Autumn Weddings

Fall has always been my favorite season - I love the weather, the colors, the idea of a fresh start (I guess that's from goign to school for way too long!). Yesterday's wedding perfectly captured the idea of an early fall day, without the obvious "maple leaf in the bouquet" type of thing.

Our bride Amy loved the idea of warm color and texture, so imagine our delight when we found these fabulous viburnum berries! (I almost wanted to eat them, they were so pretty!) I love using dahlias at this time of year too, the colors are insanely saturated, and almost luminescent when they hit the sunlight. The bridesmaid bouquets were simple with gorgeous colors, yet textured, and I had fun adding in a modern twist like the pleated laurel leaves. Hurrah for warm fall days, outdoor weddings that don't get rained on and glorious color.
