This bride’s bouquet is the number one reason why I will forever pine over fall weddings. The beautiful burgundies and creams against nature’s fall foliage is a color combination that never gets old. Splendid Stems worked magic with these gorgeous bouquets and Carmen Santorelli captured it all. For anyone unsure of what season to say their “I do’s,” I’m pretty sure these pics will help you make that decision.


From The Bride… When Matt and I started planning our wedding, we knew we wanted something classic with a touch of whimsy. Some of the inspiration came from Style Me Pretty, of course. Once we settled on the venue, my main goal was to keep it simple, seasonal, and let the vendors do what they do best. After I aligned the perfect team, the rest fell into place. On our wedding day it rained all morning, but we truly embraced every aspect of our celebration. I didn’t hesitate to pack an umbrella and my rain boots to add some charm to our portraits, and the rain stopped just on time to enjoy an outdoor ceremony and the most beautiful view on a fall day.
