Reader Request: An Autumn Apple Wedding

One of our readers, Charlene, is planning a wedding in November of this year. As a little girl, Charlene's favorite story was Johnny Appleseed, and her mother used to joke that she would someday marry a John of her own. Well, it just so happens that she IS marrying a John, and they are planning an apple-themed wedding to honor this cute connection of past and present.

Congratulations Charlene & John, here's an inspiration board to assist you in the planning of your event:
