Crisp and Cozy:  Autumn Weddings

~by Abigail Hodgson, Corolla Classic Vacations’ Wedding & Private Event Specialist / (252) 453-5022 / Fall weddings are becoming more and more popular as brides are discovering the natural beauty that surrounds us once summer begins to fade away.  Mild temperatures, crisp air, bright blue skies - the Fall is the perfect backdrop to a beach ceremony and reception.  In the Outer Banks, you will find the weather begin to cool off around the beginning of October and through November.  Fiery red sunsets will take your breath away and leave your guests with lifetime memories. One common misconception is that Fall weddings require Fall decorations.  Not true! I like to think of Fall wedding decor in the Outer Banks as "Cool Coastal Chic".  Navy blue, plum, gold, champagne, and pomegranate are perfect hues for creating a timeless setting for your autumn wedding.  Use starfish and soft lighting to keep it cozy-beachy!  There are no rules to wedding decor – only suggestions! Fall photography is at its prime this time of the year.  I chat with many of our local photographers and the general consensus is that an Outer Banks autumn is nature's perfect backdrop.  Ryan Diegelmann, of Coastal Shots Photography, can't get enough of wedding, engagement, and family shoots during the Fall! "As a photographer I always observe the available light and try to make the most of it. The Fall is a great time to take pictures on the Outer Banks thanks to the picturesque sunsets and amazing sunrises. The clear, cool air produces the best colors of the year when the sun is close to the horizon. Whether it’s an engagement session or a wedding, you can expect memorable images from the Outer Banks in the Fall." ~Ryan Diegelmann of Coastal Shots Photography If you have ever dreamed of a beach wedding - start planning now!  Corolla Classic Vacations has over 80 private event homes for you to rent.  Whether you want to take advantage of the amazing sunsets on the Currituck Sound or walk down your own private beach access to meet your groom on the sand – we will find the perfect home for you!  Pack your dress and leave your shoes at home, it's time to get married the beachy way!
