Wedding Inspiration: An Orchard Themed Fall Wedding

Last week we took a short family trip to Michigan to visit dear friends.  We escaped the Phoenix heat, went apple picking, drank freshly pressed apple cider, ate hot cider donuts, and enjoyed a bit of glorious fall.

Eating apples directly off the tree.

I was inspired.  The weather, the scents, the tastes, the sights.  So perfectly, marvelously fall.  What could be better than an orchard wedding in the glorious autumn sunshine?

Long tables in the orchard, full of family and friends:

All set up for a formal dinner in the peach orchard at Schnepf Farms, Queen Creek, AZ.

From the gorgeous Orchard Wedding inspiration table put together by Once Wed:

Delicious favors like the apple butter (above) or caramel apples (below)!

And who can resist the allure of wedding pies instead of wedding cake?  Check out this beautifully styled concept from Lyndsey Hamilton Events

I'm in love with autumn, and its flavors and colors.   Maybe it's just the 100+ Phoenix heat (still!) getting to me, but I can't imagine a more beautiful setting or theme than an orchard wedding.
