FALL In Love With The Beach

Are you dreaming of a beach wedding but not into the sweltering heat and intense summer crowds? The beach in the off season is unexpectedly serene and the perfect time to host a Jersey Shore Wedding. Warm sunshine, moody skies and cool breezes are the norm for early fall down the shore. The vibe is completely different then a beachy summer soiree. The mood is more refined and subdued as the crowds are gone, the sand and surf are quiet and  you can truly enjoy the landscape. Even better, the price of rental homes, hotels and venue fees drop significantly.

Check out some of my favorite things for fall weddings at the beach. 


Sexy Sunset Sand Portraits  ~ While golden hour images filled with whimsy and sunshine are reigning supreme, the vibe at the beach in the fall is moody, sexy and sultry. Gray skies, dark shores and a sandy beach make for some dramatic bridal portraits. Brides can be bold with their makeup and opt for a sexy gown sillohouette.



Dramatic Color Palette ~ The beauty of a fall beach wedding is you can opt for dark, rich colors with vibrant moody blooms like  Black Cantor and Odessa Calla Lillies, Plum Chile Ranunculus and Purple Mokara Orchids. The purples paired with navy blue, gold, burgundy and blush pinks is sweet and sultry.


Nautical Details ~ Fall is perfect for a nautical theme! Dark blues mixed with rustic wood crates and vintage suitcases accented by gold props and decor give a subtle nod to the ocean theme. Rope, twine and river rocks set amidst lanterns, compasses, maps and clocks add a touch of whimsy and charm to the tablescape and cake display.
