Secret Garden Wedding Inspiration

We’ve been loving all the fall inspiration floating around on the blogs and (of course) Pinterest lately. There’s nothing quite like that red + burnt orange palette to really get you into the spirit of the season. That being said, we don’t feel like fall brides + grooms should feel obligated to stick to that classically autumn color story. As soon as we saw today’s shoot from Two Spoons Photography + Mug of Love Weddings, we realized you truly can have it all this time of year: a cozy feel that fits right into our current holiday state of mind + the wedding colors of your choosing; in this case a unique, jewel-tone palette that seriously couldn’t be prettier.

This editorial evokes the most magical secret garden feel, and the location – James Madison’s Montpelier in Orange, Virginia – and the florals – designed by Whimsical Floral Design – are to thank for that. If you’re looking to infuse your day with a moody, romantic vibe, you’ll want to pay extra close attention to how these guys pulled off such a dreamy setting + tablescape…

That bouquet has some major wow-factor goin’ on! It features so many amazing elements, but the stand-outs are fuchsia garden roses, purple anemones, and burgundy amaranthus.

Seriously, is there even a setting where a BHLDN dress isn’t total perfection?!

The floral adorned gate is one of our most favorite details from the entire editorial.

The tablescape portrayed a beautiful ‘secret garden’ vibe with more gorgeous florals (featuring ranunculus, pomegranates, eucalyptus + more) and a rustic runner made up entirely of moss. Gold accents + mismatched vintage teacups and saucers helped add in a fun sense of whimsy.
