NYC wedding couple chose to have their actual wedding ceremony and reception at The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch. Wedding planner for this event was Jackie Watson of Jaclyn Watson Events. Photographer was Jag Studios of NYC. For this event, Monica created custom draping and hung many disco balls.

Steve DePalma, owner of the Stowe Wedding Venue, The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch, “greatly enjoyed working with Monica. She is an artistic visionary with a young and energetic team that understand the level of effort it takes to meet the expectations of our clientele. By my personal design, our venue is beautiful of it’s own accord. But Monica has the design sensibilities to not over do things. She understands the nuances and fine line between artistic addition and distracting melange. It is always a pleasure to work with her and she how she can transform an already stunning space into something different, yet still just as beautiful. We are glad to have Monica and Drape Art Design as part of our team of vendors. Without such talented vendors that we trust to get the job done, it would be much more difficult for us to host high end destination weddings at the level that meets the expectations of our luxury event clientele”

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.
