When medical students Amy and Andrew began planning their wedding, they knew they’d need some help coordinating the details. They wisely chose Shayla Hawkins to take care of all of their reception planning, giving her just two instructions. The first was that it should be a fall theme. Blooms created these gorgeous floral arrangements for the church.I couldn’t get enough of this bouquet! Love the deep, rich, intense colors. This pretty backdrop sat on the table with the escort cards at the reception. I love the attention to detail – even the votive candles here are a deep fall color. Amy’s second request: the centerpieces would be baskets of apples, which would be donated to an organization in need the next day.  Festive and functional! And don’t overlook the stationery. Loved that the first course was butternut squash soup. Delicious! And even the desserts matched the theme! More photos of this cake here. More photos of this cookie table here.
