It might be the dog days of summer, but we are already looking forward to fall wedding season. The foliage turns from lush greens to rich golds, fiery reds, and burnt oranges…just talking about it makes us ache for autumn! Sasha and Jimmy selected a local farm as their venue and celebrated the bounty of harvest with every aspect of their decor. A gentle mist hovered over the grounds as they said ‘I do’. Read on to see how they tied in silky shawls, rosy ripe pears, gorgeous amber florals, and rustic birch accents.
The bride wore an intricate lace gown with a gentle trumpet silhouette and illusion neckline. Her classic chignon hair style, pearl drop earrings, and natural make up tied together the romantic ensemble. For her bouquet, Sasha selected creamy peach hued roses and hypericum berries. Clusters of fluffy green viburnum gave the arrangement an added boost of volume.
When dressing their attendents, Sasha and Jimmy selected soft grey suits for the groomsmen and sage chiffon dresses for the bridesmaids. Each held miniature versions of the bridal bouquet and had their shoulders wrapped in raw-edge shawls. They selected their own earrings and necklaces to accent the outfit. Choices ranged from strands of pears to bohemian turquoise drops. This touch, along with the groomsmen’s mismatched ties, created a wonderful sense of relaxed comfort.
Willowy branches graced the top of ceremony programs as guests found their seats on wooden benches. Simple arrangements of feathery ferns and baby’s breath lined the aisle and bordered the altar. A sliding wood door served as the backdrop in the industrial barn. Once vows were complete, the wedding party took a few moments to frolic in the rain. Is there anything cuter than flower girls in tulle skirts?
At the reception, sliced birch logs served as place card holders and table numbers. Each seat had a single perfectly ripe pear resting on its plate. Votive candles and whitewashed lanterns added delicate lighting to the rosy centerpieces. Their three-tiered buttercream cake was decorated with swaths of organic flowers, providing a finishing touch to the decor. As the evening came to a close, the happy couple danced the night away beneath string light festooned rafters
