Getting Married in the Woods - Color Considerations

Posted in Wedding Blog, Wedding in the Woods on Mar 07, 2021

Like any other venue, our setting has great influence on the colors, style, and design of your wedding. However, being set square in the middle of the woods, the thing that isn’t terribly obvious is how much the forest changes. I don’t mean the drastic change from Summer to Fall, Fall to Winter and Winter to Spring. Summer green changes through the season. Winter isn’t steadily brown-gray-neutral, either.

It’s Painted White!

Posted in Wedding Blog on Mar 01, 2019

For several months… ok, a year… maybe more, I’ve wanted to paint the barn white inside. To me, the dark rustic-ness didn’t fit the Cottage or feel seamless with it. The Cottage is bright and happy inside, and a little trendy. The red oak in the barn didn’t feel that way. We had the trendy lighting (which is easier to see now, and I loooooove that) but it didn’t jump out well against the natural walls. Now I feel like all of our black hardware makes a statement, and the brick in our floors is more apparent as well. Brick will be in a few places throughout the venue as we keep adding. It add...

Our Fave Wedding Trends

Posted in Wedding Blog on Dec 14, 2018

Making the jump from interior design to loving all kinds of wedding design has been a pretty short hop-skip over. We’re always keeping an eye on the trends to see what the latest is, and to dream up our latest take on all the styles. Pampass Grass Green Wedding Shoes Long the semi-hated yard staple, these giant puffs of fluff have breathed hot new life into floral installations. We’ve found images of them flowing down the aisle, bursting in beautiful wedding bouquets, and adding billowy greatness to the wedding arbor. We love it all.

Oakleaf Cottage Wedding Featured in Junebug Weddings!

Posted in Wedding Blog on Apr 10, 2018

We have to tell you about an amazing couple — more than once we have gushed at how incredible it was that they had hiked to the bottom of Cloudland Canyon State Park for those waterfall photos … without breaking a sweat, messing up makeup, or even slightly staining that beautiful dress. They came out looking as fresh and amazing as when they left! But what we haven’t said much of is this — when Rachel and Josh first came to see our barn, it looked like this: No concrete. No walls. No deck. There may not have even been rocks in the section of driveway out to the barn, meaning they had to wal...

Styled Shoot with our New Farm Tables!

Posted in Wedding Blog on Mar 22, 2018

We are soooo excited to say this: we built farm tables for our barn! And even more exciting, they are stepping out in style thanks to a photoshoot pulled together by Molly of Molly Nicole Details, flowers by Christy of MayFlowers, and photographed by adventure and elopement photographer Alyssa Smithley. Molly brought in chairs from Luma Designs to complement the aged gray tones of our tables, and created the beautiful setting. We adore her — she has such an eye for pulling together the unusual — we are in love with the copper flatware! Word among the Chattanooga wedding vendors has it that ...

Why You Need a Day of Wedding Coordinator

Posted in Wedding Blog on Mar 01, 2018

Back in January, Dave and I had an idea that it would be nice to do more of an “introduction” to the vendors on our preferred vendor list so our engaged couples could get a better sense of who these folks are and why they are on our list. For this initial Wedding Blog post, we’re talking to Jessica, of Jessica Ann Wedding Co.   Jessica is a Day of Wedding Coordinator (DOC) who moved to the Chattanooga area in 2015 and bravely but excitedly stepped out into this new world that is the South. You started offering DOC services in California, where you used to live. Can you tell us what drew you i...
