Fall Weddings

Fall, what a perfect time to plan a wedding.  Brides not having to worry about shiny faces, makeup running, or frizzy, falling hair.  Nor do they have to deal with the unpredictable snow and ice storms.  Just clean crisp air and bright colors of the fall foliage.  As family and friends come home for the holidays, the thought of planning a warm, intimate, and fairytale wedding this time of year is as breathtaking, as the season itself.

Here in Columbia, there are so many historical monuments, churches, mills, and even barns to consider when looking for a venue.  One of my favorite outside venues is the Robert Mills House and Garden.   "Surrounded by old oak trees, sprawling green lawns, and with a 100 year old Magnolia on the back lawn, the grounds of the Robert Mills House is a sight to behold."  Imagine yourself, a fairytale princess on your wedding day, strolling down the garden of the Robert Mills House with its pebbled walkways, well manicured shrubs, and blooming flowers, a breathtaking beauty. 

Using the warm, rich, non-traditional and traditional colors of fall such as light blue, beige, brown, rusty orange, and metallic jewel tones will add an elegant and unique touch to your fall wedding scenery and add a soft romantic aroma to the atmosphere as well.  Including white and blue pumpkins will also add a unique flavor to the scenery. 

Whatever theme you decide when planning your fairytale wedding this fall, remember, it's the small details that count.  Make sure you think carefully about the little touches that you can either add or eliminate to make your big day one that you will remember and cherish for a lifetime.  And,
remember, "Life if not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

Happy wedding planning!
