Euphoria Wedding Inspiration at The Wedge Building in Nashville

In between weddings, our planners still find a way to be creative! I met up with a dream team of local Nashville vendors for a Euphoria styled-shoot. I, Gabby, am based in Nashville so it was nice to get together with other wedding vendors to create something just for fun! Like many of you, I couldn't stop watching the popular show earlier this year (let's talk about Season 2 on Instagram). As a wedding planner, the fashion, makeup, and sense of creativity stood out to me! I couldn't help but wonder how the show's style would translate to weddings.

This styled photo shoot took place in the springtime so you will see influences from the season along with themes from the show. I'll also be giving you a mini-virtual tour of the venue this all took place at - The Wedge Building! Whether you are looking for inspiration for your big day or are searching for your Nashville wedding venue, keep reading.

Let's take a look at this Euphoria wedding inspiration at the Wedge building in Nashville together!

The Wedge Building

The Wedge Building is an indoor industrial venue space. There is a coffee shop and art gallery next door so this venue is definitely for all of the artsy, creative couples out there! It is an open space ready to transform into your vision. The venue is a bit more intimate while still providing plenty of room for all of the traditional wedding events from the ceremony to the reception.

This space was perfect for this styled shoot because the vendors and I focused on creativity! We all challenged ourselves to take inspiration from the show Euphoria and our own spin on it. Of course, while following the general mood board we all worked together on starting on Pinterest. Take a look at the blank space below!

Invitation Suite

How cute is this invitation suite? We decided on a mix of different fonts and colors to ensure that the invitations weren't too uniform. I love the printed floral design detail! Didn't Gabrielle von Heyking do a fantastic job creating this flat lay photo? Gabrielle also captured this entire day!

Makeup & Outfits

The makeup in Euphoria is practically a character itself. The makeup plays an important role in representing each character's unique style and emotion. The same idea can be applied to a wedding look! For the makeup and the outfits, we went with bold, out-of-the-box looks that are modern and trendy.

Ceremony Decor

If there is one aspect of your wedding you can keep minimal without sacrificing your aesthetic, it's the ceremony. The first step is making sure you love the ceremony space before anything is added. The bright windows and industrial interior at The Wedge Building stood strong on their own! The addition of some colorful florals by New Mood Floral added that pop of color and texture needed for the ceremony. We added some clear acrylic chairs to complete the look.

By the way, I filmed all of the behind-the-scenes from this day on my YouTube Channel! Be sure to watch the video below for even more details after reading this blog:

Table Decor

The table decor is where you can see this palette shine. Can you spot the repurposed ceremony florals? Creativity was truly woven into this day! The dried floral place cards on each colorful place setting also make perfect guest favors. I still can't decide what my favorite part of this tablescape is.

Desserts & Drinks

Remember the carnival in season one of Euphoria? We had to include some cotton candy for this wedding inspiration. The cotton candy even dissolved beautifully into a sparkly champagne drink. Then, we included the classic wedding cake decorated as a piece of art. I hope you enjoyed reading all about this Euphoria styled shoot!

Rainy Micro-Wedding at Under Canvas Smoky Mountains Filled with Love

Now that we are closer to the fall season, I have to share this micro-wedding from last year with you. Don't get me wrong, we love big weddings here at 'Cause We Can Events, but there is something so special about intimate weddings. If a larger wedding doesn't sound like your cup of tea but you are afraid of missing out on certain aspects of those events, keep reading. When Gia and Maro approached us with their Under Canvas Smokies wedding, we were incredibly excited. They had a smaller guest count but still wanted a party. So, we made it happen (it was easy with a dream of a group like this)!

Get ready for a beautiful day with lots of fun, a heartfelt group, stunning decor, and RAIN. Don't worry, we'll talk more about that. Let's dive into this rainy micro-wedding at Under Canvas Smoky Mountains filled with love.

The Couple

Adventurous, glamping weddings are our jam, but without the cool couples we work with, we wouldn't love our jobs as much as we do. Gia and Maro were so lovely to plan with! Our team stepped in a month before the wedding to coordinate the final details and take the last planning steps off of the couple. You can learn more about our Wedding Management Package here. This is a great option for those that want to take care of the bulk of the planning on their own but need some support when it comes to the logistics. Then, of course, our planning team continues to be there with you on the day of your wedding. Gia and Maro were planning this event as a destination wedding, so wedding management can also be super helpful for couples whose wedding location is not local to them.

Their style was romantic, modern, and boho. I think their outfits matched this aesthetic perfectly! The details like the hair pieces and printed jacket really added some unique flair to their wedding outfits.

A Rainy Ceremony

Rain was on the forecast for this wedding day right around the time of the ceremony. But, the couple and their guests didn't let that stop them! We moved the timing slightly so that it wasn't pouring during this portion of the day. The ceremony still took place outside and the raindrops were actually quite romantic for photos. Didn't Joy + Everette Photography do an incredible job?

Pro tip from a wedding planner: If you are planning a wedding that will be outside at any portion, always rent a tent. Even if you don't mind some sprinkles, you never know exactly how much it will rain or how items like your flowers will hold up. A tent will help you keep your peace of mind and you will be thankful you rented it if it isn't completely sunny outside. While this couple didn't have to use their tent for their ceremony, they did use it for the reception.

Look at the love on their faces! After saying their "I Dos", the guests celebrated the couple with these streamer poppers. Talk about a Pinterest-worthy moment.

The Party

After snapping some couples photos, it was time to party. The reception kicked off with some delicious spicy margaritas and a meal from Rothchild Catering. Then, the group enjoyed some heartfelt speeches. They even got to video call some loved ones for speeches during this sweet moment!

For the rest of the evening, the couple and their guests danced the night away. To make the dancing extra fun, guests added some feather boas, glowsticks, face crystals, and festival glasses to their looks.

What an unforgettable micro-wedding at Under Canvas Smoky Mountains!
