Autumn is in the air…

We thought we’d take a look back to one of our October weddings from last year to keep our creativity going and to really enjoy the beauty of autumn.  This wedding took place at the Commander’s Mansion in Watertown, Massachusetts.  This historic home, built just after the Civil War, was the perfect setting for a lovely outdoor ceremony and reception.  All photography by Aurora de Luca.

Lovely, deep maroon dahlias are the stars in the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

The bridesmaids bouquets incorporated deep shades of maroon, fresh greens, and pale fuschias.  The bride held a bunch of elegant rust colored Calla lilies, the perfect complementary color.

On each table at the reception were bunches of dried wheat with lavender that the guests could take with them and enjoy long after the wedding.  The pumpkins and autumn squashes continue the color palette of the season.

Nature’s stunning display of dahlia in bloom, with variegated tips.

With the textural wheat centerpieces were these lovely little gems.  These variegated dahlias in transparent bud vases give a nod to the historical feeling of the mansion with the fluted, delicate glass and keep the feeling of the reception romantic, but stunning.

We are feeling inspired already!
