You probably hear us talking about Under Canvas weddings all the time on Instagram BUT we’ve never really blogged about them. Well today is the day! We’re giving you a glimpse inside what it’s like to have a wedding at Under Canvas Moab. Ready to get blown away with this wedding inspiration? Keep reading!
Let’s start by saying that Becca and Sander spent a year and a half planning this wedding all while Becca was attending NYU for Interior Design. This venue is spectacular in itself but in order to produce a 4-day wedding for 160 guests, it takes an experience wedding planning team (oh hi!) and a lot of coffee!
Wedding planner tip: If you are planning your own multi-day wedding, we can still help you out even if we aren’t there with you. Our lead planners have created a step by step guide to help you create your perfect wedding timeline! We’ve added “pro tips” and given you a real example of what a wedding timeline should look like.
After guests checked into their gorgeous accommodations, we opened up the dining area and had long wooden tables decorated with succulents in hand painted pots. The cute mini airstream trailer bar was open for business and a local folk/bluegrass band, Slim Pickin’s band was playing on the stage.
Every single night we experienced an incredible sunset. The soon-to-be newlyweds took full advantage and headed out for romantic and fun photos each night. Guests were kept busy with lot’s of delicious food, drinks, music and games!
And after two full days of celebrating Becca and Sander in the desert came the actually wedding day. We decided to have this day on a Sunday since the following Monday was a holiday. Might as well take full advantage of having all your guests in one place for a long weekend!
The guys seemed to have a really great time getting ready in their tents. They even had a barrel of whiskey!
The ceremony took place on giant flat rock formations (sorry I don’t have a scientific name for these!) with the most spectacular view of the Moab desert. We were right next to Arches National Park, yet still far away enough from tourists to enjoy the ceremony with friends and family only.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Olson! As they newlyweds rode away into the sunset on the Under Canvas golf cart, guests headed to the reception area for appetizers, music and booze!
We may or may not have flown their wedding cake in from New York. Spoiler alert: we did.
Let me tell you, this crowd loved to party! The wedding reception and dancing went way into the wee hours of the morning but wrapped up what was an incredible weekend!
