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.

Nestled just to the east of the Napa River, this beautiful resort is home to a variety of modern farmhouse-inspired suites and bungalows, intermixed through the grape vines. Guests enjoy the privacy of their own lodgings with the ease of a weekend together, making this spot an ideal home base for a weekend of festivities. Accessible from three airports, Oakland, San Francisco, and Sacramento, Stanly Ranch is ideal for relaxed destination weddings.

As a wedding photographer, I am asked over and over how much film I shot at weddings, etc. Short answer? I wasn’t. But now I think this is a small joy I’ll continue granting myself.
