Hi ladies and gents!
My fiance and I have finally decided on Elm Court Estate in Lenox for our ceremony and reception and have to choose a date tonight! Our options are September 15 or October 6th 2012. I know this is the Boston post, but I haven't gotten any responses on the Western Ma post, so I thought I 'd give it a whirl on this one in case any of you grew up in the Western Ma or were familiar with the area
I'm torn because the foliage will be near peak during the first weekend of October, but I'm not sure about the weather that time of year, and we are having our ceremony outside (perhaps a cocktail our at sunset or an hour or less of toasts and casual dessert outside after dark to break up the evening - dinner and dancing will probably be inside for the most part.
I was told that there will be some color change in mid-september, but does it even remotely compare to October? Mostly just want to make sure my guests are comfortable and I want to take advantage of the colors if at all possible. Can anyone give me a feel for what the two dates will be like on average temp and color wise? I would love any advice that anyone has! And if anyone who lives out that way or has been to a wedding in the Berkshires has pics to share so that I can get a better idea of what the colors are like, I would love to see them!
