Our Woodsy Nature-y Theme

As I go along with my planning, our wedding theme (at least in my mind) becomes more and more "woodsy". I know a lot of fall weddings play on the season to a large degree, bringing in the reds, oranges, yellows, etc. of the foliage. However, this is Texas. In early October. We'll be lucky to see any brown in the leaves. Besides, green & brown happen to be my favorite colors, and I love me some leaves, pinecones, grapevine, rosemary, and so on and so forth.

I'm terrible at referencing where I steal images from, so pardon my lack of credit given here. Here are some inspiration boards I nabbed from somewhere, with the "feel" and palette I'm going for.

Yum. Nature.
I'm a li'l bit sad I don't have some adorable little boy-cousin to escort that also-adorable li'l mossy nest ring-bearer "pillow" down the aisle. Connor's wheel-chair should be motorized and switch-operated. Then he could zoom my little nest to me. Eh? Eh? No? Poop.

Also, note the following adorable woodsy bouteneires. Err. bouttenieres. Err... That word I can never spell.

Ignore ^that^ attrocious tie. Yikes. Yay, acorns. Moving on.

Cute. And lacking flowers. Yay, no-flowers. I had a lot more pictures of these kinds o' bout.s saved before I had to reformat. Oh well. You get the picture of what I'm going for, eh?

Also, talk me out of using this cake stand:
