Where all my fall 2016 brides and grooms at? Believe me when I say that you’re going to want to steal ideas from today’s featured wedding. Ben and Marie were married on a sunny September day surrounded by sunflowers, burgundy lace, and and a little white church. In true Southern belle style, Marie wore family heirloom jewelry and her mother’s veil, and the couple designed their reception to feel like a family reunion. Of course, they served up Eastern North Carolina-style barbecue and all the fixins. It was autumn wedding perfection! Enjoy these gorgeous photos, courtesy of DiPrima Photography.
It is no secret to those who know me that fall is my least favorite season. Yep, I said it. All of you scarf-wearing, cool weather-loving, pumpkin spice latte-drinking belles and beaus can just go ahead and be horrified. I recently began thinking about why it is exactly that I feel grudgingly toward fall, and I’ve decided that it’s because fall signals the end of my favorite season (summer) and also brings the promise of colder weather to come (I live for 85 degree days). BUT, these bouquets might just make me change my outlook a little on the season du jour. The stunning shades of oranges and reds and browns and deep purples and all of that texture makes me feel warm and happy and cozy inside. Without further ado, here are eight fall wedding bouquets that I just adore:
1. This orange and yellow bouquet made of ranunculus, celosia, pom-pom dahlias, Vendella roses, gilded eucalyptus leaves, and ruscus foliage.
