Contemporary, vibrant and full of love—this wedding in Maryland will inspire you as much as it will make you smile. Every single image from Jewel and Reggie’s ceremony, captured by Natarsha Wright Photography, is overflowing pure bliss and style, making me one seriously happy wedding blogger this morning. The beauty is in the details planned by Howerton+Wooten Events and the purple perfection of the décor. And, of course, I love that they took a selfie after saying their “I Do’s”—#bestselfieever. Don’t forget to come back later this morning to see their regal purple affair with DIY details!
From Jewel: We wanted our loved ones to immediately recognize our personal style in every aspect of our wedding day. We’re a contemporary couple with hints of traditionalism: we aimed for our wedding day to be aesthetically beautiful but comfortable, too.
Our colors (plum, mint green, and silver) were used in our save the dates, invitation packages, florals/lighting, and dresses/wardrobe details for the groomsmen.
The handkerchief for my father included a quote from the song we danced to at the reception: “Your Joy” by Chrisette Michele.
