Laid Back Moab Wedding at Under Canvas

When I say that Fall 2018 was busy, I really mean it. That's why I am just now getting around to posting about one of our Moab weddings during that time! It was at the beginning of the year that Gabby asked me (Jessica) to hop on her team and help with some events and office things. I agreed and then was quickly introduced to Alyse, a future 'Cause We Can Events bride!

Alyse & Jake took their very first trip, as a couple, to Moab years before their engagement. With that idea in mind, they decided to host their "End of Summer Camp" themed wedding at Under Canvas Moab.

CREATING THE INVITE & SETTING THE MOOD

With most guests coming from Alaska, it was important to the couple that their guests knew what it would take to get to Moab and how to make the most out of their trip. Alyse worked with a friend to design an invitation they would go on to create themselves! In the blink of an eye a website, save the date and super cool invitations were born. If you need assistance creating your invite design, we recommend Basic Invite. PRO TIP: We always recommend you create a website for a destination wedding. It’s the easiest way to get information to all of your guests at once! TIP FROM THE BRIDE: Price out invitation ideas with how much postage will cost!

WELCOME DINNER

As guests arrived on Friday afternoon, they were greeted by the Under Canvas team and checked into their luxury tents. PRO TIP: provide gift bags when your guests arrive to make them feel extra special! That evening Alyse & Jake hosted a welcome dinner equipped with "Tent Talks", their version of Ted Talks. They invited a couple key family members and friends to stand by the fire and share a story with all of the guests. This by far was one of the most memorable moments of any 2018 wedding we did! It's a pretty special and rare moment when you can make a gathering of 100 guests feel intimate. After "Tent Talks", everyone hit the outdoor firepit for s’mores and live music all provided by Under Canvas. It was the perfect start to summer camp.

GETTING READY

The next day, our team worked closely with a core group of friends to switch up the decor and setup the platform for the reception. All Good Super Fresh had their cute trailer ready to go so they could serve breakfast to the guests! During our setup, Alyse got ready with friends at the Desert Day Spa while Jake hung out with his bike and drone close by.

PARTY TIME
Catering in Moab can be tricky if you have a specific budget and idea in mind, not to mention power but we will save that for another blog post. We talked to a local restaurant, Miguel's Baja Grill, as we were looking for a fajita station to serve to the guests! For their first time catering a wedding, they really knocked it out of the park for us. After dinner, the night continued with a lot of dancing and good times for all.

Alyse & Jake’s wedding was a special one for so many reasons and we could not have done it without the amazing vendor team we had in place. Not to mention, the great friends & family that came along for the adventure.

Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise
so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
Any help would be enormously appreciated!
