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?

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.

Purple Theme Lake Wedding in Seattle

Today, we are loving this fun lakeside wedding! Friends and family from all over the country came to be with these two lovebirds on their special day. From the amazing pink wild flowers, elegant purple bridesmaid dresses, and hilarious photo booth props, these two knew how to throw a great party.

Emily is a nurse, and Andrew is an officer. To pay homage to their careers, they made sure to include some heartfelt and unique details in their ceremony and reception. They were married in a quaint church, located on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Seattle.

One of their favorite moments from the reception, was when Emily and Andrew tried to cut their wedding cake. Their knife cutting skills could use some work- but luckily for them, it provided some huge laughs for all of their wedding guests. It truly was the perfect summer day. We love seeing a wedding theme that reflects the two of you!

Grey Classic Wedding on High Grove Estate

Today, we are so overjoyed to be sharing this stunning classic wedding inspiration with you all! Set on an elegant Southern estate overlooking Lake Laurel, you’ll quickly see why these vendors fell in love with its vintage charm.

Perfect for any time of the year, this chic color palette is neutral enough to be used during any season. We love the various grey hues, and baby blue colors paired with just a hint of mint. Though this wedding feels traditional, it also encompasses some boho style flare. This swoon-worthy wedding dress has an embroidered lace bodice with an illusion neckline. If that doesn’t make you fall head over heels, the cathedral train will!

Their elegant floral watercolor invitations set the tone for this event. Filled with soft creams, pastel blues, and chic grey tones, this vintage design perfectly matches the reception decor.

A Romantic Southern Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are swooning over this seriously stunning styled shoot! There are so many things we love about this piece- its romantic charm, the golden summer hues, and the vintage Rolls Royce automobile. If you are thinking about hosting a summer outdoor wedding, take notes on this epic traditional wedding inspiration.

There is something so nostalgic about Charleston; we are forever smitten with the Spanish moss that dangles along the old trees, and the ageless brick homes that live within its city limits. It’s a quaint little city that almost seems to take you back in time. Though any wedding theme looks stunning in South Carolina, we can’t help but fall head over heels for a soft color palette here, where the scenery does most of the talking. This formal wedding used our premium foil pressed wedding invitations to tie in their chic theme.

Make sure to also check out the fun creative video down at the bottom! #swoon
