We were able to collaborate with a bunch of new wedding vendors from Vermont and New Hampshire last week at Alyson’s Orchards and their Simply Elegant Bridal Show in Walpole, NH. So this month, we decided to feature three Vermont and New Hampshire-based wedding vendors that may be worth a second look when planning your wedding.
First up was our neighbor at the wedding show, Vera Flora Farm. What makes them a unique and different wedding is their completely natural approach. All of the flowers are grown on site and then picked fresh for the wedding day. Vera Flora Farm is owned and operated by Sarah Barkhouse who named the company after her grandmother. Vera Flora Farm cultivates over 70 varieties of annual and perennial cut flowers from late June through late September. They are a seasonal company, therefore, only brides from June to early October can take advantage of the beautiful organic fresh flowers.
As a Boston Wedding Videographer, we are always connecting with new photographers in the New England area. Last Sunday, we connected with RomaDee Photography who is a southern New Hampshire-based photographer who finds herself shooting many of her of weddings in the Boston area. When you look at her work, it’s easy to see that she has a great eye to capture moments – a smile, a look – while still maintaining the professional qualities of composure and lighting.
Many wedding sites in Vermont and New Hampshire require brides and grooms to secure their own caterer for the wedding day. One wedding caterer that is highly regarded in the Southern new Hampshire area is Luca’s Culinary Journey Catering. Not only did Luca’s have some delicious food at the wedding show, but numerous vendors raved about their food and service. Whether it’s a luxury, formal sit-down dinner, or more casual affair, reach out to catering manager Karlie Zurmuhulen to begin planning your wedding day.

It’s time to turn our focus on some of the vendors that provide the details of the wedding day. The florist I always turn to in the Western Massachusetts area is Durocher Florist and they are my vendor of the month for October. I trust them so much that I used them for my own wedding nine years ago, and they are still my ‘go to’ florist for special deliveries to my wife.
It all starts with wedding coordinator Heather Sullivan who is one of those people in the wedding business that “gets it”. I’ve seen roses, gerber daisies, orchids and hydrangeas all look fantastic in Heather’s amazing bouquets, boutonnieres, or table displays. Heather will make you feel comfortable from the first meeting right up to your wedding day. Durocher Florist is always dependable and on time with their wedding day flowers. Since going into business in 2005, I have never come across a late or incorrect delivery, or an unsatisfied bride who used Durocher as their florist.
Durocher Florist will always tell you to clip, clip, clip! Those wedding magazines may have a lot of information that does not pertain to you, but clipping out bouquets, flower girl ideas, boutonnieres, center pieces and other flower arrangements will help you create a vision for your wedding day. Look below for some samples of Durocher’s outstanding work.
