Summer quickly tumbles to fall, and with that bittersweet change comes a new type of energy. One of endings and beginnings. One of cool nights and windy days. One of green forests flaming to life in brilliant hues of gold and orange and red before it all disappears into a white winter.
It's no wonder that fall weddings are so coveted. The trick is finding a balance between the incredible colors of nature and the subdued elegance needed to make a sophisticated wedding day come to life. Here, in the Rocky Mountains, somewhere on the border of Utah and Colorado, we set our scene. And what a scene it was.
As I traveled up the Guardsman Pass road to the site in the Wasatch Range, I stopped around nearly every corner. The aspens were early, but that was perfect because between sun and snow, we had a beautiful day to photograph.
Type A Society pulled off a stunning elopement-inspired shoot in the middle of the woods. A simple table, furnished with a mix of roses and foraged blooms sat nestled between the quaking aspens, the occasional ray of sunshine filtering through and bringing it to live.
My instinct, in a pace of extreme texture, is to keep things simple, but the scalloped edges of the plates and frayed napkins were a perfect addition to the neutralizing blue of the suede table cloth.
As the clouds and snow moved back in, the colors of fall darkened, and the scene was new all over again. If you can't tell: the wedding ideas you're about to see are breathtaking. Unique wedding attire, tablescape, invites, shoes, and cake bring this story to life. So if you don't know where to start with your fall wedding, I'd have to tell you the mountains of Colorado are calling.
