There are few things in the world that we collectively get excited for. Fall is one of them. There’s something about the turn from warm summer breezes to chilled evenings that make me so excited. Naturally, fall wedding inspiration is obviously a go-to.

Besides the wonder of autumn, I also love an autumn wedding. I especially love an al fesco celebration, and at this gorgeous day at 4U Ranch in Peoa, Utah was the perfect blend. On the edge of the seasons and nestled in the shade of the mountains behind the ranch, the dinner table was perfect. Tucked by the creek, the simplicity of this space was exactly the thing to create an space where dinner could be enjoyed, but also experienced.

Rich, amber suede combined with pastel tones of pink made for an ideal palette and found itself in the tablecloth and centerpieces. The dahlias and garden roses brought their own shades of pinks and, as any modern table should have, the fruit completed the garden party aesthetic.

As the sun dropped behind the mountains, we lingered in the fields, soaking in the fleeting rays and capturing the turn of the color with Muhammad and Tristan. Take a look.

Absolutely stunning, right? The color play here is such a fresh take on fall. Gone are the gold, navy, and burgundy combos. It’s time for something new and this inspiration shoot provided just that.

The words I hear whenever I see these images are the final sigh Mitch gave Steph as he completed his vows to her. Between shaky breaths he said, “Oh Stephie, I love you more than words can say.” And sometimes it’s as simple as that.

This wedding venue offered a blank slate–white walls, simple chandeliers, large windows, and tall ceilings meant that Diana could design anything in that space. Keeping in line with L&J’s desire for simple, natural elements, they opted for white roses and peonies nestled into an abundance of greenery. For the ceremony, they chose simple cross-back chairs to mimic the wooden ladders of the apple orchard they faced and keep the entire affair organic and true to the location.

Autumn weddings are incredible on their own, but add a healthy dose of fall foliage and my al fresco dreams came true at this blush-inspired wedding day.
