From mid-September to late October, leaves transform their summer shades of green into the reds, oranges, and yellows that signify autumn’s return all over the country. The vibrant backdrops are perfect for any fall wedding. Choose a color scheme that will not only complement your venue but also Mother’s Nature scenery. Take a look at how these real couples pulled it off:

Q&A with the Bride
What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?
The venue felt incredibly warm and intimate. We live out of state, but wanted to have our wedding in Georgia so that my grandparents would be able to attend. When we visited the location, the wood, brick, and lighting gave it a romantic and intimate feel, which is what I was looking for. Although Monroe is a bit out of the way in what was already a “destination wedding”, we felt the venue was worth it. We got a lot of feedback from guests that the venue, combined with the personal touches and toasts of the wedding, all lent an intimate and warm atmosphere, where guests truly felt they held a special part of our lives.
Which details from your wedding were your favorites?
Emily from Stella Harper Events took on a lot of the design elements. I love the DIY feel, but had none of the resources of talent, time, or proximity to the locale, so Emily was a lifesaver. She created an adorable banner that hung across the mantlepiece on which family photographs, mostly from weddings, were displayed. She made an identical, tiny banner for our wedding cake, all using unique fabrics that fit our wedding colors. She also found different vintage containers that also fit in our color scheme, and worked with Stems Atlanta to create unique, adorable flower centerpieces with them. Finally, I really loved that my bridesmaids all wore different blue dresses. It’s cheesy, but they were all different but beautiful, just like them.
Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.
