The blog is looking quite pretty in purple today, isn’t it!? We can thank Marta Locklear for that! Christine and Dimitrios’ Virginia wedding was popping with a palette of grays and purples. They’re Alexandria venue, Hotel Monaco made for a fun and unique backdrop for their classic and elegant affair. And don’t forget, we’ll be back later with their wedding reception too!


From Christine: My vision for our wedding style when I started planning was classic elegance. My vision for our overall wedding was fun – I wanted everyone from me and my husband to my single friends to my husband’s 80 year old Greek aunt to have fun! To keep it elegant I focused on keeping my decor simple, but again classic. I went with a purple, silver, and pearl color pallete mostly because I love purple, and the deep purple hues went well with my December wedding.
