The Essence of Autumn

I love the fall season with its lush color and textures.

Some of the most amazing weddings and events I have designed  have been in Autumn. Many have won awards and have been featured in Magazines.

Brides who love color will love the many combinations of seasonal details. From  firey oranges and reds, to rich tawny gold and antique rose shades. There are early harvest shades with the beauty of green leaves  turning to soft yellow to vibrant burgundy. Fruit and seeds, wheat and fall berries and of course pumpkins and branches.

Although the feel of fall in So. California is not the same as our east coast friends. I love to recreate the experience for my west coast clients.

This can be achieved by “setting” the area with eye catching  details and scents that bring memories of home, family and season. Bowls of cinnamon infused leaves and pods set amid amber glass candle holders that emit an inviting  warmth.  A large rustic urn filled with Fall football mums, pepper berries and chines lantern plant.

Then the Gothic touches that come with the Month of October. Deep purples and reds with calla, Black sweet Potato vine  and amaranthus add drama.

Whimsy can be had in the colors of candy corn and lime with black & white.

Anything goes for the Halloween bride, from a masquerade formal  reception right out of Phantom to an all out Vampire and Monster mash .

As with any fall event, send out your save the dates early, as this is the start of party season and who doesnt love a good party!!
