Make it easy on your guests, and yourself, by creating a beautiful escort table. A table like this draws your guests over to ensure they find their table number for dinner.
This is a great opportunity to pull together themes used throughout the wedding. In this instance, Janet Dunnington Destination Weddings maintained the rustic, yet elegant design the bride and groom had envisioned throughout. Positioned just so, you had to walk by in order to take in the breathtaking view and scenery.

Welcome to another flawless wedding by Janet Dunnington Destination Weddings.
This beautiful ceremony was held in rural Vermont with a spectacular mountain view.
Memorial Day rehearsal dinner at the Celebration Barn in Manchester, VT. A casual BBQ, coordinated and implemented by Janet Dunnington Destination Weddings, was the perfect start to our couple’s wedding weekend here in the green mountains.
The Celebration Barn at the Inn at Manchester. Airstream provided by Hub’s Catering.
The airstream bar was stationed next to the covered terrace. It offered a unique touch for thirsty guests to enjoy.
Vermont ice cream was scooped and enjoyed by all from the Ben and Jerry’s cart.
A photo booth was located in the barn and allowed for guests to document the good times had throughout the night.

While h’ordeuvres were passed inside and out, dinner was served inside the barn. Simple flower arrangements in mason jars were used as the centerpieces while the tables were dotted with votive candles.
After dinner and toasts, friends and family gathered around the fire pit to enjoy the rest of their evening.
