This Sunday is the Autumnal Equinox and we’re sure that you have already started to feel it coming. With the crisp mornings and the quick drop in temperature with the setting sun, you’ve probably noticed that Fall is on its way. And if the weather isn’t enough of an indicator for you, then if you have ventured out to the local grocery store, coffee shop, or even bar then you have probably noticed the emergence of pumpkin-flavored everything!
With all that said, may we now announce that FALL IS HERE! What an exciting time of the year. Fall is a time for the senses. Aside from the plentiful pumpkin flavorings for your palate to choose from, your eyes are treating to Mother Nature’s show with the changing of the leaves. Fall also has a certain smell that some may crave year-round. And there is no better place to experience the amazing colors than here in the Hudson Valley. People from far and wide floods the small streets of the area to come and see the scenery of the Shawangunk Mountains dressed up on its orange, red, yellow leaves.
The scenery is beautiful and the weather is cool and refreshing and this is just a wonderful time of year for a wedding. Given the colors that are naturally landscaping the area, weddings now have a beautiful backdrop for some amazing photos. Fall-time weddings are often decorated to coordinate with the foliage with rich, earthy tones like oranges, deep yellows, greens, browns that can be complemented with rich ruby or deep eggplants accents. The color palette of many weddings takes on new life during this time of year that translates into a sophisticated looking event. For the rustic-inspired Fall event, gourds, pumpkins, and changing leaves can be incorporated into an event’s décor.
So enjoy some apple cider, or some pumpkin doughnut – after all, Tis the Season!
