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.
Such a sweet shot with their beloved bikes! A perfect homage to how it all began…
Big congrats to Chelsa + Dennis on a beautiful day!
