{Real Weddings} Ashton & Michael’s Gorgeous Fall Fête

I am so excited to share today’s real wedding with you all… it doesn’t get much more up my alley.

The venue was personal, the decor was personal, the theme was personal… every little piece of this wedding represented who Ashton and Michael are as a couple (scroll down to the bottom for an awesome explanation from their photographers).  This is the way it should be.

… and it’s gorgeous to boot!  Just look at those flowers.

Oh, and by the way, this wedding was shot by the amazing husband and wife photography team, Scarlett & Stephen… if you think Ashton and Michael are cute, just take a look at them.  Here’s what Stephen had to say about this wedding…

From the first meeting I had with Ashton, she pulled out her wedding planning book (note to self, I still need to get one of those!) and showed me all the details she was putting together for her in-nature-themed wedding. Ashton and Michael love camping together and Michael even proposed on a camping trip, so the theme they wanted for their wedding was pulling in all things nature. Also, they chose to have their wedding at Stephen Foster State Park because Michael’s grandfather helped build the Florida Trail that goes from the top to bottom of Florida and runs through the Stephen Foster park too. The park also had a gorgeous old Southern plantation mansion in the middle of it that is now turned into a museum. I loved how organic this wedding was with burlap table details, spanish moss, and even the wedding cakes representing tree trunks. Also, for the altar, Ashton used her great-grandmother’s old lace drapes that her grandmother stitched together to bring some family history into the ceremony.
