This loose, woodsy bouquet by Martha’s Gardens is spirited yet sophisticated, spilling over with a bounty of greenery and lush blooms.

A four-tiered cake by Ink Sweets is a stunner, ablaze in orange. Paper-thin layers of fondant add a hint of texture, as handmade sugar tulips, ranunculus and roses ascend the side.

Linens in shades of sage and pumpkin, from Linen Effects, and the cheery menu by Paper Rock Scissor extend the fall theme in this cozy table setting.

Textured brushstrokes in forest and moss greens, all flecked with edible gold, sweep across this work of art by Chowgirls Catering. Rice paper and wafer paper elements top off the masterpiece, complemented by ranunculus and a single, perfect rose.

Fit for a fairy tale, warm neutrals on eyes and lips accentuate the bride’s natural beauty, while side-swept tresses complete her carefree look; both by WarPaint International Beauty Agency. Dainty pearls add the crowning touch in her headpiece and earrings from BHLDN.

It’s all in the details in this standout of square tiers, with the third tier perched demurely atop a jewel box just waiting to be filled. This confection by D’Amico Catering features metallic sugar pearls, a few fresh blooms and a filigree of gold leaves, with gold-trimmed raw borders for an organic edge to the elegance.

A cheerful treat by Buttercream, this cake features two tiers of hand-painted botanicals in shades of marigold and sunshine, accented by feathery ferns.
