Fall weddings in New England are our personal favorite to design, and we love creating florals that speak to the time of year, without being too literal with the pumpkins, ghouls, and goblins of the season. 😉 Whether your floral vision is garden, classic or natural, we’ve included some of our favorite ways to bring the beauty of autumn to any wedding style.
Create autumn florals with a textural twist.
Embracing fall tones through color and texture is a fun way to create your own spin on autumn. Allie and Zac wanted to create a natural, warm and cozy fall feeling with florals, while not being too literal to the fall season. We used a variety of unexpected greens and textures including Pampas Grass, Japonica Pieris and Cholocate Cosmos to bring in unexpected texture. Chocolate Cosmos is a dark burgundy flower that Allie fell in love with at the market (it smells like chocolate too!) so we featured it heavily in her bouquet. We also used touches of orange and burgundy as a nod to autumn without being blatantly obvious or too bright. Photography Jean Laurent Gaudy
A classic white wedding can still feel like autumn.
Eva and Kristopher wanted to a classic white, green and gold color palette for their wedding, while keeping an autumnal feel to their late September day. Eva is a personal chef, so we used seasonal fall fruits such as dates, figs, and pears to bring a warm, hearty and bountiful feeling to the tables. These textures also brought a warm, golden tone to the classic white and green palette. This translated to a lovely “late summer into autumn” feel, while remaining classic and timeless.

Adding foliage to any color palette can bring in the magic of autumn.
For Brittany + Bobby’s October wedding at the State Room, we designed using a color palette of coral, navy and green to bring in a modern garden feel, yet we incorporated seasonal foliage to ensure it still felt like a fall wedding. Dahlias are a seasonal flower which we featured throughout the floral design, coupled with deep orange and purple fall foliage. This created the feeling of autumn while maintaining a bright and garden-like color palette. Photography by Tiffany Von Photography.
