Fall weddings are among my favorites. The colors are so vibrant and crisp. In the South, the weather tends t to cooperate for these fall weddings, because it is normally drier than in the summer, so there’s less chance of rain.
There are so many flower choices for an October wedding. The majority of summer flowers are in season, along with some fun, new ones. Sunflowers, dahlias, seed pods of all kinds, berries, and purple foliage add to the colorful displays. Incorporating pumpkins and colored leaves add to the decor. The use of natural, plant materials fit in well with this theme.
Featured in the slide show below is a wedding that we did at The General Morgan Inn, in Greenville, Tennessee. The inn is an historic landmark hotel.
It was October, 2008, and the day was perfect! The temperature was comfortable, and there was a gentle breeze. The ceremony took place on the rooftop of the hotel. The fall-colored leaves on the trees made a spectacular backdrop. The church and building in this small, rural town added to the ambience, of an intimate ceremony.
Marcy and Ro were a very sweet couple. I thoroughly enjoyed working with them and Marcy’s parents. The end result was fabulous!
