Fall is my absolute favorite season… and for a lot of reasons. The beautiful colors, the crisp, clean air, the falling leaves. But ranking high atop that list? Fall weddings. Because in my humble opinion, it just doesn’t get any better than a cozy meets romantic day set against a gorgeous Autumn backdrop. Need proof? Lay your eyes on this stunner from the always-amazing Olivia Leigh Photographie, which is like a literal fairytale come to life with beautiful blooms from Fleur Couture, an enchanting Elizabeth Fillmore gown and a mesmerizing Cuneo Mansion and Gardens setting. See every last stunning moment in the full gallery.
From Olivia Leigh Photographie… Lindsay and Beau are a couple as sweet as they are gorgeous. They met in Chicago when they lived in the same apartment building and were married in the Fall of 2012 at the lovely Cuneo Mansion outside of Chicago. This gorgeous and historic home has stunning grounds and rooms filled with interesting historic details, and was the perfect setting for the slightly vintage-glamourous look the couple pulled together.
Lindsay looked like a silver screen age movie star in her flowing silk gown, and Beau looked dapper in his slim-fit suit. They had a ceremony on the lawn outside of the mansion (and also where the brunch and reception scenes from My Best Friend’s Wedding took place), at the height of Fall season, with magnificent oranges and golds all around them. Both part of small, close families, they did a champagne toast with just their parents after the ceremony, a sweet and unique touch. A reception followed indoors, where Lindsay and Beau cut their croquembouche and she changed into a very fitting retro-inspired getaway look. So cute and chic!
