So many couples cross their fingers for that “perfect fall day” – the ideal mix of peak foliage and temperate weather. Cayla and Adam lucked out for their October 2019 wedding here at Sylvanside, and everything from their rich palette down to the bride’s gorgeous red locks played off the surroundings. Take a look at this recap from Lauren Harbin of Chancey Charm.
This fall wedding was one of the highlights of my 2019 season. You could not plan a more perfect date with the rich foliage, temperate weather, and beautiful event spaces at Sylvanside Farm.
Cayla and Adam met while in the Peace Corps and their love story continued when they moved to Washington D.C. While wedding planning, they knew they wanted the day to feel inclusive, warm, and fun! With family and friends being at the center of their hearts, they opted for “VIPS” rather than a traditional bridal party and had a family friend and Peace Corps peer officiate their wedding. Adam and Cayla opted for private vow readings before the ceremony and a romantic first look in front of the Sylvanside’s pond.
The day began in the Hunt Box and Cottage, two on-site lodging options where the couple, family, and friends stayed for the wedding weekend. Blushaway’s makeup and Dare To Be Unforgettable’s hair team was
conveniently in the on-site salon while Affordable Arrangements florals arrived for ceremony and reception set up. Cayla wanted a rich berry palette for her day filled with purples, blues, and touches of gold accents.
On the gorgeous fall wedding day, Elizabeth M Photography and her team were giddy over the rich foliage and Cayla’s hair. The Azazie ink blue dresses were striking against the farm’s greenery and the mens’ dark red ties were a perfect pair to the berry hues in the girls’ bouquets.
