Slowly but surely fall is creeping into southern New England. The color has been a little later than usual because of all the rain we’ve had, but it’s finally here. Fall truly is my favorite time of year. I love the deepening jewel tone colors of burnt orange, crimson reds and golden yellows. For me, some of the most gorgeous weddings happen in the fall. Whether you are getting married in the crisp morning air or late afternoon warmth, a first look should be on your wedding photo must-do-list. And we have the perfect activity for you to make those first few moments extra special. A First Look Toast with some of your favorite fall treats to celebrate you, your love, and the day where two become one.
We styled this month’s First Look Toast with some of our favorites – apple cider donuts and mulled cider. Oh-so-yummy! (If you’ve never had apple cider donuts you are in for a treat! We can’t wait until our local farm stand starts making them in September. Delicious!) We paired the treats with a few assorted gourds and a pop of color with silk florals. We placed everything on a gold charger, decorated with a simple paper doily. Burlap napkins were folded and tied with twine and adorned with a fragrant cinnamon stick. Very simple, rustic, romantic, a snack for just you two! :)
Just a few photos of fall…
Note: We chose mulled cider to compliment our toast today but you could use chilled sparkling cider, a deep burgundy red wine, or maybe even a pumpkin latte! Sky’s the limit! Hot or cold, alcohol or not, make it yours, and make it yummy! Here’s to you!
What about you? Is it fall where you are yet?
Happy Fall & Happy Tuesday!
