Fall In Love

Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons for a wedding.  Fall comes along with gorgeous weather, and spectacular scenery.  The color of the leaves changing in the trees, the delicious breezes that make the leaves fall in dazzling shades of red, brown, yellow, orange and green.  If planning a fall wedding, take advantage of the amazing photo opportunities in the outdoors that nature will provide for you.  Do not be afraid to embrace natures backdrop.  Imagine the leaves falling all around you, the subtle wind whisping through your hair as your photographer snaps memories to last a life time on your big day.

Prepare prepare prepare! During the chillier days in the season there can be unpredictable weather.  It is important to make sure you have all your bases covered, especially when it comes to photos.  Remember that your photos are memories some candid, some posed, but all so beautiful and that you get to cherish for the rest of your lives.  So needless to say, photos are crucial on your big  day

Consider fall patterned coverups for you and your bridesmaids, for example shawls to wrap around your shoulders to make for cute photos and to keep you from being chilly if the air is crisp that day.  This can also double as a gift for your wedding party.  During this time you should consider comfortable footwear to change into as you may be trapsing through slippery wet leaves and grass.  I recommend designating one person from your wedding party to stash umbrellas somewhere in case of a change in weather.  Again preparation is key ladies!

Choose fall themed games that can be played inside or outdoors depending on weather, such as pumpkin tic tac toe, pumpkin chess and even pumpkin bowling!  These can keep guests entertained perhaps during cocktail hour or while taking a break from the dance floor ALL while embracing the fall season!

Finally let’s talk about the absolutely gorgeous flowers that are available to us in autumn,  Two of my personal favorites the ever so elegant but classic Sunflowers and Roses.  Followed by Carnations, Freesia, Juniper, Marigold, Salvia, Aster, Dahlia, Zinnia and Chrysanthemums.  Luckily for us we are given an array of beautiful flowers in season to choose from to make any bouqet or arrangement fall color themed and brilliant!

Summer Wedding Ideas

Summer is the most popular season for weddings.  Beautiful weather and sunshine allowing you to capture your very special moments to last a life time.  Experiencing your dream day at an outdoor venue is one of the most attractive parts of a summer wedding. Here at Lippincott Manor our grounds are in full bloom with dazzling views of wild flowers, open fields complete with mountainous views.  Let’s not forget to mention the brilliant river scenery and full green trees coming into season.

As your guests arrive for your beautiful ceremony to come, consider placing a refreshing beverage station that your friends and family will pass on their way in.  This has become quite popular for a summer wedding.  Beverages such as tea’s or lemonade, or even an infused water.  While guests are taking their seats it may be beneficial for them to have a cool tasty drink in the hot summer heat.

While the summer weather is gorgeous the sun can be awfully bright, and you want nothing to dull your shine on YOUR big day.  A great idea would be to set up a bin of sunglasses for your guests to shade their eyes from the bright daylight during your ceremony, and their tears.  Allowing everyone to take in your beauty and the gorgeous  atmosphere of the day that has brought them all together.

As your ceremony concludes and you and your guests part ways for a short time before you are introduced as the new Mr. & Mrs, think of all the moments your guests are capturing on their phones or cameras.  Photos of your friends and family, photos of your fabulous wedding decor, your table settings and linens.  This may be a fitting time to consider small photo props that your guests can have fun with while snapping away eagerly awaiting your arrival!

Explore the bright popular colors of summer when choosing a color theme! Such as beautiful pinks and fucshia’s, golds and sky blues.  Citrus colors such as tangerine and yellows, even aqua and pale lilac!  The possibilities when choosing color a theme for a summer wedding are seemingly endless.  The summer season offers beautiful flowers to choose from with pops of bright colors.  To name a few popular flowers in season there is the classic sun flower so bright and beautiful, freesia’s and stocks in breath taking purples just to name a few.

Mull over the idea of a bin of inexpensive various colored flip flops for your lady guests to slip into and get out onto the dance floor and boogie with you and your loved ones.  After all this is a time for celebration!

Inspiration Spotlight: Sunset Photo Shoot

When creating your perfect wedding, there are many plans that are made, rentals that are brought in, decorative items that are purchased, and flowers that are snipped, clipped and perfectly placed — all to be set up to create a beautiful space with the perfect ambiance for your special day. And while all of these things seem to be essential to decorating a wedding celebration, we want to take some time to focus on certain setting elements that cannot be purchased. Specifically, the naturally beauty of an amazing sunset.

You’ve probably paid for a photographer to capture all of those beautiful moments of your day. Every photographer knows the power of good lighting and the amazing shot that can be captured at dusk. At this time of day, you cannot predict what will happen. Every sunset is different and unique. From the shape of the clouds to the color of the sky, a photo at this time of day is guaranteed to take your breath away.

If you have a chance to sit and talk with your photographer before your wedding day, you’ll be able to discuss certain photos that you would like to have taken. Be sure to discuss a sunset photo. Ask him or her about taking some time in the evening for a mini-session with the setting sun — you’ll be glad you did. If you have chosen to have your wedding at an outdoor venue with already amazing views, such as Lippincott Manor, then it will be easy as pie to get this memorable shot. If you are indoors, just make sure that you pay attention to the time of day and get outside when the sun starts to go down. This photo will only take a few minutes to shoot, but it will be well worth it when you have it to cherish forever.
