Nothing says autumn like a stack of books and plenty of candlelight. Kate and Sheldon, our DIY couple, incorporated a literary theme throughout their decor with books and blooms in the centrepieces and an inventive use of library cards. A rich, saturated colour palette of burgundy, navy, and cream was used in the florals. Roses, berries, astilbe, orchids and calla lilies fit the season perfectly. Guests were greeted by the warmth of the fireplace with a beautiful wooden mantle in the white washed farm building at Cave Spring’s Retreat. The intimate and romantic ceremony was followed by a cozy reception in the cellar at The Inn On The Twenty. Thanks to Gemini Photography for the gorgeous photos.

Melissa & Nathan were counting on an outdoor ceremony, but it was a little too cool and too wet outside. But that didn’t stop them from having the beautiful autumn wedding they were dreaming of! The tent at Château des Charmes looked magical, with long harvest tables, lace runners, and mahogany Chivari chairs by Simply Beautiful Decor. Sweet Celebrations made the most adorable pink macaroon favours, fitting perfectly with Melissa’s blush dress! One of our favourite parts about this wedding were the cute little DIY’s that Melissa’s elementary school students created for her. She asked them each to describe “what it means to be married”, and displayed the responses on the guestbook table. So adorable!
