A wedding celebrates the anniversary of one couple's first date

Shannon knew she wanted to marry Patrick in the fall, her favorite season—not just because of the colors, smells and crisp weather, but it’s when she and her groom began dating. Fittingly, their September wedding took place the exact weekend of their anniversary. The couple emphasized the season with a gold, cream and brown color scheme, and decorated the reception with pumpkins, mums and candles.

The groom’s elegant boutonniere featured a single red rose paired with hypericum berries to match Shannon’s bouquet, while the groomsmen sported simple boutonnieres of berries and eucalyptus. All flowers were provided by J&J Gardens.
