Wedding planner, Fearon May, recalled,  “One of my favorite moments of the day was when they did their first look. This couple had been dating for 9 years before getting married. They were high school sweethearts and when they saw each other for the first time they made out like school kids…I have done a lot of weddings but I have never seen a couple so in love and affectionate with one another.”

The wedding party looked polished wearing purple hues to match the general purple color scheme.  The bridesmaids carried bouquets of lilac roses and orchids with handles that were adorned with rhinestones.  The groomsmen accessorized their grey suits with purple ties and socks.

There were lots of thoughtful details and personal touches that made this a stand out wedding, including;

  • a hand rolled cigar bar
  • elegant fabric draped walls and ceilings
  • large chandeliers and hanging crystal garland
  • centerpieces of grand white tree branches scattered with orchids and modern, pungent purple and white  floral arrangements of different heights
  • luxurious linens and beautiful designer chair covers (I’m obsessed with those chairs)
  • table edges adorned with thick crystal banding
  • a designer head table
  • light up lounge furniture
  • A dessert bar full of cupcakes and cake pops (in leu of the traditional wedding cake) surrounded by endless crystal strands
  • The couples favorite food truck, Krush Burger, serving up delicious burgers and fries
  • Guests that tore things up on the dance floor, including one awesome grandmother (pictured below)
