Mary Lynn & Todd celebrated their Fall wedding with a really fun beer theme at Merion Tribute House.  Fall is such a great time to plan a wedding with so many available - and inexpensive - flowers to choose from.  We ran with red, burgundy, yellow, orange and purple thoughout the wedding.  First, Mary Lynne's bouquet was made up of strong Fall colors including lilies, leucadendron, and trachelium.  Todd wore a boutonniere of hops and hypericum berries.

While Mary Lynn carried lilies, her attendants carried bouquets of Peruvian lilies (alstromeria) in the same colors.  Groomsmen wore wheat with their berry boutonnieres.

For their ceremony, the couple had barrels brought in that bore their name and wedding date.  I thought they were awesome!  I made large arrangements to sit on the tops of the barrels, presentation roses for the Moms, and adorned the aisle with wheat and Fall ribbon.

Collections of craft beer bottles sat on cocktail tables, while the placecard table held a large flower arrangement.  Guests were seated according to which bottle cap they were assigned.  I loved the card holder that was used for this wedding.

There were two different sets of centerpieces.  One set was made with  a growler provided by the couple with an accompanying glass bottle in wire.  The second set was made up of a pair of glass bottles in wire of different sizes.

For the cake, I used touches of Fall flowers to decorate - simple and sweet.

 Mary Lynn and Todd were absolute sweethearts to work with.  Mary Lynn did a wonderful job with her details.  She was so knowledgeable about beer and hops, that I referred another one of my brides to her for help!  What a great couple and what a great wedding!  I wish you many years of happiness together. Cheers!
