When you think of fall weddings in New England you're likely thinking of golden sunlight, gently falling leaves, and a gorgeous multi-colored backdrop.
While New England has plenty to offer in the way of the standard autumnal delights we are drawn to the nontraditional. In the spirit of our love for nontraditional wedding venues, we're beyond excited to share one of the most unique fall wedding ideas we've seen to date: a wedding at a cranberry bog.
Featuring Mayflower Venues', The Barn on Benson’s Pond, a stunning south shore Massachusetts wedding venue that is the perfect fit for creative couples ready to make this stunning property their own for one magical weekend. Get inspired and read on for some cranberry bog themed fall wedding ideas.
Celebrate the bounty of the season with cranberry forward beverages
Whether you're going to offer a signature cocktail, a handcrafted mocktail, or both, the subtle tartness of cranberry juice will add a thoughtful regional touch to your beverage selections. A fall wedding idea that's also delicious? Sign us up.
Embrace fall light for gorgeous wedding photos
You don't have to be a photographer to recognize how flattering autumn sunlight is. Whether your wedding photo shoot is in direct late afternoon lighting or during a gently filtered overcast day, your photos will be incredible. The autumn sun is gentle enough to warm your guests with its glow but not strong enough to cast harsh shadows during your photo shoot.
Feature an unconventional fall wedding color palette
There's more to fall than red, yellow, and orange. Don't feel boxed in by expectations of what a fall wedding should look like and get excited about what your fall wedding could look like.
Imagine the possibilities and draw from your venue's environment for inspiration. The Barn on Benson’s Pond has beautifully weathered cedar shingles that complemented a variety of details in the photos below. Paired with a subtle gold and periwinkle blue, the result is unexpected and stunning.
