I actually don't have that many ancestors who were married between September and November, and in the last 100 years the number is very small: two couples. My great-grandparents, Joseph James Allen and Daisy May Croad were married in Jackson, Jackson, Michigan on 28 Oct 1921.
The other couple (again my great-grandparents), Gideon Gottlieb Berger and Georgiana Wellons were married in Yreka, Siskiyou, California on 29 Sep 1919. The time was 11:59am. The groom was just shy of 34, the bride 28. The newspapers reported that they were married in the home of the bride, and that the officiating minister was a good friend of the groom. The bride's mother and sister were the witnesses. The groom's family wished them well, but did not make the trip from Oakland. At the time, Gideon was the minister of the Methodist church in Sisson (now Mt. Shasta City).
Although the marriage was a long and happy one, apparently at least one person wasn't in favor of it at first. When I interviewed my grandmother a few months ago she told me the story: Georgia was working as a school teacher in Edgewood, where Gideon was a minister. They met there and decided to marry not long after. Georgia's best friend apparently didn't approve of Gideon (for whatever reason, though I believe it might have been because their courtship was rather short) and after they got married the two friends stopped speaking... until the friend married Georgia's brother.

An interesting side note is that a year earlier Georgia and Gideon were living less than a mile from each other in Oakland, but their paths never crossed. Gideon died in 1965, Georgia in 1985. They were married 46 years.
