Melissa and Max's wedding was a cozy event for a rainy day. Warm candlelight, strings of lights and lush arrangements made for a pretty interior, while the endless windows of the Knowlton Mansion let guests look with comfort at the drizzling pitter patter showering the outside. Viva Love Photography rolled with the punches with the overcast day, never skipping a beat as they captured stunning portraits of the couple nestled together under an umbrella, looking happy and in love.
Take a look at these romantic fall arrangements and decor for Melissa & Max's wedding, below.
Melissa's tiny frame made her large bouquet to look even more overgrown. The cascading form gave her the whimsical theme she requested, while the blush, red, burgundy and green tones made it look like something out of a forest. We love the pop of orange for Max's bout - it creates the perfect focal point to draw the eye in these artsy images.
Melissa's bridesmaids' bouquets may have been small, but there was no shortage of texture with the mix of roses, ranunculus, dahlias, eucalyptus and stock.
We draped ivory curtains around the Knowlton Mansion's pergola for the couple's ceremony space for a clean yet romantic backdrop. Gorgeous floral sprays embraced the rest of the fall tones, with deep burgundy dahlias, red astilbe, hydrangea, roses, stock and greenery.
This reception space is a knockout. The clean lines of the beams and smooth floor makes it an open canvas for clients to decide how they want to design their event, and Melissa & Max took full advantage.
The reception details were endless, with brass candlesticks, gold terrariums and gold compote centerpieces all coming together to create the whimsical, romantic scene that Melissa envisioned in her planning.
Sometimes we can't decide which we prefer - the intimacy of a sweetheart table, or the commanding beauty of a doing a decked out head table. In instances like this, it definitely tips the scale towards head table!
Small clusters of flower heads were all this gorgeous tiered wedding cake needed for an extra pop.
Congratulations, Melissa & Max! May you continue to keep each other warm on rainy days!
