There is something so very elegant about purple, and these blush and plum wedding ideas surely convey that elegance. Bethanne Arthur Photography teamed up with an exquisite group of Virginia wedding vendors to create a look that embodied Southern romance and a fine art aesthetic. She is joining us today to share more about the inspiration behind the design:
“Earlier in the year, Pantone announced Ultra Violet as 2018’s Color of the Year, and I thought to myself that it would be so fun to utilize pops of this under-used color in a wedding inspiration photo shoot for couples planning their Spring and Summer weddings! I had visions of fine art, elegance, romance, shades of neutrals and pastels with subtle pops of the rich, bold purples. The shoot was held at the historic, Georgian-inspired mansion Great Marsh Estate in Bealeton, Virginia. The tall columns, grand estate, tree-lined driveway and open fields paid homage to its Southern roots. I wanted to mix the beauty of the Southern property with a romantic, elegant concept for this styled wedding. Beautiful, lush florals complimented the delicate details of the tablescape and paper goods.”
“The hand-lettered and hand-painted wedding invitation suite and hand-lettered floral signage by Prairie Letter Shop adds a beautiful, custom element to the design. We wanted to incorporate beautiful florals where we could, so creating a custom floral frame around an acrylic, hand-lettered sign with a sweet, love quote was such a fun project to include in this inspiration shoot. We’d love to see more couples do this!”
The romance of this design is seriously stunning, don’t you agree? Are any of you using a shade of purple in your own wedding design? We’d love to hear!
