FIRE OPAL RING
Celebrate the season in a detail you are able to always cherish.
FALL FOLIAGE CENTERPIECES
Fall leaves were featured in the tall centerpiece.
Green napkins and also a cream -and-brown custom-made silk dupioni tablecloth complemented the colors at the reception of Matthew and Fraser. Centerpieces combined fall-coloured blooms with tree branches.
The meal at Taryn and the fall wedding of Brian began with a few seasonal starters: a roasted and pumpkin -chestnut soup topped with toasted pumpkin seeds.
Communal bounty is joyous, cozy, and seasonal (Thanksgiving anyone?). This spread contained coconut cake, cherry, and coconut cream pies, apple, and cranberry -walnut bars—uh, yum!
FALL WEDDING CAKE
Pears, Roses, and crab apples gave the wedding Marc's wedding an unmistakably autumnal look and cake at Abbie.
Wreaths of seeded eucalyptus made by bride Amy (with help from her bridegroom, Kevin) hung as decor at the couples reception site, the Grange Hall, in Edgartown, Massachusetts.
This couple had their signature cocktails (made by Grand Bevy and composed of vodka, Lillet, cucumber, basil, ginger honey, and lemon) stenciled with a flavorful, seasonal monogram of cinnamon, ground espresso beans, and edible gold.
Pinecones wired to your tree marked the entrance to Joshua's and Lena wedding site in Twain Harte, California.
APPLE CHAIRS CARDS
For Minhee and Truman's autumn wedding, a desk on loan from a closeby school had apples for the teacher (actually seats cards).
WHEAT WEDDING CAKE
Spencer's wedding celebration and the cake at Cara sat atop a wooden pedestal surrounded by stalks of wheat, which matched the colors as well as feeling of the setting.
For his walk down the aisle with Lena, bridegroom Joshua topped off a brown suit with a lighthearted tie and also a fall boutonniere of acorns and oak leaves tied with a jaunty bow.
