Inspired by Nature, Fall Wedding Palette Ideas

I am a New England girl at heart.  I was born and raised in Vermont and have lived in Maine for the last 10 years.  One of the strongest reasons I have decided to stay in the northeast is that I love the change in seasons and I especially love the fall.  The air is crisp and clear, the ground crunches with leaves underfoot, and there are pumpkins everywhere!  The rich and vivid colors make a picturesque backdrop to any wedding.
