Before we unleash the goodness that is the V5 editorials beginning next week, we wanted to sneak in one more shoot that was submitted to us! This one, dreamed up by Dogwood Events and jem events, is just perfect for this time of year — warm and rustic, with deep, beautiful colors. Big thanks to Djijo Studios for the lovely photos, too!

An apple cider bar – YUM! I love the apples in the centerpieces, too!

Cinnamon sticks at each place setting would smell amazing, wouldn’t they? Big impact for such an inexpensive detail.

A little more from the planner and stylist:

This October, we got together with an amazing team of wedding professionals for a fun vintage rustic fall inspiration shoot at Riverside on the Potomac in Leesburg, VA. We wanted to show engaged couples that you can create a relaxed, rustic look for your wedding that can still look elegant and won’t end up breaking the bank. We searched for a location that not only had a gorgeous barn, but gorgeous landscaping and views as well. With a renovated barn overlooking the Potomac River and endless amounts of photo opportunities, Riverside on the Potomac was the perfect location for us to shoot.

Thanks again, y’all!

    Love the apples! Any combination of fruit, nuts, berries wheat, or corn would honor my dad. I`m a little long in the tooth to do such but even I can dream. Sure did enjoy these flowers! Thanks for the memories.

Meghan + Michael’s wedding is after my own heart. An outdoor ceremony under a giant tree AND guests were greeted with hot apple cider? If that’s not Southern hospitality, then what is? After some sweet vows were exchanged, the newlyweds and their friends and family settled down for a reception on the lawn of Glenview Mansion, planned by SW favorite Atrendy Wedding. We are a teensy bit jealous that we weren’t able to play corn hole and nibble on s’mores on a stick and mini creme brulee, but these photos by Kate Headley absolutely make up for it. I adore Meghan + Michael’s casual-but-cute getaway outfits and ribbon streamers. They look marvelous in the afternoon light!

Could these bouquets by Holly Chapple Flowers be any more perfect for a fall wedding?

Describe the proposal. I was living in Florida at the time and Michael was living back home in Maryland. I knew he was planning to fly down and visit me over my birthday, but instead, he surprised me by flying down a few days earlier and popping the question! He proposed at night by the pond near my house, surrounded by candlelight. Afterward, my closest friends surprised me with an engagement party and showered us with love and excitement.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Shabby chic, sweet and detailed
In what month did you get married? October
How many guests attended your wedding? 145
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: There were so many to choose from, but I loved the ceremony site. We had so many beautiful flowers all around and guests were greeted with beautiful music and hot apple cider as they arrived.
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? We had our wedding and reception outside at a beautiful vintage mansion in Maryland. Guests enjoyed lawn games during the cocktail hour. Our reception we held under a beautiful open tent.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I had tried on several dresses but nothing was wowing me. I saw an image of a gorgeous lace dress at a bridal store but they didn’t carry the dress. I went online and searched for the gown and found a bridal shop that had it in store! As soon as I put it on, I knew it was the perfect dress and that it would fit my outdoor, shabby chic wedding.
Describe your wedding flowers: Color, color, color. I wanted to incorporate all the beautiful colors of autumn. My bouquet had purple, orange, red, yellow and green flowers. Each of my bridesmaids bouquets were made up of one type of flower from my bouquet.
Describe your wedding cake or dessert: Our wedding cake was three-tiered red velvet cake with chocolate ganache and spiced apple with cinnamon icing. It had fresh flowers cascading down one side.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? The biggest challenge we faced was accommodating all of our family member’s wishes. There were some conflicting ideas that were difficult to work through.
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? The wedding planner. She was so helpful throughout the entire process. She saved me so much time and stress and it was a huge blessing not to have to worry about anything the day of the wedding.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Walking down the aisle and seeing each other for the first time. It was a special moment that neither one of us will ever forget.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We currently work together for a non-profit organization and we will be relocating to Washington, D.C. We are hoping that in the future our jobs will take us overseas full-time and that we will begin a family there.

I know y’all already love everything Chelsea from Southern Fried Paper touches, correct? (Yep, just check out our first Ultimate Southern Challenge, where her sweet tea escort cards were a finalist!) That’s why I just know you ladies are going to die over the inspiration shoot I have for you today. It’s 100% Southern, and 100% state fair inspired. What could be more perfect as we head into fall? (I don’t know about y’all, but I am DEFINITELY looking forward to the North Carolina State Fair, which opens on October 13!) Enjoy these lovely photos from N Barrett Photography, and read on for the story behind this fun shoot!

From Chelsea:

“Fall is here, which means everyone is gearing up for Fair season! We were so inspired by the fun and excitement of the State Fair of Texas that we created an entire styled shoot around it. We used a warm color palette of yellow, orange, pink and red throughout the design.

We built an awning to shade the sweets bar and decorated it with handmade paper pinwheels and bunting. Sugar Bee Sweets designed a delicious yellow buttercream cake, accented with cascading fondant ribbons. In addition to the pies, cake, and plethora of candy there were corn dogs, pretzels and popcorn for guests wanting to snack on something savory.

The head table was “picnic chic” with a red and white table cloth, hand painted plates, and stunning floral by Bows and Arrows. Tall glass pillars were filled with popcorn and topped with pomanders made of ruffled carnations and cymbidium orchids. Smaller arrangements of dahlias and chamomile were placed in paper wrapped vintage cans. Each cocktail glass had a pennant-wrapped paper straw that doubled as a place card and each plate was topped with a mini cherry or pecan pie.

The bride held an ombre Biedermeier ranunculus bouquet with vintage velvet ribbon and wore a three tiered tulle gown by Rosa Clara.

The playful save the date by Southern Fried Paper showcased a state fair classic: the corn dog. It was backed with red gingham. The invitation featured cheery yellow stripes and vintage typography.”


The vendors who brought it all together:

Stationery and Paper Decor: Southern Fried Paper // Photography: N Barrett Photography // Cake and Sweets: Sugar Bee Sweets // Floral: Bows & Arrows // Hair, Makeup, and Wardrobe Styling: Something You Makeup Artistry // Rentals: Ducky-Bob’s // Wedding Gown: Rosa Clara
