I still have a few more fall 2016 weddings to share with you, and this one is certainly one of the dreamiest! There's a lot to love about this gorgeous wedding... A unique altar, rich fall colors, a classic (and totally stunning) white bridal bouquet, a fairy tale bridal gown, and so much more. We loved all the amazing details of Alex and Zach's big day, and we're thrilled to show you these photos by the talented Meredith Melody Photography! Enjoy!
Alexandra and Zach were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on October 29, 2016. Their color palette was a beautiful, fall appropriate combination of orange and navy. "Zach's favorite color is orange, and the navy went well with it," Alex said. Their theme was elegant and perfect for fall, with a few rustic details mixed in. It was gorgeous!
One of my favorite details from this wedding was Alex's dress! It was from Low's Bridal, and it was truly a fairy tale bridal gown! I love the lace, the subtle beading, and the full skirt and train. "I also wore my Grandmother's necklace, earrings, and my diamond was hers as well," Alex said. You are such a lovely bride, Alex!
Alex's bridesmaids wore classic navy dresses (also from Low's Bridal), which were gorgeous with their orange, yellow and deep red bouquets. Zach and his groomsmen wore gray suits with orange ties.
For the bouquets and florals, Alex said she chose basic fall colors. "I never said which flowers to use, just to use imagination," she said. "My bouquet was all white garden roses with a hint of greenery. The boutonnieres were small with orange ranunculus and some greenery; Zach's was a small white garden rose. There was a combination of all fall colors and fall flowers, green berries, dahlias, ranunculus and pin cushions. I wanted there to be no white flowers on anyone but Zach and me."
Here's a pretty shot of Alex's bouquet! We love that she carried all white and Zach wore a white bout, while the rest of the bridal party carried and wore rich fall colors. We never get tired of a classic bridal bouquet! This one is so lovely!
Alex said her favorite details of the day were her flowers. "They were spot on to what I imagined but just couldn't make anyone see in my head," she said. "Everything was just so amazing though!"
It's no secret that I'm a sucker for first look photos, and these are so romantic! Alex said one thing she'll never forget about her wedding day was "when Zach was so excited to see me during our first look." These two are adorable! :)
Oh, how we loved Alex and Zach's altar! It started with a simple ivory drape and floral tiebacks in fall colors, but the greenery is what made it amazing! Their aisle was lined with logs topped with florals and lanterns with ribbons. This was such a sweet, beautiful ceremony with the most gorgeous fall backdrop. The Barn in late October is a dream!
Alex and Zach's reception was gorgeous, and the rich colors looked so pretty and elegant inside The Barn! Their tables included navy tablecloths, dark purple runners, lanterns with lit candles, and floral arrangements in the prettiest fall colors.
"I had a memory table for all of my loved ones that have passed," Alex said. "I had a small cross made of beads next to my cake, and my Grandmother also made that before she passed away."
Alex and Zach's cake was just as classic and beautiful as Alex's bridal bouquet! It was a simple white cake with white garden roses. The frosting was a little bit messy and rustic, and it was so pretty!
Alex and Zach shared their first dance before dancing with their parents, cutting their cake, tossing their bouquet and garter, and then having an epic dance party with their friends and family!
At the end of the evening, Alex and Zach had the prettiest grand exit - their guests threw deep red and orange flower petals as they left The Barn and headed to the Northeast for a romantic honeymoon! "We went to Maine and Boston," Alex said. "It was cold, but it was really amazing and we got to eat as much seafood as possible (until we were tired of it)!"
Alex and Zach, we adored your dreamy, gorgeous fall wedding! We are so thankful you chose The Barn as your wedding venue! We wish you two the very best! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
