My fall wedding story began when I decided to take a run and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature in her finest season. My husband to be and I met in the park during a jog, it was a beautiful fall day, the autumn colors were spectacular. I had stopped in the middle of the jogging path to look at a particularly beautiful vibrant red tree when someone bumped into me, little did I know that this man would turn out to be the love of my life.
It was truly love at first sight, we walked together and the conversation flowed as simply as the leaves floating down from the trees. We spent the entire morning walking through the park and enjoying the dazzling colors of the leaves that only fall brings to us. As time went on, and we became engaged, it was easy for us to choose when we wanted our wedding to take place, since our first encounter took place in such a beautiful autumn setting we agreed to have a fall wedding.
Planning our wedding was easy when we selected a fall wedding theme, the magnificent colors of the leaves we experienced the day we met, became the shades we would use for our fall wedding ideas. Friends were filled with fall wedding stories of their own, and we were able to capture some wonderful fall wedding ideas from them.
The first thing to do on our list was to find a spot for our fall wedding, we wanted a place that would have a glorious autumn setting to remind us of the park where we first met.
We found a captivating inn with the most magnificent backdrop of colorful trees, we were able to have the ceremony outside, and the reception inside a hall filled with windows so our guests could enjoy the splendor of the autumn season.
We entwined our fall wedding ideas into every part of our autumn wedding, from the colors of the bridesmaids dresses to the fall wedding favors we centered everything around our fall wedding theme. The bridesmaids looked stunning in their burgundy dresses, and the groomsmen wore grey tuxedos with burgundy shirts and matching boutonnière.
Our fall wedding favors highlighted the symbols reminiscent of Autumn, and harvest time. We thanked our guests with wonderfully fall colored bookmarks and, Autumn leaf embellished candle holders. We decorated the tables with grapes and used bottles of wine from the area wrapped with fall colored ribbons as another one of the fall wedding favors. Orange, red, and burgundy mums decorated the tables, and surrounded the warm glow of the fireplace. We had our fall wedding cake decorated with vivid colored icing leaves, and topped with a sculpted maple leaf on a heart.
Our fall wedding story is one that our friends and family will remember whenever they use their fall themed wedding favors, and when Mother nature bestows her glorious fall palate of color on us.
