When planning your wedding, you may feel that you need to go the route most-often traveled when it comes to the day and time – Saturday, early afternoon, followed by a nighttime cocktail hour and reception that goes into the wee hours of the night. This is what we most often see planning tips for, and most venues automatically assume that this is when you want to book and hold your event.

However, perhaps you want a smaller, intimate daytime affair. Or maybe you only want to have a cocktail hour reception with appetizers and drinks, instead of a full-blown night of dinner and dancing – that’s even better!

A romantic country club wedding by Year and A Day Photography

What’s more romantic than an ethereal illusion neckline wedding dress, an elegant country club and a real-life romance? Answer: nothing! That’s why we are over the moon about today’s gorgeous and romantic country club wedding! The bride, Jessica, planned the whole thing from start to finish and did an amazing job. A few words from the bride:

My wedding was held exactly one year from the date my husband surprised me with a romantic proposal at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. I wanted our wedding to be intimate, personal, and understated. I was not someone who planned my dream wedding as a little girl, so after getting engaged I had to really think about what I wanted.

I knew I wanted to get married surrounded by beautiful scenery. I especially love mountains, and I have always loved upstate New York for its quaintness and natural beauty. After some research and visualizing, I realized I wanted my wedding to be rustic with some vintage touches. We drew inspiration from our beautiful venue, the style of the TV show Downton Abbey, as well as the love of filmmaking my husband and I share.

A rustic blue and orange wedding by Sarah Rose Burns Photography

Rustic fall wedding photo

I’ve seen a lot of weddings in my day, but I’ve never seen with a more unique and whimsical color scheme than today’s special celebration! Zach and Ginger created a beautiful, rustic blue and orange wedding set in the stunning backdrop of a Colorado fall — and I have to say, the color scheme is almost as pretty as Ginger in her stunning David’s Bridal wedding dress. It’s clear these two put a lot of thought and love into planning their wedding day, and it paid off!

Captured beautifully by Sarah Rose Burns Photography, you’ll want to see more of this very special fall wedding day!
