The pair tied the knot on a crisp October day at Crossed Keys Estate, a country-style inn with a picturesque tree-lined driveway and manicured gardens. They embraced the spirit of the season by choosing an autumnal color palette with rich hues like burgundy, yellow, and orange, and found antique-inspired décor that fit with their charming aesthetic. The result was a quaint and cozy ceremony and reception that spoke both to the season and their unique love story.

The bride wore a timeless strapless lace gown and heirloom jewelry while her groom wore a gray suit and seasonally inspired boutonniere with berries and wax flowers. For couples grappling with the idea of a first look, Shannon and Matt will prove why it's totally worth it. Just take a second look at the pure joy on the bride and groom's faces when they meet beneath a weeping tree for a private and personal shared moment before the ceremony — that sweet moment alone will convince you to carve out some time with your significant other before you say I do.
Despite the cool fall day, this duo exchanged vows on the property's lush lawn with a vintage mantle decked out with mums, ornamental cabbage and kale, and plenty of gourds. In keeping with their seasonal theme, the pair swapped flower petals for freshly fallen leafs for their own take on a recessional toss. But the beauty doesn't end there. Their fun-filled reception, which featured rustic wooden details and plenty of glowing globe lights, was just as stunning as their open-air ceremony.
