Fall Wedding Inspiration

 

It was such a joy to help one of our nearest and dearest plan her wedding, which took place on a chilly day last November at Tuckahoe Plantation. Brittany has worked with me for more than five years as my lead production assistant, and as you might expect we’ve been planning her wedding for some time. (Maybe before she found the groom? shhh!) To see more of the details and get the full scoop, pop over to Martha Stewart Weddings!

I’m over the moon for my friend Maria’s pretty table featured this month in Southern Living. Such a striking combination of colors and textures. The paper goods were designed by Suann at Simplesong Design. Flowers by Sidra Forman. Photography by Jennifer Davick.

I think fall might be my favorite time of year, and nothing is better than autumn in Charlottesville, Virginia, where we shot this table last year.

Cozy fall table covers

Friday, September 25th, 2009

This time of year is all about cozy, warm blankets. How about giving them new life as table covers for a fall fete?

fall color inspiration

Monday, April 13th, 2009

I love the rich mustard-colored ochre with warm reds and hints of coral orange for a fall bride. Balance these bold colors with touches of black and a warm neutral.
