This classic styled purple wedding theme in the beautiful Prince Rupert is a real dream come true. The bold color choice allow for the hues to pop in almost everywhere you look, from the florals to the personalized wine bottles. We’re also loving the ocean views this location has to offer and these photographs taken by the ever-talented Stefania Bowler Photography really capture the charm of Lia and Alan’s big day.
From the Photographer…
The lovely couple chose to work with silver and shades of plum and purple colors which can be seen throughout the bridal party’s attire, bouquets, and decor. Lia wore a beautiful ball gown accented with a floral design and jewels paired with cute purple flats, the groom was in a grey suit with dark purple accents. The groom’s wedding ring is a unique Damascus steel band, and fit his style perfectly.
The Bride’s sister helped construct all the reception decor, which is completely DIY. The tables were covered with white linens and purple runners. The center pieces consisted of tall vases filled with large diamond shaped ornaments and lined with purple ribbon and crystal like gems. It was then topped with a purple paper pompom and the same crystal like gems for some added sparkle. These gems can also be seen around the handmade napkin holders and in the center of purple flowers on the tables to tie it all together.
There are many traditions in the Italian culture when a daughter gets married. One in particular being the ribbon cutting, which takes place at the front door of the family home before the bride heads off to the church. The parents of the bride hold a ribbon which is then cut by the bride. The cut ribbon represents the parents giving the bride away and good luck as she leaves the family home.
The ceremony was held in the Catholic Church, surrounded by family and friends near and far and there wasn’t a dry eye to be seen (including mine lol) as the couple recited their own written vows to one another. Relatives surprised the couple with thrown rice and bubbles as they exited the church, another tradition that could not be overlooked.
You will quickly see the humor this couple shares with their bridal party when you look through their portraits. This lovely group of people made it so easy to do my job, even with the unpredictable weather changes that Prince Rupert is known for it didn’t stop us from having fun. We were so thrilled the weather changed from rain, to clouds, to full out sunshine. We started at the waterfront, where the bridal party was daring and ready to do anything I asked which included jumping off a wall that borders the waterfront, and a bridesmaid face off. Later we were off to the historic courthouse building which is in the center of Prince Rupert, a popular spot for portraits.
Rich purples and blues make a romantic wedding theme that will make your and your guests’ hearts sing. Besides the beautiful colors, we love all the textures in this purple and blue wedding theme. Sequence, crystal beads, lace and frills—it’s all too beautiful not to fall in love with.
Psst. Here are the ingredients for this wining theme: plum, orchid, lavender, heather, muted teal and seafoam.
This invitation shows off flowers in a romantic watercolor style that guests can cherish as a special keepsake. Send your favorite design and get your guests excited to see your style come to life.
Bridesmaids For a unique bridal-party look, pick out mix-match dresses in bright purple, plum and lavender with different textures like lace and frills. You’ll be pleased with how all your colors and your bridesmaids will love putting on their own special dress.
Boutonniere Pin on your purple and blue wedding theme. Colorful flowers make beautiful boutonnieres that accent your partner, groomsmen and family members. Use greenery, lavender or neutral plants (like wheat) for your floral filler, and then add colorful flowers in purples and plums.
Tip: For fresh looking flowers all day, choose florals that aren’t too delicate and that can hold up to the whole day.
Shoes Glitz and glam always looks great on the bride. Don’t be shy—wear those vibrant, sequence shoes that you love on your wedding day. They will look lovely in photos and will give you a pop of color.
Lavender Lemonade Infuse your drinks with flavor and color that match your theme, and style and taste your guests will love. Lilac lavender infused lemonade makes the perfect refreshment as a non-alcoholic lemonade, or for a cocktail version, add vodka.
Chandelier Enhance your indoor or outdoor ambiance and set the mood with light and style. Hang chandeliers with draping crystals in purple for something stylish and elegant. Bistro lights, candles and up-lighting are other ways to keep your venue romantically lit throughout the night.
Macarons Keep your guests content throughout the night with a dessert bar. Set up a table at your reception where guests can grab a slice of cake or an assortment of finger desserts, like these rose macarons. The dessert bar is a trend that gets everyone up to mingle and ready to dance…right after grabbing a macaron.
Teal Door Before your wedding day, think about where the good spots are to take your wedding photos. Stone walls, hallways and large doors make beautiful dramatic photo ops. Create more backdrops by painting furniture and doors in your colors.
Cake Give your wedding cake a special up-do with layers upon layers of lavender ombré frosting. Use your purple and blue wedding theme for inspiration. To make your cake a stunning centerpiece, add wedding flowers around or on the cake.
If you’re looking for a romantic theme that uses vibrant colors, then a purple and blue wedding theme is just your style. Add your personal touch with purple and blue florals, dresses with textured lace, and layers of frosted frills on your cake.

We are overjoyed to be showcasing this adorable, vintage wedding with you all.
Melissa and Mike held their December wedding at TheMansion At Valley Country Club, in Baltimore Maryland. This mansion was built in the 1800s, and has since been renovated when former NFL star, Art Donovan, purchased the property. This venue offers gorgeous fireplaces, elegant chandeliers, a grand Victorian staircase, stunning oil paintings, a sport’s bar, and even an old cocktail room. What more could newlyweds ask for?
This winter wedding has beautiful, deep purple hues paired with soft shades of grey. Their special day is traditional and oh so elegant. We are swooning over all of the twinkly lights and dangling chandeliers. But we especially love the fun modern twist, near the end of their wedding!
