I think purple and dark orange would look nice–it blends in with green and brown without being super bright, like red.

we did chocolate brown, ivory and a really pale green. It wasn’t too “fall” looking, but blended well with the foliage.

September is actually a summer month. Only the last week is autumn.  So, I think you could go with some really vibrant colors. Since your venue showcases nature, look to flower gardens for your color scheme. Right now in my garden, there are blues, pinks, reds, yellows, oranges, purples, and whites. All the colors are vibrant and beautiful, and with the exception of the white, there aren’t really any pastel colors.

First of all, what a wonderful choice of a venue!  Tilden Park is so beautiful…what a great place to get married!

Because California doesn’t really seem to fall into the typical seasonal looks (sorry for the potentially bad pun) I wouldn’t worry about trying to match the area.  I’d say consider focusing on what colors you love, and going on that.  Is there one color you really love?  Or your fiance?  Or two?  I’d say figuring out a color that you gys really like and going off of that is great. 

I think ultimately, the colors should be reflective of what you like, not what looks “right” for the season.  And in that setting, anything you pick will look beautiful!

@judithsr:  I completely agree!  Jim and I are getting married December 1st, and our colors are pink and ivory. Pink is my favorite and also my signature color. When people think of me, they think of pink. I know it is typically considered a “spring” color, but idea of using Christmas, holiday or winter colors really did not appeal to me.
