Fall Wedding Cakes

Fall is here, and with it comes delicious fresh seasonal fruits like figs, pears, apples, pomegranates, persimmons, clementines and cranberries. A great way to incorporate the flavors of fall into your wedding is to use them in your wedding cake - whether literally decorating the cake, or tucked away inside under fondant, buttercream or ganache. I rounded up some of my favorite fall wedding cakes today to inspire fall brides and lovers of fall alike.

Inspiration Board: Horseshoes & Apples

The leaves on the trees in our yard, neighborhood, around our town and the state of Oregon officially look like fall. So I thought it was time for a fall inspiration board! This one was done by the talented Kathryn of Snippet & Ink, and features an amazing fall color palette with great ideas for a fall wedding. Some people think of fall as a dead time as everything starts to loose its bloom, but another way to think of it is of a celebration of harvest - your love has bloomed and you are celebrating your wedding, aka the harvest of the fruits of your love. (Super corny, I know, but also sentimental, symbolic and true).

French Inspired in Santa Barbara

How gorge was this French-inspired shoot put together by Joy de Vivre, Florette Designs, Sweet & Saucy Shop and Michael and Anna Costa featured last week on Style Me Pretty?? The elegant, slightly vintage look is right up my alley, and the neutral table linens and chairs really let the lush soft florals, mercury glass and pewter table accents stand out. And the real star has to be the almost-too-pretty to eat cake by Sweet & Saucy Shop. Overall, this whole shoot has some major w-o-w factor.

Real Wedding: Whimsical Garden Party in Oregon

As soon as I laid eyes on this bright, whimsical wedding, I knew I had to share it! Christin and Matthew wanted a whimsical garden party theme for their Sauvie Island, Oregon wedding and did an amazing job pulling it off. Some things I love about this wedding: the yellow, red, pink and turquoise color palette, the wedding flowers were bright dahlias from the garden of the groom's mother, the strawberry jam favors, an airstream trailer where the boys got ready, the little squirrel motif that appeared all over - a nod to the groom proposing with a ceramic squirrel holding an acorn that held the ring, the 'love' photobooth backdrop, the cupcake, pie and cake buffet and all of the ribbons! Photographer Sherri Diteman captured the fun, love filled day beautifully.

How cute is the photobooth backdrop of a hedge with 'love' letters?

Thanks so much to photographer Sherri Diteman for sharing this wonderful wedding!
