Fall has taken a whole new direction in this southern charm wedding inspiration. With the newly revitalized McAlister-Leftwich House as our backdrop, its North Carolina colonial architecture mixed with fall vibes really influenced a new color palette this season. We wanted to keep the fall feeling without overusing warm tones. Eliana of Eliana Nunes Floral Design kept things soft and romantic with stunning arrangements in the ceremony florals, table landscape, and cozy candlelit fireplace display. While using soft muted tones in the cappuccino roses and peach ranunculus, she also added touches of deeper hues when incorporating the blue viburnum berries and burgundy ninebark foliage. So dreamy! We supported the floral arrangements with props from Eventlyst – Party Rentals; they have such a huge range of products that it’s pretty easy to find things in certain colours to match whatever theme you’ve been inspired to create. Anything that makes my life easier is a must!
Priya of Piachella Calligraphy designed and calligraphed all the paper goods using a handmade paper, wax seals, and painted envelope liners to add that perfect hint of texture. Jeanne of Artsy Cakesy crafted a stunning three tiered cake with painted detail up the side in addition to a mix of gum paste greenery and gold floral accents for added warmth. Katie and Laura of Blush and Bobby’s composed the most timeless makeup look which was also complimented with a romantic updo. In keeping with the elegant and romantic theme, a gown with intricate beading throughout the bodice and flowing skirt from Dashing Dames Bridal was the perfect fit. We also couldn’t pass up working with Lauren from L. Priori Jewelry for some truly unique rings including a remarkable moonstone engagement ring. I felt that using film photography would best translate the rich colors as well as the overall romantic feel we had envisioned. For the bride and groom who want a fall color palette while still keeping things soft and rich, this inspiration is for you!
