Jim & Emily’s red & orange fall wedding is full of traditional elegance, and vibrant pops of color. Their wedding palette of orange & red, with touches of gold, was inspired by the beautiful fall leaves associated with fall. Emily kept it simple with classic clean details, and let her bridesmaids take center stage by dressing them in candy apple red floor-length gowns. Take a peek into their wedding day by viewing the beautiful images captured by JDHowell Photography below.
From the Bride, Emily:
How did you meet?
Jim and I met on a beautiful October afternoon at a local bar in East Lansing through mutual friends (Go Green!)
My dress was a Justin Alexander private collection that I found at small bridal salon called ‘The Wedding Shoppe’ in Berkley, MI.
Wedding Planning Details
I’m a simple person and I love the fall so I tried to keep the details to a minimum with a pop of color. Think fall leaves, so bits of red and orange with a hint of gold.
Since I kept decor to a minimum I wanted my Bridesmaids to stick out. I chose a candy apple red, strapless floor length dress from Davids Bridal for my beautiful girls!
What are some of your favorite memories of the day?
Of course marrying my best friend but also Our party bus between the ceremony and reception! It was the one part of the day we were able to let loose and relax a little since our bridal party had been with us all day, they were over all the hype!
Do You have any advice for other brides?
You’re favorite phrase should become ‘That’s a really nice idea!’ (said with a smile on your face). Bringing together two
families brings out a lot of different ideas and opinions. Instead of getting frustrated or annoyed because it’s not what you want or had planned, take each suggestion politely, think about it, and then make your decision!
Lastly — relax and enjoy it because ready or not, it comes and goes in the blink of an eye!
