Indian Fusion Wedding at Under Canvas Zion

It only made sense that we returned to Under Canvas Zion for our first wedding of the year! Nothing like glamping and celebrating our clients to get back into wedding planning mode. This was another adventurous wedding weekend full of fun, good food, and breathtaking views.

Welcome Party

To kick off the glamping weekend, guests arrived onsite to a welcome party. From onsite traditional henna to a Mexican food truck, this was such a great start to Simi and Ryan's celebration. Especially for outdoor experiences like this, we recommend that our clients gift their guests with welcome bags. These can include cute favors and essentials like sunscreen for the desert heat.

Getting Ready

Simi and Ryan got ready for the day alongside their wedding party! This is an incredibly special time to spend with your bridesmaids and groomsmen before the festivities begin. By the way, if starting your wedding day glamping looking over the desert and enjoying a drink (or two) sounds like a dream, let's chat! We would love to bring your adventurous day to life.

Bridal Attire

Let's take a moment for this stunning bride's look. How beautiful is this bridal henna? Simi completed her look with head-to-toe gold accessories and a lush boho bouquet. Take a look at how her final style turned out.

First Look

After getting ready for the day, Simi and Ryan shared a first look before the ceremony. Once your timeline for the day starts to pick up, you will be surrounded by others for the full day. For a moment alone, we recommend including a first look. Trust us, this won't take away from your big moment during the ceremony!

Ceremony

Now it's time for the ceremony. The views from the ceremony sites at Under Canvas locations are hard to beat. From Zion to the Smoky Mountains, we are always impressed. Fun fact: Simi and Ryan got to say "I do" twice! They shared a romantic beachside elopement months before their big day. How sweet is that?

Details

It is so important to make your guests feel involved throughout your wedding day. Simi and Ryan gathered notes from their guests as their guest book and featured polaroids of their loved ones on the table seating chart!

Wedding Party

Before couple's photos, it was time to capture the wedding party. We cleared off the ceremony spot for these photo opts!

Bridesmaids

If this isn't bride squad goals, we don't know what is. These dresses are now one of our favorite bridesmaids' looks! It can be exciting to explore other color palettes outside of classic neutrals. With the natural landscape in the background, these photos are incredible.

Groomsmen

The groomsmen looked extra dapper in their matching outfits. Tip from a wedding planner: ditch the suit jackets after the ceremony (or all together) for a chic non-traditional wedding style.

Bride & Groom

Simi and Ryan went on an adventure for their couple's photos. This is often one of our clients' favorite memories on their wedding day. It can be such a blast to explore the desert or even hike to a mountain top for those photo moments!

The Dancefloor

After couple's photos, it was time to party with guests! After enjoying a treat from the dessert bar, this group spent the rest of the night on the dance floor. Even the pups had a great time. What a wonderful way to start our wedding season here at 'Cause We Can Events!

NEW Nashville Event Venue: Saint Elle

Even in the midst of wedding planning, I always make time to tour new venue spaces! Today I am sharing a look into a fresh new modern event venue in Nashville, Saint Elle! This indoor venue includes a modern industrial flare with plenty of natural light. Also, if you love houseplants and fresh green foliage you will love this space! Saint Elle brings the feeling of the outdoors inside. So, no matter the season, we think this is a wonderful place to celebrate.

Getting Ready Spaces

The future newlyweds need a special space to get ready for their big day! Saint Elle provides two onsite options for this.

The Suite

The suite is a bright and airy getting-ready room perfect for you and a small wedding party to start off the day. With a salon-style vanity area, this is such a dreamy space for hair and makeup! According to Saint Elle's website, The Suite also includes:

-Private restroom

-Wet bar outfitted with glassware, plateware, coffee maker, etc..

Green Room

If you and your partner are looking for a more edgy getting-ready space, consider the green room! This is another private suite for future newlyweds and their wedding party. If a larger group will be joining you before the day officially begins, this is the place to be. Even if you will not personally be utilizing this space, your wedding band can use this as an actual Green Room, of course! According to the venue's website this space includes:

-Pub table

-Lounge seating

-Barcart, glassware, mini fridge, wardrobe rack, full length mirror and bluetooth speaker.

Wedding Spaces

Onto the wedding ceremony and reception spaces. I love when there is more than one option available for these aspects of a wedding. It makes personalizing your big day and accomodating different guest counts so easy!

The Bow Truss

Right when you walk into this venue, you will see The Bow Truss. This is the ultimate reception space with an onsite bar available. At Saint Elle, you will work with their Bar Director for your curated drink experience. You might also choose to host your ceremony here. This is great for those that want to keep everything in one place!

The Conservatory

The Conservatory can be accessed adjacent to The Bow Truss. Use this area for your ceremony or as an extension of your reception. Hello, guest lounge and cocktail hour!

The Patio

Provide your guests with an outside extension of the venue on The Patio! You can create outdoor tables or lounge areas for guests to relax and step away from the dance floor. For intimate weddings, you might choose this spot as your ceremony space.

Kitchen & Amenities

This certainly isn't the most exciting part for most people about a venue tour. As a wedding planner, however, I am so excited about this catering kitchen! If you are planning a wedding here, the logistics just got easier. Saint Elle provides a spacious kitchen ont he main floor with: a double door commercial fridge, double basin commercial sink, dedicated power for steamers/warmers, coffee makers, etc.

Other sweet amenities listed on the venue website include:

-Event Office: your event planner can store any bins, personal belongings, etc so they are out of the way and ready for clean up after the wedding
