Earlier this week, I revealed to you my deep love for all things Fall. Today I introduce you to a special guest blogger today who shares my love of a lot of things, but particularly great weddings. Especially great Fall weddings! Y’all know how behind on blogging weddings I am, and to be honest, when I look at some of these images that I love, I have hard time of thinking of how to share them with you because I love everything in them! So this time, I showed images to the fabulous Blair, one of our Brides from 2011 (the one who had her wedding featured on Wedding Chicks AND Southern Living Weddings Magazine!) who is also a dear friend and part of our wedding team from time to time! She then was willing to offer a fresh perspective on some of the fun details that stood out to her as a newlywed and wedding lover.
You know what I love most about fall? That feeling of change in the air, of new beginnings, of a fresh start on a new year. While it’s not technically a “new year,” it sure does feel that way, doesn’t it? The trees, in spectacular fashion, are shedding the old to make way for the new. The air is more crisp, the vibe more cozy and romantic. What better time of the year to get married and start a new life together!
Of course, in the South especially, fall wouldn’t be fall without football. And this wedding brought together what some might call a “house divided,” with one hard-core Alabama fan (Bobby) and one die-hard Tennessee Volunteer (Lisa)! Anyone have some marriage advice for the days their teams play each other?
Lisa and Bobby held both their ceremony and reception at Brentwood Baptist Church. They filled their special day with classic fall décor and sweet personal details. The natural touches like branches and pumpkins, along with warm traditional colors throughout the décor (browns, golden yellows, crimson reds with natural greens) made this a classically beautiful fall celebration.
To make it extra-personal and show off that mutual passion for football, they surprised their guests with a pretty unbelievable Alabama Crimson Tide grooms cake! At the end of the day they required their guests to “pick-a-side” by choosing a Tennessee or Alabama shaker, and they were sent off to their honeymoon through a sea of bright orange and crimson! Don’t you just love when couples bring personal details into their wedding that really share who they are? I know I do!
Enjoy the beautiful images from Justin Wright Photography and prepare to be inspired for your own fall wedding!
