Hi lovelies, Emma here! Ah, it’s Friday in the fall and I have a hot cup of coffee in hand… you can say I’m happy as can be! Even though today is an unusually rainy and sticky day, fall is my absolute favorite time of year. And I promise I won’t start spouting off about pumpkin spice everything and jeans and sweater weather and boots (even though I do enjoy all of the above). I’m more in love with nature at its peak this time of year. The colorful trees. The crisp air. Andrew and I have been spending our evenings running (after) little Andrew in fields of wildflowers, through grassy knolls, and on sandy beaches as we take in the last few minutes of sun before it dips down at the water’s edge. His little hands are filled with rocks and leaves, treasures he has found and fully intends to keep. His other hand reaches out for mine with a smile on his face, and I take it as he leads me through playgrounds and grassy fields at full speed. Having a child gives you fresh eyes: everything is new and an exciting adventure. Through him, I’ve gained a new appreciation for the little wonders in daily life, so this time of year is especially eye-opening. There is so much to see. Anyway, I digress. Mamas will do that from time to time. ;)
Today we’re featuring some nature themed wedding ideas inspired by branches, twig, and vines. Fall weddings are extremely popular because Mother Nature chips in on some pretty serious decorating. ;) She takes care of the chilly but crisp air, romantic woodsy ceremonies, and jaw-dropping pops of orange, gold, and red on the trees. If you’re planning a fall wedding and want to include some handmade finds, you’ll love this post. We’ve rounded-up gold branch hair accessories, twig engagement rings, a unique nest inspired ring pillow, a must-see bouquet, and more. Browse our handpicked finds below and tell us: what’s your favorite?
