Vermont Vendor Recommendations

February 2, 2021

I’ve worked in the Vermont wedding industry for almost five years, AND I’ve planned my own wedding–so I know the ins and out of the professionals in my industry.

The following are Vermont wedding vendors who I know and trust on a professional and personal level. They are organized, prompt, extremely talented, and total sweethearts. I highly recommend reaching out to them in advance, because they are in high demand.

The vendors listed below put their hearts into what they do, and it shows in their work. Many are based in Vermont or can travel. Click on their names to check out their website, and tell them Anne Mientka sent ya! 😉

Kristina of Vows by Kristina is wonderful and has a soothing and warm approach to weddings.

Carmen George of Carmen George Weddings. She has been an officiant for years and has officiated hundreds of weddings!

Kerri Duquette-Hoffman: Kerri’s poetic and heartfelt speeches will make you (and me) cry.

Both of these officiants work with you ahead of time to create a custom, personal, heartfelt ceremony that feels true to you and your partner. They also are very considerate, and step out of shots so that she isn’t in every photo of you two at the altar.



Wood Fire Food is INCREDIBLE. They roast their food over a flame and the production itself is beautiful, as is the food.

For the Love of Food has a variety of menus for every budget, and the food (and its presentation) is immaculate. The staff is wonderful too.



Kate’s Calligraphy creates gorgeous, luxe designs. The huge bonus here is that you’re going through a local company, who takes great care to make sure your invitations are perfect.

Charlotte Scott

(Charlotte also creates custom Snapchat filters, which guests absolutely love!)


Vince at Experience Events is the best. This company travels to VT for weddings often. They also have photobooth equipment available for rent!


Live Band

Randal Pierce- Randal is a musical genius. He plays piano in several bands and solo.

LACES- Laces is a 5-person band featuring keyboard, bass, drums, guitar, and horns. They are energetic and perfect for a fun cocktail hour! Contact them at


Live Wedding Painting

If you’re wanting to seriously WOW your guests and get a one-of-a-kind hierloom, Hope Sharp Art creates live paintings at weddings. Her work is seriously stunning, and she takes great care to make sure your painting is absolutely perfect.


Social Media Content

Isabella Williams creates content for shoots and weddings, and offers half day or full day service.



Chances are that you might have already booked a venue because that’s usually first on people’s To Do lists. Just in case you haven’t, here are my absolute favorites! They are not only gorgeous but have top-quality staff that ensure your day goes perfectly.
