Your wedding day is special, but when it brings together different cultures it can have an even more meaningful resonance.
Warm Tones and Rustic Elements Complete This Autumn Wedding Look
(Above) This stunning confection by Jules’ Bistro is a study in rustic elegance. Chocolate layers await under salted- caramel buttercream frosting and a salted-caramel drizzle cover. Toffee and cappuccino roses, mini cymbidium orchids, blood oranges, starfruit and mixed dried flowers, thanks to St. Cloud Floral, make it even more luscious.
(Below) The perfect ceremony site can be perfectly simple. Botany Creative Works opted for a backdrop of arched panels inspired by the architecture of the ’60s and early ’70s, with the era’s signature tones of earthy orange, gold and dusky rose. The hanging installation by St. Cloud Floral is set off by the venue’s exposed brick for a contemporary yet classic look infused with the warmth of natural materials.

From left, try a grilled chimichurri center-cut sirloin steak with white cheddar/gouda bacon macaroni and cheese and glazed green-top carrots. At center, sample the Popeye table loaf from Great Harvest, topped with seasoned whipped butter, and at right, enjoy the mozzarella-and bacon stuffed statler-cut chicken breast with blueberry balsamic glaze, baby baked potatoes with savory bacon shallot jam, and quartered roasted artichoke hearts with Peppadew peppers.

Our bride, in a gown by Essense of Australia from Finley Florence Bridal, is the essence of enchanting elegance; The groom, ready for his closeup in a suit from Milbern Clothing Co., appears to have happily fallen under her spell.

Designed and created by Tiffany Sass of TEM Photography, it plays off the arches of the ceremony backdrop, along with the amber and rose shades of floral of- ferings. Wedding rings from D.J. Bitzan are a pure expression of the unbroken circle of love.
