You’ll Want to Steal this Color Palette for Your Fall Wedding

Dusty pink, sweet peach and sunset orange… does that not sound like THE perfect fall wedding color palette? A charming combo any time of year, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that some of you lovebirds will recreate this slice of inspiration crafted by Lindsey Brunk for your 2017 weddings. Oh, and did I mention a french lace Galia Lahav number makes an appearance? Officially drooling. Charla Storey, I’ll be daydreaming over these images in The Vault for days.

From Lindsey Brunk… Inspired by the warm colors of Autumn paired with gilded accents, this creative collaboration with Charla Storey was the perfect blend of simplicity and decadence. A hidden garden in the middle of downtown Dallas, Nasher Sculpture Center, created the perfect backdrop for our vision. Pollen Events created lush and overflowing arrangements in delicate pinks and warm autumn hues.

Our bride wore an enchanting gown by Galia Lahav Haute Couture made of embroidered french lace and our bridesmaids perfectly complimented her look in dusty pink gowns from BHLDN. Staying away from tradition greys and navy, our groom was outfitted in a slim fit chocolate brown suite. Other details of the day included treats topped with edible flowers, a custom leather escort card display, and one-of-a-kind engagement ring by Susie Saltzman.

Bridal session must-haves? A stunner dress, a knockout bouquet and of course, a breathtaking location. This slice of inspiration crafted by Kristin Sweeting checks all the boxes and the combo is getting all the hands-raised emojis from me. How fun would it be to twirl in one of those Carol Hannah dresses?! Need more convincing that you should do a bridal session? Hop on over to The Vault.

From Kristin SweetingI loved putting together this shoot to show two different bridal looks with the stunning backdrop of the mountains. Carol Hannah’s dresses are show stoppers and Park Floral put together the most beautiful bouquet. I also love seeing brides trying some different colors for their wedding day attire, and the blue in Oceane by Carol Hannah is the perfect subtle pop of color.

A Vow Renewal Guaranteed To Make You Believe in Forever Love

Our love story is perfectly imperfect but it’s ours” says this beautiful Bride and we couldn’t agree more. Those love and life stories are often filled with bumps and bruises and what really amazes us is when couples can take on those difficulties and become stronger. And that’s exactly what Cindy and her husband Nick did. They reunited after time apart and Luminance Wedding Films captured all the magic that went down as they renewed their vows. You’ll be one lifelong believer in love after this right here!

From Luminance Wedding Films“You are my miracle, and I am happy that it is you once again that I get to spend the rest of my life with.” Cindy shared these beautiful words to her husband during their vow renewal session. Their story is one that is very unique and one that we were so honored to be a part of. Cindy and Nick had been married before several years ago. As life sometimes goes, the couple struggled and found themselves going through a divorce a few years later.

After doing a lot of soul searching and finding their faith in God, the couple realized that they were meant for each other and re-connected. Having shared two children together and adopting a third, this family was made whole once again and they were re-married. Not having a video to document this special occasion, the couple approached Luminance Wedding Films to see about creating a vow renewal film. We of course jumped at the chance. Vows are the glue that binds two hearts together. They are what we reflect on when times are tough and when we need a reminder of what we have promised to each other. They see us through the good and the bad times. This film focuses on those important vows and on the strength they found in a life giving and reconciling God.

DesertResort

From the Bride… Ryan and I began as colleagues, quickly became friends and not long after that, became an office romance. Since the day we became more than just friends we have almost not spent one day apart. We work in the entertainment industry and get to support each other in our work and come home to each other at night. We quickly built our own traditions – including spending the holidays with one another’s families. On Christmas Eve of 2015, Ryan proposed and the next day we began dreaming up our ideal wedding. I was never the girl who grew up dreaming about my wedding, so once I got engaged I had no secret bridal manual to whip out and pull plans from. We started from scratch. What we did know was that we wanted the wedding to reflect us as a couple and exude FUN! I grew up in Arizona, Ryan is originally from Chicago, and we both have been living in Los Angeles for many years. We quickly realized that the majority of our guests weren’t familiar with the dramatic desert landscape that we love so much. Hosting our wedding in Arizona felt like an easily accessible location that would be a destination to most of our guests and we knew it was an incredible place to have a good time.

Once we decided on the location, our biggest priority was to feature the spectacular sunsets you can only find in Arizona. We almost immediately locked in the Sanctuary Camelback Resort as our venue. We loved that it is an iconic property in the Phoenix area that sits on the renowned Camelback Mountain and has views that can’t be beat. Further, it is nestled a few hundred feet away from where I attended elementary school, giving it a beautiful sense of nostalgia. We chose a luxurious and dramatic palette of oxblood, blush, green, and ivory to enhance the natural colors of the desert and honor the fall season. We then selected velvet fabrics, brass metals and tons of candlelight to infuse romance and warmth into the black tie optional affair.

Upon arrival, our guests were greeted by the sounds of a string quartet playing some of our favorite modern love songs. The aisle was lined with floral-adorned lanterns leading to a magnificent view of the valley. I chose an elegant, structured, crisp white Vera Wang gown and Ryan was suited up in a gorgeous midnight blue Burberry tuxedo. Through tears, we read the vows we wrote for one another and honored our parents by including them in part of the ceremony. Following the ceremony, guests were invited to enjoy cocktails, passed hors d’oeuvres and – in another attempt to honor the southwestern ambiance – the sounds of a Spanish guitarist. All under a stunning Arizona sunset, something most of our guests were seeing for the very first time.

The formal plated dinner consisted of an Heirloom Tomato and Burrata Salad, Hunan Braised Short Ribs and Chinese Crusted Mustard Salmon. We also offered wedding cake and a dessert bar full of our favorite sweets: chocolate truffles, chocolate dipped strawberries, éclairs, fresh fruit tarts, and mini mousse cakes. And, since I’m such a pizza lover, we provided each guest with a personal pizza at the end of the night. After dinner, the party got rowdy and guests were bouncing between the high energy dance floor and the hilariously entertaining photobooth – which resulted in all sorts of props and costumes on the dancefloor! Post reception, we moved the party to the hotel bar and shut it down with our closest friends and family before retiring to our honeymoon suite for the night – which had been decorated with candles, flower pedals, champagne and gifts by our best friends.
