Purple Paradise Wedding || Elle + Ryan

Elle and Ryan had a Purple Paradise Wedding! I’ve done many purple weddings over the years, but this one definitely stands out! Keep scrolling to see how they added splashes of purple throughout their magical day…

The flowers and bride’s bouquet were done by Mac’s Floral.  The rich colors of the bouquet were so stunning!

Elle’s father normally wears baseball caps and she told him that he couldn’t wear one to the wedding. So when he came in with a cowboy hat on (which he never wears), Elle couldn’t help but laugh!  It was a funny and sweet first look moment with father and daughter.

Then it was Ryan’s turn for a first look of the beautiful bride.

The highlight of my day was when the flower girl and ring bearer entered the room. Or should I say, ran into the room panting?! Rosie and Oliver were the cutest little additions to the wedding party. These pups were even in their engagement photos! You can tell how much Elle and Ryan love their fur babies!

Since the wedding was in October, Elle and Ryan were expecting fall-like weather. They unexpectedly got some snow as well! But the white snow and Elle’s white dress clearly made the reds and golds in the trees pop, so this weather was meant to be!
