Woodland Fall Elopement at Autumn Lane Estate in Maine

There really is nothing quite like an intimate elopement surrounded by nature. Today we are adventuring to Maine for the most dreamy woodsy elopement. This rustic boho design will surround you with the feeling of crisp autumn air with colorful fall tones and effortlessly romantic details.

Wedding Arch & Florals

This eco-friendly floral wedding arch seems to emerge from the ground, blending in perfectly with the fall surroundings. The florals were foraged locally in Maine, keeping the theme of the forest consistent. This is such a creative and sustainable way to honor the location of your elopement! The addition of dried textural elements like the seasonal leaves is so unique for this ceremony design.

The bridal bouquet was a continuation of the wedding arch following the colorful fall palette. A mix of warm marigold, burnt orange, deep reds, and blue tones brought pops of color to this elopement. If you are planning an outdoor wedding but want to include more colors, add in plenty of fresh florals to keep things inspired by nature!

Bride & Groom Attire

The bridal look was minimal and ethereal with a flowy floral length gown. For the bride's accessories, she wore dainty and modern jewelry pieces to complete her elopement look. The groom's muted blue suit was so chic, complementing the wedding florals.

The Barn & Lounge Decor

This sweet local barn at Autumn Lane Estate is the perfect Maine elopement location. It is a great spot for photography with a wooden backdrop and modern barn silhouette! Even with intimate elopements, adding a lounge area is a great way to extend your venue space. We added in a matching floral garland, a simple accent bench, and a vintage-inspired rug.

Table Design

How cute is this table design? We selected a two-tone wooden round table and chairs to place our fall decor. The cascading natural floral garland made a stunning centerpiece. We added organic-shaped plates layered between a real seasonal leaf to each place setting. The linen napkins and flatware remained simplistic to allow the place settings to shine.

The Cake

Let's talk about this beautiful cake! The minimal two-layered was decorated with sprigs of pampas grass and a piece of fresh fern with a few more fall florals at the base. We paired the cake with a simple wood cake stand. Of course, we couldn't resist having the bride capture a photo with the sweet treat!

Fall 2020 Weddings Trends to Watch For

With so many changes in the wedding industry due to COVID-19, we are going to see adjustments in fall trends this year. For those who were on top of their game and published posts at the beginning of the year, I'd be curious to see how they would write about trends now. There will be old trends that will be forced out such as self-serve anything, cheeseboards and over the top wedding decor but that's not to say you can't modify these  trends to make them work. COVID-19 is a historical moment and one that is taking the cake this year.

Intimate Weddings Are Here to Stay

Elopements, Microweddings, intimate weddings... Whatever you want to call them they are going to be the top trend this fall. To be quite honest, I think we were heading in this direction regardless as our elopement package inquiries have been up for the last year!  What makes a wedding intimate? We are thinking guest counts will be 40 or less this year.

Plexiglass Cake Display

Okay, this one may be a bit of a stretch but I've seen a lot of discussion on various Facebook groups about bride and grooms not wanting to give up their wedding cakes this year. With new COVID restrictions in place, you're going to have to have a "sneeze guard" to protect that cake from possible germs. My thought? Put that cake in a really cool plexiglass container like this.

Timeless Wedding Videography

We have been put to the test this year and are coming out wanting all the positive memories. I think it's on the top of everyone's list this year to hire a videographer as it will help preserve the memories of being together with friends and family. A video is the perfect way to relive those moments, funny or emotional. The only trend I wish that would go away, "we don't need a big production just a couple of minutes."

Personal Small Bite Appetizer Plates

As mentioned earlier, there are ways to take past trends and modify them to work in this new environment. Instead of a large grazing board filled with cheese, cured meats and fruits, we can take this idea and make it small. Using small plates, such as this one, you can create mini grazing boards for people to take with them during cocktail hour.

An Adventurous Wedding of Your Dreams

You can officially say good bye to the wedding of your parent's dreams. You've been through the ringer this year planning a wedding so I think all bets are off! It's about high time that you plan the wedding of your dreams. Perhaps an adventurous wedding in the desert like this Boho Joshua Tree Elopement? Or personal festival style wedding? Whatever you choose to do make sure it's something you'll look back on and be glad you did it your way!

Fall Barn Wedding at the Historic Santa Margarita Ranch

If this is what a barn wedding is all about, I'm ready to do many more! When I drove up the long dirt road through these spectacular wheat fields for Kristen and Scott's rehearsal at the Historic Santa Margarita Ranch, I'm pretty sure I shed a few tears of joy. The sun was hitting the golden wheat so perfectly that I knew their wedding photos were going to be incredible. Ready to see this beauty?

Getting Ready on the Ranch

The Historic Santa Margarita Ranch has a beautiful little bridal suite that works great for getting ready and putting finishing touches on hair and makeup.

It seems it doesn't take the guys as long to get ready so they made the most our of their free time before the ceremony started. There's a really cool vintage school bus that has been remodeled inside and it was the perfect hang out spot for the boys!

An Intimate First Look

As we crept closer to the ceremony start time, we brought the bride and groom together for their First Look. Get the tissues because the groom's reaction had everyone in tears!

The Handmade Details

This couple was surrounded by very talented friends and family members. One bridesmaid put together all the florals and another bridesmaid made all of their wooden signage. Pretty amazing! Take a peek at some of the details inside this barn wedding.

The Best Ceremony of all times

I don't think I've laughed and cried like this at a ceremony in a long time. Kristen and Scott wrote their own vows and made them funny, personal and truly representative of each other as a couple. Most of the ceremony photos we have are of people laughing and crying!

The Cake

The Grand Finale for a lot of weddings is the wedding cake. I've actually noticed that older guests won't leave until after the cake has been cut and they've had a piece to celebrate the newlyweds! Since Kristen and Scott had a small cake for themselves and some family members, the rest of the guests got to enjoy some amazing ice cream from Negranti Ice Cream in the cutest truck ever!

Fall Wedding at the South Coast Botanic Garden

Garden Wedding in Palos Verdes

Fall is here! Every year I hope to see the Southern California trees change colors but instead I settle for the somewhat cooler weather and the appearance of all things pumpkin at Trader Joe's. The Fall wedding season is definitely one of my favorites. Guests get to enjoy seasonal menus, darker colors in their decor and get cozy by the fire pits. We're celebrating this lovely fall wedding at the South Coast Botanic Garden on the blog today! P.S the bride designed her own invitations and hand painted all the pretty signs!

Getting ready earlier

Getting ready the morning of your wedding should be anything but stressful. Something to consider if you're having a late fall outdoor wedding (late October or November) is that the sunset will be a lot earlier. That means, you should plan to have your ceremony earlier in the day as well and therefore, you're 'getting ready' time will have to start earlier as well.

Hair & Skin Care Routine

If you're not a morning person, consider washing your hair the night before and lathering lot's of moisturize on before bed. To avoid puffy eyes the morning of your wedding, stay hydrated the night before and go to bed early. I know it's not what you want to hear on your wedding weekend but, trust me, you'll be glad you did.

Coffee mug Wedding Gift Idea

Breakfast & champagne

Even though you might have butterflies the morning of your wedding, you need to eat something. Have your Maid of Honor be in charge of wedding day brunch and mimosas to take the edge off! Remember, stay hydrated throughout the day too!

Succulent boutonnieres for groomsmen

Outdoor Ceremony

Like I mentioned earlier, if you're having an outdoor ceremony in the Fall, it's likely that the sunset will be significantly earlier than it would be during the Spring or Summer. Planning tip: The first thing I do when I start creating a wedding timeline for clients is to insert the sunset time. The reason I do this is because I want the "golden light" romantic photos to happen the hour surrounding the sunset. This means, the ceremony should be at least 1 hour or more BEFORE sunset time.

A Garden Reception

After a beautiful wedding with a traditional tea ceremony, modern vows and lot's of happy tears, guests were escorted to the meadow for some sushi, drinks and dancing. Planning Tip: One thing we like to always recommend to our Fall wedding couples is to rent heat lamps! I know it's not a sexy rental item to have on your list but your guests will appreciate you for keeping them warm once the sun sets. If you don't like the look of the metal heat lamps, for a small extra fee you can ask your rental company to wrap them in pretty much any color you want!

Fall Wedding Photos

All in all, I still think Fall weddings are the best. The air is crisper, sure, but the sunsets are spectacular. If you are considering a botanical garden as your wedding venue, I recommend checking out the South Coast Botanic Garden because you'll have 86 acres of incredible greenery and cool plants for your sunset photos.

Eco-Friendly Wedding Inspiration at Wanderwood Barn Venue in Maine

We are planning more weddings than ever in one particular state lately here at 'Cause We Can Events and we love it. In 2019, lead planner, Jessica moved to Maine. If you know us, you know we are fans of unique and adventurous weddings in breathtaking places. There are so many cool places to host weddings in the area so we make it an effort to discover new (or at least new to us) venues. Today, we are bringing you along for a styled wedding photo shoot. Our Maine team worked together to create the captivating, natural, and intimate wedding vision you are about to see. Keep reading to discover this eco-friendly wedding inspiration at Wanderwood barn venue in Maine!

About Wanderwood

Wanderwood is an intimate event venue and organic farm in Maine. The owners, Kelsey and Matt are passionate about sustainability making active efforts for the cause such as onsite composting and recycling onsite. They also grow their own flowers that are available for purchase on your wedding day! This venue even offers a farmhouse that can accommodate 8-10 guests for lodging. This is a wonderful way to experience the venue even more! Here are more details about hosting a wedding at Wanderwood:

  • Renovated and heated 1970s barn for hosting weddings
  • Accommodates up to 200 guests from May through October and up to 75 guests from November through April
  • Ideal for weekend weddings at the 95-acre property
  • Located 10 minutes away from downtown Damariscotta and Newcastle

After reading this blog, you can discover even more details about hosting a wedding at Wanderwood on their website.

Eco-Friendly Wedding Inspiration

Onto the wedding inspo! We utilized the beautiful outdoor space at Wanderwood for this styled shoot. A styled shoot is simply a photo shoot capturing a mock wedding. This is a great opportunity to introduce couples to new venues and local vendors. It can be super helpful to see a space in some type of "wedding" form when viewing it for the first time. Styled shoots make this possible!

One of our favorite local Maine photographers, Katelyn Mallet captured this day. We conceptualized a barn wedding day with an eco-friendly theme. A natural color palette, organic florals straight from the farm, and the intimate style all brought this idea to life. It is always fun to work with our wedding vendor friends to bring you creative inspiration.

Check out the final product!

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!

Photography and Videography: @joyandeverettephoto
Officiant: @sensationalceremoniestennessee 
Catering: @rothchildcatering
Hair & Makeup: @intensifybypatience
 Venue & Bar: @undercanvasofficial

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!

Cozy Winter Wedding in Maine at Camp O-At-Ka

If you're new to our blog, welcome! We're adventurous wedding planners based in Nashville and Maine who love travel to remote locations to produce events and weddings. Sometimes we do large festival-style weddings in the Utah desert and other times we do intimate winter weddings in Maine.

Fresh snow and a crackling fireplace are the perfect ingredients for the winter season. We thought we would bring this feeling to life through a wedding day! Once again, you are joining us in Maine for another intimate celebration. I can't wait to share this cozy cottage winter wedding at Camp O-At-Ka with you.

Winter Wedding Stationery

One of my favorites parts of this design is the pop of orange tones. With actual dried orange pieces and seasonal florals, this is a wonderful way to add some color to a winter wedding. The modern stationery looked beautiful in detail photography with these elements.

Tip from a wedding planner: want to elevate your invitations? Add in a map of your venue! Especially for more remote or large locations, your vendors and guests will appreciate this. It also makes for a really cool piece of art in your home after the wedding.

Winter Florals

The florals are where the color palette really begins to shine! This lush greenery with bright orange and pinks still has our planning team swooning. There is something so special about the mix of the white snow and natural stone at the venue with these floral designs! The bridal bouquet tied in winter elements with the addition of some dried branches.

Romantic Couple Photos

For a winter wedding in Maine, there is no need to pick between the forest and the beach! This couple posed between the winter trees and then adventured to a snowy beach. How lovely are there outfits? Velvet is a winter wedding trend we think is here to stay. With the bride's vintage inspired gown, this pair was picture ready.

Intimate Reception Table Decor

What's an easy way to add dimension to your wedding design? Don't remain too structured! We love created complimentary tablescapes that aren't exactly the same. We created two intimate tablescapes for this winter wedding in Maine.

Outdoor Tablescape

For this outdoor set up, we allowed the design to be more organic. Simple layered place settings with personalized name cards and and oversized floral garland ended up being just the right amount of decor. With this dreamy linen paired with the outdoor fireplace and forest landscape, this tablescape was complete!

Cozy Fireplace Tablescape

Do you feel like you are in a cozy cottage? The warming fireplace and stone at the indoor space inspired us! A farmhouse table, romantic candles, and elegant place settings created this design. I can't get enough of these gold stamped menus!

Boho Halloween Wedding Inspiration in Maine

I am so excited to share this boho Halloween wedding inspiration with you! Our team in Maine put together this creative-styled shoot. Themed weddings can be so fun! We wanted to show you how to incorporate the spooky season into your big day. If you are planning an October wedding, this one is for you!

Boho Halloween wedding in Maine

Table Design

A Halloween-inspired tablescape doesn't have to be dark and moody. This minimal table design used dried florals, white and gold colors, and minimal place settings. I love the mix-matched chairs. What a simple way to add more dimension to this stunning table!

These warm tones are perfect for the fall season. With raw edge stationery pieces, handwritten details, and black wax seals, we can already feel the chill in the air. Get your guests excited for your big day by using your invitations as a sneak peek into your design!

Fall Florals

Of course, we incorporated plenty of fall florals! The dried elements made these floral pieces fit seamlessly into the theme. The warm colors added a bit of romance. For our signature boho theme, every floral element was not too put together. Consider organic and asymmetrical shapes for your wedding flowers if you love these looks!

Wedding Attire & Glam

This bold, long sleeve wedding dress made such a statement! The only accessory needed was a lush bouquet. For hair and makeup, loose waves and a smoky eye balanced the look.

Cake & Bar

This one-tier, blood dripping cake somehow manages to remain incredibly elegant. With some simple dried florals and fresh figs, this cake created the ultimate decor piece. What a work of art! Pro tip from a wedding planner: pose with your wedding cake! Don't be afraid to move your cake around and capture some photos with it before guests enjoy a piece.

Finally, we decorated this mobile bar with more florals, haunted books, and vintage glassware. While grabbing a drink, this bar was also a wonderful backdrop for photos.

With the cooler months approaching, of course, there are some dreamy fall details in there as well! Ready for the best industrial boho elopement inspiration in Tennessee? Let's take a look!

The Couple

We have to take a moment to talk about the a-m-a-z-i-n-g real-life couple, Ali and Erin. They got engaged almost a year ago and we were so excited for them to model this styled shoot. This was a great way to offer a glimpse into what their wedding day might be like. They even got to try on dresses for the first time! Engaged couples, participating in styled photoshoots can be a fun and romantic way to celebrate being future newlyweds. You will have extra photos in wedding attire to look back on and may even find out more about your design likes and dislikes.

For the invitations, MEB Calligraphy created a modern neutral suite with subtle patterned details. For some more personalization and a pop of color, we added some artistic stamps. Look how stunning the flat lay photography turned out!

Wedding Attire

Aren't these gowns from White Lace and Promises meant for each other? We how seamless they are together for photos while remaining truly unique on their own. The future brides wore some cool boots with their dresses! To complete the looks, they accessorized with a dramatic full-length veil and lush bouquets. The natural glam beauty by Bangs and Blush polished the elopement looks!

Ceremony Details

Onto the ceremony details. An incredible floral piece by Thistle and Lace Florals stood as the focal point. We added a vintage rug and the design was complete. There isn't a need for complex decor with the chandeliers, natural light, and industrial brick walls at this venue!

Table Decor

As wedding planners, table decor always is one of our favorite design aspects. Here is where the vision for the day comes together through the details. First, we added a sage green runner and fall floral centerpiece. Romantic candles mix-matched bud vases filled the tablescape. For the place settings from Please Be Seated, it was all about the texture and layers. The final touch? Tassel name cards!

The Cake

Don't be afraid to try out some unexpected tones in your color palette! For this boho elopement vision, earthy and muted colors were at the forefront. However, to help lighten everything up and add some more romance, blush tones paired perfectly! This modern cake by All Mixed Up Cakes in the different pink colors was almost too pretty to eat. With the gold hoop arch from Blue Fish Event Rentals and some pampas grass, this made an excellent display!

This custom gold round bar comes with your wedding venue rental at White Star Station! With the addition of a vibrant neon sign from Knoxville Neon and the ceremony florals from earlier in the day, this was one of our favorite aspects from this elopement photoshoot.

Couple's Photos

To complete the day, Ali and Erin adventured outside of the venue with lovely photographer, Leah Bullard. The Downtown Maryville location is so charming. Right outside of the venue, there is even a butterfly mural for some unique photos!
