Traditional Purple Wedding with a Modern Twist

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this charming historic wedding in Georgia! Brian and Natalie rented out The Venetian Room near downtown Atlanta, and had this early 1900s venue decked out in beautiful violet hues. If you enjoy the finer things in life, you swoon over this purple wedding theme.

Their special day was both classic and modern. From the elegant marble to the chandeliers, the entire space leaves guests breathless. We are swooning over the pink and purple flower bouquets and the array of deep purple, and soft lavender, bridesmaids dresses. The sophisticated white Calla Lily centerpieces on the reception tables made quite a statement, as did the tiny candles scattered about the crystal vases. What was the real icing on the cake for us? We got a huge kick out of Natalie and Brian’s swirled chocolate and vanilla cake. Who doesn’t love getting the best of both worlds on their special day?

Blue and Gold Winter Wedding Shoot

Today, we are beaming about this wonderfully artistic wedding inspiration! If you and your partner are hoping to have some bold elements on your wedding day, this artsy blue and gold styled shoot is sure to impress. It’s unique and modern, and gives a refreshing spin on some classic wedding elements. While this inspiration is great for any time of the year, we especially love this theme for a winter wedding.

An art gallery may seem like an odd place to host your wedding, but it’s a great option for those of you wanting something a little less traditional. The marbled wedding invitations are sleek and refined, while the white orchids exude a certain softness within the reception decor. The blue and gold wedding colors are rich and welcoming; and it is quite possible that we have never seen such a beautiful cake before. It’s a little piece of golden heaven! Did we mention there’s also a photo booth? Remember to have fun on your wedding day! It will be over before you know it.

Modern and Bright Watercolor Wedding Inspiration Board

For the couple who doesn’t shy away from color, why not go all out with bold, brilliant hues? Magenta, chartreuse, and ice blue work surprisingly well when paired with bright white. To keep your wedding theme from looking too loud, focus on one bright color as your main hue, and use the other colors as accents in the details.

Bold Wedding Inspiration Board

Using bold, striking graphics in an eye-catching color combination is a chic way to work a modern theme for your wedding. Black and white is undeniably classic, but once you add pops of bold, bright color and geometric design elements, it becomes decidedly modern.
