“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” –Albert Camus

I LOVE that quote–maybe I like it so much because of where I live, but the fall in upstate New York and New England just can't be beat.

With the leaves turning gold, bright red and orange, it's natural that fall brides will follow nature's lead with deep, rich colors. And while that's a great look (and very timeless) I always appreciate when a bride does something a little off the beaten path and unexpected.

I think it's important for couples to remember that, regardless of the season, pick what you like and what feels right. That being said, if you want peonies in December be prepared to pay…seasonal flowers will always save you a bit (those smart summer brides–getting married when the flowers are in bloom)!

Check out these unexpected bouquets that these fall brides chose (one September bride and two October)!
