Each year, our fall wedding season books nearly a year in advance. The temperate weather combined with the stunning changing of the leaves makes Northern Virginia the perfect location for couples with a fall wedding vision. Many of the reasons that fall is a popular time to wed in Virginia, is that the outside scenery is so beautiful, photo opportunities are nearly unlimited, and ceremonies can be comfortably held outside. In addition to the scenery, the crisp air lends itself well to outdoor cocktails, boasting fire pits, lawn games, wine, beer, and even the occasional cigar bar!
Although fall has just officially started, at J. Morris Flowers we shift our focus to fall designs the first week of September (which you can see through our new studio window design). Each season ushers in a refreshing new floral palette, and while we enjoyed all of the beautiful spring and summer weddings, as the weather starts to cool, we look forward to shifting from bright palettes to romantic fall colors.
One of the main reasons we love fall in our studio is that many of the floral styles and colors blend seamlessly with the stunning ceremony spaces at many of our local Loudoun County Virginia wedding venues. This year, our studio is placing a lot of focus on what we call “soft” fall colors. While the traditional fall color palette of maroon, brown, and orange still remains popular, our studio has softened this palette for many of our fall couples by recommending creams, blush pinks, dusty greys, silver greenery, corals and coppers. For those looking to maintain ties to the traditional pumpkins of October and November, we offer a beautiful cream pumpkin floral vessel used for centerpieces. If you are not planning a wedding, but have a special occasion, or someone you want to surprise, our daily Autumn floral arrangements follow this same style and can be easily purchased on our website and delivered locally for a small delivery fee.
