fall wedding

Do you love the sound of autumn leaves crunching beneath your feet? What about the sight of sugar maples blushing bright crimson under a blue sky? Or the smell of a forest when its floor is covered in layers of fallen leaves?

There’s no better time of year to get married than the fall.

Autumn theme weddings are popular with couples that love this time of year.

Here are some ideas for creating an autumn theme wedding:
