‘Botanics & Butterflies’ Now on Green Wedding Shoes

How amazing are these deep, rich fall colors?!?! The greenery surrounding Rancho Las Lomas, butterflies and entomology collections provided such a unique design to this inspiration. Check out these stunning pictures below.

“For those of you that don’t know — Southern California doesn’t really get the traditional fall season. As our home office is in sunny Southern California, we’ve experienced this firsthand and crave all the changing colors of the leaves, the crisp air, and that overall cozy feeling of fall… Alas, we are graced with “California Fall,” and make due with what we’ve got (in all honesty, we’re not complaining about CA, we do love it here!). The team at Golden Arrow Events shares our sentiment, and wanted to create autumnal wedding inspiration, to make up for the lack of fall weather here.

Golden Arrow Events shares: We don’t always get that colorful foliage that you see around the country this time of year, but we definitely love fall as much as the rest of the country does. No California girl can wait for the weather to get cool enough to throw on her boots and jacket. Our first inspiration interestingly enough was a butterfly and from there entomology collections! We really began to see their rich deep tones that we often associate with fall and we went from there. We had our bride wear a leather jacket and her favorite fall boots.” - Green Wedding Shoes
