Nebraska Wedding Day Fall/Winter 2022

Erica is the picture of perfection in the elegant “Bryant” by Jenny Yoo, accented with lace sleeves by Calla Blanche and a not-quite-tiara for a regal touch.

Ruffles of pink fondant, sprigs of fresh florals and a dainty flower pattern on this grand confection from The Bubbly Tart make it abundantly clear that sweet blossoms are the order of the day.

"The design concept was produced to inspire future brides with lush, garden-style blooms in an unexpected fall color palette." — Lauren Barratt, founder, Lavish Flower Design

This dreamy tablescape harmonizes fall-inspired centerpiece flowers with burgundy linens, pale pink seating and tea lights, and yes, rose-colored glasses — though they’re the kind you sip from, not see through. 

Erica’s opulent bouquet from Lavish Flower Design features Brownie tulips, hellebores and sweet peas sourced from Japan; each was individually stem-dyed to highlight the delicate veins in each blossom.  

Gold highlights — candlesticks, vases, flatware, and gold-rimmed chargers — glimmer in the table setting, adding a luxe touch to symbolize the couple’s bright future. 

"I wanted the flowers to be luxe and luxurious, and the linens and accessories to be a mix of modern, traditional and romantic." — Sarah Lukas McMahon, founder, S. Lukas & Co.

A refined stationery suite by Dana Osborne Design not only informs guests of the celebration to come, it foreshadows the palette of bold red, white with gold details and dusty pink. 

Our bride dazzles in pearl-and-diamond cluster drop earrings, understated glamour that shows off her flawless natural look, with the lightest blush and a glossy pink lip. Round two of dessert calls for a sculptural two-tier cake, adorned with fanciful florals and a palm leaf, and illuminated by the slimmest of tapers. Erica awaits her “I do,” framed by floating florals of toffee roses, blush butterfly ranunculus and Japanese lisianthus as floor lanterns flicker with the light of love. *
