Autumn Blush


Confession: I cannot for the life of me decide what my favorite wedding season is. Summer is the go-to for perfect weather, abundant flowers, and every color under the sun. Fall is cozy but you still can have gorgeous weather, and it’s sentimental–my parents had a November wedding so I grew up looking at their autumn-in-New-York wedding pictures. Winter is so romantic, and anything on an all-white background is fine by me. Spring is sweet and whimsical. Seriously, I guess the good news is that no season is bad! :)

I posted this inspiration board on Hey Gorgeous last month, and it’s still one of my favorites. Blush and gold is one of my absolute favorite color combinations right now, and it’s such a contrast from the rich, deep tones one expects in a fall wedding.

What do you think of this soft color scheme for the fall? Is there a different unexpected route you prefer, or do you like things more traditional?

    Lovely images! Whichever season we are in seems to be our favourite to photograph! We have just finished an autumn bridal fashion shoot, so that’s our current favourite! Interestingly ‘blush’ has been tipped to be a big bridal trend for 2012!

    still love this inspiration board!

  3. Gorgeous! I like that this is an unexpected color scheme for fall. Honestly, I’m just not a big fan of fall weddings that are all “Hey! I’m a fall wedding! Look at me and all my leaves and pumpkins and yellows and oranges!”

    I love the mercury vase and the nude/blush bridesmaid dresses. Don’t even get me started on the shoes!

    What a heavenly board! My parents were married in New England in October, so it’s no wonder I’ve always loved riotous red and white weddings!
