Dresses and Décor for Fall and Winter
It’s well known for its specular views, but on this day the Castle in the Clouds was, indeed, enveloped by clouds. We found it a rare opportunity to have a stunning, almost magical, backdrop for gorgeous gowns and a forest feast. See what a talented team can do amid the mist.

New Trend — The Plunging V
The Casablanca Bridal’s “Ainsley” features an on-trend plunging V-neckline and sheer ¾-length lace sleeves. It’s also an on-trend color, champagne, with an ivory lace overlay. Casablanca gowns can be customized, allowing brides to create an original.
Gown With Flair
A belt was added to this lace trumpet-style Blue by Enzoani “Joy” gown to create flair. It’s offered exclusively at A Day to Remember Bridal Boutique. For hair and makeup to complement the gown, the hair and makeup artists from Yes Girl Bridal chose soft Hollywood waves and lightly airbrushed makeup, with soft coral peach blush and matching frosted eye shadow.
Italian designer Eddy K created this lace mermaid gown, a mix of several different laces uniquely placed to flatter the body. Eddy K gowns are offered exclusively at A Day to Remember Bridal Boutique. For hair, the artists went with a romantic braid bedecked with tiny flowers. The look is completed with matte bronzed glow and pearlescent shimmer highlight and winged line on the eye.
Adornment on the V-neck bodice adds sparkle to this simple but elegant dress.
Flowers for Fall
This textural bouquet by Mountain Laurel Flower Shop has bright sunflowers, dahlias and roses, perfect for fall. Or, for a more classic look, hand-tied soft roses and eucalyptus with hints of color.
The tablescape highlights what designer Jessica Raymond calls “an unforgettable setting for spending an evening outdoors enjoying the crisp autumn air.” It features a wooden farm table adorned with a colorful mix of greenery and florals. Sprigs of greenery add a special touch to each place setting. The elegant garden centerpiece is designed with free spirit roses, dahlias, berries, eucalyptus and assorted greenery. Mahogany Chiavari chairs were selected to tie in with the natural outdoor setting. Oversized lanterns and vintage gold candle votives complete the perfect ambiance as the sun goes down.
Desserts and Refreshments
The dessert spread features a three-tiered chocolate chip cookie cake and an assortment of fall flavors, including mini maple pecan tarts, pumpkin whoopie pies, spiced pear cobbler and fig pastry bars. Above: An apple cider martini is served as a signature cocktail. Miniature apple pies garnish the glasses for a tasty bite between sips.
