When fall is your favorite season, why not revel in it? That’s exactly what Jenna and Michael Foster did for their October nuptials: “From the invitations to the flowers, centerpieces, wedding cake and décor, every detail of our wedding represented the true essence of fall,” says the bride.
Jenna embraced the planning process, personalizing each decision with individualized touches. Deciding on a theme of “elegance” meets “country rustic,” the couple ensured that each detail fit their desired look.
“With our mutual love of antique hunting, we set our sights on centerpieces that would bring a rustic touch to each and every table,” describes Jenna. “After our first trip to the Rhode Island Antique Mall, we found exactly what we were looking for: old milk jugs, brass pails, antique pitchers, boxes and crates. These finds allowed each and every table to have its own distinctive charm.”
Similarly, the couple infused fall color and motifs into their stationery designs by The Paper Perfectionist, cake by Something Different Cake Couture and floral designs by Golden Gate Studios. They even introduced fall scents via Yankee Candle sampler favors, adorned with leaf-shaped escort cards.
After attending a friend’s wedding at the venue, Jenna and Michael were drawn to the Ledgemont Country Club in Seekonk, Mass., for its homespun comfort and warmth. Besides its golf course surroundings, it offered a cozy cocktail hour space and a ballroom for dinner and dancing. Working together, Jenna and her mother created fall-themed décor vignettes throughout the club.
And nothing says fall more than hay bales, pumpkins and mums, which is why the couple’s decision to site their portraits at R & R Farms in Seekonk was ideal. “I decided to don my favorite cowboy boots and take advantage of all the photo ops the farm had to offer, especially the John Deere tractor!” says the bride. “Even though my husband and I are opposites when it comes to music (I’m a little bit country and he’s a little bit rock ‘n roll), R & R was a fun surprise and a unique highlight for the whole wedding party.”
