Enchanting Outdoor Fall Wedding

Real Wedding Spotlight: A magical Minnesota fall outdoor wedding that combined natural autumn elements with soft romantic details.

There is something so enchanting about a fall wedding in Minnesota and Becca & John’s outdoor fall wedding at The Gardens of Castle Rock was no exception. The rich golden hues of leaves amidst the clear crisp sky created the perfect day for their celebration.

With thousands of café lights shining throughout, the Lath House aisle was covered in freshly fallen leaves and strategically placed floral pieces that lead to the ceremony arch brimming with two large autumn toned floral installations.

After the ceremony, guests gathered on the reception patio and around the natural stone fireplace for cocktail hour before heading into the wedding reception tent decorated in billowing draping, crisp white linens, sparkling café lights and varying sizes of candles giving off a glowing romantic vibe.
