If I had to pick one word to describe the Fall season it would be ‘comfort’. With its vibrant landscape coupled with cool crisp air, by its sheer nature Fall offers up the invitation to cozy up with a blanket and enjoy the view. It’s warm in its essence, and naturally beautiful. It encourages us to slow down and enjoy our surroundings, take the time to appreciate all the little things. With carefree summer days a thing of the past, Fall grounds us in the most soothing and gentle kind of way. It inspires endless heartwarming creative possibilities and it makes me think there may be no lovelier way to think of love than in the context of Fall. So grab a blanket, your beloved, and enjoy the latest installment in the Inspired by Color series, “Warm My Heart”.
When we received Erin + Mike’s wedding, not only were we blown away by the photos (all of which are incredible!), but we were also impacted by the story of their big day. Originally the pair had planned an amazing outdoor ceremony at their favorite New Jersey lake, but with their wedding date in October of this past year, Hurricane Sandy had other plans! With evacuation looming overhead and Mother Nature’s special brand of havoc swirling ever closer, it would be enough to dishearten any couple! But Erin + Mike’s love conquered it all. From their first look and beyond, it’s clear that love is the only thing on both of their minds. And, I’m sure it’s going to be the only thing on your mind too when you see their beautiful autumn wedding with pops of colors, delicate fall leaves and a pair of some of the most amazing wedding shoes ever! Enjoy and congratulations to Erin + Mike – we are so happy to be able to share your inspiring day!
There are always weddings that center around the holidays and Halloween is no exception. There will be weddings with pumpkins and zombies, skeletons and vampires — but what if you want a slightly more subtle tribute to the day?
All you really have to do is take it one step beyond vintage and venture into the ‘neglected’ era.
Set the stage for something spooky, and let your guests’ imaginations do the rest.
Even though today felt like the first real day of Winter, what with the world suddenly becoming covered in a glistening and slightly damp layer of white; I’ve decided I’m not quite ready to let go of Autumn. As such I have done a little digging and come up with a collection of photographs that will hopefully help to inspire you.
Fall is here and with it the opportunity to host a wedding with all the beauty and vibrant colours that nature puts on display at this time of year. I couldn’t resist the chance to feature this wedding for a little autumn-inspiration!
Aside from the obvious planning and love (just one look at the Groom’s expression when he sees Nicolette walking down the aisle speaks volumes), there are a few details which must be mentioned.
The “Thank You” photo is a great alternative to thank you cards; not only is it so much more personal but it is a fabulous reminder of the wedding. They also included notebooks with the table numbers on them for the guests to fill out. The table number coincides with the Anniversary the couple will open them on, an idea similar to our Anniversary Note Box!
