The Barn at Cage Stables

Rustic Elegance

June, Where did you go?

June was once the pinocle of Wedding Season, but now September and October have taken the reins. With their rich earthy tones, warm comfort food and a chill in the air, more people flock to the Fall for their big day.

Maybe it’s just me, but I still think June has something special to offer. The air still carries a small chill from Spring, so evenings aren’t too warm. The flowers have wonderful pinks and blues to add a pop of color. A nice breeze comes rolling off the water continuously until mid-July. The grass is still lush from the Spring rains and gives a bright green backdrop to any outdoor event. The bugs are still figuring out its warm enough to come out and don’t quite become bothersome until July. Unfortunately for outdoor weddings, rain is always a concern, but June is usually out of the Spring rain and into drought season.

I have absolutely nothing against Fall, but June has quite a bit to offer too. If you’re struggling to find space for a September / October event, maybe consider June again – it might surprise you.

The pendulum of wedding season trends will continue to swing, but I think my heart will always be set on June.


Very Rustic to White Linen Table Cloths

The barn is clearly rustic, which can deter clients who’s event dreams include white linen, however the barn would compliment such dreams quite well if one is open minded.

The barn’s character is not overwhelming, allowing whatever decorations chosen to shine and demand the focus. The warm lighting and subtle decorations that simply serve as a taking off point for an event, allow for the white linen to be a crisp focal point without much effort at all.
