This Romantic Fall Day Will Make You Question Everything You Thought About Halloween Weddings

This may be a Halloween wedding, but the only thing scary is how scary beautiful it is. Without cheesy jack-o-lanterns or an overwhelming presence of orange and black décor,  Chill Weddings created a sophisticated affair with a romantic fall color palette, warm candlelight and a dessert bar meant for Trick-Or-Treating. See it all from Emily Wren Photography in The Vault!

From The Bride…When we first began planning our big day we didn’t have a particular location or venue in mind, but knew we wanted to find an untraditional, intimate setting that reflected our personality and aesthetic taste — a venue that was elegant-rustic, romantic and cozy. We chose POMME in Radnor, Pennsylvania, near where Jodi grew up. The venue is secluded in a beautiful, lush and landscaped setting, and for a Halloween wedding, created the perfect, colorful backdrop for capturing our special day.

The ceremony was set in the round under a suspended floral arrangement creating a very personal setting for Jodi and Graham to be married by their best friend from childhood and college, Lizzy Ott. Following, a rustic, indoor/outdoor gazebo offered an ideal setting for cocktail hour, and allowed our guests to enjoy the romantic pond with a nesting family of swans. The focal point of the reception space was a decorative fireplace, which helped inspire the overall vision. We chose a soft and romantic color pallet of pale pinks, sage greens and whites/creams with a slight pop of navy/purple, to contrast the dark, rich seasonal colors outside. The room’s intimacy made it easy to decorate with warm and personal touches like copper candlelight, picture frames, marquee lights, and varying floral decor at each table. Our floral designer Papertini really understood our vision from day one — from the beautiful, hanging floral arrangement that served as a centerpiece for our ceremony, and loosely-shaped organic bouquets, to surprising accents like an antique, industrial bar and salvaged wooden doors which displayed the guests’ tablecards — every element was carefully considered.

Another important aspect of the wedding was the menu. We wanted to create something different from the traditional wedding fare, and a menu that reflected our favorite cuisine. We worked with the Chef from Peachtree & Ward to develop a Mexican-inspired offering that combined a surf & turf plated dinner with family style sides like Mexican street corn and fried yucca tots, producing a fun and casual atmosphere.

The final element for us was ensuring our guests were on the dance floor all night long! Our brand EBE’s Barcelona, created a lively, party atmosphere and overall, an unforgettable evening.

From the Bride…Aaron and I met in college, at a summer job on campus. He changed light bulbs in the dorms over the summer and I kept track of his and other students work in the housing department office. I didn’t know that he liked me until I realized how easily I could make him blush.

Aaron proposed to me about a month after my birthday and Valentine’s Day, right when I had given up on engagement for another year. He and my best friend, Brooke, had secretly gone out shopping for the perfect ring but because the sapphire had to be ordered special, it was later than he expected. In hindsight having it actually be a surprise was worth it.

Wedding planning was hard for me, I knew what I wanted the wedding to feel like, but translating that into lots of tiny decisions was difficult. Having a sister and mom with a lot of ideas and encouragement helped. Somethings were definitely easy, Maria was the only photographer I wanted to work with and Stephanie from Blue Daisy Florals had such beautiful arrangements and understood what I wanted right away. Raina included a lot of details in the place settings that I wouldn’t have considered but when it was all put together it was too good to pass up.

The day of the wedding came together much better than I could have planned. We were incredibly lucky with the weather, it rained before we got to the venue, stopped raining enough for us to take pictures outside– rained again before the ceremony, and cleared up just in time for us to be married in the garden where I had told Aaron 4 years prior that I wanted to be married there. The day felt like a dream, we were surrounded by friends who had come as far as the Netherlands to be with us— it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. One of my favorite parts of the day was when our master of ceremonies (it was a self uniting ceremony, so a close friend led us through the ceremony) took a moment and told us to look out at all the people who came to our wedding to support us, and who loved us. That was a powerful, unexpected touch that brought a busy, crazy day to a standstill for a few moments.

April Showers Bring May Flowers For This Springtime Styled Shoot

After a crazy winter (seriously, there were weeks in those scary single digits), we’re all welcoming spring with WIDE OPEN ARMS. But spring doesn’t always arrive on time. It teases us a bit, stops by, leaves, comes back around…and this time of transition is what inspired The Event Group to create the scene before us. Playing on the darkness of winter up against the bright incoming spring, copper and slate complement each other and we’re all the better for it. Eva Lin and All Heart Photo & Video snapped away and with these pics in our Vault, we’re ready to dive head first into the season before us!

From The Event GroupWhimsical and edgy, “In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb” draws inspiration from the lingering northeast winters and the promise of spring. Commonly an overlooked time of the year, this collaboration will invigorate the wedding world with a refreshing and creative take on the transitional months of March and April. Warm copper tones, dramatic florals and complementary textiles will create a delicate balance between the romance of winter and the playfulness of spring.

Encompassing this dark versus light concept, the Ace Hotel ballroom was the perfect host for this collaboration. The abundance of natural light not only makes for exquisite photographs, but also touches on this airy hope for spring, while the contradicting black drapes speak to the darkness of winter.

P.S. The models in this shoot are a real life married couple and are absolutely adorable!
