That Cabin Life: Tweed and Velvet Wedding Inspiration from Maine
Fall can’t come soon enough so we break out our cozy sweaters and see more weddings with velvet bridesmaid dresses like this emerald Jenny Yoo number. Staying true to Maine’s woodsy + glamping vibes, the wedding inspiration today calls for earthy tones, warm textures, and apple cider aplenty. Emily Elizabeth Events has transported us in this woodsy editorial captured by Jamie Mercurio at Tops’l Farm.
From Emily Elizabeth Events: For this fall editorial we wanted a salt of the earth, woodsy vibe that complemented both Tops’l Farm and Maine in general. Tops’l Farm has a beautiful farmhouse as well as safari tents and A-frame cabins. We chose to feature both the farmhouse and an A-frame cabin for our love story. Warm browns and greens keep it earthy and the leather, velvet, sheepskin, and wood elements play up the moody romance. The invitations are simple, with abstract floral drawings. The aesthetic is mature and isn’t trying too hard to be perfect. The place settings incorporate pears as well as bunches of herbs tied with little bits of leather cord, paired with vellum menus. We used simple white napkins and plates along with matte finish silver flatware. Green goblets and tin cups are the finishing touches.
Ok, but for real, this wedding dress from Jenny Yoo is a stunner!
Emily Elizabeth Events created the coziest outdoor wedding ceremony, and suddenly we’re ready to curl up in a blanket and sip hot cocoa again.
Oh hello, gorgeous! Don’t mind if we do. We are in love with this bountiful and textured bridal bouquet from Marigold Floral.
From Emily Elizabeth Events: We had fun mixing up a few rosemary bourbon cocktails with a syrup that we made over the stove while munching on popcorn. A chocolate s’ mores cake and toasted marshmallow cake are campfire-inspired without being kitschy. We also did up some apple crumble in mini cast iron pans for the tablescape. Meanwhile, the rainy day and the dried elements in the floral made for the perfect, cozy backdrop. Her bouquet is tied with a caramel brown ribbon, perfect against the emerald green of her velvet dress, and his handsome wool suit is just right for the season and occasion.
We think the conversation went something like this:
“Honey, there’s cake outside! No, wait. There are TWO cakes outside.”
“You’ve never been sexier than this moment. Hold my hand, I need a moment”
These campfire inspired cakes from Nothing Bakes Like a Parrott are more than we could ever dream of. So incredibly cozy and delicious.
We are still swooning over this gorgeous Maine wedding and to recover we love a good sunrise with our coffee and favorite person. So what if you have a sunrise wedding?
