Fall Themed Wedding Ideas

There are a ton of reasons to love fall; hot chocolate, crisp weather, the changing of the leaves and of course fall weddings. Since the season is in full swing, we thought it was only appropriate to share all of Carolyn and Ryan’s fantastic fall themed wedding ideas. Held at the one and only barn wedding venue in Orange County, Strawberry Farm, the couple added a touch of western style to complete the look.

Wheat bouquets and boutonnieres, Cinderella pumpkin escort cards and an over the top fall themed dessert table are just a few of the fall themed wedding ideas you will find. You can see way more fun details in the full gallery here. All photographed by Orange County wedding photographer  Ashleigh Taylor Photography.

From The Bride
Hi Y’all! My name is Carolyn and I am the quintessential DIY bride.We got married at Strawberry Farms and Golf Course– it was the best of both worlds, the golf course for him and the big red barn for me. Our menu was southern food turned up a notch… we had wood smoked BBQ chicken, collard greens with fried pancetta and lobster mac ‘n cheese with truffle oil!

Half The Fat Dessert Table:
As for dessert, well you guessed it, I did it myself, with the help of my amazing culinary team. I just so happen to own my own bakery, 
Half Baked Co. where we bake everything with half the fat, calories and sugar, but all the great taste. The dessert bar featured a variety of Fall themed goodies for the dessert bar from chai tea cupcakes to chocolate dipped pears to pumpkin spice cupcakes in mason jars and festive caramel apples. We also did a variety of cake pops, oreo pops and smore’s marshmallow pops that were displayed on moss covered tree stumps for a rustic feel, as well as hot cocoa mason jars with monogrammed stickers.

We displayed all the cupcakes on one of our disposable cupcake towers, which we ribboned with chocolate colored satin for a touch of elegance, as a more cost effective and trendier option to a big tiered cake. Then for the top tier of the tower we had a small old fashioned frosted 6” cake with a birds nest and 2 wooden loved birds that we found on Etsy and etched “Love” on one and “Birds” on the other as our cake toppers.

More About Half Baked Co.
Where we bake with half the fat, calories and sugar but all the same great taste!  We use only the finest ingredients in our deceptively healthy baked goods, such as whole wheat unbleached flour, applesauce in place of half the oil, almond milk instead of cream and lots of other healthy baking alternatives to give you the healthiest and yet best tasting product possible.  We carry a wide variety of vegan, gluten-free and reduced sugar options to cater to your every dietary need.

    Thanks for all the sweet comments y’all! The dress believe it or not was $450 from David’s Bridal and then I had the custom sash made on etsy and the necklace was from a trip to Venice, Italy before I even got engaged… I saw it and knew that someday I was going to base my whole wedding around it and I did :) Any brides wanting to inquire about dessert tables feel free to email me at halfbakedco@gmail.com with any questions, we also ship nation wide!
