Fall Blackberry Farm Wedding Inspiration

After a weekend at the orchard and indulging in my fair share of cider-themed goodness, it’s safe to say fall is in full swing.  So with #PSL in hand, I’m diving into this seasonal editorial designed by Amber Reverie and photographed by Megan Robinson. Vibrant autumn hues, romantic Foil & Ink stationery and the prettiest blackberry tartlets are just a few of the goodies you’ll find inside THE VAULT.

From Foil & Ink… Set against a stunning mountain range on a charming blackberry farm, this editorial celebrated seasonal transitions. As the blackberries began turning to their full, dark color and dusk settled over the fields, the light cooled and allowed us to capture the raw beauty and romance of this place.

Tucked between the blackberry rows, a reclaimed wood table became the perfect place for an intimate wedding dinner on a summer evening. A primitive stone mortar filled with seasonal blooms included clematis, delicate hydrangea, blackberry branches, blooming oregano, lavender and summer grasses. Rustic blackberry tarts garnished with local lavender by Kneading Gluten Free were served on a beautiful piece of raw black slate, serving as a beautiful alternative to traditional wedding cake. With raw knotted napkins and informal old world place settings, the textural tablescape allowed for a relaxed dining experience, with touches of soft candlelight for ambiance.

The bride wore a light-as-air dusty blue silk dress from Gossamer as she floated ethereally through the rows of blackberry bushes, with a wild rose bouquet on her arm. Bellacosa Beauty created a loosely twisted up-do complimented by a barely-there neutral smokey eye. Finished with minimal raw topaz jewelry, the look was perfect for a soft, romantic bride in this rustic pastoral setting.

Waldorf Astoria Mountain Luxury in Park City, Utah

Still on the hunt for a dream venue? Well, we’re about to do you a solid favor by completing your search. Because when it comes to the ultimate location paired with exquisite details, our friends at the Waldorf Astoria know how to throw a spectacular party.With the glamour of Park City playing backdrop to the unparalleled True Waldorf Service, you’re guaranteed to have the wedding you’ve always dreamed of.

When it comes to creating an exceptional experience – there’s no place your guests will enjoy more than the Waldorf Astoria. Marrying marvelous mountain views and divine details – your wedding will be made up of many unforgettable moments. Whether you’re looking to plan the ultimate destination fête or throw a local lovefest, they’ve got the best of it all at your fingertips.

From Sparkle Photography… Alyssa Anglin & Jeff Hillman planned their destination at the Waldorf Astoria in Park City for the ambience and intimate feel. The wedding theme was mountain elegance and the Waldorf was a perfect backdrop for their 100 guests. The colors were blue, white and grey and carried across from the flowers to the cork boutonniere’s. Jeff proposed to Alyssa at Relic Winery in Napa Valley. In honor of Jeff’s proposal, corks from Relic were used for the groomsmen boutonnieres. The wine theme continued throughout the wedding with wine table numbers and cork seat chart markers.

The ceremony took place in the luxurious lobby of the Waldorf. A crystal chandelier, dramatic staircase, marble floor and string quartet in the lobby created an elegant entrance for the bride. The reception continued under a white tent on the Waldorf property overlooking the gorgeous mountains. Cocktail hour overlooked the stunning landscape with chilled cantaloupe soup, marinated local tomato crostini’s and pork carnitas. A sit down dinner was served of kale salad, roasted sea bass, summer corn and squash ragu, peppercorn crusted prime rib tenderloin and seasonal cobbler. Local Utah honey was the favour for the out of town guests.

The couple met at Stanford University where they both studied economics. After college, they lived in New York for four years before spending two years apart — Jeff relocated to Omaha, Nebraska to work for his family agriculture business, JD Heiskell, and Alyssa moved to Boston to attend Harvard Business School. After graduating with her MBA this past May, Alyssa reunited with Jeff in Omaha and took a job with Nebraska-based sports startup, Hudl. The couple enjoys traveling, sports, and sharing good food and wine with family and friends.

From Julia Wade… Dear friends. She’s married. My beautiful, baby sister. Jeffrey Kruger gave a TED talk in Asheville in 2011 and in it he spoke about the profound, lifelong bond siblings can have. He submits that siblings are a rich, fertile ground for lasting relationships, because truly they are the only people who walk almost your entire life with you.

Sarah, I love you and I so deeply happy that you have found the love of your life. And I am so grateful to walk this life with you as your sister and as your friend.

We created these images for her in Salt Lake City.. our home town.
