We love creating gorgeous color palettes with our couples, and Tracey and Charlie’s autumn Savannah wedding was a dream come true! Since we are in the deep south, fall isn’t as lavish here. So we are always seeking a beautiful fall color palette and love to use unique color combinations. For this November wedding, we worked with Tara Skinner Events to create this perfectly detailed affair.

For the color palette, we started with an autumn sunset as our inspiration. We pulled in shades of marigold, cream, apricot, and berries. To accent this warm color palette, shades of soft sage were added with the bridesmaid’s dresses and paper. The pop of green sage balanced out the autumn caramel hues.

Tracy and Charlie were initially supposed to be married at Victory North, but the pandemic forced them to switch venues to Charlie’s family home on the water in Savannah. While it was a different location, it worked out flawlessly. The ceremony took place overlooking the water, with the most beautiful sunset that popped out after a day of rain. The ceremony arch was a statement piece! It was covered in flowers, with draping ivy and greenery that was tied into the reception.

Autumn-Inspired Flowers For a Coastal Savannah Wedding

Since the reception took place on the family’s property, we wanted to make sure the tent was exceptional. The large clear tent provided the guests with cover from the rain, while the strung lights and endless candles provided the softest glow. We hung greenery across the ceiling and created a focal point as guests walked inside. The tables were a mix of large farm tables with rounds, which made an intimate setting. The farm tables featured copper candlestick holders with cream candles. Clear bud vases and gold mercury glass added metallic touches to the reception and bar.

When it comes to designing a wedding, the florals are truly what tell the story. From the color palette to the texture to every little stem, flowers tie it all together. We turned a family property into a fall escape for Tracy and Charlie, complete with lush blooms and statement details. If you dream of a wedding like this one, we would love to work together! We can turn your dream into a floral experience that you, and your guest, will cherish!
