Fall Upstate New York Wedding: Chelsa + Dennis

Floral Pant Bridesmaids

The weather may be telling a different story in most parts of the country, but it’s the first day of October, fall is officially upon us, and we’re celebrating today with Chelsa + Dennis’ gorgeous autumn wedding at Buttermilk Falls Inn in Upstate New York, planned by Tinsel & Twine. This darling duo is quite the entrepreneurial pair: Dennis is a founder of Foursquare + Chelsa is a stylist (and is about to launch her own beauty line). Their first date + proposal both involved an awkward, yet endearing, bike ride (read more about it on Martha Stewart Weddings!), so bicycles became a prominent theme throughout their day. Bikes graced their DIY invites, flanked the aisle + were the perfect prop to pose with for their portraits with their photographer, Shannen Natasha. Such a sweet celebration + such gorgeous inspiration for other couples planning a fall wedding!

Amy Merrick designed stunning florals for the occasion. Chelsa carried a fern + tulip bouquet + the bouts were comprised of bush ivy, black scabiosa + sea oats.

Chelsa walked in to the theme from Jurassic Park, a childhood favorite of hers. Dennis shares, Everyone told me seeing Chelsa walk down the aisle would be the best part. It definitely lived up to the hype.

Words can’t describe our love for this bridesmaid ensemble: Anthropologie tops paired with silk Alice + Olivia pants. And Chelsa looked so classically beautiful in Vera Wang.
