Leslie Price Shares How to Style an Impeccable Fall Wedding in the Berkshires
Pick the perfect palette: For me, trying to choose a favorite fall palette is like choosing a favorite child. Pretty much impossible. Katie and David’s wedding is a perfect example of how a soft pastel palette of champagne and dusty peach can translate to fall with a touch of gold shimmer. I think gold warms up any color and is obviously very on-trend at the moment. Favorite fall flowers: dahlias, anemone, chocolate cosmos, garden roses, ranunculus, hypericum berries.
Speak to the venue: The beauty of the Wheatleigh is that it requires very little ornamentation. For Katie and Dave’s garden ceremony, we used the existing yew tree as a focal point and softened it with ribbon and hanging flowers in fall tones. Simple and very romantic.
Embrace the season: Autumn foliage is always an easy and dramatic way to incorporate touches of fall into any event, but don’t forget about food and beverages. Try serving warm apple cider as guests arrive or butternut squash soup as a first course. Apple cider doughnuts and caramel apples make lovely fall favors. Textiles also help to set a fall tone. Fire pits with s’mores feel more like fall with warm wool blankets and Adirondack chairs. Velvet seat cushions or velvety ribbon accents are a great fall touch.
