Rustic Pink and Navy Barn Wedding

When we saw this wedding, we just knew we had feature it.  Chock full of charming country details and adorable signage, Madison and Cameron's rustic barn wedding is absolutely perfect.  And while all the details in their wedding are amazing, our favorite part is actually the story of how the bride and groom came together.

Madison’s grandmother had discovered Cameron long before Maddie had and desperately wanted the two of them to meet. A couple of years after Maddie’s grandma pointed him out at their church, Cameron decided to ask Maddie out. Ironically enough, the sermon from that day’s mass was on serendipity, a term that means “the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way” (are you crying yet??). That serendipitous Sunday morning accidentally turned into one of the best days of their lives.

We love how much thought was put into this wedding and how much personal detail was included.  Almost all the decor was DIY from the bride and her family.  A big thank you to Ebby L Photography for sharing these beautiful wedding photos and this beautiful love story with us today.

Cameron and Madison set out a cart of blankets for guests to snuggle up with as the night air turned cool. Such an adorable idea for a Spring or Fall wedding.  We especially love the added "Keep Cozy" chalkboard signage.

When the ceremony finished, the evening continued with a happy hour filled with cocktails, a popcorn bar, and yard games.  We love the vintage lace and floral detailing of the popcorn bar and the creative "Watering Hole" bar.

Fall Wedding Guest Souvenir Ideas

We can't help but get excited when thinking about Fall. What's not to love?  The leaves turn a beautiful color of golden red, the weather is crisp, and pumpkin spice is around every corner. If you are lucky enough to have a fall wedding, you have undoubtedly thought about your wedding favors. Your guest souvenirs are the perfect opportunity to incorporate an element of the Autumn season into your wedding decor.  They don't even have to be difficult or over the top.  Just pick one element of the season that you and your fiance absolutely love such as pumpkins, apples, or leaves and build on that idea.  If it is something you love,  your guests are bound to love it too.  For some sure fire wins, check out some of our top picks for Fall wedding guest souvenir ideas.  To see more ideas visit us here.

Pumpkins

From a "Pick Your Own" pumpkin patch to the gilded variety, pumpkins are the ideal favor idea for Fall weddings. Abundant and relatively inexpensive, pumpkins are festive and can be decorated to match the theme of your wedding.

Acorns, Nuts, and Seeds

Acorns, nuts, an seeds are a cute twist to traditional Fall elements like pumpkins and leaves.  Include a roasted seed and nut buffet at your wedding along with personalized favor bags for guests to fill and take home with them.  If you are feeling especially crafty, make acorn shaped chocolates to set out at each guest place setting.  Items like these acorn shaped measuring spoons make a great addition to bridal showers to tie in the theme of your wedding.







Apples

Apples are the quintessential fall fruit.  Tie in apples throughout your fall wedding for instant charm and coziness.  For guest souvenirs, give loved ones homemade apple butter, caramel apples, or set out bags for guests to fill with apples and take home.  A hot apple cider bar is a great addition for late in the season outdoor weddings to take the chill off.




Leaves and Trees

For a "Fall in Love" wedding theme, falling leaves and tree favors are a must-have.  Fall shaped souvenirs like bottle openers, bottle stoppers, and even prepackaged maple syrup make cute favor ideas that will tie in your decor.  Personalized fall napkins add an extra special touch to your decor and double as favors for guests to take home as a memento of your special day.

Modern Industrial Rooftop Wedding

Today we are so excited to share with you another jaw dropping wedding sent to us by the award-winning Silvia from Blumenthal Photography. Luke and Madeline's gorgeous rooftop wedding is full of so many stunning details from the cascading aisle backdrop to the bride's stunning couture wedding gown.

For these high school sweethearts, it was love at first sight.  Luke and Madeline have known each other since they were fifteen and still love to laugh together and travel together.  In fact, Luke proposed while on a beach in Bali, down on one knee while the tide was out and the sun was setting behind them.  Swoon. Can't you just picture it! Their ceremony and reception were held at the Luminare Sky Deck in Melbourne with the city skyline as their backdrop.   Madeline's gorgeous couture Jane Hill wedding gown actually detaches at the bottom so that she was able to dance and move around during their reception. We hope you love every detail of this gorgeous wedding as much as we do.  Cheers to the happy couple!
