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!

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!

Stationery

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.

NEW Chattanooga Wedding Venue: Common House

After learning about this cool new venue in Chattanooga, Common House, I (Gabby) decided to schedule a visit! I met up with Summer from Collection Images to bring you along on a virtual tour. Seriously, if you are thinking about a Tennessee wedding, you're going to want to take a look at this space. I already have this location in mind for a few of our local couples!

Common House Chattanooga officially opened in 2021 as a gathering, co-working, and event space. Plus, you can even dine at their delicious onsite restaurant. Fun fact: the building began as a YMCA so there are some impressive industrial features. So, let's take a virtual tour of what the venue has to offer!

Ruby Hall

The Ruby Hall stands as the main event space at Common House. Whether you are hosting 20 or 300 guests, this open space is so versatile. I love the natural light paired with the historical architecture of the building. What a truly unique experience! High ceilings fitted with elaborate chandeliers overlook this venue space. Who's ready for a ceremony/reception here?

Pennybacker Room

Now to the Pennybacker Room. If you are looking for something a bit more intimate and romantic, this is the space to be! Create your ceremony moment here in front of the fireplace and dramatic windows. Common House says the Pennybacker Room also is ideal for, "a post-wedding brunch, corporate off-sites, bridal showers, private dining, and cocktail parties". By day the venue area serves as a comfortable co-working space.

Outdoor Events & Garden

There are outside venue options also! The Garden and patio look out into the city of Chattanooga while you and your guests celebrate under the string lights. This space is ready for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

Bar & Dining

Since Common House has onsite dining and a bar, this is a perk for your wedding! Common House says, "in-house catering, Sommelier-curated wines, full bar services, and a professional waitstaff" is available. This takes the pressure off of sourcing separate vendors for these planning aspects. Once booking your wedding, you can check up to four vendors off of your list! Love the venue's decor or furniture? They also offer a variety of modern pieces for your event.

Staying at Common House

You can even stay onsite for your wedding in the bridal suite and guests rooms! No traveling to your wedding venue on the day of necessary with the Common House. While you are enjoying your stay, don't forget to take a swim at the pool! The pool is an Instagram-worthy space that nods to the original YMCA building.

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.

We love when couples make their wedding truly personal like incorporating their culture into the day. Ready for all of the details from this Indian Fusion wedding at Under Canvas Zion? Keep Reading!

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 Best Yellow Themed Spring Wedding

We don't know about you, but the color yellow automatically puts a smile on our faces. This is such a versatile color to inspire the design for any wedding. Today we are sharing an indoor spring wedding with pops of bright yellow. We love the way the season was incorporated into the details of this day. Kristof & Becca are such a joyful color so we wanted to create a wedding aesthetic to match! Keep reading to gather inspiration from this yellow-themed spring wedding.

Invitations & Florals

The invitation suite was kept super modern with minimal pops of yellow. The bright tone that the couple chose for the day is so refreshing without being overpowering.

For the bridal bouquet, Becca wanted to incorporate plenty of the yellow color. The addition of different texture florals added dimension to her beautiful bouquet. Then she opted for more romantic pastel tones including blush, lavender, and peach. Of course, no bouquet is complete without some fresh greenery!

The Ceremony

At Smoky Hollow Studio, we allow the industrial venue to shine. A modern wedding arch decorated with organic spring florals was the perfect amount of decor. The contrast of the natural design with the urban style venue was so stunning.

Venue Details

How cool is this guest 'books' idea! Instead of having one traditional guest book, the couple added in a bit more personalization. They chose their favorite books that hold sentimental value in their relationship for guests to sign. That way, when they pick up any of the books in the future they can be reminded of their special day.

For the venue decor, a simple string art sign greeted guests to the day. After the ceremony, we transformed the wedding arch to a creative backdrop. Check out that marquee light sign!

Bride & Groom Photos

Kristof and Becca snuck away for bride and groom photos while guests mingled and enjoyed a cocktail hour. They got to adventure through the local city, capturing photos with different backdrops. Becca got to show off her floor length tulle veil. The bride and groom featured their favorite yellow color with their accessories.

Table Decor

A simple way to transform any space is by adding in an abundance of fresh floral arrangements and greenery. Cascading garlands and hanging floral features brought this design together. We kept the place settings simple with a muted linen, modern black flatware, and a vintage style plate. For a bit more ambiance, we added romantic gold votives.

Colorful Spring Wedding at Smoky Hollow Studios

Spring is here! We can't help but reminisce on all of our favorite weddings of the season. I mean, the lush florals and colorful palettes are so refreshing. Today we are heading back to Smoky Hollow Studios (one of our top venues!) for a vintage-inspired spring wedding day. Let's dive in!

Details & Getting Ready

Lauren and CJ enjoyed time getting ready for the day with their bridesmaids and groomsmen. This is often the time your photographer will capture detail photos so be sure to bring along a copy of your stationary on wedding day! The pop of pink, calming sea foam green, and navy blue colors were featured throughout every detail. From the watercolor invitation to bow ties, this wedding was full of seasonal colors! Not to mention, the spring florals were absolutely breathtaking with a mix of traditional and wildflowers.

First Look

After they had their spring wedding outfits on, the future bride and groom shared a first look before the ceremony. This was such an incredibly sweet moment that allowed the couple to enjoy time together before guests arrived.

Wedding Party

After a traditional Catholic ceremony, the bride and groom and their wedding party captured photography. This is often some of the best memories shared between the newlyweds and their bridesmaids and groomsmen. The alternating pastel colors with neutral tones were so stunning against the industrial backdrop.

Reception

During the ceremony, part of our wedding team ventured to Smoky Hollow Studios to decorate. Vintage elements such as lace runners, combined with modern details like minimal bud vases created the spring wedding vision. Delicate florals were placed at each family-style table to brighten up the indoor space. The natural wooden tables were so stunning on their own, that we kept the decor to a minimum.

Bride and Groom Photos

While guests enjoyed cocktail hour and listened to live string music, Lauren and CJ took some more couple photos. They both got to show off their spring wedding outfits and get creative with photography. We can't get enough of all the various backdrops in each image!

Unique 2021 Wedding Trends

Happy new year! The shift that the wedding industry has experienced this past year has resulted in a few new trends that are here to stay for a while.

Backyard Weddings

With the uncertainty that comes along with planning a wedding currently, we are seeing more and more couples stay local. A backyard wedding at your own home or even a local Airbnb can alleviate a ton of stress. You can celebrate with your closest family and friends without missing out on many traditional aspects of a wedding. There is so much room to get creative with decor and you can still wear the wedding outfit of your dreams! Check out our tips for planning the ultimate backyard wedding.

One Tier Wedding Cakes

A smaller guest list means less cake! If you are eloping or choosing an intimate wedding, you can still feature a cake within your design! Work with your local bakery to create a unique one tier cake that is almost too pretty to eat. Even if you are hosting a larger event in 2021 and want a small cake just for you and your future spouse to capture photos will, this option is for you.

Adventurous Elopements

This trend might be our favorite! In the new year, many couples are choosing an adventurous elopement. We recommend considering a national park for this trend! There are so many places to explore. You can select a desert elopement at a place like Joshua Tree National park, escape to the beach, or even bring your ceremony to the woods in the Smoky Mountains. Be sure to bring along our elopement must-haves for your special day!

Alternative Wedding Outfits

This year is all about breaking away from tradition. Wear what you want on your wedding day! Whether that means choosing matching outfits or including fun accessories like a faux fur jacket, there are endless options. If you are still including a veil within your wedding day look, be sure to check out our favorite wedding veils!

How to Plan the Ultimate Backyard Wedding

If you and your future spouse want to keep your special day intimate and low-key, a backyard wedding is the way to go! Enjoy all of the romance of a traditional wedding day without the need to travel. With the challenges of last year, many couples are opting for a smaller celebration. A backyard wedding still allows you to celebrate with friends and family in style. This is also a budget-friendly option! There are so many considerations and options to choose from even with an intimate event. We are sharing what you need to know to plan the ultimate backyard wedding!

This blog post contains affiliate links. If you click on one of them and make a purchase, I'll receive a commission at no additional cost to you!

Narrow Down Your Guest List

A backyard wedding is for an intimate celebration! Typically, this means one location as well for the entire event. So, you will want to spend time narrowing down your guest list. We recommend inviting 5-25 guests depending upon the space. That way you will have plenty of room to walk down the aisle and create room for a dance floor during the reception!

Choose the Right Decor

Since you will be using one area for the entire event, it is important to choose versatile decor. Choose your favorite florals or lanterns that can easily be moved for the next portion of the day. We love repurposing ceremony decor for the reception! Check out our wedding day must-haves as you create your vision board.

Follow a Timeline

While a backyard wedding is definitely more relaxed with programming, it is still a good idea to follow a general timeline. That way you will be sure to include structured time for aspects of the day that are important to you. Family dances, cake cutting, and the bouquet toss will not be forgotten as you celebrate your big day! We always advise adding extra time for photography as well. You and your future spouse may want to explore the local city or parks for your couple photos.

Make it Personal

This intimate wedding option is a great opportunity to include personal aspects into the day! You may choose to celebrate at a family member's home or decorate with photos of you and your partner. Maybe you ask each guest to bring their favorite dessert and written recipe as a wedding gift! You could also invest in personalized wedding favors for your guests to remember the day. Some of our couples have included sentimental heirlooms or attire into their wedding day style. There are endless options to choose from.
