Autumn Fantasy {Grace}

Since Coco Myles dresses can also be beautiful wedding gowns, I have chosen to create a dream wedding dress!



Imagine an autumn wedding with the leaves slightly falling in rural, wine-country Virginia in the month of October. You booked the most beautiful outdoor wedding under a clear-top tent and all the candles are glimmering in the last few winks of sunlight. The autumn season nip-in-the-air is just cool enough as you take a deep breath in the crisp evening. Everything in your tent is covered with flowing flowers from the ceiling to the wall; as far as the eye can see, there are white roses. This is what you imagine heaven to be as you make your next steps down the aisle. Your bridesmaids are standing ahead smiling, some tearing up as you hold tightly to your bouquet of cascading stephanotis. As your husband-to-be smiles, it's everything you have hoped for because he is looking at you just as you have always imagined. Your sweetheart neckline, satin gown swishes like a bell along the petals on the ground as you approach your love. What a perfect day!

Your vision of the reception is everything you have dreamed. As your bridesmaids enter the room in their auburn-colored dresses tied ever so slightly in the back with a thin taffeta bow, you look ahead at the glowing centerpieces placed strategically over the rust-colored linens. The centerpieces are filled with dark orange and red calla lilies, dark green leaves, yellow sunflowers and long curly willow branches. From each branch hangs a small, dark yellow, flickering votive which sets the mood of the room to warm and romantic. You grab your husband's hand and approach the dance floor thinking of how much you love this day and how magical it is to sway around the room in your beautiful, perfect, wedding dress.
