Kettle Pot Paper deep purple wedding invitation suite with Laced in Letters calligraphy for this dreamy fall garden wedding

This is the most dreamy fall garden wedding that any fall bride needs to see! It’s full of rich fall tones with bursts of color everywhere you look. The bride, being a former wedding planner, used her bright personality and created this ethereal fall scene. From the floral arch for the ceremony to the romantic clear top tent reception, it’s full of fall wedding inspiration!

Melissa and Culen are the sweetest couple. I remember sitting down with Melissa, meeting her for the first time a few months before her wedding, and feeling like I was hanging with an old friend. She’s such a gentle soul with a way of making everyone around her feel comfortable. Fast forward to the wedding day, when I met Culen, and I could instantly see why these two are meant to be. They compliment each other so beautifully and are so natural together. The way they looked each other, with the most endearing eyes and heartfelt love, I’ll never forget it!

Thank you guys so much for letting us be part of your day! For trusting me to bring your picture vision to life and document the most special of moments! So glad to call you my friends!

Their dreamy fall garden wedding was so perfect that it was featured on Grey Likes a few weeks ago!! One of the biggest wedding blogs around!
