Classic and Sophisticated Fall Wedding at Brotherhood Winery • Michelle Lange

 

It seemed appropriate that with the unseasonably cool weather we had this weekend, we'd share this stunning fall wedding from Michelle Lange. Sophisticated and utterly timeless, everything from Nicole + Matt's day was deliberately chosen and perfectly executed. The muted fall colors, Nicole's classic dress, and the rustic elegance of Brotherhood Winery - every element is pure perfection. 


From the Bride, Nicole: Matt and I wanted to find ways that we could incorporate autumn and the feelings our favorite season bring to mind, to create a day that reflected who we were as a couple and that made our closest friends and family feel welcome and comfortable. Instead of going with the traditional colors of fall, we wanted to do a softer color palette and let the scenery and background be the pops of color. Overall we incorporated blushes, gold and champagne in the floral arrangements, décor and attire. We put so much of ourselves into the details of the day so we truly felt that we had created exactly what we wanted: a beautiful venue surrounded by the people we really love. The months leading up to the wedding were an all-out effort from our families, bridal party and vendors to make everything come together – from the caterer executing a beautiful seasonal menu, to the florist incorporating soft fall florals throughout the venue, our vision really came to life. We served warm apple cider, had pashminas for guests to keep warm, acorns scattered on tables, warm apple pie and fall desserts instead of a large wedding cake.

Intimate Rustic Wedding at Moonstone Manor • Ali Paul Co.

 

I can't think of any better way to end the week than sharing this stunning fall wedding from Ali & Paul Co. You saw Kayla + Zane's mountaintop engagement yesterday, but that was just the beginning... their wedding is the epitome of classic elegance blended with rustic charm, and a little whimsy thrown in for good measure. The venue, the dress, those flowers... swoon! And the ice cream truck? What a perfectly fun way to end the night! 


From Ali : Zane & Kayla had a gorgeous woodland themed wedding that tied in well with their love for the outdoors and ice-cream. (Yes... ice-cream.) The guests were given a small envelope with a note on the front instructing them not to open until 7:00. They were then treated to a small cone from the sweetest, local ice-cream truck! It was the best surprise and their guests loved it! Also, I'm totally down with a pasta bar at every single wedding... mmkay?

The day was filled with so many sweet moments, but one of my favorites was when her grandfather was assisted out of his wheelchair, for a short moment, to dance with the bride!

Whimsical Rustic Wedding at Rock Island Lake Club • Deborahann Photography

 

Some days you come across a wedding so beautiful, you just can't choose a favorite photo. Kasey and Jamie's wedding from Deborahann Photography is one of those weddings. Her dress, the setting, the flowers, the cake.... all of it more stunning than the next. All of it a perfect blend of rustic-but-elegant, with a touch of whimsy. 


From Debbie: Kasey and Jamie met at an 80’s party seven years ago.  They definitely defined the cliche, “love at first sight” since they have been inseparable ever since! They both share the love of the outdoors, wildlife and nature, so it was totally fitting that Jamie proposed to Kasey at their favorite fishing spot at a lake that Kasey had spent her childhood years enjoying. It was here that Jamie baited a fish hook with the engagement ring tied to it. He turned to Kasey and asked if she could bait the hook. It was then that she saw the ring tied to the hook and as she turned around, Jamie was down on one knee and then proceeded to ask Kasey to be his forever!

As the plans for their wedding started to unfold, they both wanted their wedding celebration to be in the true nature of simple, classic and an authentic style to really define their relationship. Kasey’s love for flowers and the outdoors totally came together as they celebrated at the Rock Island Lake Club. The day was filled with celebration, dancing and enjoying their families on a beautiful lake.

I think the most special thing about their wedding was the beautiful florals created by Tracey Reynolds Floral designs.  Tracey knows how to create magic to say the least.  It was a feeling of whimsicality with a beautiful undertone of country charm.  Kasey wanted to feel as if she was in a garden  surrounded by her favorite flowers and that is exactly how it turned out. The day was truly relaxed and was not rushed at all. Everyone just took their time and one of the nicest things that I saw was that they truly enjoyed every moment of their wedding day.

Modern Rustic Summer Wedding at The Waterwitch Club • Gilded Lily Events

 

We adore every detail of this summer wedding from Gilded Lily Events, and know you will too! From the stunning backdrop of the Waterwitch Club, to the perfect florals and the most adorable first look we've ever seen, Pat Furey captured it all. 


FROM PAIGE: The Water Witch Club is like your home away from home. It is one of my very favorite venues in New Jersey because it has that homey feel without the stress of hosting your wedding in your own backyard. I love watching guests immediately relax when they enter this 1900s beauty. Couples are able to get married on their lawn overlooking a view of the New York City skyline, can sip cocktails on the perfect porch and then dance on the hardwood floors under bistro lights surrounded by their closest family and friends. The Water Witch Club only hosts approximately 12 weddings a year and with its growing popularity, the exclusivity makes it that much more special.

I love how much character this venue has with its dark wood and antique fixtures. To soften the spaces, we used a palette of blush, mint and white and premium flowers such as peonies, ranunculus, & garden roses. With a late May wedding, they had the pick of the litter when it came to luxurious blooms. . It was the perfect juxtaposition of the masculinity of the space. Janice and James knew that they wanted an unconventional space that felt like them and where their guests could just let loose and enjoy! And enjoy they did - you should have seen the dance moves!

We were so lucky that Pat Furey Photo was there to capture this gorgeous couple. Check out their first look and portraits- they are some of my favorite to date! When planning your day, make sure you pay close attention to your wedding day timeline to dedicate time for these gems- they will be treasured forever!
