The Bride Wore a Purple Wedding Gown And We're Obsessed!
A unique alternative wedding deemed a "styled elopement" with 15 of the couple's closest friends and family. The bride wore a purple wedding gown from ModCloth and a statement floral headpiece.
Russ and Erykah didn't want the typical wedding day. They wanted a tight-knit celebration surrounded by 15 of their dearest friends and family, so they planned what just might be the prettiest styled elopement ever. Of course, with a dress like Erykah's you have to have a statement bouquet and headpiece designed by La Fleur Du Jour to match, and our faves Michael and Carina didn't miss a single second behind the camera. Head to the gallery and see just how chic an elopement can be.

From Michael and Carina Photography...This elopement at the Salamander Resort in Virginia was intimate, stylish, unique and oh so romantic. The bride was rocking a lilac gown, a blueberry bouquet and romantic lace-up shoes. The couple married in a romantic Virginia setting, surrounded by only 15 friends and family. It was so beautiful! 

And while it was a unique elopement, nothing was missing at all from this wedding. The calligraphy paper suite, the neatly decorated farm table, and the elegant cake, all made for beautiful accents. Personal pies made a beautiful addition to the wedding cake. This celebration was so special, and I know the trendsetting couple will inspire many brides and grooms-to-be.
