Fall Wedding Inspiration

Inspiration: Celestine and Iolite in Autumn

Autum is a second Spring when every leaf is a flower. -Albert Camus

This styled shoot by Sophie Brendle Photography celebrates the rich jewel tones, soft afternoon light and changing foliage of the season. It is as though the abundant outdoors have come in. Giving a rustic feel to the simple, clean interior, the overgrown flowers, branches, grasses and leaves have reclaimed the space and left one bouquet remarkably long, like Rapunzel's hair long, and just as enchanting. Both our Iolite and Celestine are perfectly at home in this semi-industrial floral masterpiece. Just right for the bride looking for a flowing gown fit for modern romance.

Inspiration Shoot: Downton for Weddings Unveiled

We've got a mad crush on this Fall inspiration shoot captured by Odalys Mendez. The changing leaves on the trees create the perfect backsplash for these luxe details. The rich jewel tone invitations and deep blue velvet shoes pair perfectly with our Downton gown in light silver. The juicy florals look almost good enough to eat and that naked cake definitely is. Maybe, just maybe, summer ending isn't so bad afterall.
