Autumn Al Fresco

Real Bride Stories
The postcard scenery and smells of maple everywhere make fall an easy season to love! And if you’re one of the lucky couples to have a September, October, or November wedding, there are countless venues where you can soak up the autumn air all while you and your guests eat, dine, and dance the night away! From East to West, here are five of the best outdoor spaces to make it official!
Everything about Colorado says fall fantasy, and Crooked Willow Farms is no exception! With a few different spaces on the expansive property, your autumnal dreams will come to life as you say your “I Do’s” on the breathtaking lawn, overlooking the Rocky Mountains. Continue your celebrations in a rustic ballroom with sliding barn doors that keep the views and the fresh air going strong! And in the understated Kassandra gown, you can channel your inner mountain-goddess with a natural waist, high neck, and thick satin finish.
In the quaint town of Beacon, in foliage-filled Upstate New York, The Roundhouse Hotel is an industrial meets sleek and modern space. But it’s the patio that overlooks the lush waterfall and flowing creek that really caught our eye. Especially when we imagine the ceremony and cocktail hour covered with an array of burnt orange and red leaves, a backdrop that is giving us all the fall feels! And while we’re daydreaming, we couldn’t help but picture the Lareina fit and flare gown, with a low scooped back and vintage-inspired beading, floating down the aisle amidst the colorful autumn landscape.
Under sunny skies, why not soak up fall in California by making the most of its incredible Pacific Ocean views and beautiful weather. The Terranea Resort looks like the perfect paradise to gather family and friends to celebrate your nuptials—on top of incredible bluffs—as the waves crash behind you! And of course, there are those oceanside pictures you’ll be posing for! We love the airy energy of the soft English net skirt and appliquéd long sleeves of the Reagan gown for a fall-esque Malibu glam look.
When you think of Maine, summer probably comes to mind. But when you take a look at the rolling countryside hills and towers of trees blazing in autumn colors at the Falmouth Country Club near Portland, you’ll probably start to reconsider! You can’t ask for anything more than a celebration under the stars in a tented space right in the center of everything nature has to offer! To bring the ethereal vision to life the Marisol, a sheath stunner, has a whimsical illusion neckline, lace appliquéd bodice, and a light crepe skirt.
This list just wouldn’t be complete without a rooftop affair where you can find all that fall has to offer while looking down on the sparkle and bright lights of a big city! And that’s why Morgan’s on Fulton in Chicago seems like such a winner. With a rooftop penthouse decorated with a garden perimeter and wooden panels to host your festivities, there’s autumn charm written all over it! To complete the city chic look, the Rooney’s cathedral length train and pleated ballgown skirt will make a dramatic entrance, while the off-the-shoulder neckline adds just the right amount of romance!
