5 Things We Love from this Fall Wedding

1. The Season

Fall is a fantastic season for a rustic wedding. A forest blanketed in yellow leaves is a stunning backdrop for bridal photos this time of year and the temperature is just right for an indoor or outdoor affair.

2. The Farm Setting

A nearby farm is a great spot for outdoor wedding photos. Posing with horses can be tricky, but with a little patience you’re sure to get some special shots. For a pop of color, line up against a great red barn with your wedding party (and maybe even a horse too!).

3. The Real Wood Details

A personalized chalkboard welcome sign is a great way to greet guests as they arrive and give them all the details of the day. Lace and glitter details like runners and napkin wraps add elegance, while real wood slices add height to centerpieces and create a rustic feel. Use Mason Jars with candles to light your tables and set each place with a wood slice charger too.

4. Chic Flower Girls

Flower girls dressed in black lace dresses are an unexpected, yet elegant surprise! We love the change from traditional white.

5. Dessert to Go!

Take a close look at the cake and you’ll see that it’s not cake at all! This unique centerpiece is just for show and cake in mason jars is ready for guests to take to go. What a great idea for a sweet send off after the big day!
