Welcome to my blog. On this page you will find articles I personally write about the photography industry and my work. You will also see blogs showing the photos from many of my photo sessions.
I’m looking at my calendar for the next couple months. It’s booked with weddings. More weddings than any other time of the year. It made me wonder why fall weddings are so popular.
Fall is undeniably one of the most desirable times of the year for couples planning a wedding. It’s cooler, the foliage is vibrant and practically everyone loves fall.
Here’s a few reasons why fall is a popular time for weddings:
One of the most beautiful parts of fall weddings is the stunning natural backdrop. As the leaves transition from lush greens to warm shades of red, orange, and gold, the scenery becomes a breathtaking canvas for wedding photography. The rich, earthy tones of fall create a warm and inviting atmosphere, making it easy for couples to incorporate these colors into their wedding décor, from bouquets to table settings.
Fall weather strikes a wonderful balance between the sweltering heat of summer and the frigid chill of winter. I had outdoor weddings this summer that left people fanning themselves and sweating. With cooler temperatures and lower humidity, fall provides an ideal climate for outdoor ceremonies and receptions. Couples can exchange vows in the open air without worrying about guests getting too hot or too cold, ensuring everyone’s comfort throughout the day.
Autumn offers endless opportunities for creative and unique wedding décor. From hay bales and pumpkins to cozy blankets and lanterns, couples can incorporate charming elements into their weddings that showcase the season’s rustic charm. Floral arrangements with sunflowers, dahlias, and mums can add a touch of warmth and elegance to any wedding setting.
Fall is a time to switch up food selections, and couples often take advantage of this by serving seasonal delicacies at their weddings. From pumpkin spice lattes to apple pies and hearty stews, fall-themed menus are a favorite among guests. The opportunity to savor delicious, comforting dishes adds another layer of charm to fall weddings.
There’s an undeniable romantic ambiance that fills the air during the fall season. The soft glow of sunset, the gentle rustling of leaves, and the opportunity for couples to cozy up under blankets or by a crackling fire all contribute to the intimate and amorous atmosphere of fall weddings.
In the world of wedding planning, fall has firmly established itself as one of the most popular seasons to tie the knot. With its captivating natural beauty, comfortable weather, unique décor opportunities, seasonal cuisine, cost-effectiveness, and romantic ambiance, it’s no surprise that couples continue to fall in love with fall weddings. Whether you’re planning your own special day or simply attending as a guest, the enchanting allure of a fall wedding is something that everyone can appreciate.
