Autumn reds are some of the prettiest colors Mother Nature has to offer. The fall wedding of Roxanne Najor (32 and a program manager) and Matthew Hornik (32 and a pediatrician) at the Shenandoah Country Club in West Bloomfield, Michigan was bold and romantic in vivd shades of red. Their celebration, which was developed with the help of The Event Planner, was beautifully photographed by Arising Images. "I wanted people to walk into our wedding and feel like they walked into a garden," Roxanne says. Elaborate red floral arrangements at the reception were created by Delux Floral and included an array of exotic flowers like flame lilies, ginger flowers, kangaroo paws and coxcombs along with more traditional flowers like roses, hydrangeas and dahlias. Decor also included large metallic lanterns as centerpieces and candlelight. Since Roxanne is Chaldean and Matt is Polish, the couple incorporated both of their native traditions into the marriage. Matt's family partook in the Chaldean tradition of Zorna and Tabol, where the groom's family picks up the bride from her house and they dance to the music of drums and a flute. At the reception, the couple also participated in the Polish tradition of sharing bread, water and salt with each other. The couple ended their night with dancing styles from both of their cultures. "I did the polka for the very first time at our wedding," Roxanne says. "It was great to see my family join in during the polka music and Matt's family join in during the Arabic dancing."

Roxanne wore bold red Badgley Mischka heels on her wedding day. Her bridesmaids also wore red heels with bows at the toe.
Roxanne wore a ball gown by Rosa Clara Bridal, which featured an illusion neckline with lace appliques and tulle sleeves. " I loved the idea of having sleeves because of how elegant and classy it looked," Roxanne says.
Roxanne carried a bouquet full of unique flowers, including ginger flowers, kangaroo paws, flame lilies, scabiosa pods and coxcomb as well as dahlias.
Roxanne's bridesmaids wore floor length Amsale dresses in gray, and they carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet.
Matthew and his groomsmen wore black tuxedos with bow ties. They also wore fuchsia flower boutonnieres.
Roxanne and Matt had the tradition of Zorna and Tabol at their wedding where the groom's family comes to the bride's house and escorts her to the wedding. For this tradition, which usually includes dancing, they hired a drummer and a flautist.
Roxanne wore a cathedral veil at her church ceremony, which took place at Academy of Sacred Heart Chapel in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

The ballroom at Shenandoah Country Club was decorated with metallic lanterns and candlelight. Dining tables were covered in green tablecloths and arranged with fuchsia chargers.
Flower arrangements at the reception consisted of bold roses and lilies in addition to other exotic flowers. "I wanted my money to be spent on the quality of my flowers rather than the quantity," Roxanne says.
