Jessica and James were married at Lichfield Ponds in Tocerville, Utah on March 9. The bride wore a tea-length wedding dress, accessorized with a lace long-sleeved bolero and “something blue” peep-toe pumps, while the groom wore a casual tan suit and blue button-up shirt, accessorized with flip flops. Guests were greeted with moonshine cherry limeades from the “sand bar” and asked to take a parasol umbrellas before they took their seats at the ceremony. Even programs doubled as fans! The escort card display featured vintage shutters, books, and a pinwheel and cafe lights backdrop, and reception tables were decorated with driftwood, coral, and starfishes. As a special thank you (and in lieu of a cake), slices of pie were wrapped to-go as favors. Yum!
Crisp air, changing foliage, pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks — the list of reasons why we love Fall is almost as long as the season itself. But, in the interest of saving time, we’ll get right down to our favorite part: the weddings. Certain details just work best between September and November, and these are the ones we love most.

Our fourth favorite summer color scheme — purple and orange! This inspiration board is fit for an eclectic bride who wants a tropical destination wedding. Walk down the aisle on “island time” with a lisianthus, ranunculus, and hypericum berries bouquet and stand next to your bridesmaids wearing flowing v-neck dresses. Enjoy a lavender martini in your lounge area or take a break from dancing to the authentic steel drum music and cozy up next to your man. Give each guest a wish lantern at the end of the night to send off in the sky. With so many warm wishes from your family and friends overhead, you will know love is in the air. Unforgettable.
Here are four reception centerpiece ideas from our Pinterest board that we love, and our followers can’t seem to get enough of since they’re the highest repinned ones. Notice how each arrangement has a different size, shape and texture. Consider using an array of flowers filled in mason jars, modern cylindrical vases or colored vases for your centerpieces. Tip: Let each table stand out. Work with your florist or floral designer to come up with three or four different arrangements. For more centerpiece inspiration, check out our Pinterest board and discover centerpieces that fit your style and theme.
Fall boutonnieres are a chock-full of charming, warm colors. Dress your groom with a floral boutonniere that’s red, orange, mustard yellow, deep purple or brown to suit the season. If your groom doesn’t prefer florals, consider using small pine cones, succulents, wheat, curly willows or even red berries. Any of these combinations will stand out against a black, gray or tan suit on the big day. Tip: Don’t forget to make sure that your groom’s boutonniere matches your bridal bouquet!
