Autumn. It’s that time of the year when the leaves have turned gorgeous hues of yellow and brown, and that slight chill in the air reminds you that the holidays are just around the corner. Living in Florida, I almost never get the opportunity to experience it, but anytime I can at least see it, I get excited. Captured by Jill Coursen Photography, this chic crimson and sapphire autumn wedding is absolutely beautiful in today’s DIY wedding feature. Now, I have to just go ahead and say it. This wedding is so pretty, that you will want to change your wedding colors even before you get through all the amazing photos. Grab your box of tissues ladies, because this wedding is sure to bring tears to your eyes as you see how these two love birds say I do in Edmonton, Alberta.
Not only do their DIY details look amazing, but this couple pulled off their November wedding in style. Danielle and Graham put some major time and energy into creating so many wonderful items for their autumn wedding day. This cute and crafty couple made their fireplace reception decor, cake table decor, plant favors for their guests, and centerpieces with the help of their friends and family. It is always such a big help to have the support and extra hands of your family when you are getting crafty for your wedding. Once you see all these photos, I know you’ll want to pin every photo to your new autumn wedding pinterest board because you’re sure to want a wedding like this too.
Well girls, you know I’m a sucker for love and proposal stories. Before we dive into these ‘sure to leave you smitten’ photos, let’s find out how the bride said yes at what the bride calls their engagement-honeymoon!
How did Graham propose?
“We’d known each other since high school and had been dating for five years. Over the summer, we went on a road trip to Seattle stopping to visit friends and camp along the way. We had just checked into our hotel room in Seattle and were admiring the view of the space needle from our window, when Graham got all serious and asked me to marry to him. After I obviously said yes, he told me how it hard it had been to wait until we got there to ask, and that he had almost popped the question a dozen times on our way there. We then referred to the rest of our trip as our engagement-honeymoon, and it was one of the most fun trips ever.” – Danielle
