Rustic-Vintage Autumn Wedding Inspiration

Colorado Fall inspiration

Today’s beautifully styled editorial was part of Jessica OH’s most recent OH YEAH workshop, which she hosted back in early October! After spending her own honeymoon at The Highland Haven in Evergreen, Colorado, Jessica knew it would provide the perfect backdrop for a rustic, whimsical photoshoot. And getting to share the setting with the 12 workshop attendees was a total dream for her. We have to say, we’re feelin’ pretty lucky ourselves to get a peek at all the pretty she created! Let’s hear a bit more about the environment she styled + the details she included:

I collect vintage pennant flags throughout my travels + chose several colorful “Colorado” ones to begin my “ode to Colorado” vision. Nellybelle General Store created stunning floral designs + even had the last minute stroke of genius to glean a few tiny aspen branches to add to atop wedding cake. Being intentional about including as much texture as we could, the Rena gown from BHLDN was an easy decision and dear Madlyn looked unreal. At the end of it all, I wanted this shoot to feel how I feel whenever I’m in Colorado…simply dreamy + cozy with tons of romance + wonder.

The vintage-woodland scene Jessica created for the tablescape was total perfection for the vibe of this shoot. It evokes a cozy fall feel, sure to inspire many upcoming autumn weddings + perhaps a few holiday tablescapes, too!

Forest Elopement at Snoqualmie Falls: Samantha + Calen

Snoqualmie Falls elopement

If you’re imaging a wedding day that’s truly all about the two of you: where you want it to be, how you want it to be, and totally reflective of your relationship, you’ll definitely want to save today’s wedding for inspiration. Samantha + Calen knew from the start that they wanted their day to be 100% unique to them, and that meant they couldn’t worry about what people said about their ideas or be swayed by a pretty idea they saw on Pinterest. They scouted out a small piece of forest to exchange their vows in front of a handful of family + friends, and hiked down to take some incredible (like, REALLY incredible!) photos in front of Snoqualmie Falls with their awesome photog, Benj Haisch. Since we know sometimes sticking to your guns can be easier said then done, Samantha shares some planning insight with us that you juuust might find helpful:

Every little girl grows up dreaming of their fairytale wedding, and my fairytale was to run off somewhere extravagant and be with the man I love. When Calen and I first discussed marriage we knew that we had one thing in common: we wanted our wedding day to be completely centered around our love. The night we made decisions about what our wedding would look like, we shared a bottle of wine, turned on our song, closed our eyes and pictured exactly what we wanted. We wanted our wedding to reflect the essence of our love: simple, pure, and beautiful, and it did. The way we did our wedding was one of the best decisions we have ever made, and we are so glad we chose to do it the way we did.

Snoqualmie Falls elopement

Mori Lee wedding dress

Our entire wedding day was absolute perfection to us, and it's hard to choose a favorite moment. If we had to, it would be our post ceremony hike to the waterfall. We were so excited to finally be married and celebrated by giving into our adventurous spirits. The best part of this hike was standing on top of the rock right under the waterfall. On the rock we got drenched by the water coming from the falls, and from the rain pouring down on us from the thunderstorm that broke out. We enjoyed our first moments of marriage with rain beating down on us. We laughed and had so much fun and joy in our hearts knowing we were now joined together as one. The beautiful setting of the waterfall, forest, and rain all around us just added to our happiness in that moment.

If I could give any advice for those planning an elopement now I would say, if you want to, DO IT! Have your wedding be exactly how YOU want it to be. Our society today is predisposed to the idea of having their wedding be like everyone else’s: expensive, big, and catering mostly to other people with the food, music, flowers, etc. This is you and your fiancés day to have everything be exactly what you want. If you want to do an elopement, go for it! If you want to have it just be the two of you, then do just that. If you want a few family members or friends to be there to witness it, then have them be there. No elopement needs to be exactly the same so make yours special to you. It’s a lot more memorable to have your wedding be what you have dreamed of, trust me!

Organic Fall Harvest Wedding Inspiration

organic champagne inspiration

Inspired by the rich, organic elements of fall, as well as the crisp simplicity of modern style, today’s stunning editorial, photographed + styled by Tracy Enoch, features crazy good florals (by Kate Foley Designs) + a perfectly rustic autumnal feel. The team utilized greenery found in nature, selective touches of opulent gold, and made sure the simple, clean lines of modern design came through in each photo + vignette. We’re loving the sweet juxtaposition + cozy sensibility and think you’ll definitely feel the same.
