Even though summer is known for being the biggest wedding season, we're particularly fond of autumn nuptials — especially when they're located at festive venues like an apple orchard. Swoon. Here are some of the dreamiest locations for a fall celebration.

To us, autumn mornings are meant for grabbing a coffee and going vintage sale hopping. Sure, you can't buy the items in this venue in Belle Plaine, Minnesota (which was photographed by Meg Cooper), but you can window shop while you wait for the dessert to be served.

Peaches are only in season until late September, so we bet these colorful orchards in Athens, Alabama are fruit-free — and therefore bug-free — for fall weddings. We adore this southern celebration that was shot by Mary Margaret Smith Photography.

Anyone who wants to feel like a princess on their wedding day should think about having a castle venue in the fall like this one in Sedalia, Colorado (shot by Lisa O'Dwyer). Since these historic buildings usually don't have air conditioning, it's must less sweaty that way.
