Jordan and Cole’s September wedding was at the Des Moines chapter of the Izaak Walton Conservation Club. Jordan’s family belongs to the club, and she loved the idea of an outdoor ceremony on the grounds. When the day arrived, it was warm and sunny. It made me so happy to see Jordan’s wish come true! 

As a florist, I work with some of my favorite colors for fall weddings. Designing with warm shades of cream, deep burgundies, and lots of textured greenery are so inspiring. I loved collaborating with this couple to achieve the unique style of their day! Keep scrolling for all the fall floral inspiration you need for a rustic chic affair.

Moody and Boho Fall Florals

When Jordan inquired with us, she explained that she wanted the day to feel romantic and elegant, with a moody color palette of rose gold, black, and burgundy. From there, we selected seasonal flowers in a matching palette, with pops of dried florals for texture! Jordan’s bouquet featured ivory and peach roses, with pops of burnt orange chrysanthemum and plumes of pampas grass. A rose gold ribbon streamed from the bottom and added a touch of boho glam.

The couple’s ceremony florals were also a highlight! We installed draping greenery accented with more roses and pampas grass on a locally hewn wooden arch. The hexagon shape suited Jordan’s boho style, while the rustic wooden look appealed to Cole. Best of all, we managed to repurpose the arrangement from the base of the arch for the couple’s sweetheart table!

Reception at Izaak Walton Conservation Club

Because the couple’s reception took place at a conservation club, the interior was very rustic. While the couple liked the rustic look, they wanted to elevate the space to fit their vision for their day. So, we worked around hanging deer mounts and pictures of hunters (not exactly the epitome of romance!) to transform the space and tone down the “country” feel.

We covered the tables in sand-colored linens and lit plenty of candles to fill the room with a soft, romantic glow. We also added touches of dried floral material to “soften the edges” a bit. Each table featured an understated, textural centerpiece with peach roses, orange zinnias, and preserved purple millet. In addition, we provided several styling props for the space, including vintage tables and antique bronze candle holders. We were so proud of the finished look and how we were able to give the room a completely different feel!
