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?

An Industrial Modern Wedding in a City Winery

We hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend! Today, we are sharing a stunning wedding with some epic city flare. Katie and Brock wanted a non-traditional wedding, and made sure to incorporate some unique elements within their big day. Their fun modern wedding in Portland included a glittery champagne wedding dress, Corn Dog toasts, and a standing room ceremony.

From the mismatched bridesmaids dresses to simple reception centerpieces, we love how effortless this stylish wedding feels. The mix of vibrant reds, pinks, and burgundy flowers really tie everything together.

Tea Length Wedding Invitations

As a self-proclaimed lover of all things unique and different, I can’t help but fall in love with some of Wedding Paper Diva’s newest invitation designs.  At my own wedding, I used ever-popular tea length bridesmaid dresses, which appear both modern and sophisticated at the same time.  If you want to tie this same look in to your invitations, consider the Together Forever Wedding Invitations:

The graphic designer in me loves the text treatment–simple yet striking.  You don’t often see landscape tea length cards, so this feature stands out to me as well.

Another tea length horizontal card that I’m loving is the Modern Bouquets Wedding Invitation in Verbena.    The hues of blue reflect a very 2009 color palette, and the cluster of flowers in the corner denotes spring.
