One of our favorite times of year for a wedding is when the weather is transitioning from summer to fall. Still sunny, but not ridiculously hot, guests can spend time outdoors and enjoy the last few moments of great weather. This rustic Connecticut wedding has plenty of traditional details to inspire your decor choices for your own informal affair. The whole event felt relaxed and celebratory, with bottles of bubbly in a large ice bucket and floral accents everywhere.

Thanks to Kate Uhry Photography for sharing this lovely day with us!

  • Eleanor's simple veil and floral crown
  • The classic linen table runners (a must-have accessories or all rustic weddings)
