I think I've found a new venue crush guys, Snow Moon Ranch in Michigan! Perfectly situation just a smidge up in elevation, allowing for a tree line view of Lake Michigan, sprawling Llama filled, thats right, Llama pastures, quaint little gardens, & one heck of a gorgeous old weathered gray barn, beautifully landscaped and punctuated by an ivy ladder covered tin silo. Morgan Randall & James Soares fell hard for Snow Moon Ranch and I can easily see why! Their fall wedding was wonderfully timed where the trees had just began to dance in the colors of deep reds & rich orange. Wanting to continue on with that earthy sort of color palette, bridesmaids were dressed in a mixed hue of minty jade while blooms were in lush rich burgundy red tones. A girl's best wedding friend, succulents, were included into the bouquets, while tall wispy reed like greens gave some height to the tented reception. Naturally no earthy fall wedding would be complete without some pumpkins as well, which in this case guided guests around the venue in the form of wood signs. Not to be outdone by her surroundings, Morgan was utterly stunning wearing her hair in a textured up do & body hugging lace gown from Allure. There are some many fun little elements to Morgan & James' wedding, you're going to love discovering them! Oh and Ps- I need this goober of a Llama in my life!!

Some couples break out into a cold sweat at the very thought of less then 9 months to a year to plan their wedding, not when it came to the 4 month engagement of Darla Gill & Philip Zelanak! Both Darla & Philip, being engineers, knew with their task master mentalities that they could pull off a summer wedding after only getting engaged a few months earlier in April, so why not! With the help of close friends & family the couple transformed Darla's parent's sprawling farm into their outdoorsy wedding dream. Special touches to the day included hand crafted handkerchief style napkins assembled by 6 people, shaping them into unique & playful folds. Wood made an appearance in a few ways at the wedding such as large thick cut wood slices upon which each member of the wedding party stood during the ceremony, which was in a wide open pasture next to one super gorgeous gigantic tree! Wood slices also served to elevate the different cakes at the dessert bar as well as the bases for the table's centerpieces of mason jar filled wild flowers. Darla & Philip are as adorable as can be and we must applaud the gorgeous outcome of only 4 months of planning!
You know the image I am referring to, its been making its way around the Pinterestsphere for sometime now. Hair done up in that just right textured loose braid do, perfectly wrapped flannel shirt paired with a full tulle skirt, all of which is highlighted by that gorgeous Look At Me back bow. The image we've all squirreled away some place for use in our fall/winter inspiration boards, for cold weather brides looking for a chic touch to their day, even fashionista dream girls who simply love the idea of a cozy flannel paired with a gigantic full skirt. We all love it, we each have our very own reasons for which piece is our favorite part, but do you know what makes it all come together and work so very well?
