Design Sponge Fall Wedding

by Amy Azzarito

Few things inspire me quite like fall colors. While we were planning our posts for November, we kept seeing beautiful photos of rich, wine-colored dahlias and peonies. As much as I love a soft pastel flower, there’s something about deep purples and reds that feel so dramatic and stunning this time of year. So, inspired by that color palette, we decided to put together our own dream wedding with the help of our friends! We made some calls to our friends at Terrain and they were kind enough to let us use their Styer’s location to create our favorite versions of a fall wedding tabletop, backdrop and flowers. As much as we love a beautiful photograph, we wanted this wedding to be full of DIY ideas that were easy to reproduce for your own special event (or any fun party- it doesn’t need to be a wedding). So over the course of this week, we’ll be sharing a handful of great DIYs from this wedding, including a cake decoration, floral dog collar, fruit votives, gold leafed salt cellars and much more. Thank you so much to one of our favorite wedding photographers Jorge de la Barra for traveling with us to Philadelphia to photograph this story. Not only did he help us bring this shoot to life, he’s also giving away a free engagement session photoshoot in NYC! So if you’re in the NYC area (or are willing to travel here). You will be able to enter the contest on Friday over at Style Me Pretty. We’ll post the details later this week. (In the meantime, you can check out his work here) Thanks again to our friends at Terrain, our awesome friend models Brian and Melissa, the best dog model ever, Seymour Soslow,  Ginny Branch Stelling and Sullivan Owen for helping our wine-colored wedding dreams come true. xo, grace
