I used to not be one for the color purple, but consider me a changed woman because I cannot seem to get enough of it these days. And this stunner at Athol Hall from Jilske Photography is only pushing me farther into the depths of this rich and vibrant hue. Because when you’ve got the beautifully saturated florals to frame a wedding of a Bride and Groom so joyous and full of fun, you just can’t resist.

From the Bride… After anxiety about the weather, we were blessed with the most beautiful day. Preparations were accompanied by a best of the ’90s countdown on Music Max, so there was much singing while we had our hair and makeup done. The ceremony was short and beautiful with lovely reading from our families. Guests enjoyed drinks on the lawn while the bridal party headed to the beach for photos. The reception highlights were definitely the speeches. There were lot of laughs and a few tears, as well as the the dance floor action, which included a hilarious rendition of Thriller. My favorite moment was seeing Bobby at the end of the aisle. I was so overcome with emotion, nerves and excitement I just had to hug him. Another was when our MC announced us as we came into the reception and the room just exploded in cheers; it was amazing.
