A Rustic Autumn Wedding in Merritt, British Columbia


After discussing their engagement, Jason couldn’t wait to pop the question, and proposed to Melissa on the drive home from the jewellers where they had just picked out a ring. The couple celebrated with a rustic autumn wedding at Centennial Park in Merritt, British Columbia, followed by a civic centre reception. Several autumnal details were included throughout the festivities, from the bride’s green and orange bouquet to the bridesmaids’ exquisite chocolate-coloured gowns, straight out of a woodland fairytale. Even the wedding cake reflected the rustic autumn wedding theme. In lieu of standard wedding fare, guests were treated to seasonal comfort food, including BBQ chicken, roast beef and stuffed potatoes. Guests departed the rustic autumn wedding with coffee bean favours packaged in burlap bags, a final nod to the season.
