The bride, her bouquet, and the groom stand at Slattery Vintage Estates

Wedding Inspiration: Bring Autumn Hues to Your Decor

With a change in the air, make your autumn wedding a romantic bounty with the soft shades of fall.

(Above) New horizons never looked so lovely. Our couple celebrates their new chapter at the charming Slattery Vintage Estates, a hidden gem halfway between Lincoln and Omaha. This working vineyard features 84 rolling acres of natural splendor, with vistas to match.

(Below) The artistry of Bobbys and Blush accentuates the positive for a flawless wedding-day look. The sky-blue necklace by Kendra Scott complements her azure peepers, or, if you’re blessed with big brown eyes or sultry green irises, brings the “something blue” quite nicely, thank you. The diamond scroll engagement ring and white-gold diamond swirl anniversary band, both from Borsheims, add delicate sparkle.

(Above) The subtle browns of bare branches against a blue sky find their tabletop echo, with minimalist cutlery and metallic candleholders for just the right modern touch. In the centerpiece by Kearney Floral Co., deftly placed bright blooms pop among the fall hues in this elegant setting for two.

(Below) This pure white two-tier confection by Cake Expressions, Inc. is, well, pure perfection. No need for fancy décor; artfully draped linens and a floral accent keep it simple,
and simply beautiful.

(Above) The invitation suite by Dana Osborne Design captivates with soft ivories and an ethereal blue. Bold script pairs with a traditional font, with a floral envelope lining that delivers a splash of color, for a taste of things to come.

(Below) Details make the difference, as scalloped Deryn trim softens the bride’s romantic décolletage.

Long-Distance Couple Comes Together in October Wedding

It was Claire Svoboda and Ross Passmore’s jobs at a local gym that first brought them together. They met in May, and Ross was scheduled to be deployed the following January; they maintained their long-distance relationship for over 17 months and several different countries. After that, Claire says, “We feel like we could do anything.” When they finally reunited, they bought a home together and began planning their life. Soon after, Ross surprised Claire with a candle-lit marriage proposal. “I always joked that I didn’t want anything super-fancy or a bunch of people around, so it was really sweet,” says Claire.

On a cold October day, the bridal party stood at the handmade altar crafted just for the day by Claire’s father and adorned with silk flowers. The couple wrote their own vows and read them from a small book they will treasure forever. Family antiques and vintage tablecloths added more personal touches. Ross gave each of his groomsmen a beer boot engraved with their nicknames, and bridesmaids stayed warm in matching shawls. As the enchanting evening began, the couple had their first dance on the patio, illuminated by celebratory sparklers each guest held.

Pastel Autumn

 Perfect for a September wedding, this color palette of blush, rose and rustic brown has our hearts fluttering. We love the pale hues mixed with fall foliage and the white pumpkins add texture and interest to the decor.
