As a member of the bridal party I was unable to get all the photos that I wanted for my blog. These are from the photographer Jesse Boone from Finest Moments Photography. The Above photo was taken on the East 9th Pier looking over Lake Erie. Below, the cameo on the bride’s bouquet was from her grandmother, a fantastic was to incorporate something old or borrowed. Enjoy these photos of the most beautiful fall wedding.

Make a seasonal center piece with fruit, greenery and flowers from your yard. (or your neighbor’s.) Simply place your findings in a bowl of water and arrange the way you like. When styling the center piece remember to group things in threes or odd numbers. Symmetry is not always pleasing to eye! Floral foam & picks are ideal but not necessary, as the life expectancy of your clippings may be short.
As you know just about anything your heat desires can be found on Etsy, but did you know they have furniture too? These photos are from SpruceHome, a great shop that sells refurbished vintage furniture. Please peruse their shop, I feel sure you will fall in love with their combination of carved wood and ultra-modern graphic prints. Even if you have no room in your home (or wallet) for these pieces, you can choose one as a muse for your next project.
