Autumnal Moody | New England Forest Wedding 

J+J Portland Maine Wedding_Buena Lane Photography_102718_ER_434.jpg

Jaya and Jon lived in LA and New York before finding their way to Portland, Maine, and with family and friends coming from all over the county, they wanted their wedding to show off the food and scenery of the region. Jaya embraced their Halloween-weekend date by going for autumnal moody decor, much of which she crafted herself.

They loved the colorful leaves of the forest sanctuary behind the Barn on Walnut Hill, but when rain moved the event inside, their ceremony turned warm and cozy with inviting candlelit surrounding the guests and illuminating the rich crimsons, golds, and black velvet decorating the barn.

Behind the barn, Harvest Moon catering worked tirelessly in the rain to wood-fire fresh beets, foraged mushrooms, and winter squash for a beautiful farm to table meal.

Jon and Jaya also enlisted the talents of their friends and family to make the night even more special and personal. The event included musical performances by friends during the ceremony, a witty and heartfelt toast from Jaya’s sister (who also designed the invitations!) and her cousins even performed an impromptu song once the dance floor opened!
