Let's Rock!

|| Jenna + Dimitri at El Caribe ||

The nice thing about this is Jenna never really hits you over the head with her thematic elements. It's really easy to get carried away with a theme like this, but here she uses a lot of subtly to convey the look.

Apples. Apples apples apples.

Here's what she had to say about it:

I wanted a classy but vibrant Fall/halloween [themed]...wedding cause Fall is my favorite season. The great thing about fall weddings is that you don't have to be "wed" to any particular color, you can use so many great colors and they seem to go well together, but it's still tasteful. I used a lot of burgundy, chocolate brown, burnt orange but then some gold and soft pinks to soften the look.

"I knew I wanted lots of pumpkins for the wedding so the October before the wedding...my best friend and I went pumpkin picking and bought a bunch of paint, brushes, glitter and crystals to experiment with designs on the pumpkins we bought.

I ‎painted 150 jack-be-little pumpkins

[Editor's note: I did not know that’s what they are called! That’s...the cutest thing I’ve ever heard!] with white spray paint and sprinkled them with shimmer. Those were for the table seating cards.

For the tables, I painted larger pumpkins various fall colors (copper, dark pink, gold etc) and sprinkled/dipped them in shimmer,

making a variety of different designs.

[Jenna sent us this picture of the DIY in progress! That's a lot of pumpkins]

We had alternating centerpieces with branches & fall flowers with votive candles. The table numbers were orange mason jars with fall leaves and a floating candle. It took a bit of experimenting to get to that design, but it worked out great."

Her wedding fashion was also in-step with her theme.

"It may sound cliche, but I truly loved my dress. I wanted to do something different by having straps and I loved the crystal detailing of the straps of the dress."
