Fall Wedding Inspiration: A Rustic Romance in the Vines

For those of you who may not know, Robert and I were married at the lovely Ponte Winery in November 2008. 

We always enjoy visiting Ponte Winery.  Whenever we need a break from all the chaos that is life in the OC and LA, Ponte is a great place to head, to get back to nature and just relax.

Recently, Kerry Pulverman of de Luxe Weddings & Events invited us to participate in a photo shoot with her.  Below are the photos from the tablescape Robert and I  like to call: A Rustic Romance in the Vines.

I figure many of our Fall brides are currently working on their themes and floral design, so I thought this might give you some inspiration to draw from.  Of course, when your wedding rolls around you will have the gorgeous Autumn leaves of red, orange, yellow, and green.  Rob and I just adored the look of the vineyard for our November wedding.  There is really nothing like it.

We would like to give a special thanks to Kelly Manson of  The Olive Rose for her beautiful Fall inspired floral design and kind collaboration.  

To learn more about the design behind the shoot, check out Kerry's Blog.

I can just imagine a romantic guy proposing to a super lucky girl, while we hide behind the Fall leaves hanging from the vines and sneak in a few photographs of the Engagement.

How much more romantic can it get being all alone out among the vines and the beautiful surrounding landscape?
To create a Fall feel, Kerry chose chocolate brown and silver linens.  Kelly chose to complement that with florals of orange and red tones, with hints of yellow and green.

Fresh flowers such as Cymbidium Orchids make a nice adornment to your napkins and charger plates.

Below are a couple of Robert's Artistic edits.  We love to create custom edits to transform those photos into more dramatic pieces.

I love Rob's interpretation of this photo.  The Rustic tones of this photo truly complement the theme of this tablescape.
