One of the biggest wedding decisions is choosing what season to tie the knot. Some brides love the summer sun. While others dream of a winter wonderland. Amanda and Josh picked the peak of fall for their Big Day. Instead of a spring garden, they got married in a beautiful mansion. The colorful foliage provided a elegant backdrop for outdoor photos, adding the perfect autumnal touch. Read on to see all of the stunning details from this classically styled celebration.
Earlier that day, the bride prepared herself for the ceremony in a private drawing room. Her romantic curly hairstyle complemented the exquisitely beaded gown, coupled with a delicate satin-edged veil. Cleverly, the photographer took advantage of the mansion’s many nooks and crannies to capture these intimate moments.
The five bridesmaids wore matching violet gowns, designed with swaths of figure-flattering pleats. Each woman had unique hair style, ranging from messy buns to sleek ponytails. Their orange calla lily and fuchsia dahlia bouquets matched Amanda’s flawlessly. Of course, the flower girl held a tiny basket full of mums!
Josh opted for a timeless charcoal gray tuxedo, topped off by a charming bow tie. Later, they took a moment to walk through the fallen leaves on their way to the venue. As friends and family looked on, the happy couple said their vows in front of a gorgeous fire place. Purple uplighting and twinkling branches gave just a hint of drama to the ceremony space.
For the next part of the celebration, guests picked up miniature candle place cards that doubled as favors. The drawing room converted to a dining room, decorated with golden chivari chairs and lovely textured linens. A small dance floor kept the reception intimate – just the right size for Amanda and Josh’s first dance.
