Ah, the autumn inspiration continues. Each fall editorial we see brings something new to the table, and really – can you have too many ideas? We think not. For this shoot, the team at To La Lune combined natural beauty (hello, stunning horse!) and elegance to create a whimsical shoot with soft details.

Thanks to the talented Ashley Kelemen (check her out in our vendor guide) for these photos:

A little pretty calligraphy for ya… c/o Lovely Paper Things.

To La Lune says, The custom wedding suite by Lovely Paper Things has a classic softness inspired by the concept in W.B. Yeats poem of dancing upon the wind. Hand-painted calligraphy on beautiful silk calls to mind a graceful autumn breeze, while the modern composition of classic typefaces takes on the fluid air of a romantic melody

For the florals, Sweet Marie Designs came up with three arrangements: a bundle of branches, a dreamy selection of seasonal flowers for the bouquet, these voluminous potted blooms.

Just because we’re forever fans of color doesn’t mean we’re against a sleeker palette. In fact, injecting a little masculinity into a wedding theme can arguably provide more romance. Not convinced? These images by Kat Bevel Photography give pink flowers and white dresses a run for their money:

Knowing that many of her clients wanted something a little different, Kathlee of Beau Tied Events whipped up a scene complete with mid century modern elements, bright greenery, and a little Brooklyn flair…

I plan a lot of weddings with palettes of pinks, pastels, and traditionally feminine colors – which I love – but I begun to think a lot about unique designs for my clients who specifically do not want a pink or floral-filled wedding. This idea evolved into a shoot around a couple that wanted a wedding to reflect their personal style and taste – with influences of urban architecture, foraged local plants, and mid-century design.

The centerpieces by Rosehip Flora were made up of greens foraged from around Austin… So cool.

One important element of the shoot was showing a groom that’s just as invested in his fashion as the bride. Doesn’t he look dapper in this custom suit from Dandy’s – a store that focuses on classic, vintage styles?

A quick warning: there’s basically no way you can see J + R’s woodland wedding + read all the bride’s sweet words without walking into the weekend happy. Not only did a close friend officiate, but Rachel’s best gal, photographer Paige Jones (vendor profile) documented the whole day for them. Rachel says, When you are revisiting that significant day through photos, there is no greater gift than to be engulfed with all of those same incredible feelings you felt on one of the best days of your life – Paige’s photos do that. So happy we could see what she means in the photos below.

They DIYed everything from the invites to the signage and more, knowing that the best way to make their wedding truly “them” was to simply do it themselves. Luckily, these two are pretty crafty!

Rachel tells it, On the day of the ceremony, we were lucky enough to have a lot of our friends and family there, happily lending helping hands during set up. I grabbed a bunch of my gals and we set up the florals and dinner tables, while Jeff and his buddies foraged for more greenery for the dinner tables, stocked the booze and set up our ceremony.

Rachel’s notes on the venue, Jeff’s parent’s home… 

There have been a lot of memories created here by him and his family, and of us together, traveling back every year for holidays. It is one of the places that means the most to us and we have always wanted to share that with the rest of our friends and my family who have heard so much about it, so it couldn’t have been more fitting. Not only is their home beautiful, with plenty land to hold 150 people, it is surrounded by a gorgeous forest of tall trees that allowed for not only a little bit of privacy, but a very pretty setting. I feel so honored to be able to have married the man I love in a place of such meaning. It was a dream.

J + R decided not to hire a wedding planner, but are super grateful for the help of Jeff’s mom throughout the whole process. Rachel says her #1 tip to couples planning is: Let people help. I am such a do-it-myself kind of person. I will take on more than I can handle just to make sure things go the way I had planned, so I get it when a bride goes into planning her wedding with the idea of doing it all herself. But, when it comes to planning something this big, the help is so useful. It makes the process so much easier, it makes your family/friends feel more involved, and it is really fun creating/planning with family and friends.
