Purple and Gold Traditional Wedding in New Jersey

Today, we are swooning over this traditional wedding theme with pops of purple and gold. Laszlo & Joel’s vision for their wedding was all about being elegant and fabulous. These two were married in a stunning old church, and were walked down the aisle by their adorable niece and nephew.

Their fun reception party was held at Rutgers University, where a dining hall was transformed into a spectacular space with an incredible international feast, including traditional Hungarian fare, a whole roasted pig, and paella. We are especially loving the black and gold wedding invitations they picked for their big day. The splash of gold perfectly accompanies the purple accents throughout their luxurious wedding theme.

Classy White Wedding Inspiration for Winter

We love weddings that add a splash of seasonal flare. While many think that winter weddings have to incorporate shades of blue, we are here to tell you that something neutral and white, is equally as stunning!

This wedding inspiration, shot by the talented Merari, and designed by Whimsy Weddings, is so chic and timeless. The simplicity of it all somehow makes it even more romantic. The neutral colors and clean lines, make this an ideal wedding theme for this refined season. However, this color palette is truly perfect for any time of the year!

We are smitten with the bride’s creamy lace wedding dress, brilliant white floral bouquets, and metallic gold accent pieces along the tablescape. Even the white three-tiered wedding cake is sprinkled with tiny gold flecks, which effortlessly adds a gorgeous ombre effect to this sweet treat. To top it all off, the venue’s amazing floor to ceiling windows add in the perfect amount of sunlight into the reception venue. This crisp and airy wedding venue is a must-have if you live near Brooklyn. If you are yearning for a formal, white wedding with a few splashes of color throughout, this may just be the ultimate inspiration.
