Fruits + veggies

Autumn is officially harvest season, making it totally appropriate to use your favorite fruits and vegetables in your décor! We love the pop of colors fresh produce adds to a table setting.

Is there anything more autumnal than foliage? Throw those leaves around like confetti by putting them in your bouquets, your ceremony arch, and your centerpieces!

Pies in Lieu of a Cake

Apples and peaches and berries, oh my! If wedding pies are wrong, we don’t want to be right! Ditch the traditional cake altogether or serve mini pies for a seasonally delicious treat.

Family-Style Dinner

There’s just something about eating a meal family-style that feels like fall. Whether it’s the Thanksgiving vibes or simply coming together to laugh and break bread in the chilly air, we think a family-style dinner is a lovely way to give your wedding the spirit of the season.
