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.

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 wedding party walked down the aisle to the sounds of a flute, violin and cello trio courtesy of Millennium Music. Bridesmaids wore chocolate-brown floor-length dresses by Delianne Bridal & Formal Wear and carried hand-tied bouquets of roses, hypericum berries and dried autumn leaves by J&J Gardens.
