Rustic Fall Wedding Inspiration

fall rustic inspiration

As the end of summer begins to creep into view, it’s time to think about fall – and all of the rustic, woodsy wedding inspiration that comes along with it! Today’s styled shoot, photographed by Best Photography, is filled with so many charming details that perfectly capture the spirit of autumn – like a hot apple cider bar and a simple wedding cake, adorned with foraged berries + pine cones. And you’re going to love the pretty floral design by Freshly Picked, which incorporates some fun, unexpected blooms + a gorgeous, moody color palette. So many great ideas to pin for all of you fall brides…

The gorgeous couple was styled by Brothers and Craft. The groom’s plaid shirt + wool bow tie are perfect for cooler weather, and I’m pretty crazy about the bride’s dramatic ivory gown from Solutions Bridal.

Love the idea of using leaves as escort cards for a fall wedding! :)

The warm, rustic color palette, and patterns like tartan, help bring to life the cozy + inviting atmosphere that is characteristic to early fall. And to create a lush, harvest table feel, the florist housed textured dahlias, aromatic oregano, elderberry blooms + velvety magnolia leaves in vintage brass goblets…

A vintage peddler’s cart, decorated with whimsical woodland details + eclectic serving vessels, is perfect for displaying an array of fall-inspired desserts like pies + candied apples! And if you are a DIY bride, you might love our Pie in a Jar DIY – it would go perfect with this table!

Malibu Enchanted Garden Wedding: Andrea + Jeff

malibu wedding

Andrea + Jeff’s December wedding was held at the stunning Stone Manor in Malibu, California. The property was perfect for their enchanted garden wedding with it’s perfect cobblestone paths, overgrown ivy walls, an umbrella of trees and a stunning Malibu view overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A bit more about the inspiration behind their wedding from Andrea…

Jeff laughed at me when I told him that my favorite color purple and Taylor Swift’s Wonderstruck perfume ad were the inspiration for the look of our wedding. The man definitely loves me as he supported me throughout the planning process despite all my crazy ideas. In the end, Vanessa (of Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations) helped bring our vision of an enchanted garden wedding to life that reflected both Jeff and myself. For our wedding day, we wanted to have an intimate family get together where both of our families and closest friends could get to know one another and we could spend quality time with everyone who came out to celebrate with us. 

I always say inspiration can come from anywhere and Andrea + Jeff prove that! Congrats to the happy couple + thanks so much to Jill Thomas for the lovely photos!

Andrea donned a simple yet stunning gown of ivory silk and carried a wild bouquet of sterling roses, lambs ear, black calla lilies and orchids. Her bridesmaids were dressed in gowns in a gorgeous array of purples, lavender and steel grey, and carried dusty sage toned bouquets of all greenery.

Andrea: The most memorable moment for me was our first look. Getting to see Jeff before the ceremony allowed us to spend a few moments to focus on just us in that moment before I would walk down the aisle to him. He looked so handsome in his suit!

Jeff: The most memorable moment of our wedding was the cake cutting. Andrea looked so beautiful. All the attention was on us and then she rubbed icing on my face! But I got her back! The cake was really good as well.

The intimate ceremony took place in Stone Manor’s outdoor courtyard surrounded by beautiful foliage and a striking view of Malibu’s rolling hills and the Pacific Ocean. Alchemy Events worked with Krista Jon to create a white birch arbor that was accented with a crystal chandelier and sheer draped cheesecloth for a juxtaposition of glam with an understated organic, garden vibe.

Guests were then welcomed into a stunning stone lined room with open beamed rafters from which glass votives hung that glowed over feasting style tablescapes lined with glowing eggplant taper candles in brass candlesticks. Damask silver + sage linens were lined with mossy birch bark boasting sage toned greenery, white lilies and sterling roses along with heart shaped ivy for a romantic, overgrown garden feel.

For their sweetheart table, Krista Jon created a stunning floral installation inside of a ironed framed table flowing with a gorgeous array of greenery, vines, black baby calla liles and more of the brides favorite – sterling roses.

From Alchemy Events, For this chilly December wedding we wanted to create a cozy and fairytale worthy dessert bar nestled into the tree lined garden. We hung various mirrors and frames behind a grey velvet covered table covered with delectable sweets & treats by Whoa Nelly and Sweet & Saucy shop. Treats such as pomegranate panna cotta, salted caramel puddings with crème fraiche whip, brownie bites & chocolate peppermint cupcakes were offered above risers boating mossy arrangements, wild greenery and loose blooms. To keep guest cozy as they nibbled on these sweet bites in our heated outdoor lounge, we also offered a hot cocoa bar with homemade flavored marshmallows, caramel nibs, candy cane stir sticks and various liquors to spike them with.

Don't start wedding planning until you've enjoyed being engaged for a few weeks. Then, enjoy it! No matter how overwhelmed you feel, remember that everything will get accomplished and it will be gorgeous! Remember to step back and just breathe every once in awhile. Focus on the things that matter the most to you and your future husband. Invest in a great wedding planner :) Definitely could not have pulled this off without Vanessa and Jill.
