Talking about this purple wedding inspiration up on The Petal Report today! This past fall, I had the pleasure of working with Nathalie and Daniel on their Charleston wedding with Sage Innovations. This sweet couple decided to wed in the Holy City from the Big Apple as Nathalie used to live her. They absolutely fall in love with it’s marshes and Spanish moss. Nathalie was born in Holland and growing up on her family’s flower farm, had a true adoration for pretty blooms. Having the florals be one of the most important aspects to her, I brought her to Branch Design Studios. They were able to create a one of a kind purple infused floral board. I would say it turned out pretty amazing, wouldn’t you?! It was pretty much the epitome of purple wedding inspiration.

As Nathalie and Daniel were combining their two families, it was very important to them to include their three children in the ceremony and reception. With a group hug during their vows and a family “Chicken Dance” at the reception, they were able to incorporate their biggest fans in their wedding day. If you are someone looking for a lush floral design or a lover of all things purple, I have a feeling this wedding will be right up your alley! Hyer Images‘ beautiful pictures can be found below.

When it comes to your ceremony alter, there are thousands of different ways you can dress up the space. Whether you are looking for a romantic space filled with flowers, something more unique such as vintage doors to fit your antique theme, or letting the natural backdrop do the job, this is a perfect place to set the scene for your overall wedding. I have gathered some of my favorite petal worthy alters below. As you can imagine, I am all for the flower filled ones!

I like to call this post Color Me Smitten. Because, oh boy, are you all in for a treat! If you have not already seen on my Instagram (as I have been blowing it up with these pictures so I am sure it was hard to miss) I had the opportunity to team up with Cottage Hill Magazine to create this swoon worthy elopement shoot with Sage Innovations. They sent over some inspiration pictures for what they wanted this shoot to evoke and let me take it from there. As I am sure you have been able to tell, I absolutely love bright colors so wanted to brighten this white, green and blush wedding world with some vibrant pinks and purples. With an amazing team of vendors, we were able to bring my vision of an intimate, yet bright and ethereal shoot to life. I think my favorite element was either the lattice bench with florals on it or the custom made wedding gown by Emily Kotarski Bridal. Talk about stunning! Huge shout out to the amazing people who trusted me to join in on the fun and for creating a jaw dropping shoot.

Happy Planning!
