Purple Canada Wedding LOVE

Sunlit kisses and deep purple details make this wedding stand out in the crowd. Not only is the inside of the Museum of Nature breathtaking, the surrounding grounds make our heart skip a beat as well. The details that Barbara Ann Studios captured during this wedding are stunning but it’s the tender moments between the bride and her groom that really made us do a double (and triple) take!

Outdoor summer wedding shoot

THIS is what true love looks like! The sweet pre-wedding shoot was taken by Radelle of Eternal Reflections Photography in Entwistle, Alberta, Canada at the gorgeous Pembina River Provincial Park. The photo session was conducted the week before Allison and Stephen tied the knot in July. Radelle said that she was booked the day of the couple’s wedding, but agreed to the pre-wedding shoot as a gift for the bride, who lost her mother just over a year ago in a tragic accident.

“Having been married with a parent who had passed away as well, I really wanted to help make her day extra special,” said Radelle.

We love the gorgeous, carefree backdrop of the park, and especially the rich red, purple, and yellow florals in the bride’s unique bouquet. This couple has us dreaming of summer again!


Purple elegance meets classic Hollywood

With old Hollywood details like a lace wedding gown, vintage fur jacket, and a slick Rolls Royce, Rachel and Jonathan’s winter wedding in Birmingham, Alabama exuded classic chic. The Cajun-style buffet, fleur-de-lis centerpieces, and rich purple details are also nods to New Orleans, a city that holds a special place in the couple’s hearts. Their photographer, Alisha of Alisha Crossley Photography, shared their sweet love story:

“The couple met at the University of Alabama through the groom’s sister. Rachel attended Jonathan’s fraternity mixer which turned into a night they’d never forget! On a whim, the two joined friends for an overnight trip from the gulf coast to New Orleans, LA during the formal! New Orleans has remained a treasured memory for the couple as the site that started their relationship.”


Lavender and pear wedding inspiration

Lavender pairs perfectly with pear green.  These soft, muted shades are classic and elegant, while the surprising color combination keeps this wedding modern. Pears are versatile decor and can be used as seating card holders or place settings. We also found delicious little pear-shaped favors, including candles and homemade jams. Accent this juicy color with soft shades of purple, like sprigs of lavender and chiffon bridesmaid dresses.  Serve icy drinks made with pear-infused vodka and mix roasted pears into the salad course.  Unexpected flower combinations are also a must: moss, white chrysanthemums, and desert succulents.  So pretty!
