Purples and pinks and the Seven Sisters in the background: a fall wedding in Amherst

We loved the flowers and received so many compliments from our guests!

Sophie and Dane got married in Sophie’s grandmother’s backyard, which sounds sweet, right? And when Grandma’s backyard abuts the Holyoke Range state park, you get a view for days – a perfect backdrop for their family and friend-filled wedding. Something doubly sweet: Sophie’s parents were married in that same backyard!

This wedding is a perfect example of a fall wedding with almost 100% seasonal blooms, but whose colors were anything but “seasonal.” September on my farm is full of all the colors, and I was thrilled that Sophie wanted purples and pinks and whites – I had plenty!

bridal bouquet
Sophie wanted her bouquet to be pinks and purples and whites and seasonal, and I was happy to oblige. Her bouquet features dahlias, lisianthus, asters, salvia, cosmos, feverfew, and dusty miller, all grown by me, with a few roses and eucalyptus as well.  Photo by Nystedt Photography

wedding cake
The cake flowers were all grown by me – I think it’s important to use only chemical-free flowers on a wedding cake. Me growing them means that is always the case. Photo by Nystedt Photography
Congratulations to the happy couple! The wedding was gorgeous, but now for the best part: your marriage! Photo by Nystedt Photography
