On this cold, snowy February day, we thought if we can’t warm our toes, we would look back to last year and try to at least warm our hearts with Megan and Eric’s beautiful, classic fall wedding. Megan, a “no frills” kind of gal, wanted a muted color palate throughout her wedding. With the bridesmaids in neutral dresses and the men wearing navy, Megan wanted color to be introduced through the flowers. We chose to incorporate rich burgundies, rusty oranges, antiqued greens, deep blues, and softer tones with ivories, peaches, and grays. These colors were found in the dahlias, scabiosa, garden roses, ranunculus, roses, and stock flower that made up her bouquets.
Besides the amazing color schemes, we were able to create the floral decor with fall flowers. Our favorite thing about autumn weddings are the variety of textures offered through greenery, berry, and filler. Megan’s wedding did not lack in these unique findings. We utilized textural elements, such as, seeded eucalyptus, broom corn, thistle, scabiosa pods, hypericum berry, and astilbe, to name a few.
At the reception we wanted the guests’ tables to reflect Megan’s eclectic style. We used multiple height centerpieces with a combo of wood, gold, copper, amber, and clear vases / candle holders. The tables were covered in a floor length ivory linen that allowed the flowers to “pop”. For the head table and guestbook table we used a slate blue linen to make them stand out, while staying within Megan’s tailored style. The overall atmosphere of the reception was warm and inviting; achieved through the rich, unique tones of the flowers and the amber glow of candles lighting the room.
