A Love for All Things Fall - Halloween Wedding Celebrates Spooky in Style

Chad and Natalie's wedding was one where their guests watched the couple literally falling in love. They share a common love for the season and everything it encompasses. From the changing of colors in the trees to the creativity that comes with Halloween, their love for the season and each other was evident. Much of the decor, Natalie made by hand! This wedding was a celebration of the beauty of nature [love Temecula Creek Inn's extra special Stone House set amongst a glade of trees!] rustic, spooky, and full of surprising elements, including a Monster Mash first dance!  It's safe to say that this couple didn't miss a trick-- or treat! Happy Halloween!

San Diego Featured Wedding: High School Sweethearts Celebrate a Family Affair Wedding

For Staci and Nathan Staton, marriage was a long time coming. The two were high school sweethearts and had been dating for over 12 years when they finally got married! What really made this fall wedding so special was the importance of family. Staci's maid of honor was actually Nathan's sister, and Nathan's best man was actually Staci's brother. On top of that, they are all best friends. To top it all off, the maid of honor and the best man are actually married! So, this wedding was a family affair to say the least!

Candlelight's glow and Autumn's richest colors make for one gorgeous styled shoot!

This beautiful styled shoot called "Fig & Fawn" was inspired by Autumn's deep, rich colors and the warmth and glow of candlelight. What could be more romantic?! We love the richness of deep plum, combined with the softness of rustic grey, contrasted with the metallic copper. 

Bringing mixed metals and unique materials together created an amazing dimension of effects through pattern, color and texture. From the vintage furniture to the tablescapes, the couture wedding dress to the vibrant jewelry, nothing speaks more to rustic elegance than this eclectic mix. The tables were designed with vintage black china, gold silverware and handpicked goblets along with deep plum napkins and hand calligraphy wooden place cards. Adding incredible depth were the florals of amnesia and lavender roses, thistle, Queen Anne's lace, silver dollar eucalyptus and copper painted succulents draping down from above and across the table. The table was finished with gorgeous high-backed vintage chairs and the glow from numerous tiered brass candle sticks. Romantic and charming, we hope that this inspires all couples who are currently planning a vintage fall wedding! Please click any image to see the whole styled shoot feature...enjoy!
