Autumnal Love

This past October, we had the priviledge of working with an exceptional bride to create her dream wedding. Her autumnal theme gorgeously encompassed the color and spirit of Fall! The wedding was in early October and was held at the bride and groom's residence. Their beautiful home, built by the groom and his father, sat on an expansive amount of land perfect for an outdoor wedding. The vows were exchanged on the front lawn under a hand-crafted arbor made by the father of the bride.

After the ceremony, guests were able to enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres prepared by Savor by Serendipity. We made hand-folded escort cards in varying fall colors and patterns to create a fun yet elegant escort table.

In order to accommodate a larger guest list and create a unique design, rectangular tables of 20 were used in conjunction with round tables of 8. Each table was adorned with a large whimsical floral centerpiece using curly willow branches, zinnias, mums, and baroque crystals, complete with a mason jar or bark vase.

For the long, rectangular tables, decorative logs with pillar candles and flowers filled the open spaces. Votive candles and acorns accented each table to add a richer Fall look.

These decorative elements we created for our bride made for an elegant, familial atmosphere that complimented the event's rich, natural autumn setting and was enjoyed by all of the guests! Congratulations to Lauren and Brian! It was an honor to be a part of your special day!
