RUSTIC PLACE CARD NAPKINS
For Melissa and Adam's October affair, they integrated decorations that celebrated the season and the natural landscape. The bride crafted these wood tags tagged with her guests' names and stamped with an autumn division icon to tie across the napkins.
At Giovanna and Schuyler's California nuptials, shawls were set out with a calligraphed tag reading "cuddle up and remain warm" so guests could keep cozy as temperatures dipped.
To keep using a comfy fall motif, the guys in Maria and Robert's wedding received some of comfortable leather slippers and bridesmaids were given plaid blankets.

Abbie and Marc recited vows under a chuppa decorated together with the paper leaves that brought out the fall wedding theme as well as featured felicitations from their loved ones.

Each place setting at Dana and Quinn's reception in Jamestown, Virginia, was emphasized having a fresh fig.
CEDAR WEDDING PROGRAMS

Spencer's wedding celebration and the cake at Cara sat atop a wooden pedestal surrounded by stalks of wheat, which fit the colors as well as feeling of the setting.

Pinecones wired to some tree marked the entry in Twain Harte, California to Lena and Joshua's wedding site.
Instead of one big wedding cake, Robert and Maria offered a number of seasonal alternatives in Sunriver, Oregon for guests at their reception.
