Real Wedding – Liz & Mark, Birmingham, AL

June 2, 2010

Deep purple hues and teal accessories made this wedding one of the most divine.   This outdoor affair had its traditional aspects along with its very unique quirks that only showed the personality of the bride and groom at it’s finest.  Deep purple accents adorned the wardrobe of the groomsmen and bridesmaids along with the sexy stilettos of the bride and svelte sock of the groom.  Thought went into every detail.  The bride wore a traditional mermaid style gown that made her look radiant as her lace veil only complimented her antique jewels.  The groom wore the traditional tux that allowed the bride to the showstopper she was meant to be.  Guests were surrounded by purple orchids, blue hydrangea and pale pink roses – which were accented with silver lanterns during the outdoor ceremony.  The bride and groom wed under a wooden gazebo with beautifully strung white lights.  Simple and understated yet giving focus to the ceremony.  The reception was poolside with a black and white damask theme that mimicked the bride and grooms invitations, wedding programs and favors.  Modern purple and white paper lanterns where intertwined with antique chandeliers hung from the traditional white tent.  The teal cake with white damask trim was the statement of the entire reception – almost too beautiful to touch.

This couple had it all – modern, traditional and vintage – reflecting their own personalities with a statement of colors and accessories.
